“Very good restaurant”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

Food, service and ambience all work together at this waterfront restaurant overlooking Tampa bay. Generous cocktails. Interesting hor'ourves. I recommend the seafood stuffed artichoke caps. Swordfish was delicious thought a bit salty. Perhaps because it was blackened. My dining companion had cioppino. Lots of seafood in a tasty sauce. We will return.

“What a Fantastic Restaurant on Tampa Bay”
Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

Their grouper dinner with green beans and carrots was unbelievably delicious!! The key lime pie is yummy , yummy. Our waitress was so friendly and efficient . This restaurant is very clean, and the view out of their windows at Tampa Bay is so relaxing and fun to see while you are eating. You definitely will love Rusty Pelican when you are in Tampa, FL !!!!

“Eat while enjoying the nice view of the bay”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

I went here for lunch and enjoy it. Food was good, server was attentive, and the view was awesome. There weren't many people at the time (maybe because it was on a weekday) which made it even better. I will suggest this place for a quick bite.

“2nd time there for a family wedding--superb!”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

Such a lovely location--day or nite views are wonderful for bar and dining customers These folks did a bang-up job on 2 weddings for my cousins (4 yrs ago and 2014). Gazebo on the water for the ceremony--and inside for the reception. Water views all around us. Bar-tender is PROFESSIONAL level and nice. Friendly service. Wedding food was excellent.
