Believe it or not you need a reservation on Friday and Saturday night. Best ceviche I have had. My boyfriend loved the seafood nachos with lobster sauce. The server was so accommodating. You must try this place and a sunset at Nokomis beach.

My husband and I decided to go out for dinner, I looked at the website and thought we would give it a try. We sat in side because of rain, the booth was uncomfortable, get a table. I enjoyed my dinner of crab cakes, the soup was. Excellent, too bad my husband made the wrong decision for his dinner, just... More

Chowder and onion loops were phenomenal! Sat on the porch, had a great view of the sunset. It's right by a bridge, so it's a poplar place for fishing boats. Watched some guys catch an enormous fish as my dinner was being served. Enjoyable experience!

This is our 4th season in Nokomis and this restaurant is one of our "go to" spots. The seafood nachos are one of my favorites for lunch as well as the seafood chowder. For dinner I can recommend the seafood pasta dish......it was a quite generous serving and very flavorful. The staff is very efficient and accommodating.

What a great dinner. Everything about Pelican Alley is 'Old Florida'. It's location ,right on the water, is a great setting for this rustic restaurant . The menu offers a variety of seafood specials as well as a Tapas menu and the standard fried fish offerings . Prices are very reasonable for both food and drink. My friend and I... More

This shabby looking little place sits right on the intercoastal waterway and next to the drawbridge to Casey Key. The outdoor atmosphere does the most for the place. We were there in the evening, sat outside. We both had appetizers, I loved the seafood nachos. Different approach to a menu standard. They have under the dock "fish lights" so one... More

Easy walk across drawbridge from Casey Key Beach. The scallops on a half shell are excellent and unique, as are the rum drinks and margaritas. Neat setting along ICW. A perfect break while spending a day at the beach. Nice dock for boaters wanting to stop for a drink or lunch. We don't go to Casey Key without stopping here.

Our food was bland. Seafood nachos were salty tasting and the crab meat, shrimp and scallops on them were of poor quality. Fish patty melt was soggy and flavorless. Beer was almost room temp. View is great of bridge with Pelicans and boats. Place was clean but could use some updating.

Not the best of food and not the best of prices. Sevice is good though. Nice friendly people but they charge too high a price for small portions and not too quality of food. Nice atmosphere though. Worth going for an appertizer and a drink. Walking distance good too.
