Good food, great service at a reasonable price. We have been many times and never disappointed. The grouper is the best along with the oysters and chowder. The booths by the windows are fun to watch the boats and birds on the water.

This restaurant had good food and good customer service. It does close earlier than what we are used to, so keep that in mind.

The "REAL" Groper sandwich on a toasted bun with onions and cheese is the best! After many years of patronage from the time it was called Admerials ward room until today.We still love to sit by the window and watch the boats go by on the inlandcoastal waterway. . Do yourself a flavor treat and try a Florida favorite. Try Pelecan Alley Just a little south of Sarasota. YUM YUM!

Just at the drawbridge going over to Casey Key, Pelican Alley sits on the Intercoastal waterway. A great local bar and grill, it speicializes in Florida cuisine, along with Mediterannean. Daily specials are available, but the burger and fried seafood are my choices. A full bar and lively patrons make it a fun place - daylight or dark.

We have been seeing the sign for Pelican Alley on our way to the beach or to Pop's, but last night was the first time we stopped in. As a previous poster noted the place certainly needs a facelift. It being a Friday night, there was music in the courtyard, quite pleasant and competent, but very loud. The deck is right next to the bridge to Casey Key, so that is not pleasant with the road noise and also with the setting sun it was like an oven. So we sat inside in a booth with seats that were probably salvaged from the Spanish Inquisition. I faced a painting of a mermaid showing off a generous pair of buttocks.

The service was cheerful, efficient and friendly, so no complaints there. I had blackened grouper, which was excellent, and my lady was happy as a clam with what she had -- steamed clams of course. Sorry about that!

In the end, the evening turned out to be quite expensive, but that was probably due to the fact that we had a bit more than usual to drink, possibly in an attempt to ease the discomfort of the seating arrangements.

Pelican Alley has a dock, so you can arrive and depart by boat, which some people did. That is kind of cool.
