The Pelican Seafood Bar & Grill is located at One Fullerton with a picturesque view of the Singapore River serving American seafood dishes as well as steaks and grills. The restaurant ambience is warm, ageless and adapts a nautical theme with decorative objects such as deep sea diver helmets.

Great food by the waterfront

The Pelican Seafood Bar & Grill serves classic east coast American cuisine with a focus on fresh seafood and wood-fired grilling. We used The Entertainer voucher for a 1-for-1 main course which we had the ribeye steak as well as unlimited Belvedere cocktails.

Ribeye Cap Steak ($58) - I quite like the texture of it - juicy and tender. The steak itself tasted great even without any condiments. Skate Wing Chop ($36) - with burn lemon butter. It tasted more like the angmoh style of our usual sambal stingray. Fresh and soft meat, accompanied with crispy fries.

We were attended by the manager most of the time and thank you for the great service. We dined outdoor during the National's Day Parade full dress rehearsal last week, our stunning table view was facing the exact spot for fireworks! Overall, my dining experience at The Pelican was such a joy especially spending it w great company. Special thanks to The Entertainer.

Staff is very friendly and helpful

We ordered two main dishes, and total bill was about $88 but as we were using The Entertainer app, we were entitled to one-for-one which makes the meal a lot more affordable. The decor and staff were lovely and the food was good too, especially the pie and fries. Would love to return and try out the other items on the menu.

Nice ambience, great service, great food

First up was the complimentary sour dough bread. It took us a while before we figured that the tiny bits embedded in the bread were seaweed. The seaweed had a strong "sea smell" and this was the beginning of a good meal.

We had the Old Fashioned Crab Cakes ($22). It's been a long time since I ordered crab cakes. The crab cakes here comprised of lots of crab meat, encrusted in a crispy coating and accompanied with tartar sauce.

The Baked Snapper Pie ($38) was visually pleasing to begin with. It's obviously shouting, "Hey! I contain fish!" After you reluctantly use your fork to pierce through the flaky crust (how can anyone destroy that beautiful fish motif), you reach a bed of creamy stew with boneless snapper. The key is that it is boneless. We finished every single drop of the stew because it was not too salty, and just a bowl of good stew.

While contemplating whether to order dessert, we gave in and got a Double Chocolate Whoopie Pie ($16). This is enough for two to share because it's incredibly rich. You will definitely like it if you are a chocolate lover.

The decor and ambience of this place was excellent. Service was attentive but not intrusive.

The quick lunch items - clockwise from left: fish & chips, lobster roll and steak

Quick lunch, but you get plenty

Quick lunch at The Pelican isn't what it seems. These items from their nine-item quick serve menu (served only on the deck, outdoors, $18-$42) comes in large portions, big enough to induce a post-lunch food coma if you inhaled the food like we did. The New England lobster roll ($35) is stuffed with generous chunks of the crustacean, tossed in a light tarragon-Dijon dressing. The Pelican fish & chips ($26) is another good classic to have - crisp, crunchy batter coats two large fillets of snapper fish. Both dishes come with thick-cut fries sprinkled (generously) with addictive Old Bay seasoning. From now till 11 July, snap a food photo of any quick serve menu items, add "#thepelicandeck" and check in at The Pelican (Facebook or Instagram) and get the 1-for-1 main promotion the next time you dine in. We've made this real easy for you - you can a table online through us now.

extremely expensive

actually a good restaurant. But if you order a beer, you WILL be ripped off for good. a Pint goes for 24 SGD, which is by far the most expensive in Singapore. if you go 35 meters to the left, to OVEREASY, you will find that a pint costs 16 SGD. the management says this is because they don't sell pints, only half-pints. and have a pint is 12 SGD. that argumentation is laughable.
Locals and resident, who like me have been in Singapore for a while (9 years), have witnessed an inflation of almost 100%. and this is the reason why...some prices are abusively high. and as long as we accept and pay them, things will get even more expensive.
as long as The Pelican charges these fantasy-eduardo-saverin prices for a simple beer, i think there are other venues, which are as good and more normally priced.
