We were visiting Singer Island and came upon Pelican Cafe by accident while looking for breakfast our 2nd day there. We so enjoyed the restaurant we returned for dinner and breakfast again before our departure. We also recommended the Pelican Cafe to our friends who live in Stuart. Excellent menu and top notch staff . We are looking forward to returning our next trip back to Fla.

We hadn’t been to PC in over a year and decided yo take friends who have never been there. The Pelican Cafe now offers live music on Mondays and Tuesdays. I wouldn’t recommend those nights if looking for a quiet night out.

Food was good — duck was perfect; salmon was very good although not so the mustard sauce. The pasta and shrimp special was also excellent.

Service was poor. We sat down at 6:30 and meals were delivered at 8:30. We had to ask for our wine three times before they finally brought it to us.

They did comp us a free dessert to apologize for the delay.

Oh, check your bill carefully, we had to have a couple of items removed that were erroneously added to our bill.

Probably not going back.

Dinner with friends-been coming here for many years and as always, food and service excellent - however both the keyboard and singer were amplified so loud that it made any conversation impossble. Will not return when entertainment is presented unless it is presented in a more modified manner.

This was our second lunch visit in two days at Pelican Cafe. We loved this one too. Danny from Pittsburgh was our bartender and server. She was great! She poured good martinis and offered good, friendly conversation throughout. The food was delicious again. Although most of the Sunday brunch menu focus on traditional "brunch" items, we stuck with the smaller lunch section. I enjoyed the grilled chicken sandwich (slaw on the side) and my wife had the Grilled Mahi Mahi tacos (again). We were thrilled to have found Pelican Cafe during our visit to Singer Island. We'll definitely go back. Highly recommended!

Nice reunion with extended family at Pelican Cafe. Our waiter was attentive and gave great detail of the specials & repeated the specials for us. Everything was absolutely delicious! We requested an outdoor table and it was ready for us when we arrived. The owner of the restaurant stopped by our table to ask if we needed anything and to say hello. This is one of my favorite restaurants in the North Palm area.

This was our first visit to Pelican Cafe. We enjoyed it so much that we returned for lunch the following day. It's very cozy and casual. The food is delicious. The service is very attentive and personable. The table servers seem to do double-time as bartenders as well. They poured good martinis. For lunch we had the prosciutto panini with roasted peppers and mozzarella (slaw on the side), along with the grilled Mahi Mahi fish tacos (French fries on the side). Everything was perfect!

An overall great experience because all aspects of the dining out experience was top-notch
with some of the best food in the entire region.

It was a rainy night and the owner and his wife were outside handing out umbrellas for usage by guests.

Pelican Cafe is everything you would expect to find in an upscale fine dining restaurant. Excellent food, impeccable service, and ambiance. There were many selections on the regular menu and several specials in each category. We had a great meal and would return frequently..... If the prices were more affordable. Even for a New York City gal, they were quite high.

We were very disappointed this second visit. Our first visit was outstanding and that is why we decided to return and even bring our daughter. This second visit wasnt up to par. The waiter had to be asked 3 times to bring butter to our table. He also was very remiss in attending us. My daughter’s shortribs were very peppery. My veal and ravioli were ok but doused in gravy. My husband’s veal marsala was also doused in gravy and not flavorful. So we wont be returning any time soon.

The food at the Pelican Cafe was outstanding. My husband ordered the Chillean seabass special, his words, it melted in your mouth. I ordered the lobster ravioli. Out of this world!! It contained huge chunks of lobster claw meat!

I requested a secluded table, and we were not disappointed. Can't wait to bring visitors!

Lovely setting captures old Florida feel even though just off busy thoroughfare...brunch with white tablecloths and covered outdoor porch adds to ambiance...food is tasty altho not inexpensive...great service...several of our guests found chairs uncomfortable....too small with stiff upright backs.
