“great meal”

The Pelican offers great pasta at a reasonable price. The service is also fantastic. Call for reservations because they sometimes fill up.

“Cultured Pelican”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

This is an great place to eat. Its nestled in the Coakley Bay Condos, about 15 minutes east of Christiansted on the north coast. We caught a Mahi earlier in the day, and the chef prepared it for our family. Excellent fish. Avoid the green salad- its expensive and not worth it. Everything else is excellent.

“Pizza is the best we ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2012

We stayed in Coakley Bay Condos for our vacation, and had one dinner and one take out pizza and salad at Cultured Pelican. the food was awesome, although somewhat pricey, but worth it. The staff was very attentive both times. The pizza, especially, was impressive, very fresh tasting , perfect crust. They are only open W-Sun for dinner during the Summer.

“The menu sounded good but the meal was flavorless.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

We went here for the first time last night. The menu sounded really good. I got a mixed green salad with an oil and vinegar based house dressing. I can't remember the last time I added salt and pepper to a salad but that was the only thing that would remotely help this one. My husband got the Shrimp Francaise. He liked it but didn't like the fact that the shrimp still had tails attached. I got the Rigatoni Neapolitan. How a dish made with fresh basil, roasted garlic and pine nuts in a chunky tomato sauce could possibly have no flavor is beyond me. But, that was the case. At least we went on a 2 for 1 night so my meal was free, which was about what it was worth. The service was adequate and our food came out in a timely manner.

“Dennis is Back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2012

Dennis is back now and the food is truly up to par again. One of our favorite Sunday morning brunch locations - and the crayons to color on the tabletops are a nice touch. Solid food, well-prepared on the East end, with a lovely view. Make a reservation for Sunday morning or weekend nights, you'll need it!
