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.

Went to the Rusty Pelican for the first time during last March with my cuban family while I was visiting Miami. Our early dinner was spectacular!!!!!! The service was amazing from start to finish. Excellent staff, great service and food Delicious!!! For appetizers we ordered Ceviche and it was so good. For dinner I ate the salmon with mashed potatoes and asparagus and for Dessert OMG the Best key Lime Pie I ever ate. Not only the service and the food was 5 Starts , the view is Stunning. You can admire the ocean ,the marina the boats from every side of the restaurant. I will go back on my next visit to Miami. Excellent Dinner!!!!!

It has the best view I've been exposed to anywhere in Miami. You can look down from the high risers but here you'll be at sea level with an unobstructed view of Key Biscayne all the way to the downtown skyline. Parking is a challenge so go off hours. Best bet to go late afternoon and stay until after sunset. The bar area is wonderful and the service was great. Then an outside table for dinner while watching boats coming and going and even an airplane takeoff.
Food was mediocre and priced for the great view, outside service was busy but managed nicely - no complaints.

Hostess/Manager Wanda and waiter Christopher both charming and accommodating. We had awesome view and good appetizer followed by pancakes (would have preferred buttermilk but still good) and French Toast (we are very fussy and love it crispy on the outside and creamy like custard inside) and ours was not. However, delightful Sunday brunch with awesome view and friendly helpful staff. We will revisit and try other dishes .
