We explored Isle of Capri restaurants after reading a bit of the area's history. After many vacations to Marco we really prefer the old FL feel of places like Pelican Bend & Marina. The staff is really friendly and helpful. They are known for their sautéed fish and it was indeed very good. So lightly battered and dripping in butter... More

This was our first trip to Pelican Bend. We had the sweetest waitress & everything she recommended was DELICIOUS!! We started with the wedge salads (with the BEST garlic dressing-homemade!!) & hush puppies (melt in your mouth delicious!). We each also had the fish of the day (so fresh!!) & homemade potato wedges-also unbelievably delicious!! And, we took 2 pieces... More

Good Pelican is when you are seated right away and Bad Pelican is when you decided to eat the same time as everyone else and the place was crowded. As far as a review I love a Family Restaurant that is run well, good food and friendly and this one meets the criteria. My favorite was the Chicken Finger Basket... More

The food here without a doubt is delicious; but, the wait is insanely long. Do not come here hungry expecting to get a table right away. I saw many people come/leave ticked off because of the ridiculously long, long, wait. Also, the bar is outside in a smallish enclosed area, which can get pretty hot. They added another makeshift side... More

We always enjoy out dinner here. Fun to start with wine in the chickie hut. Then move inside for dinner. Always a tasty meal. The seafood chowder is outstanding. And the lettuce wedge with the creamy house dress in NOT to be missed. The Pelican Bend is a local place. If you are in Naples or Marco, don't miss it.... More

Great little spot with a short drive from Marco Island. Chickee bar is cute with only beer and wine options. Sitting on the dock of the bay is entertaining as fishing boats arrive and clean their catch creating a feeding frenzie. Food was good. Steamed shrimp basket plentiful. Will be back again.

We wanted to enjoy our last night in Marco while dining in the water only to find out that is only available at lunch. We thought that was strange given the wonderful view and two outdoor bars. We went inside and were greeted right away so we decided to stay. It went downhill from there; slow service, limited adult drink... More

We go here at least once every visit to Marco. The "fish of the day" is always white roughy, good in either a platter or a sandwich. Great views of the waterfront in Isle of Capri. On this visit, the waiter was surly, unusual for this place.

No annual trip to Marco Island would be complete without a visit to this restaurant and ordering the Sautéed Fish......so tender and dripping in butter. It is sinful but necessary. I've been coming here for years and can never order anything else. This restaurant is a landmark and be prepared to wait for a while to get a table but... More

Nice place to grab a quick bite. Good place to sit outside. Decent service and the food was ok except that the chowder was AMAZING!
