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.

A fraction of the menu is now devoted to the "raw” bar where diners can choose from lobsters, scallops, tuna to be done steamed, broiled and served cold, or torched. Hence, the seafood is not truly as raw as the usual Japanese sashimi, but more precisely prepared in a minimalistic way to showcase the sweetness of the meat.
The scampi ($18 for 3pcs) which resembled a baby lobster, turned out ridiculously sweet when dipped in the fragrant seafood-infused butter sauce.
The scallops ($18) were tender and juicy but the spotlight fell easily to the Trout Roe Brioche ($18). Half of the trout roe has been marinated with beetroot juices, thus explaining its dark red hues. Piled on top of buttered brioche, the roe brought a riot of "popping" effect on the tastebuds but they were a little too salty to go with the chewy bread.
I am usually quite lazy when it comes to de-shelling crabs but I gladly make an exception for these brown crabs ($69) which were delicate and meaty. The selection of oysters here are impressive as well.
Though we didn't get the XXL oysters that were harvested from Bouziges France, the Fanny Bay oysters from Canada ($8/pc) were already as big as the palm of an average male adult. But size doesn't count when it comes to oysters as it seems like the majority of us preferred the smaller speciales oceanes from France ($9/pc) as they were milky, sweet but not too overwhelming.
Family went for a night out on Saturday, the waiter that served us is very attentive and he recommended a fish as a main (Tooth Fish) for my husband and it turned out to be a fantastic choice, yummy! The food is good and the ambience is suitable for friends or family to chill out. Price is slightly high but one thing for sure, if you are a small eater, the snapper fish pie and those delicious desserts, can be shared by 2 persons.

I have always wanted to try The Pelican Seafood Bar & Grill but I am concerned my pocket will burn a hole. Since it was one of the Eileen’s birthday, we decided to have it here. Thanks to The Entertainer App, we get to enjoy the foods with affordable bill.
Poached Lobster S$28.00. The lobster is poached in a vegetable stock and served on a bed of fennel and avocado dressing. I am impressed with the presentation which delights our pleasure to kick start of the night. All I want to say is that everything fresh is so worthy to enjoy. Although, I find it pricey, but the lobster claw meat served was quite big.
Blue Cheese Creamed Spinach S$12.00. If you are a cheese lover, give this a try and you will love it.
Panfried Baramundi S$42.00 served with sides, carrots and shallots. The plating style was beautiful and neat. Crispy texture of the fish skin with the tender barramundi meat was a good choice as a main.
Snapper Pie S$40.00 is the recommendation dish in the menu. The dish served with asparagus, mushroom and cream sauce. It was presented with the wrapped pie with crusty and fragrance smell from the kitchen. Once we cut open the pie, we can see the thick cream sauce along with the ingredients. It is definitely worth the calories.
Glacier 51 Toothfish S$45.00 which is known as Patagonian Toothfish.
Clam Linguini S$32.00 tossed with garlic, chili and parsley. The clams are generous in servings and tasted fresh with the linguini.
The Pelican Burger S$35.00, is the Daily Catch recommendation in the menu. Burger serving with chopped steak, smoked ketchup and fries. I would prefer sharing for this as it can be quite filling.
When the Steamed Halibut with Beetroot served on the table, we were caught into surprise on the plain appearances. As there is a saying, never judge a book by its cover. This applies here as well. Halibut was fresh and I felt healthy having it but I will not order it as my choice of main. I personally feel that the average price of S$40.00 for mains should be more impressive than this.
Dessert that serves as a ‘birthday cake’ , the classic Whoppie Pie S$16.00.
The old fashioned crab cakes and baked snapper pie are tasty. Yellowfin tuna steak was properly cooked but missing some acidity. The pelican burger completely missed the mark. The patty is dry and overall just too salty.
The service was a little over the top. We couldn't make up our mind in the beginning and 2 different servers came over to our table more than 5 times to ask whether we are ready to order.
Throughout the meal and when we were ready to pay we were asked reapeatedly how the meal was by 4 people. Way overdone, repetitive and bordering on annoying. We would have appreciated more if the service is a little less "zealous".
