As everyone knows getting married, even if it is the second time, is very stressful, but if you choose to have your wedding at the Rusty Pelican you will feel like the princess that you should feel like and be practically stress free. The memories that are created by all of the wonderful people that are involved in the planning and implementation of your special day will be a lasting imprint in your mind. I never thought that my wedding day could go off without any problems, I always heard about how this went wrong and that went wrong from other brides but, their mistake, they did not get married at the Rusty Pelican! Our wedding was the most wonderful, beautiful, and stress free experience of my life!!!! From the time we spoke with Don, the wedding planner, to the day we became husband and wife in the beautifully decorated gazebo on the grounds at the Rusty Pelican, to the delicious sit down dinner, to the most fabulous reception, which was in the very back room that over looks the bay, to the excellent wait staff and all the vendors that the Rusty Pelican supplies for you, we were so impressed that we would advise anyone who wants to have their wedding day a day to remember for a life time to contact the Rusty Pelican and let them help you in planning the most memorial day of your life.
the remodeling they've done to the place is amazing. the outdoor patio area is comfy and relaxing with a pool/fountain in the background. I've been there a few times. My first time I had the Scottish salmon that comes with their garlicky spinach and a twice baked potato and a balsamic glaze. YUM! I recommend that to everyone! The second time our very friendly and informative server told us we had to try the grilled oysters drizzled with garlic butter and topped with melted parmesan and Romano cheese... so we did and she was right, they were amazing! For my entree this time I chose the lobster roll. You can get it hot or cold. I tried it hot and wowwww. First, of the amount of lobster you get is crazy and the herb hoaggie roll it comes on is so delicious. GO THERE!
I have entertained family and friends at Catch 23 on many an occassion and never been disaappointed. Clean and pleasant surroundings with a genuinely friendly staff. Menu offers quite a variety and food is always fresh and delicious. Best of all are their specials, including the Monday night burger and Thursday steak! Don't take my word for it, check it out and ENJOY!
Nothing better than having one of the top rated restaurants in Tampa just walking distance from your doorstep. The food is always fresh and the menu is very creative. The macadamia encrusted Sea Bass is the best. Highly recommend this place for a personal dining event or to take clients. Better still visit them on Mondays for the $3 Burger night with the family,
We went on Christmas Eve and were expecting the sunset menu, which was not available. The entrees were overpriced- vegetables for 20.00 and seafood for 29. I have been to other restaurants where if I had spent 49.00 I would have gotten an amazing meal- far more than two "OK" entrees with no sides or desserts offered. Not a great deal for the holidays.
Had a beautiful lunch there. The view is amazing, sits right on Tampa Bay. Loved their coconut shrimp and parmesan risotto. Will definitely come back. Service was excellent.
Since I live in Wyoming now, I can't get fresh seafood. So I saw the good reviews and tried it out. The crab and shrimp were very good. Also enjoyed the Cole slaw.
Amazing sea food for reasonable prices...i love this place. The device was pretty swift consider they are cooking it as its ordered
T he Crab Shack is the spot baby. I love this joint. ordered garlic crabs,garlic shrimp, and fried shrimp...... OMG!
