We had a great dinner and enjoyed the entertainment which made for a memorable evening with a party of our friends. Even with the large crowd the service was top shelf and the food was very good. The band's performance was excellent

We liked this restaurant. The food was fresh & did not come from a bag or frozen box. The waitress was very knowledgeable & filled our drinks without asking. The seafood gumbo is fabulous. We enjoyed our appetizers and meals. Good seafood selection. I can't wait to go back!

My husband and I went to Pelican Alley for Dinner on my Birthday. Everyone was very friendly and attentive. We had started with the chowder, it was outstanding! next we shared the seafood nachos , also very good. We both had specials as recommended by the server. I had the salmon, my husband the grouper. Both dishes were very good.... More

Tried for the third time, really WHY, did I. Service is ok, drinks, no real highlights here either, a 12 oz. New York strip....Market Price, please do not waste your time, the steak had obviously been frozen, thawed and frozen. It was not worth complaining as I knew we would never be back. Nice views, just very small, very cramped.... More

We came here because we didn't want to wait an hour to eat at the popular Pop's Grill. The food was fair. My son ordered chicken strips and of course they tasted like seafood. I ordered fried shrimp and they were soggy. We waited a long time for our food and our server decided to bring us the complimentary bread... More

We've been going to Pelican Alley for years (mainly for the view & occasionally to hear the fabulous band). The food isn't the best but the drinks are cold. One of the best spots to watch the sunset and thousands of snook in the evening.

Stumbled on to this place and really enjoyed the food. The portions are a bit large, so come with a appetite. I had a lobster mac and cheese that could feed 3 people. There was plenty of lobster pieces and it was baked perfectly giving the cheese and crackers a nice crust. As a bonus the prices were much better... More

We took a stroll over there from our hotel for dinner. Did not have reservations but the hostess was friendly and sat us anyway. We only order appetizers and they were delicious!

Wonderful place, great views, great food! Love love love the Fish Reuben. Consistent every visit, delicious food and cold brews. Great views of the drawbridge and all the boats. Dine inside or out, boats can pull right up and dock. Outdoor stage for live music. Limited parking. So much good to say! A don't miss! A++++
