Located minutes away from Marco Island in Isles of Capri, Pelican Bend offers guests fresh local fare in a casual and friendly environment. The restaurant has been a family-owned and operated since 1979. When you vacation in Florida, this is the kind of restaurant you’re envisioning. It’s a seaside eatery that looks like it just jumped off a postcard. It’s certainly a great seafood restaurant that you shouldn’t miss on your next visit.
Pelican Bend is open daily from 11:00 a.m to 9:00 p.m. and guests can expect to wait for a table during peak season. The restaurant is very popular with locals and tourists alike. The old Florida vibe is complemented with an invitation for guests to visit the chickees, take a walk on the dock, and take advantage of an unobstructed view of the sunset.
As expected, the
menu is full of seafood and fish options. The restaurant offers a combination plate with the choice of up to five items from shrimp, fish fingers, scallops, oysters, frog legs, and clams. Meat lovers and vegetarians won’t feel left out. A separate children’s menu includes kid-approved items like Mac & Cheese, Hot Dog, and Fried Fish Of The Day. Dessert choices include Key three daily made pies, including Key Lime, Chocolate Mousse, and Peanut Butter. A small alcohol menu offers a few beer choices and wine can be ordered by the glass or bottle.
The Sun King is a big fan of Pelican Bend. It truly is a Florida vacation must-eat. It has the feel of old Florida before everything became so commercialized. It’s very relaxed and comfortable. The food is excellent. The Sun King usually chooses a broiled or sauteed grouper. The Filet Mignon is great, too. Bon Apetit.
It’s always a dilemma when choosing between Pelican Bend Capri Fish House next door.
