What our customers have to say about us!


We had our son's wedding reception this past Sunday afternoon at the Whitby Marina, and I would like to pass my gratitude to Pelican Events & Catering for helping to make the day a memorable one. Your staff arrived early, and did a fabulous job setting up our room and bar area.  The table presentations for the food and coffee area was really done well and looked great.  The hot and cold foods were delicious, and the desserts were wonderful.  And the staff was both attentive to our guests and very professional. Our thanks to you and Pelican for helping make the day great for us.  We'll be recommending you to our friends if they need similar services in the future.

Wedding Reception  


I just want you to know that you handled EVERYTHING in a most competent fashion and it was sooo appreciated !  It was great for me to be able to communicate with you by e-mail, as I’m unable to use the telephone. THANK YOU for your guidance and patience! The cakes were absolutely fabulous I had no doubts about that from the beginning. Everyone asked where I had them done!!!!! On my pick-up date the cakes were ready and even cheerfully transported to my car for me!  Such a nice feeling ! ! I look forward to doing business with you again, Kristy.  Your service couldn’t be better.  Thank you sooo much!

Birthday Celebration 

We’ve had nothing but great reviews on the quality of food from our attendees, something which, notwithstanding your great staff & support, is always a concern with these types of events. Hungry attendees are usually pretty tough customers.

          We really appreciate your support in the planning of this aspect. In my personal opinion, having yourself & Melissa join us on the site visit was the right decision and very helpful when it came time to put plan into practice. Though we were worried about the amount of time it would take to get that many people served, we were able to get everyone fed will inside of 30 minutes. In no small part thanks to the support of your staff on-site. The timing of various deliveries was excellent, ensuring that each meal/coffee was ready to go when needed.

          We do very hope that we can work with you on events in the future and will be sure to let you know when we’re back next. I know Durham Region Soccer Association, who ordered the Friday Night Hors D’oeuvres, was very pleased as well and will surely be in contact with you for their events.Many thanks again to the outstanding efforts of Melissa & yourself.

I just wanted to give my and my husband’s thanks and admiration for the most perfect dinner at our wedding in Prince Edward County on September 3rd. The food was by far the best we have had at any event. Working in a hotel I sometimes see the same food over and over again and everyone was expecting the stereotypical chicken or beef wedding. They were totally surprised! The food was delicious, the steak was seasoned perfectly. The sausage was juicy.  The chicken souvlaki was my favourite! The salads were dressed to a tee. The servers were fantastic, knowledgeable of the food and extremely courteous. We didn’t have a single complaint or issue from any of our guests and are over the moon!Thank you so much for everything your team did! It made the night so memorable!

John and I wish to thank Pelican and staff for providing us a fabulous buffet for our party last evening.  There were many, many compliments made to the chef and our server was just great. At this point I have forgotten her name - sorry.  She was great. Thank you, Joan for assisting in the menu choices.  The menu was very well received and plenty for all.  Thanks you to Kristy for her personal recommendations as well.
We could not have asked for a better night.
Thanks again.
