“Pleasant evening on the porch.”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

We recently visited the Torch Lake area and had a nice dinner on the porch of the inn. The food was very good and although we were "stuffed" we both got dessert. The service was excellant and we will definitely return on our next visit.

“As good as you get in the area!”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

The Blue Pelican Inn has provided our family and friends the best food in the area. Their offering of crab-legs and a seafood bucket, along with a variety of fish and steaks makes this THE DESTINATION for us when we want to enjoy a great meal. The restaurant is located in Central Lake (maybe 10-15 miles north of Bellaire) but well worth the drive if you a visiting Torch Lake or Shanty Creek Resorts. The pricing is NOT inexpensive but not overly priced either (I'd rate the pricing as 4 out of 5). ENJOY, you'll likely return!

“Loved eating on the covered porch”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

Food was delicious, service very professional and attentive. Good portions so that I was too full for dessert, so next night I ordered dessert first, then meal. Looking forward to eating here again.

“A place for dinner”
Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

I've had the steak and the pulled pork. They were both fantastic. The entire meal was great side dishes and salad are all good. It's nice to know i can count on this place for a great meal when I'm up north.

“Try the Side Door Saloon”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Traveled to Central Lake for a quick dinner on a weeknight. We were dismayed to learn that they were out of whitefish (had that experience at another place, too). However, we did land there on their $5 basket night. You could have a burger, puller pork or grilled chicken sandwich, plus fries for $5. How can you beat that?! The burgers were good and so was the pulled pork. The server did forget the salad ordered, but brought it later at no charge. It was also happy hour, so dinner for the 4 of us, including drinks, was under $30.
