Dined here twice during my stay...once for lunch and another time for dinner. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is also. I would highly recommend Pelican Grill.

It has lovely view and decent food but a bit pricey for lunch. So keep that in mind if your on a budget. The staff was great from hostess to waiter.

The Pelican Grill is a nice place for dinner. The food and service are both great! You can sit on the patio and enjoy the gorgeous view. The inside is also nice too. Always look forward to eating here while staying at the resort.
