This is a mom and pop (literally) place with limited seating. When you visit in season be prepared for a wait unless you get there before the doors open. Deserts are homemade and each bone delicious. Large portions, homemade garlic dressing and some items for non seafood eaters. Tiki bar out back, would love to eat outside, but not an... More

Our only gripe... More

This restaurant is one known by locals. Always order their special broiled fish of the day - only available on evening menu. Fish cover the entire plate - I always have some for take home. Simple place, simple choices. Salad - great wedge of lettuce with Garlic Dressing. I have tried to find the recipe and have found others have... More

Well let me start by saying that the seafood chowder is some of the best I've ever had - it's filled with fresh fish & seafood without tasting fishy. I initially had a hard time with an entire half wedge of lettuce instead of a typical salad. Felt a bit like a goat or a bunny up until I had... More

Really. Please don't eat here. The wait time is already long enough. The sautéed fish is the best I have ever eaten, and the wedge salad with house made dressings is wonderful. The owners and staff are super friendly. The decor may not be five star, but there are hidden little items that give this out-of-the-way local restaurant an ambiance... More

Recommended by our boat captain as the best place to get fresh, local fish. Located on the Isle of Capri just before Marco Island. I went there for lunch on a week day. Small family run place with inside air conditioned or outside on the water seating. Friendly people, good service, very casual atmosphere. Waiter recommended orange roughy. I got... More

Enjoyed a drink at the bar outside whilst waiting for a table. Restaurant felt like a canteen but I expected it to be basic but not in semi darkness. Staff friendly, food average.

Not a fish Eater but their fried chicken and hush puppies are simply the best. Very casual and more popular than ever. After going there for 25 years, never disappoints

During our stay on Marco Island, we went twice. Both times were amazing. I got the sautéed red snapper and it was tied for the best fish I've ever had in my life. The fries were also amazing and the staff was friendly and quick. The food usually takes a few minutes, but the food is worth the wait. You... More

My family and I have been staying on Marco Island for a conference and found Pelican Bend after a friend recommended it. The restaurant is small and very unassuming, but the food and service are fantastic. It's always nice to find the place where locals eat and isn't flooded with tourists. All of our food we well prepared and the... More
