Omg yum! Ice cream INSIDE a water ice?! Genius! The flavor combinations are endless and I haven’t had one that I haven’t liked. The staff are super nice too. They are fun to talk to and get orders out quickly. The outdoor seating area is pleasant, but unfortunately right next to a busy road. Maybe they should look into some more hedges or a privacy fence? Over all though, great product great people.

I love Pelicans. And I want to love this location because it is so close to my job. However, they never have enough staff. I try coming on my lunch breaks but it takes like 30 mins with just a few people in line. The staff that’s works here has great customer service and they are always so apologetic. Can y’all please hire some more staff. The weather is great and i would love to continue to come but this wait is ridiculous. And it does not matter to seem what time of day. People love this place! There is always a line.

Great place to bring the kids and relax. There's a nice spacious lawn area with corn hole and other games. Of course the snoballs are delicious!

Always a joy. Today I had lemonade grape from 102 basic choices and nearly infinite combinations. Perfect treat on a hot day, plus a panoramic view of Durham!

Love Pelican snowballs! Lots of flavors and options for things like adding ice cream or gummy worms. Have had to deal with some panhandlers if that bothers you, but it's really not a big issue.

First time experience at this place was pretty great. My only reason for not giving 5 stars is that there is basically no shaded seating area and the big green grassy area isn't fenced in or anything. I am guessing this may be because they don't actually own it, but I think they are missing a big opportunity. Parents of young kids like us are always looking for places like this, but have places where our kids can run around safely and without worrying too much. The shaved ice was great and I can't wait to go back and try more flavors.

Delicious shaved ice place with a ton of flavors and different toppings. The ice was great and the service was good. Only complaint was that they're outside seating was swarming with bees, which was not very fun when trying to enjoy the ice!

Low in price and delicious. If you like slushies/snow cones come here. If not, then don't?

I love that the employees are always cheerful. I love to see young people working and looking like they enjoy it. The variety of flavors is also great.
