This place always seems busy. The seafood is fresh - you can see it in the case as you enter. Ordered the scallops and thoroughly enjoyed them. They were fairly large, but only got 5 of them. Apparently the lobster roll is pretty good too...More

We like the Lucky Pelican. The food is varied and quite good. Mojito's are very good and I enjoyed my gin and tonics. Our waiter was a hoot.

It's fun to eat at the Lucky Pelican. It's just a different experience than most restaurants, for lunch or Happy Hour or dinner. For openers, there are some dishes on the menu that you won't find anywhere else. And in Sarasota, a very competitive restaurant...More

We eat here at least twice a month. I always have the seafood and have enjoyed every meal. Oysters always taste fresh and the seafood specials never disappoint. You need to be aware that is it noisy inside and there typically is a wait. The...More
