Birthday dinner for adult daughter. Monday night has live music. Food excellent as was service. Hard to talk as a result of music. We love it there but if you want to have a conversation try a different night. .

Mark Frangione has consistently put forth all of the ingredients for a complete restaurant experience....excellent food, all people working at Pelican are competent and make you comfortable..either being seated indoors or outdoors works....ultimately, the cost is inconsequential to your satisfaction that Pelican performs each and every evening...

The Pelican cafe always provides a terrific night out......Quality, service and a nice atmosphere. Their regular dinner menu is very good and we find their evening specials to be innovative and well prepared.
They provide entertainment most nights. It is pretty laid back .

My reception by the hostess was exceptional -- she was pleasant, smiling, happy and personable. The food was absolutely stupendous -- although pricey, it is one restaurant where I feel that it is worth the price. I would definitely go there again and would highly recommened it to my friends -- especially for the dinner hour. I attended the Sunday Brunch and while it was good, it was not as impressive as the dinner. Great and varied selections. Wonderful place to dine!!!

We love Pelican Cafe. The food and service are always fantastic. On this particular evening, the live music was much too loud and intrusive. Nearly impossible to have a conversation with our dinner guests.

Good food, Italian American menu with some good seafood specials. Being a NYer I am used to high prices, even so found 40$ entrees a bit much for the overall ambience.

The Pelican Cafe was wonderful! Every dish is made from scratch, and very nicely presented. We were a bit skeptical when we pulled up, but inside is very elegant, and the food was delicious. Our server was very attentive, and very accommodating for our young children (6&7 y/o). We can see why this seemed to be a popular spot with the locals!

We thought the food was wonderful! Our waiter was just terrific too. Very knowledgeable and helpful.
We were outside on porch and the ambiance there isn’t as nice as inside, from what we could tell. Some Florida Restaurants Have heavenly atmospheres outdoors with foliage and water views. This is near their driveway and Highway 1.
But this was the absolute best food and service and I’d choose this every time!

Dinner was delicious. Food is expensive but normal expensive for a good restaurant in season. Music was great! The hostess went above and beyond to make sure we were enjoying everything. Staff is fabulous and our food was exceptional! I had the shrimp special with pasta pockets and pesto. We also had duck, Scallop special, and linguini with clam sauce. Yummy yummy!
