Great outdoor seating with the Biscayne Bay view and the downtown Miami skyline. I had the crab cake with a Caesar salad and son got Sushi both were great.

Roberto provided excellent service while we enjoyed our Saturday Brunch complete with Bloody Mary’s (w:bacon and shrimp) and bottomless mimosas. Lobster Benedicte with jalapeño cornbread base was tasty.

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.
