Excellent location, on the pier, surrounded by mega million dollar yachts. The food offerings are limited but what they have is great tasting. Service is fast and friendly. Visited twice and both times had no complaints.

We were there for lunch on a Friday, so we modified our service expectations in advance, although it turned out that we didn't need to. The restaurant was about half-full when we arrived at 1:00 pm, and was completely packed when we departed. Our server, Raphael, did a wonderful job even though it seemed that he was the only server.... More

Light breeze and great fish tacos. The price was moderate and clearly worth the time and money. If you have two hours you can leave the... More

Food was goos but service was very slow. Had to wait for the kids food while the rest of us got ours. It arrived when we almost finished eating. The excuse was that they had to remake the food as it had been burnt. Despite of that they insisted on 20 % tip and did not except less.

A friend recommended Pelican Landing to us. She thought we would enjoy looking at the yachts while we ate and she was right! Nice to fantasize while enjoying a lovely lunch. The waitress was also kind to order us a golf cart ride back to our car because it was raining.
