We arrived early but were seated promptly. The restaurant was busy and our server had a large group next to us to serve as well so while we could have used a little more timely attention, he did a good job. When we are away, we like to order things that we ordinarily do not see on a local menu. Everything was prepared well, looked nice and tasted good but neither of us would have ordered the same again.

Friday night and Pelican Cafe was hopping with live music until 9pm. Even though the restaurant was bustling and busy, the service was amazing, attentive and fast. We had been talking about trying Pelican Cafe for quite some time. We made reservations for my boyfriend's birthday. The hostess put little happy birthday napkins on the table-nice touch. We ordered the lobster ravioli and the black grouper special. Absolutely delicious! They even gave us a complimentary dessert for the birthday boy! I would recommend Pelican Cafe to everyone who wants to have an enjoyable evening with fantastic cuisine.

My friends and I headed to Pelican Cafe on a Thursday at 11 for brunch. All 3 of us were anticipating the bowl of fresh made donuts featured with brunch. What a shock when 3 stale chocolate iced donuts were delivered to our table! We were told that’s the last of the day! WHAT JUST HAPPENED? Seems like that bowl of warm just cooked cinnamon donuts is just for Saturday and Sunday. Oh well, not worth the calories let’s move on to ordering. Two of us got the crab cake sandwich $19 and our friend the challah french toast. Crab cake tasted like a fish cake and the challah french toast just so so. So not worth the drive or the dollars. Really disappointed with Pelican Cafe. We won’t be back, off our radar!

So welcoming! We arrived 10 mins early for reservation, hostess guided us to bar, "created" a space for us on patio when no bar sears open, took our drink order and ensured we were comfortable. Waiter equally accomodating, food was good but bit pricey, likely covering the nightly live music. Nice spot.

Server was very nice but we had to get our own napkins, salt and pepper, and jelly. We also had to ask him to remove our plates, twice. The hostess was fantastic and the ambience and food excellent. I will come back as I always do... love the place. Just hope for better service next time or a different server.

I know Mark is not going to like this, but if I didn't comment it would not be beneficial to Pelican Cafe. I order the Veal Medailons special and the meat was overcooked and like shoe-leather. I was hungry as we only eat a brunch and dinner. The broccolini was good but cold. I left the mashed potatoes. First time ever, dinner was not up to Pelican standards.
See you next week. Go back to my standard Salmon.
