Our owner at Pelican's Net ~ Coastal Grille & Draught House grew up in Hammondsport, NY, and by the age of 14, was already working in his mother’s restaurant where he learned to cook. After teaching culinary classes, and spending time teaching business courses in Eastern Europe, he decided to return to his hometown and the restaurant business.
Pelican's Net ~ Coastal Grille & Draught House opened in 2011, and offers a casual, coastal atmosphere, with the most popular dishes you’d find between New Orleans and Maine. Our menu includes a variety of fresh shellfish, live Maine lobster, crab legs, steaks, and other grilled meats and poultry, specialty sandwiches, house-prepared chowders, and nightly creative chef's features. Pelican's Net~ Coastal Grille & Draught House also serves local craft beers, Finger Lakes wine, and other specialty soft beverages.
Our signature items include seafood “steam pots,” premium choice beef, and house-prepared cheesecakes. We follow good classic foundation recipes that are time-tested and true.
Pelican's Net is just outside the village on Route 54 near the Curtiss Museum and across from Finger Lakes Beer Company, one of our fine local craft beer producers.
