Reasonably comfortable with quite a large menu and a sheet of specials. The menu abounds with many kinds of fish encrusted in nuts, seeds, herbs, etc. Encrusted seems to be in these days. I personally think encrusted fish is for people who don’t like fish...More

After another week of trying out Sarasota restaurants we once again conclude that the lucky pelican stands above walts, owens, barnacle bills and all the others, hands down. Dunganess crab is off the charts, give a good 1/2 hour to get through it. Great place.

Stopped in one evening while house hunting. Place was very busy and obviously frequented by locals both young and old. Food was great, service quick. A great experience .

I like good food but also like value. If I spend a lot of money, I expect an exceptional experience. We wanted to eat a light supper and went here. There was a decent selection but the prices exceeded the value.

All 4 of us had different dishes. Sake sea bass, roasted salmon, pablano grouper, and swordfish. Every dish was perfectly prepared. The sea bass had a slightly charred edge that was perfect. They’re one of the few restaurants that serves a peartini—one of my favorite...More

You're supposed to be dining while they dash from your table to other tables and back to your table. Most people can't eat as fast as they throw the food at you. This used to be one of our favourite places but the last two...More
