Description: You haven't seen Miami until you've seen it from The Rusty Pelican Restaurant and Special Events Center. The Rusty Pelican is the most sought after restaurant with a view in South Florida. With the sun setting on Biscayne Bay against the backdrop of the alluring Miami skyline, The Rusty Pelican is the perfect spot for a romantic interlude or that special occasion. Located in Florida on the Island of Key Biscayne and just minutes away from Interstate-95. The Rusty Pelican has a breathtaking view of the City of Miami while offering superb cuisine and service. The fresh seafood changes with the season, deliciously enhanced with island-influenced salsas and flavors.

Asked hostess how to get a quick bite as a family of 5. She suggested the bar/lounge. WOW! What a view! Kept the kids busy and our waitress was amazing! She brought coloring books, pirates ships and all the goods as needed. Food was great! Would visit again

Ceviche Appetizer was big and very delicious, enough to share.

Tatar was just okay. Prefer it french style (with a little shot calvados or cognac, etc) and toasted Toast and butter.

Filet Mignon was good, a lot of mashed on the side. very good green asperagus. sauce was okay.

Toothfish dish was very good but also lots of mashed. Better; less mashed more fish.

service was very good. nothing to complain. I recommend to clean up the windows. when sun comes in the windows have lots of fingerprints and dirt.

prices between average ( my big ceviche to share was only 12 USD) and almost high.

Thank Melanie R

No Rust here! The Rusty Pelican's food is incredible! The toothfish is one of the best items I have ever had! Loving the strawberry mule very refreshing with our hot weather down here in Miami. Service was great, received a birthday card from the hostess for my birthday and i thought that was a nice touch. All in all they do it right at The Rusty Pelican and can't wait to come back and try some more stuff!

We were fortunate for an opportunity to sample some desserts we chose for a scheduled event and decided to stay for lunch and order the filet mignon, as that was one of our choices on our menu. The filet mignon was of excellent quality, accompanied by bernaise sauce which is as good as we have tasted in France. It was served with french fries, which was also equal to French standards and grilled vegetables which were cooked perfectly..Then we tasted some desserts we chose which was the key lime pie and chocolate mousse. Both excellent accompanied with a tangy key lime sauce and rasberry sauce. Catering Mgr,, Ana Maria,and Chef Natalia were on hand for any questions, and aimed to please in every way.. We can't wait to wow our family and friends are our scheduled rehearsal dinner coming up..
