    Food is reasonable but made better by the restaurants' excellent setting. The drinks are good and our server was attentive.

    Fun place to chill with decent food and good drinks. Great sitting outside with the ocean breeze and sounds of the waves. They have some gnarly drinks and I like their mahi mahi tacos.

    Sat outside and enjoyed the view. Service was slow but nice enough. As a vegetarian they had very little to choose from and ended up ordering the Strawberry and Feta Salad which was yummy and came with candied pecans and an excellent raspberry vinaigrette. Best place for views and and the sounds of the ocean made even more enjoyable.

    We were visiting Flagler Beach for the first time and decided to stop in the Funky Pelican for a few drinks. We happened to luck out with 2 exceptional bar tenders, Crystal and Danielle. They were both very welcoming and attentive; a true asset to this establishment. Highly recommend Funky Pelican and will stop back when we’re in the area in the future.

    Highlight of visit: Our bartenders, Crystal and Danielle

    Best breakfast and views at the beach!! Vibe awesome and staff cool and friendly. Shrimp & Grits are killer and better half loves the Breakfast Flatbread. Their version of Bloody Marys are amazing with shrimp, cheese and Slim Jims... sounds weird but it works very well. Wish I could have this every day!

    They have the best viewing deck in Flagler Beach which is large with unrestricted views. Fun place to eat and drink and watch the beach goers. Many delicious items on the menu but I favor the Caribbean Combo with Mahi Mahi. Drinks are also awesome and I recommend the Funked Up Mary which is a bit pricey but is quite a slow drink. Service can be lacking sometimes and funny enough usually worse during slower times.

    Love the food and location but the service needs some work. Been here many times and yet to experience good service. Either long waits to get seen or attended to, drinks and food take forever, server in a pissy mood or wants to talk politics more than take our order, one we asked to speak with a manager and I'm convinced she just got a friend to come over and talk to us!!! BUT the food is good and we like sitting outside here with the views. This is not like Finns or Golden Lion where you're hundreds of feet away and across the street from the beach, here' you're right on it, so you can really smell and taste that sea air! Makes everything so much better.

    Our server was over opinionated and negative really ruined the meal, which was a shame because the food and setting were both top notch. She made us feel uneasy and we would go again but will request another server if we got her again.

    All the other restaurants along the A1A in FB claim to be beachfront but this the only one that truly is!! The location is fantastic and you get the best views here without sitting on a tight roof. Food is amazing and we come for lunch most weekends. Service can sometimes be not so good but no complaints on anything else.

    Had to wait for a table but was well worth it for the amazing view and delicious food. Our party of 5 all raved about their breakfasts and the Mimosas and Funked Up Mary's were so good. My Crab Cake Benedict was excellent our server was really on the ball. Could not find fault in our experience here and can't wait to return.

    Incredible ocean views and love sitting outside at dusk. Food is delicious and drinks are awesome. The Poke Salmon Tower is amazing and the Caribbean Combo is soooooooo good. Really good mixed drinks and make sure you try their Orange Creamsicle specialty. One of Flagler's best restaurants hands down!

    Highlight of visit: Poke Salmon Tower - Can't get enough!

    Always have a good time here with its fun atmosphere and great views. Nice to watch surfers and beach goers as you dine. The Shrimp and Grits and the Jambalaya are awesome and their cocktails can be really over the top but all have tasted good. We've never had a bad meal or service here and we visit often.

    Highlight of visit: Maddie's Shrimp and Grits

    Been a few times and always like the food and love the views and setting. Service is on or off though. Wife loves their salads and I like their Fish Mac sandwich. Good mixed drinks and cold beers.

    One of only a couple of restaurants in Flagler that are actually oceanfront. The atmosphere is fun and the food is quite good. The Twisted Mac & Cheese is awesome and well worth trying! Service friendly but can be slow some days but who cares when you have that view!

    Went here with another couple. The view of the ocean is nice, but the service ? Not here. We waited for about a half hour and no one showed up... we then decided to cut our losses and depart... never to return.

    I have eaten here a few time but last night I was extremely disappointed with the quality of the food. I love sitting on the deck and the wait staff were awesome. But the food was dry and over cooked. If I have to be honest the food isn't worth the price. We had the gator bite and calamari for appetizers. It was OK. I wouldn't have it again. While my kids had the chicken tenderloins, I had the Caribbean Combo and I do not recommend it. The fish was dry and over cooked along with the shrimp. I personal wouldn't not return here anytime soon. I think their are better restaurants on the beach side.

    I've been coming to the Funky Pelican restaurant (previously The Pier restaurant) in Flagler Beach for breakfast every year for almost 10 years now. We love the ocean view and enjoy watching the surfers in action. Today’s visit has changed that tradition. I won’t be back. We checked in to breakfast at 10:15. we waited to be seated for over 20 minutes. Once seated, we waited over 20 minutes before a waitress came and took our order. Then we waited for almost another 20 minutes until we got our food. It was a little crowded, but there were 5 empty tables inside and more outside on the deck. When we received our food, they didn’t bring my hashbrowns with my meal and it took me 10 minutes to flag down my waitress for me to ask for my hashbrowns. They were served quickly after that however, they were cold. Eric and Heather‘s toast was burnt on one side and they didn’t want to complain but I said something to the waitress. she said “oh it’s not burn, it’s just what it looks like when it comes off the grill”. Huh? It wasn’t mine but if it was I would’ve been scraping off all the black that was on one side of the toast. either that or ask for a new piece of bread.

    You can't better the view here which is especially enhanced with a nice breeze on a beautiful day. Plus the smell of the ocean definitely increases your appetite! We really like the food here for breakfast but other times we find it about average. But they do have a good variety on the menu and portion sizes generous. Drinks are always good. They have a fun theme and service is friendly. Just make sure you sit outside.

    Highlight of visit: Breakfast is excellent.
