Food is very good and the view from the restaurant, specially during sunset, is very Good! During the winter they have a nice open Fireplace which makes it even more Romantic. Great wedding location!

I can't say enough good things about our daughter's wedding at Rusty Pelican. Even though we lost our wedding coordinator ONE WEEK before the wedding, and even though it rained on the wedding day and had to be moved inside, the staff at Rusty Pelican did a GREAT job. The food was fabulous and the decorations were perfect!! They made their wedding day very special and memorable and we would highly recommend Rusty Pelican for a wedding.

What an exceptional dining experience! I highly recommend that you dine here. The food is excellent, the portions meet the value of the dish. I plan on returning in the near future.

The view was lovely, the food was good, although my club sandwich could have used some fresh bacon (the stuff in the sandwich was cold and hard) and some warm bread (that was toasted and cold). The fries were delish! The grouper sandwich was wonderful, and my toddler grandson's fruit had been cut into really small pieces - VERY MUCH appreciated! They only had one waiter for the entire place, and the poor boy was doing his best to make everybody happy. Because of that, lunch took a long time to arrive at our table, but all in all, a good experience. We'll definitely go back.
