Description: Once upon a time on a dock in Naples, there was a little Pelican. His name was Larry "because that's what his Mama called him". Little Larry would sit around all day waiting for the local fishermen to come in so he could eat the fish that they would bring him. As time went by Larry, would do the same routine, float around all day in the sun and wait for the boats to come in. He was very happy but he realized he was also very lonely. He wanted to share his daily fresh catch with everyone. He thought: "Why not invite some friends over to share my fish with?" So the flock gathered and they ate the catch of the day with him. As word spread around more and more people came over and before you knew it there was no more room on the dock for everyone. That's when Larry decided he needed a bigger place to meet. He found a cozy little spot on Pine Ridge Road. Things went so well there, he had ice cold beer, drinks, a kitchen to prepare the daily catch and he added a menu of appetizers sandwiches and daily creations and decided to name it after himself: Pelican Larry's. Again things went so well that Larry had to open up another restaurant on a Immokalee Road. So now all of Larry's friends are welcome to come over for daily gathering of great people great food and great times. And the rest, as they say, is history.

“Good honest Bar”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

This place is a great, lively sports bar with an outdoor bar area to enjoy the warm evenings and a real bonus for the smokers. Good service, great selection of beers and some of the best fresh oysters to be found in Naples. Location is not great but just a good honest pub. Very enjoyable.

“Fabulous raw oysters, but one waitress who let everyone know that she didn't want to wait on you”
Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

I had learned about Pelican Larry's from this site. We had read the negative reviews about the service, but were willing to overlook it, because the ratings for the oysters were so great. The one bartender, named Claudia, made it very clear from the beginning she did not want to wait on you. Any time you asked for anything she rolled her eyes. . She did not want to talk to or be bothered by you. A gentleman came in and sat next to us. He ordered a Manhattan. She made the drink, pretty much slammed it down on the bar, and told him there was no vermouth. She obviously should have come back to him before making the drink and asked him if he wanted something else since there was no vermouth. But, she just made the drink without the vermouth and walked away. This same gentleman ordered one dozen of the raw oysters. He enjoyed them so much, he ordered a second order. Because Claudia had to take the time to freshly shuck these oysters for this man, she made it very clear to all of us sitting there that this was the last thing she wanted to do. She looked angry and so put off. The only time we saw her smile all evening was when her boyfriend came in. She spent her time huddling around him, batting her eyes at him, and lastly kissed him on the lips. I'm glad she at least possessed the possibility to smile and be pleasant to someone at that bar. Still in yet, the oysters we ate were some of the best fresh shucked oysters we ever tasted. Beware, go for the oysters not for the atmosphere of certain bartenders. I would like to mention we did also have a bartender from Rhode Island that night. His name escapes me right now but he was pleasant and Made effort to have conversation. We appreciated that in light of Claudia's inability to be pleasant. It is because of this bartender from Rhode Island's pleasantness that I gave the service a 3. If it was based only on Claudia it would've been a -10

“A fun place with great food and drink”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

This is a bar/restaurant that will make you feel at home. The staff is very friendly and the food is great. It is somewhat easy to miss so set your GPS to 1046 Pine Ridge Road, Naples, FL and it will take you right to it.

“Great sports bat”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

This is a sports bar- good happy hour- tvs at every table- good raw seafood great drink prices, Buy it is a bar, and can draw a younger crowd. Could be a hard crowd. The bartenders do all of the food and drinks- there is no wait service at the tables- it is what it is but it is good at what it does. Been ther emany rimes over the last 5 years and will go back again
