We came here for lunch. We were pleasantly surprised. Really cute atmosphere. It has an outdoor patio where we watched the boats and birds. The prices were very reasonable. The service was excellent. I had coconut shrimp and my husband had clam chowder. He said the soup was the best he'd ever tasted. Locals seem to love this place as... More

Great seafood restaurant, fresh seafood, great prices, and nice view of the inter-coastal. The seafood nachos are an appetizer you have to try.

The staff is always friendly and very efficient. Get you taken care of in a timely manner. The Seafood Chowder is one of the best I have had. The seafood (non-fried) is always good. We have eaten there about 5 times now and brought friends and have never been disappointed. The hamburgers are huge and good if you aren't a... More

You have to keep your eyes open because the restaurant is tucked away by the bridge. On an impulse we decided to give it a try and we enjoyed everything. The shrimp scampi was to die for, great service, looking out on the water, and reasonable prices. If you don't like franchises, add Pelican Alley to your list when you're... More

Watch the drawbridge go up for large boats as you enjoy a drink and meal on the Inter Coastal across from Nokomis Beach. Indoor or patio dining. As its name implies, it truly is a Pelican alley perch!!

Whilst staying in Casey Key my husband and I visited both Pelican Alley and Pops restaurant and this one was the best by far. We liked the fact that we could book a table and not have the long wait that we had for Pops plus the service was great with chatty waiting staff and a friendly atmosphere. I had... More

A great place for a casual meal. I had the mahi mahi special with a sweet thai chili glaze and wasabi sauce. It was great. The others on the table had the seafood saute served over linguine(huge), fish and chips, the final person did an appetizer and tapas meal with an order of peel n eat shrimp, stuffed mushrooms, dinner...

Maybe our experience at Pelican Alley is a bit biased because my cousin's son works there -- but I would recommend this place even if he did not work there! The staff is top-notch, even when they are busy (as they often are). The food is reasonably priced and yummy! I recommend the fish & chips, the crab cakes &... More

We just happened to come upon this place when we didn't want to wait an hour and a hald to eat at the other nearby seafood restaurant(Pop's). We had to wait only 5-10 minutes and there was live entertainment as we waited. We had the grouper sandwich, fried shrimp and scallops and all we very good. It is fun to... More
