There are some interesting mixed reviews of this place, but we were very happy with our choice to eat at The Salty Pelican. First time to Fernandina, we planned to eat somewhere else based on higher TA ratings, but a local recommended the Pelican and we value local opinions. We were not disappointed! The upstairs open area was busy but we were lucky to get a table closest to the water and the breeze /view was terrific. We ordered and shared Calamari with Banana Peppers (with Sweet n Spicy Chili Sauce), Seared Tuna Nachos (Seared Tuna, Seaweed Salad, Goat Cheese, Wasabi Sesame Seeds), Bacon Mac N Cheese with Shrimp (Bacon, Jalapenos, Smoked Cheddar Cheese) and Fried Buffalo Shrimp Salad (Field Greens, Tomato, Cucumber, Bleu Cheese Crumbles, Onion, Avocado). We appreciated that the Pelican serves LOCAL caught Fernandina shrimp, since Fernandina was once the shrimp capital of the world. We would definitely eat here again!
