Had their stuffed chicken and it was disappointing. Very little flavour and visually unappealing. Service was very good so the cooks get the blame.

Whenever in Red Deer I eat at the Rusty Pelican for the variety and quality of their food and the good service. However, this time I was disappointed. I ordered the lunchtime $10 Fajita. It was mostly mushrooms with a few very thin slice pepper...More

Amazing food, staff and menu! This is a Red Deer gem. If you are visiting, this is a must visit. Home cooked, at an amazing price with a local feel. This restaurant is anything but Rusty. You won't be disappointed.

Over priced wine and seafood platter. Over cooked scallops, tiny lobster tail, bottle of wine $52 ($13 at Superstore). Small meal for $45. We used to enjoy this restaurant but will never return again. Felt very ripped off.

We were pleasantly surprised by our recent visit; ambience, excellent service, yummy dinner. Reasonably priced and generous portions! The stuffed chicken is delish. I want to return for the 10 items for $10 lunch menu! Bravo.

It's been going down hill for some time now but this last visit will be our last visit! Cold food, no flavour like whoever is cooking does not want to be there. At one time it was great! But not now, don't waste your money,...More

This is a quiet restaurant that is tastefully decorated. The service was average. The cajun snapper was very spicy. The presentation of the ravioli was pleasant.

Not sure. They typically don't have Christmas decorations up in the restaurant so maybe it's not a viewed stat holiday for them and staff. Call and ask they are very friendly!!! Always great food !
