What a wonderful historic home and what a delicious healthy lunch. If your going to Antique Archeology store in LeClaire, IA, this is a must stop. Not busy, a little hard to find, but great service and wonderful food. Not expensive(:

Very good menu and staff, the place is so quaint being that it is in an old Victorian house on a hill above the river. I eat a vegetarian diet, and the chef was more than happy to accommodate me.

Crane and Pelican is located in a great old historic house. The food is fresh and the menu is awesome. C&P uses local fare in their menu. A great selection of cocktails pairs well with the food!

Just when we were thinking we couldn't find any good food in Le Claire, we stumbled upon the Crane & Pelican. Our meals were delicious, fresh, and served in a beautiful vintage atmosphere. The service was wonderful too. We would definitely go back for more.

Birthday dinner with wife and Father. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was wonderful and the experience was relaxing. I especially loved the cream of portobello soup. My Dad had the filet, medium rare and said it was the best he had ever had.
