Warning: they do not like animals. Animals are not allowed in this place, even outside! We came from Europe to country, where animals are allowed everywhere .. At least we thought so..

We were seated by the window with a pleasant water view. Our server was friendly, helpful and prompt. Drinks were brought out quickly as well as our food. We decided to order and share the seafood nachos, scallops soprano, a caesar salad with grilled shrimp and a cup of chowder. Everything was hot, delicious and satisfying. Highly recommend Pelican Alley... More

The service was good and the location of the restaurant by the ICW where you can see boats go by is great. My husband ordered Ceviche which was out if this world. However, I ordered the catch of the day, which was red snapper and it was not very good. The fish wasn't firm like it should be if fresh.... More

A long-time favorite, Pelican Alley is the quintessential beach eatery. It is on the intercoastal waterway near the bridge, is is a local favorite. PA has a menu filled with tasty choices, including seafood to burgers. The bar is excellent and desserts to die for, especially the key lime pie. Go here if you're in town.

Although I've lived in the area for 25 years, I've only recently "discovered" this restaurant. Food is freshly prepared. On my last visit I had Mahi stuffed with crabmeat with shrimp risotto. Great waterfront views to watch the boats. A great bar, too. Waitstaff is very friendly. Be sure you ask about the resident ghost!

The atmosphere of the place is fantastic. Even if it is close to the water there is not much of a view during lunch because of the shades. However, the decor of the place is very special. We started with the calamari appetizer, as entree we had fish (the fish taco trio and the catch of the day) and the... More
