Get a table on the deck, an adult beverage or two, and settle in for a leisurely lunch. The food was great here, I had one of the best hamburgers I have ever had. Husband adored his onion rings and fish sandwich. The blackened shrimp was TOO black, our friends should have sent it back. But when you are having so much fun and loving the scenery....who cares about the food? Make sure you visit the bathrooms, they are really fun.

I was visiting friends in Lake City and we decided to go to Cedar Key for fresh seafood. We checked the menu and decided to eat at the Pickled Pelican. The food was overpriced and horrible. The shrimp was rubbery and my friend's calamari looked like whole baby squids. Our waitress basically threw our silverware on the table after we had to ask for it. Definitely would not recommend this restaurant to someone visiting.

Good view but less than mediocre food and service. Obviously frozen, out of a bag shrimp used for the shrimp po boy. Clams were good with flavorful sauce, but still hoped for more in regards to quality. Service was subpar and had to go inside to find waitress to get check after waiting for quite sometime without any attention. Could've prepared a better dinner myself and just brought it out to eat on the pier for the view. Won't be back.

Never saw a salad with peanut butter ice cream for a dressing, and didn't have the nerve to try it, but the patrons at the next table did, and allowed me to photograph it for posterity. Enjoyed the deck and communing with the birds while enjoying icy adult beverages.
