We had a fun time and good food/drinks at the Pelican Grill. The outdoor patio was nice in the afternoon (not too hot) and the menu was nice. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

Our children made this reservation for our anniversary because of the view. The food is alright, but they give a complimentary cake for the anniversary, that's nice. As for the view, it is not by the water, it was across the street of the resort.
