The sea has much to teach us: its tides foretell the lunar cycle, its salt treats us to delicious shark jerky, and its colourful creatures prove that nature looks better in Blu-ray. Celebrate the big salty puddle's sagacity with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of dinner, or for $7 get $15 worth of lunch at Pelican Fishery & Grill on Bank Street. What began as a comprehensive fish market in 1978 has morphed into a deep-sea eatery with lunch and dinner menus chock full of homemade sea eats and sides. With a focus on high-quality wild and sustainable seafood, the chefs at Pelican Fishery & Grill cook up a variety of aquatic delights using the freshest fish from each of the day’s four deliveries dropped off by career-changing storks. Lunch fare includes lighter dishes such as the grilled fish sandwich topped with chipotle mayonnaise ($11), and dinnertime cuisine gets hot and heavy with entrees such as the bouillabaisse ($26), a savoury stew of fish, shellfish, shrimp, and lobster bobbing in a warm broth. The interior’s cool blues hues are characteristic of Picasso underwater period and brightly coloured artwork is a feast for diner’s eyes.

  • It's hard to get fresh sea food in the city where there is no ocean. So it's important to rely on business' [sic] such as this one to supply us with the seafood we deserve! – Chantal Sarkisian, Urbanspoon
  • A good restaurant starts and ends with the quality of the service. At the Pelican Grill it was very knowledgeable, very friendly in a professional way, they talk to you as if they are sharing your dining experience. – DineWineTraveler, TripAdvisor

Customer Reviews

Renovations look great, awesome atmosphere, great service and when I mentioned it was my wife's birthday they provided an awesome crème brule that was to die for and we will be going back.

As always, a very good meal and great friendly service. I shop at the Fish Market on a regular basis and have never had a bad experience. One of the best things is that no matter how busy they are they can take a minute to answer questions about your purchase.
