Skirt steak meal and Mahi Mahi were both amazing. Not to impressed with the poutines though, but probably just me.

My husband and I along with two friends truely enjoyed the experience and the ambience. The food was delicious. The conch fritters was filled with conch and all our menus with the fish items were sumptuous. I will strongly recommend the blackened Mahi Mahi.... The view was amazing. Thanks for a great evening...

Great view, other than that the food was basic, i.e. I've had better bar food. Service was ok and the prices were sky high.

Did I say it was a nice view.

The view is spectacular. The food was surprisingly delicious. The meatballs, salad and the fish tacos were really good! Our server, Brendan, couldn’t have been more attentive and accommodating. We will be back!

what a great little gem, we were able to see some of the planes from the air and sea show too!! The poutine is a must starter. The mahi tacos excellent . Everything very fresh. Hard to believe I never knew this place existed and I have been here for years. You can gawk at the fancy yachts on your way around the docks to get to the restaurant.

Ordered fish tacos and. Chose the side as Salad (other option was fries) tacos served on a plate not separated from the salad thus they got soggy and fell apart 🙃

The food was delicious, the view was beautiful and the restaurant is very nice located. Nice atmosphere, but the service was horrible. Our server was rude, with an attitude and he never asked how we doing, how is the food , if we need anything else etc. Overall was a great experience.

This was about our 5th time in the past 3 months. The fish of the day has been swordfish and is an outstanding choice. The atmosphere is relaxed with easy background music. Views are spectacular. Prices are reasonable. Food presentation is upscale. Many meat and chicken items in addition to an expansive fish and seafood menu. Parking is easy and complementary if you get your parking ticket validated by your server. We received a free drink by making a reservation with this app.

Pelican Landing is a gem located at Pier 66. We had a table with an amazing view of the sunset overlooking downtown Ft. Lauderdale. They have limited seating so reservations are encouraged. We will be back!

The atmosphere was fantastic as was the food. However, the service was not the best. Entering at 10am with reservations and an empty restaurant it took about 15 minutes for our server to actually show up. When it got busier we barely ever saw her again and had to flag down a different server for our check. She also brought out the wrong dish.

Gorgeous view- but that’s what you pay for. Food was mediocre at best (I had the fish tacos and sweet potatoes fries- they were overdone)
The house band was good and the view was lovely.

Having been once before and experiencing an enjoyable dining experience we decided to book through open table for our last night of our holiday
We booked for and arrived at eight and were shown to our table. We were then basicly ignored from thereon in. After twenty minutes with no one having come over to our table to take our meal or even drinks order and having seen other parties served who arrived after us we were debating whether to leave
The lady who had originally shown us our seats then came over our way but completely ignored us and served the people on the adjacent table who had just sat down. We then left. The restaurant was averagely busy and indeed had been a lot busier on our previous visit where we were attended to promptly
We were very disappointed with our lack of service, which has left a very negative impression of Pelican Landing.
As a foot note, we wandered over to pier 66 grill and arrived unannounced but were immediately welcomed and received attentive service throughout our evening there and some of the most wonderful food we have tasted in the US during our stay.
On the basis of our dining experience we would suggest diners avoid Pelican Landing and head straight for Pier 66 Grill for a fabulous dining experience

This place is in such an elegant location on the water, but has a friendly casual atmosphere.
You can look out on the intercoastal and see the yachts and boats pass by while dining.
