The service was top notch, but that was about it. The food is average and extremely overpriced. It is a cool setup in an old house, but they don't have air conditioning. Would not return as there is nothing so unique on the menu that...More

We had a lovely lunch at the Crane and Pelican and would readily recommend this to others passing through this town. The meal was nice, the waitress friendly, and we had a nice view of the river. The Chicken and Dumplings are highly recommended.
