Great service and menus and food! The staff was the best around and made us feel very welcome. Ate there three times in three days. Both lunch and dinner are perfect.

Friday night's you'd better get here early. Lots of singing and dancing going on! Great seafood, friendly staff, and a great owner. I know now why this place has been so successful for so many years! The place is so cute!

A little off the beaten path, but worth finding this place for its rustic setting and nice seafood. Had their grilled Grouper sandwich with fries and slaw and enjoyed it very much. Would definitely return. Believe this restaurant is also accessible by boat.

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 wonderful. Pelican Alley is a... 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.
