Food was very good, I would even say excellent. We had sushi, crab and fish. All of very high quality. But is it also for the beautiful view that you have to go. The skyline of Miami is amazing from the restaurant. We were a...More

Its a few times now that we've been to Res, but our first time for brunch. Good menu with lots of options - the view! Friendly staff, great cocktails - did I mention the view? Great brunch if you're in South Beach or the area.

So....you really just want to go here for the view! Maybe drinks outside at sunset and skip the food, it’s really only the best part. The food was really nothing at all to talk about and the service was painfully slow, even when it wasn’t...More

This restaurant has it all. The food is all types of scrumptious seafood and meat. I had the big, sea scallops. Go hungry. If you come away hungry, it's your own fault. Drinks are mixed just right (mojitos, of course).

Came here with my family for no specific reason and as usual it was amazing. I’ve been coming here for many years and will continue to do so. The view of the skyline of Miami is the best in town.

Parking's free if you park park yourself--I think the spaces are designated, don't remember. Valet parking is available, but it's just a few steps closer to the restaurant.

I seems to recall they have a bar area inside with a view. We chose to sit outside.

Description
You haven't seen Miami until you've seen it from The Rusty Pelican Restaurant and Special Events Center. The Rusty Pelican is the most sought after restaurant with a view in South Florida. With the sun setting on Biscayne Bay against the backdrop of the alluring Miami skyline, The Rusty Pelican is the perfect spot for a romantic interlude or that special occasion. Located in Florida on the Island of Key Biscayne and just minutes away from Interstate-95. The Rusty Pelican has a breathtaking view of the City of Miami while offering superb cuisine and service. The fresh seafood changes with the season, deliciously enhanced with island-influenced salsas and flavors.
