The restaurant is HORRIBLE

Not sure why the restaurant is no longer listed, only the banquet office. Perhaps because of bad reviews?\r
But in any event, your steaks are just the caliber they should be. And to over pepper them does not hide the quality of the meat. You use to have just good food. I don't know what happened, do you?\r
And your manager was not pleasant. Surely he knows your food is not up to par? But just bec

Outstanding Service

My wife and I chose to celebrate Valentine's Day tonight by having dinner at the Rusty Pelican. I took flowers, a bottle of wine, and a card, to the restaurant earlier in the day. Jessica at the hostess desk was super friendly and told me she would have everything waiting for us when we arrived. \r
When we got to our table, right by the window, the flowers and card were neatly arranged and the waiter, Doug, soon

Beautiful view, perfect seafood and service

What a great night!!! You know those nights, the ones where all the food is perfect, the atmosphere inviting, the service is actually more that pleasant?? We came here for an anniversary celebration. We had a great table next to the window (the restaurant actually hangs out over the water), and there are a few glowing fireplaces around. There is a nice selection of seafood and steaks, along with some other items ... view more

My husband and I reside in the n.w. Tampa area and recently had the pleasure of lunching at the Rusty Pelican. We were very pleased. Our lunch was quite excellent with portion size large enough to take some home for tomorrow! Parking was no problem, the lovely tropical walkway and deck steps lead to a lovely area complete with fireplace. Next was the bar area and wine display with a piano at the ready. We were very e... view more

Our evening was awesome from the service to the valet parking. The food was outstanding from the stuffed mushrooms to the dessert tray. We enjoyed filets and lobster tails that were cooked to perfection. Would highly recommend the Pelican - a true dining experience.

A True Gem

On a recent visit to the Tampa Bay area my wife and I stumbled upon this jewel hidden in unlikely surroundings. The view and service were exceptional. I had scallops for an appetizer and we both had sauteed grouper--excellent. The wine list was inconsistent:a few overpriced but some bargains mixed in there, too.Overall a most pleasant experience-a little pricey, but worth every dime.Would certainly recommend without ... view more

much different

I was suprised to see how much nicer the Rusty Pelican is. The Dining Room is completely different.
New wine list with some great bargains. We went there because they had just won the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. Great time, food, wine and view.

The Begger's Salmon is one of the most creative and delicious seafood dishes I have had in some time. In addition, the house steak I ordered on another occasion was excellent, topped with gorgonzola cheese and cooked to perfection. For starters, try the crab stuffed mushrooms. It's a little more expensive than other restaurants, but good restaurants often are.
