"Everything was delicious! The garlic bread is addictive and tried the special of the night which was a wonderful Chilean Sea Bass. We sat outside to watch the sun set and every seat has a great view and you are not crowded."

"We have gone here three or four times in 2015. Each time was above average. The quality of the food is always the greatest asset. There are three places to choose from in the immediate location. Billy's, Rusty and now the "steak place next door". (No ad for them here). Billy's is a good place, but the bar scene is so loud. Then they add music and it is unbearable on the weekends. Rusty has no loudness to it. I think in 2016 they have improved. The service is even better. The fish is the mainstay. I did try the rib eye and it was good, but I would go to Morton's for steak. The Lobster salad entrée is work splitting as a starter salad. Their salmon is the best, but Mahi -Mahi is also very tasty. Ok, you garlic bread lovers should order the Rusty bread as it is special. Sunset, great food and a beautiful woman to dine with. I'm sold."

"My wife and I have been dining at the Rusty Pelican for many many years. Sometimes on a "special" date, sometimes with family for a "special event" and sometimes for business with clients or co-workers in groups of 1 to 15. It never fails to offer good food, good service, and a nice atmosphere in which to dine. Sunday brunch is especially enjoyable on a sunny day. This past weekend, although raining, was no exception. Although it's been 18-months since we were last here, we had no qualms about bringing my new boss here for dinner. And sure enough, we all thoroughly enjoyed the evening."

"This restaurant has a wheelchair ramp and it drops you off in the middle of the back dining room. You have to navigate to the front through food trays, tables and chairs and merry diners. It was a disaster for myself trying to do this with my elderly mother. You would think that in this day and age, handicapped folks could go through the FRONT door."

"Good variety of choices on the regular menu and special set menu. Very nice plating presentation. Full size servings even on the Restaurant Week set menu.
Attentive service even though it was busy with a few large groups.

"We loved the upstairs bar area. We sat at the window and watched the boats go by. Lights began to come on of the surrounding homes and buildings. Our meal was wonderful. Fish was so fresh. We did not eat anything else but I heard exclamations from neighboring tables. Will surely return."

"We love the rusty pelican but during restaurant week - very disappointed and it wasn't even that crowded.
Expensive, small portions, quality not the same. This is the time for restaurants to shine but it's been our experience the opposites happen!
