The waiter told us that 20% will be given on the total bill. Then we ordered the jumbo drink and another waiter told us get 2 cause it's 1 for 1, so we did. When the bill came, there were no 20% so we asked and they said it was either a 1 for 1 drink or a 20%. We... More

Too bad we read other reviews after the fact. It is their regular practice to make "mistake" of almost $100 on the bill. Food and service are average. When we asked for a check it took longer than normal. When we asked our waitress she said that her manager is preparing our bill. This sounded weird because we were just... More

We were walking down ocean drive and as usual all the staff are out taunting to get you in to their establishment. We usually keep walking, though the manager told us all pasta was hand made each day, and we would get some free prosecco. So we thought why not, not holding out much hope, to our surprise the food... More

Like most of the restaurants on South Beach, the Pelican serves the same basic menu as the rest. The service was friendly, but the food was just average. I had a salad that was nothing more than I could've made at home and the guacamole just didn't do it. If you are looking for something right on South Beach this... More
