“Great Onion Rings”
Reviewed August 8, 2014 via mobile

This place has a great location and nice atmosphere. Great service too.
The onion rings are the best ever. So juicy. Oysters on half shell were good. Fried
oysters were done in cornmeal and we're too breaded. Like seafood batter better. Also no hushpuppies or cornbread.

“So much fun!!”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

While spending a few days in the St. Mary's, GA and Amelia Island, FL area we went to Fernandina Beach for an afternoon of shopping and dinner. Happened upon the Salty Pelican and what a treat. Were with our adult daughter/son-in-law and we had an absolutely wonderful meal and drinks. The wait staff was friendly and engaging, managers presented themselves to us checking on service and food and the view most wonderful from the top deck/bar area. We had such a fun time there and would recommend it to anyone looking to enjoy good food in a lovely setting with fun people taking care of you. Will definitely come back.

“Poor service”
Reviewed August 7, 2014 via mobile

Did not eat the food. Hostess would not pull tables together for a party of seven and they had the room. Instead wanted to sit us outside where they had multiple fans blowing with water mists. Not something we would like while we are eating. Maybe on the beach at a bar.

“Best peel and shrimp ever!”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

The Salty Pelican is a two story restaurant with water views from the 2nd floor-which is also much more casual than downstairs. Friendly staff who hustle to serve the needs of a busy establishment. I sat at the bar and enjoyed a cocktail and 1/2 pound of the best peel and eat shrimp I have ever eaten! Highly recommend!
