there are other restaurants available which have good food and service at a fair price so avoid going here as its expensive, service is slow and food is only ok.

Family Tradition ended tonight. I have been going to the Pelican for many years. It's never been the greatest to be honest but it's in a prime location so I pay a premium for that and keeping up a family tradition. This evening I was...More
