Black Pelican is where you can enjoy fresh seafood, steaks, vegetarian dishes, sandwiches and some of the barrier island’s best wood-fired pizzas complete with a beautiful ocean view from the dining rooms and outdoor deck.

Dinner entree favorites include Prime Rib, Citrus Rosemary Brined Roasted Chicken Breast and Vegetarian Pasta.

The gourmet wood-fire pizzas are a popular favorite, with combinations you are unlikely to find anywhere else. The personal-sized pizzas offer delightful combinations of house cheeses (fontina, gruyere, mozzarella, romano and parmesan blend) and sauce options of creamy bechamel, tomato, pesto or herbed garlic oil, with a variety of unique toppings.  Consider the BBC (beef, bacon, cheddar) pizza or the Black Pelican pizza of tomato sauce, shrimp, Andouille sausage, sweet peppers, scallions, house cheese and oregano.

The restaurant is housed in an old life saving station, which is full of character showcasing Outer Banks maritime history. The building was originally Lifesaving Station # 6, constructed in 1874. Station #6 and its crew provided aid for boats and crews that were stranded along the oceanfront. The building also served as an active weather bureau. where the Wright Brothers used information to plan their experimental flights. In 1903, after their successful First Flight, the Wright Brothers sent the telegraph announcement from Station # 6.

The restaurant’s store offers unique souvenirs and interesting gifts and local artwork.

Walk onto any beach or pier in North or South Carolina and you’ll see a plethora of cooler models and sizes. Cooler technology has advanced rapidly in modern years.
