Ordered jumbo grilled shrimp, all head and a medium tail. For $30? Waiter never returned to see how we were doing it offer more water. Will not recommend this place.

People watch with an ocean backdrop. Pricey, but a half price dinner special made it a reasonable value. The ceviche was terrific and the seafood pesto risotto was some of the best we've ever had.

We chose this restaurant at random, and were glad we did. The breakfast was spectacular, and the smoothies were the best we've ever had anywhere - even despite the fact that we had them modified to be gluten-free. Highly-recommended.

When you come to a restaurant in America as an Englishman, you expect the restaurant staff to be able to understand the phrase 'two poached eggs' considering it appears on most menus. However, this seemed a little difficult for the entirely foreign army of staff at Pelican Cafe and what I ended up with was most definitely not what I... More

This is a great place to people watch and have a good meal. The food is delicious and the service is very friendly. The outdoors dining is on both the sidewalk and on a elevated patio, both right on Ocean Dr. My only disappointment was that they have no iced tea. They have a varied menu with sandwiches, pasta, seafood... More

Last winter the menu mostly consisted of pre made items- as at most places on SoBe. But The Pelican seemed to realize we want better food than that so they put some effort into the food. Most dishes seems made to order- potatoes are pan fried and delicious. The waffles are really good. The French toas outstanding. The daily special... More

Overcharged price just like others Right on Ocean Dr, along with all the other hotels, restaurants, bars, clubs and that famous mango's tropical cafe. The food are not worthy to mention, but the hookah is worth to try with different flavor. but the price is overcharged, average cost for two may over $100 with alcohol purchasing.

The breakfast was fresh, tasteful and outrageously delicious! The staff was very attentive and the out door seating was freshing.

My first time in miami and my partner wanted to make it special for me and took me down ocean drive. We passed several restaurants and I wasn't impressed how the staff outside each "hounded" you to to come in. After passing several we stopped here as it seemed busy and good music. We ordered a tall cocktail each and... More

We were walking up and down the area, and like every other restaurant on the strip, they asked us to come in and try...however, they were really sweet and not dismissive like the rest. We sat down and had some great coffee and dessert, and they kept checking in on us to make sure we were happy.
