Stopped in The Salty Pelican for one of their Homemade Bloody Mary's on their Rooftop bar overlooking the Inter-coastal. This is a must be place for a Sunset.

A good place to take the family! Food is above average overall. Wait staff not very friendly nor welcoming. Super location and setting.

Food was good...nice vibe type of place. Staff seemed a tad overwhelmed (but still very nice), but it may have been a shift change. Great place to go and grab a drink, have a casual dinner and watch the waves. Will be back.
