I ordered the BBQ chicken pizza. It arrived 90 minutes later and was very dry and lacked flavour. It's reminded me of a pizza bought from a shop for a couple of ££. Very disappointing

The pizza here is terrific, and the counter staff is super friendly. They do serve beer here (in ice-cold mugs, straight from the freezer), but there's not much ambience. carry-out is probably best (5-stars for the carry-out...maybe only 4 stars if you eat in).

We wanted something quick tasty and cheap (ish). This place is primarily a delivery place, but it has two large tables if you want to eat in. The staff were very pleasant. We ordered a medium pizza to eat in and I ordered a beer. In the UK it is very unusual for takeaways to sell beer, so imagine my... More

We orders pizza while staying in Pacific Grove. The pizza was hot on arrival, tasted great and was very fast.

We needed a place to eat late at night after walking through the wharf and found this on the Internet. Everyone was friendly, they were quick to serve and the pizza is delicious! The cheesy breadsticks are essentially a cheese pizza cut into strips and I was totally okay with that! Don't expect a large sit down area, expect a... More

I went here with some friends after someone recommended it to us as being "one of the best pizza joints in Monterey". The pizza here was awful - if this is the best Monterey has to offer, we will be making our pizza at home. They skimped on the tomato sauce and cheese. We felt like we were eating bread... More

If you are looking for pizza by the slice, this is the place in Monterey. We have tried other pizza places but keep coming back. The selection of toppings is limited to the basics, but if you want 2 large pieces of pepperoni pizza considered to be a "slice" this is where you can get it at a reasonable price.

DE-LI-CIOUS!! That's why for over a decade I always make a point to hit up PELICAN PIZZA when visiting Monterey - great staff and easy on the wallet. Practically worth a trip from the UK alone, haha!

How are there so few people who don't know about this place?! We've lived in Monterey 3 months and we've tried almost all the local pizza places (because who doesn't love pizza??), and this is our fave. They deliver pizza, wings, cookies, beer and wine...umm, awesome. They have great signature pizzas...cool. The prices are by far the cheapest we've seen... More

We were hungry and this looked like a great spot to feed 4 hungry children. RIGHT and WRONG. Actually, the pizza was delicious and hot and fresh. This appears to be primarily a take out restaurant. There were only 3 tables available, fortunately, no one else was there. They had no ice on the hot day we visited. The place... More
