“Nice sweet potato fries”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

The food was great! Service nice. My concern lied in the very nice waitress carried the leftover box under her arm, not the best way. Upstairs table was in reachable for a companion with mobility issues, so we settled for a downstairs "no view" table. I liked my sweet potato fries, po-boy was tasty. The chicken salad was nice too.

“Sunsets and shrimp tacos”
Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

A great, casual bar with surprisingly good food. Go to the upper deck to watch the sunset over the river. The shrimp tacos are outstanding! Service is good too.

“best shrimp tacos”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

i have ordered shrimp tacos on several occasions, and have enjoyed them each and every time!
the shrimp are large and fresh with a delightful flavor. they are served in a flour tortilla with a cabbage topping. guacamole is served on the side. i would also recommend asking for a side order of "pelican sauce" to drizzle on the taco! good stuff!! service was quick. i would also ask for zach, one of the pelican's bartenders, to serve up a delicious rum punch! deliciousness!!

“Perfect sunset venue”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Heard live music so went to investigate. Good choice. We ate upstairs on the deck watching a fantastic sunset. I ordered the burger which was cooked to perfection and very enjoyable with a cold Yeungling. Enjoyed it so much we returned the night after and this time I had the crab cakes which were good washed down with the cool cucumber cocktail

“fun!”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Great place to have drinks or a casual dinner and watch the sunset from the upper level. Service is a little "laid back", but staff is friendly and the margaritas are great.
