Description: Once upon a time on a dock in Naples, there was a little Pelican. His name was Larry "because that's what his Mama called him". Little Larry would sit around all day waiting for the local fishermen to come in so he could eat the fish that they would bring him. As time went by Larry, would do the same routine, float around all day in the sun and wait for the boats to come in. He was very happy but he realized he was also very lonely. He wanted to share his daily fresh catch with everyone. He thought: "Why not invite some friends over to share my fish with?" So the flock gathered and they ate the catch of the day with him. As word spread around more and more people came over and before you knew it there was no more room on the dock for everyone. That's when Larry decided he needed a bigger place to meet. He found a cozy little spot on Pine Ridge Road. Things went so well there, he had ice cold beer, drinks, a kitchen to prepare the daily catch and he added a menu of appetizers sandwiches and daily creations and decided to name it after himself: Pelican Larry's. Again things went so well that Larry had to open up another restaurant on a Immokalee Road. So now all of Larry's friends are welcome to come over for daily gathering of great people great food and great times. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

Seriously best atmosphere and staff. Always a good time and always prompt service! Ally is the best! She knows her sh**. Best drinks in the place. Last but not least very good food, fresh and amazing. When recommending a place for a good fun time, Larrys on pine ridge is the first.

“Never Again!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

We had previously eaten at Pelican Larry's about 4 times in the last 3 months. It had been delicious with out of town guests requesting to return twice. Tonight none of our favorite dishes looked the same. Oyster Po Boy had a different batter and were a fraction of their former size. Clams were over done and chewy with most of the batter breaking off. Grouper basket at $17.99 was dry with a different batter.
Server after bringing our water, took our order, dropped it off and never returned. After completing our meal and waiting, we had to approach a different server for our check. When we asked if the chef had changed, we were told no but different people work different nights. She volunteered that they had recently changed their cooking oil. She also noted that the clams appeared overcooked. We told her our original server never came back to see how our food was. There was no offer of any discount or any other compensation. We told her we would not be back. You can get a better meal at BoneFish Grill for less money with better service and much better quality.

These are some of the best oysters I have ever had, everything else we tried, which was an assortment of appetizers was also excellent. Lots of fun things to do at this restaurant, there seems to be something different every night.

“Great Neighborhood Bar and Eatery”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

The Food was hot and plentiful; and the service was good. It was a nice and friendly atmosphere. I loved the beans and rice! The salsa that comes with the fish tacos was so good I could have eaten it with a spoon! We will definitely go back again.
