I returned to this place because I dined there for Super Bowl 44 in 2010. The food was very good and drinks were great. The 32 oz. drinks at this restaurant is less than the others. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Its a good place. There were many Spring Breakers durin my visit on 3/10/2017.

We sat there for 2 hours and our waitress only came by our table only 3 times. I even made direct eye contact with her and waved her down to get our check and she pretended that she didn't see me. Average food prices for Ocean Ave. We got the Cuban sandwhiches, which were decent. The drinks were tasty and... More

Lovely choice of American and Italian food, nice service, and interesting cocktails. Take a pavement seat in the shade and watch the people go by.

Nearing the end of my Miami Trip, I decided to just stroll down Ocean Drive for the 10th time (exaggeration) & actually listen to the Hostess' who tries to convince you to ear lunch at their places. My Wife & I were just looking for something small to eat a little lunch. Pelican's Hostess said that everything on their menu... More

The food was great. The waiter and hostess went out of their way to make us comfortable. We had our mother in a wheelchair. We sat for a long time watching the amazing people having a fabulous day on the ocean. Very accommodating.
