This is a great restaurant with great food! Sunday brunch is a little crowded and slow, but the food is fabulous.

We ate on the patio (view of parking lot). Wait staff wore masks. Food was very good. Entertainment was excellent. Would have been better if owner/manager hadn't been so drunk and loud..

We sat inside because they couldn't accommodate us on the patio, but we had the small back room to ourselves. Food and service were excellent. We were celebrating my son's birthday and they brought him a complimentary dessert. We love this restaurant and frequent it for special occasions.

My wife and I love dining at the Pelican Cafe.....earlier this week we went specifically to enjoy their live music entertainment. Both singers were outstanding as usual. The meal was fantastic....black grouper and a lemon francaise.....believe me it doesn’t get any better. Dinner on the patio under beautiful strings of blue and golden starry lights......a night to cherish and remember forever.

This last visit I tried their crab cakes and they were THE best. Tons of firm lumps of crab, the tiniest amount of crumbs to hold it together all with a golden brown crust. Fabulous!

Great place for Sunday Brunch....
You are greeted like they are happy you are there and as you leave, they can't say enough of " how happy you joined us"
We had a reservation and were seated promptly; couldn't have asked for better service.
You could make a meal out of the donuts but save room, the food is awesome!

Brunch was lovely. the kitchen screwed up on a few things. Never got the potatoes with my omelet which was supposed to be egg white, but was regular eggs. Other than that everything was excellent and Kyle did a great job. Very attentive and caring.
Carol was wonderful as usual.

Wonderful dining experience!
Nice patio seating, wait staff was very attentive. Food portions were large. Table next to us had a man who wasn't completely satisfied with his entree. The chef immediately came out and showed him the cuts of meat and the fresh fish he used and explained how he only used the freshest and best. He insisted on making the entrees again to the customer's liking. The other members of the man's party acted like he was just being difficult about his food. The chef then checked on us and added some sauce to a pasta dish because he said he noticed it was needed as he walked by.

The food was fine and the portions were huge. Enjoy the music would’ve enjoyed it more if it was not as loud. We purposely sat outside because of Covid but inside people certainly were not observing social distancing with people up and dancing without mascon right in the middle of the tables of the dining room and people crowded in the bar. In addition the owner/host was Friendly and outgoing but stopping at our table a few times with no mascon.

We were celebrating our Anniversary. We were greeted by Carol and Wes the second we walked in the door with HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! We were shown to our awesome table and were immediately greeted by the owner. We were all set up with an anniversary sign and napkins. Wes was our waiter and was excellent. Such an asset to the Pelican Cafe for sure. Dinner was excellent. Dessert came with a Happy Anniversary song! We love The Pelican Cafe!

This was the perfect spot for my Mom's 74th birthday. They sat us in a secluded, curtained off room in the front and it felt like we had the place to ourselves. The waitstaff was really attentive and made us laugh on several occasions. The owner came up a few times to check on us, and to ensure the food was all delicious (which it was). This is how you run a restaurant and get customers to come back, time after time!
