Out for a day trip with our baby girl Madison & needed a place to eat lunch with her in tow. What a great stop! We sat down on the patio at an umbrella table & before we could even ask they had brought out a water bowl for Maddie! Not only that, but the food was very tasty too!... More

We make our own Sour Mix, as well as buy it in the store. The waitress said, and I quote... "Margaritas are made with Orange Juice - there's Orange Juice in... More

Service at bar was great. Great view of the waterway. Also took my 3 grandchildren there and the staff was very friendly towards my wiggling kids, lol, at the restaurant.

The bar service was great! But then we sat down and didn't get helped for at least 30min. The food was okay.

Stopped in for a drink - service at the bar area wasn't great so we only had one and moved on. Nothing special here.

Stopped here because of the name. I am a pelican lover, once I saw the name decided a visit was a must. Our party had three fish sandwich and a salad. Service was excellent.

We ate here once and had drinks on another day. I thought drink prices were high. Food prices were reasonable. This was the only restaurant/bar open on OIB, so you have to pay a little extra because there is not a lot of business at this time of year. We had tacos and a steak sandwich. Very filling, especially after... More
