This met our expectation of a casual, moderately priced dockside restaurant with some basic seafood/fish choices. It also provided a westward facing water view from an upper deck with upbeat background music.

Nice atmosphere, friendly waiters. Seafood could be a bit more fresh. There wasn’t anything spectacular you on the menu but the views and wait staff were phenomenal. Will be back for sure.

The atmosphere at this location is excellent. Food is quite tasty. Drinks are great and priced well during happy hour. Can not go wrong with the view.

We had a reservation but realized it was not necessary. The service wasn’t great. They didn’t even acknowledge that we had a reservation. It wasn’t the best day, so the experience isn’t the best. We sat outside while we decided what we wanted. But the server was just not attentive. We decided we didn’t want to stay and she was rude about it.

Pelican Landing is a favorite spot for our family. It is consistently excellent. Service is friendly. The smoked brisket sandwich is top notch! And... the outside seating is dog friendly!

Arrived 45 mins early, mentioned we had a reservation on OT, was it OK to be seated now? No problem they said, we will take care of it. Did not take care of it, got hate mail from OT that asked why we didnt attend. Location is wonderful, great views of Intercoastal Waterway. Got menu from server, showed 4 beers on tap, ordered one....came back and said do not have, ordered another one, came back later and said do not have. Ended up ordering a bottle. Ordered appetizer and 2 entrees. Waited a long time for appetizer. We were not in a rush and the view helped to offset the wait. Conch fritters were quite average. Entrees eventually showed up after a long delay, and were quite average as well. Brought bill when done, didnt come hack to get card for close to 10 mins, then was another 5 mins before we got the bill back. Again, a beautiful location for scenery but need to up their service and food quality.

Service was extremely slow. The restaurant was not ready to open at 10, my reservation time. I think the staff and customers all arrived at the same time.

The worst part was that the restaurant was dirty. Another guest had a dog. At least two servers proceeded to pet the dog and then deliver food. No hand washing! It is disgusting that a restaurant would allow their staff to pet animals and then handle food. I mentioned it to the manager. He did nothing. I think that is a health code violation.

Since it was our first time, wish there was a way someone could have told us that you cannot park near the restaurant since it is on the water. We were walking and it was pouring outside, so a little tricky finding it and our way back to an Uber. BUT, the staff and food made it very worthwhile as everything was great!

Pelican Landing is a fine place, especially in nice weather! It was amazing to enjoy a sunset at an outside table. We enjoyed the fish tacos and Red Snapper specials, and the half price house wine during happy hour (4 to 6, including a Saturday! The chardonnay and merlot were great) was a very welcome touch. Our waitress was Jenny, who was fun and quite efficient. Kudos to a fine place; Well worth seeking out (it's a bit hard to find and Uber and Lyft will only get you to the end of the parking lot at Pier Sixty Six Hotel, but its a short and very pleasant walk to the appropriate pier) A top notch place to wine, dine and enjoy the Fort Lauderdale breezes by the water.

Pelican Landing has a great setting with a happy hour until 6:00 pm. As a result our drinks were inexpensive . Most of the food is fried. If you like fried food, it's great. The setting overlooking the Fort Lauderdale harbor is nice, but we had a monstrous boat right in front of us which blocked part of the view.

My husband and I found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and decided we had to try it out. We went here for our anniversary dinner, and couldn't have been happier! It is a walk to the restaurant, basically down a long dock, and many access it via the waterways from their yahts. Upon arriving we went up the stairs and had a gorgeous view of the waterways. Our server Jenny was very thorough, kind, and prompt. Our food was amazing. The conk fritters, ceviche, wings, coriander chicken sandwich, and burger were all amazing! Definitely recommend!

Celebrated a relative’s Birthday here. The view overlooking the water was beautiful. Nice variety of light fare. I enjoyed the fresh fish tacos. Good assortment of tasty appetizers. The staff was very good. One member of our party walks with a cane and the manager drove her back to the parking lot in a golf cart(long walk down the pier to get to and from the parking lot). Because we were celebrating a birthday they brought us delicious complimentary desserts.

Great food, friendly service, stunning view of the water, and live music to cap off the ambiance. Music was perfect - but not too loud. We came with the family for an early dinner and watched the sunset. The menu was the right balance of family-friendly yet sophisticated. The kids and parents were all happy. This place was one of the highlights of our visit to Fort Lauderdale. We will come back next time we are in town.

The four of us went on Christmas Day wanted something without having a fixed menu and casual, pelican Landing was perfect. The weather was gorgeous I loved watching the boats on the intercoastal and although the food was very casual it was perfect for what we were looking for. We had conch fritters , two of us had the hamburger one of us had an appetizer andand the fourth dinner was the fish tacos all was delicious
