Description: You haven't seen Miami until you've seen it from The Rusty Pelican Restaurant and Special Events Center. The Rusty Pelican is the most sought after restaurant with a view in South Florida. With the sun setting on Biscayne Bay against the backdrop of the alluring Miami skyline, The Rusty Pelican is the perfect spot for a romantic interlude or that special occasion. Located in Florida on the Island of Key Biscayne and just minutes away from Interstate-95. The Rusty Pelican has a breathtaking view of the City of Miami while offering superb cuisine and service. The fresh seafood changes with the season, deliciously enhanced with island-influenced salsas and flavors.

“Divine Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

When we walked in the door to the moment we left I felt taken care of and special. The food was delicious and our server made us feel like our "vacation" was an important occasion to celebrate. The views were beautiful and the food came out piping hot and beautifully arranged. I really enjoyed their ambiance and their attention to detail they wouldn't even let us refill our on champagne. Expensive but if you're looking for a fine dining experience this is the place to go.

“A beautiful view with a very good menu.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

I visited here with a business group of about 60 people. We had a cocktail hour on the terrace with beautiful views of the Miami skyline at dusk. The dinner in the upstairs dining room provided a choice of steak or salmon. I had the steak, which was outstanding, flavorful and perfectly cooked. The combination chocolate desert was equally outstanding. Friends have told me that the restaurant is just as good, and that they yet to have a bad meal here.

Highly recommended!

“Great Ambiance!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

The food is good but not the best I've ever had. However the Ambiance is fantastic, the restaurant is Romantic and if you are a toursit in Miami it's worth going on a beautiful Miami Evening. You can sit outside by the water or inside with a view of the Miami skyline. Great place for a romantic dinner while in Miami
