The whole experience was great! The only issue was that the tables for indoor dining were extremely close and not covid friendly. Over all food was excellent and service was good.

Always delicious and a fun spot... music is always great... ask for table not in main area if the music is not preferred close while dining...the 2 dining wings, left and right of the main area with tables will give u the background music that can be enjoyed!
Mark is the best...wait staff terrific! And the food... the best!!!

The Pelican Cafe was a lively experience for a birthday celebration. The hostess, waiters and other staff were very nice and accommodating. The menu had a large variety of choices and our food was very good. Only criticisms were it was very noisy (and we sat outside) and there was a relaxed attitude toward wearing masks. (i.e. people dancing without masks; people walking into the restaurant without masks)

We would definitely recommend the Pelican Cafe particularly if you have been vaccinated as we have been.

We haven’t dined at the Pelican Cafe in quite sometime and especially since covid. Arrived early, therefore there were only 4 other people in the restaurant. Service was attentive and efficient. Caesar salad to start with as well as the fried calamari, the later was a small portion and did not impress. The main courses were well received...penne bolognese, shrimp francese and fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp. By the time we left there were more people in the restaurant, thankful we left at that point since social distancing wasn’t really observed in the room we were seated in.

It’s been a long time since I have gone to a restaurant and the service was excellent from start to finish! I planned a birthday lunch for a friend, the hostess was very accommodating-she placed birthday napkins & hung a birthday sign at our table! Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive! The food was amazing! Fresh, colorful, flavorful & delicious! Our server brought out a piece of cheesecake with a candle and sang happy birthday! I was impressed by the entire experience! I can’t wait to go back! Thank you for making my friends birthday lunch so special!!

What a lovely place to have breakfast!

Good food, great service, and a nice place to sit and catch up with friends. The waiter was attentive but we never felt rushed.

My omelet was prepared to perfection and the coffee was good plus I obviously had a magic coffee cup, because it was always full! (As I said, great service.)

We have dined at Pelican Cafe a number of times. This time we were celebrating a birthday. They really made it a special occasion! The waiter was so attentive (not overly so), very helpful. The servers bringing the food were also very courteous. The food from appetizers, entrees and dessert were all delicious!! Three of us had the veal special and the birthday girl had the braised ribs...so unfortunately we didn't try more different dishes to share! Cheesecake with a candle and the musicians there singing for the night (Tuesday) and sang happy birthday made it the finishing touch! Mark, the owner, always greets the tables so kindly. He runs a top notch operation! Definitely will be going back!
