Drinks were fantastic. The Mac n Cheese Egg Rolls were awesome. Shrimp was amazing! So fresh and delicious. Would go back just to get more shrimp! Our server was polite, but we felt rushed to get off his table. Impressed with the system hostesses use to text/see next available table in dining room.

We arrived on Amelia Island on a Thursday, and when we learned that Salty Pelican had a special on prime rib on Thursdays, decided to check it out. The place is large with a beachy sports bar theme, with a nice selection of microbrews on tap, and although it was loud with the house band we really enjoyed our dinner... More

Salty Pelican is a weekly event for us. Upstairs on the deck on Sunday evenings features great live music and pretty sunsets. The food is just consistently great. Best items on the menu includes the fish of the day (grilled), the tuna steak, oysters and the shrimp wrap. Wait and bar staff are friendly and prompt. They also have a... More

Recommended by a local mail carrier, Salty Pelican has shrimp to DIE for! I had the fried and my friend had peel-and-eat. Both were generous with large shrimp. The sweet potato fries were crisp and NOT overcooked, other sides were tasty. Topped it off with a shared piece of key lime pie, plenty cause it was rich and flavorful. Server... More

Went here by the suggestion of someone we had met. The food was terrible, the service was mediocre and the prices were ridiculous for what you got. If the prices had been maybe 1/3 less expensive, I could give it a decent grade, but, I'll have to give it a D- due to poor food quality and service nothing to... More

The food was all good, but the crab cakes were just exceptional. It was festive at first, but a bit too noisy by the time we left.

The ambiance was great, the food was greater and our servers (Mallory and Kay) were outstanding. We gave this place 10 thumbs up. The restaurant is very conveniently located Fernandina Beach. We were able to enjoy a great... More
