Hadn't been there in awhile was pleasantly surprised to see how well the restaurant looks after being renovated. The food was great and the Friday night entertainment in the courtyard- Take 2 was great. The new thing is different themes for each Friday. The staff are all friendly and make you want to come back every week!!!

I love the band on Friday, BUT the place is dirty, desperately needs a good scrubbing, some renovation, Never use the bathroom or eat there. They could have a gold mine if they cleaned and hired nicer staff. Bartenders have serious attitude and like to round off the tab and not give change. Too bad.

Always a good meal, great service, and view of the ICW and bridge. The onion rings are outstanding, the seafood fresh and well prepared.

The food is fabulous. Friendly service and great atmosphere! Window seats offer a view of boats passing through the intra-coastal waterway.

Having eaten here numerous times over the past few years, I was disappointed with the swordfish special. It was served with a great grapefruit sauce, but the fish itself was dry and tasteless. I returned it to the kitchen and asked for shrimp scampi, which is always excellent with really fresh shrimp and perfect blend of garlic and herbs. We... More

We walked to Pelican Alley from Island House on Casey Key. I had a grilled grouper sandwich and it was quite nice. We sat on the deck and had pelican visitors immediately, which was fun. The one complaint I have (which isn't necessarily in the control of the restaurant) is that the deck is almost under the bridge and people... More

Pelican Alley is just across the draw bridge from Casey Key, if you are staying in Casey Key near the draw bridge, it's an easy walk. The atmosphere is pretty basic, but the food is good.

Love sitting here under the bridge watching the pelicans and the boats go by. Had burger which was very good - also enjoyed crispy fish and chips. Service is good and price is reasonable but the best part is the location - beautiful.

Very relaxing atmosphere on the water and very good food. I ordered the crab fritters along with a Caesar salad/grilled chicken. Both were very good but the fritters were out of this world. I was expecting to see Bob the ghost but guess he had expired for the evening. Highly recommend.
