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.

Not sure why the restaurant is no longer listed, only the banquet office. Perhaps because of bad reviews?
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?
And your manager was not pleasant. Surely he knows your food is not up to par? But just because someone makes a complaint could mean they are correct, and not trying to pull a flim-flam. We found that to be highly unprofessional on your part.

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.
When we got to our table, right by the window, the flowers and card were neatly arranged and the waiter, Doug, soon brought our bottle of wine. The manager stopped by TWICE to check on us, and literally every person we interacted with (even the valet!) seemed to make it their personal responsibility to take care of us.
The food was good, not superb, but honestly it didn't matter because the service and ambience was so incredibly fantastic. I cannot recommend a dining experience at the Rusty Pelican highly enough.
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.

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 like lamb which I was tempted to try. We started out with a great crab cake, all meat, then had Caesar salads made from scratch table side. For dinner, I had a special with snapper that was perfectly cooked and my love had a filet with a peppercorn sauce, spicy but he loved it. Our waitress was really nice and answered any questions we had. She also helped us pick a nice pinot noir to go with dinner. At the end a surprise flaming creme brulee for us to celebrate. I can't wait to go back, and will ask for Jennifer again!

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 elegantly seated near the window and the bay view is beyond compare. This is the place where you propose and later come back to plan your reception or if you've been around awhile like us, it's a respite from everyday life. Our lunch was under fifty dollars although we didn't have a drink. Clean casual dress was acceptable. I can imagine the sunset would be spectacular for dinner and be sure to visit the bayside gazebo if possible. I can't wait to go again!

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.

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 reservation.
