Food Treasure on the Waterway

Not easy to find but well worth the effort. It is tucked away by a bridge on the intracoastal waterway. Great food, staff and reasonable prices. A must visit. The food is excellent and the portions ample. I shared my snapper, catch of the day. We also had a fish combo and chowder, all were... read more

I can always count on Pelican Alley for a superb meal. A wonderful menu with many good appetizers and entrees, the biggest problem for me is deciding which to order! Right on the intracoastal waterway, the view is pretty nice, too.

We ate at this restaurant 4 years ago. It was great, we decided to find the restaurant when we returned to the area. They didn't disappoint us. It appears they have painted & cleaned things up a bit since were visited in 2010. My husband had the crab cakes. I had the grilled chicken. It was awesome. The staff was... More

This charming old time restaurant sits right on the water at the Albee Rd bridge. Loved the red beans & rice with cajun shrimp. We will go back when in the area again.

Over the past 25 years we have enjoyed coming to this restaurant, but hadn't been back since January 2014 when we found it disappointing. We thought we'd give it another try for lunch. My husband ordered a cup of their seafood chowder which he enjoyed; we then shared two appetizers: the crab meat fritters and the seafood nachos. The Fritters... More

Great food, great drinks, great people and very quaint. Small, right on the Intercoastal, and a great place to watch the sunset.
