Hello,\r
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

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

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!

Pros: service, atmosphere, VIEW!!!

Cons: a little difficult to locate

I visited this restaurant as a guest of a friend who really wanted to try the place. The atmosphere was a bit stuffy and the restaurant was kind of empty. Our server was only serving our table, so when we did not need him he would stand and stare at the table. Kind of weird. The food was okay, but nothing to brag about and it was twice as expensive as other nearby seafood restaurants. I would try someplace else before going back.

This restaurant is amazing. My brother had his rehearsal dinner here last year and everyone loved it! Not only is the view of the ocean right at your finger tips, the food is delicious and the service is phenomenal. They were very friendly and willing to accommodate small children as well. If you want good food, be willing to pay for it...but i hardly consider this a drawback! Awesome!

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!

Pros: Romantic all the way!

Cons: None we could find

this is the best place to eat or share a moment with someone along the beach so if your not rich or do not want to pay at least 30 or more dollars for a meal you should make other plans but if you do want to tthen the meals are worth your time and money.

I went to this PERFECT 5 star restuarant with my family for an special occasion. This place is great in so many aspects. They have beachfront views, and a live jazz band playing. You get to choose your own waiter.

Your stay at the rusty pelican starts with a glass of wine, and some warm bread. After that your chosen waiter comes with the menus. I must warn you this restaurant is very pricey. We dined at a beach front table, and loved it.

Speaking for prices the cheapest thing on the menu as I recall was a small piece of steak for $33.89 with no sides or anything.

Overall, great place to dine but only for special ocassions. Our special dinning expirience costed us ~$230

PROS:
CONS: Pricey

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.

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.
