Hard to get a table for dinner, but worth the wait. We decided to go for lunch. We especially enjoyed their oyster dish and the special Cuban panini. Large portions. Fabulous sweet potato fries!

This is the southern home for watching New England Patriot football. order up the food, the drinks and relax a bit. Everyone know's where the Pelican is and will gladly direct you to the hot spot. This is beach food at its best. Ask about their Mac n Cheese bowls... you'll be amazed. And they occasionally have a really good... More

Came here twice during my 3-day visit to Fernandina Beach. It is a rather loud restaurant (live music, sports games on the big screens, and a lively bar atmosphere) so I would keep that in mind if you are looking for a quiet, more intimate setting. During my first visit here, I ordered the fish tacos. They were marvelous! The... More

Great food, great service, friendly folks. Casual dining & seat yourself for rooftop dining. We ordered the Tuna appetizer and it was superb. Before we finished, our entree or shrimp & oysters had arrived and it was cooked to perfection. The team of servers were very friendly and efficient. Another night we had the grouper cooked in the Parmesan cheese... More
