Lucky Pelican Bistro – Lakewood Ranch, FL

We’ve been having lunch at the Lucky Pelican Bistro on a fairly regular basis and I was surprised to see that I hadn’t written anything up about it — serious oversight on my part! We’ve only been for lunch, but they also serve dinner as well as offer a fresh seafood market.

We’ve had both the calamari and the bacon wrapped scallop poppers as appetizers, and they are both very good.
Allison has pretty much settled on the fish tacos for her entree — with grilled fish rather than fried. There are two pretty substantial tacos accompanied by a vinegar based coleslaw.
I’ve had a couple of different dishes: the fish and chips, oyster po boy and the daily lunch grill (I had salmon). All have been very good, but I haven’t settled on a favorite yet.
Since we’ve only had lunch, we haven’t partaken of the wine list yet but it appears to be pretty solid — we noticed one couple with a bottle of Sonoma Cutrer Chardonnay!
The prices are pretty reasonable, and the service is good although at times a little slow since there are generally only 2 people for several tables.

    Wow, sorry to hear you had such a negative experience with them. We have always found them to be very pleasant, though sometimes a bit understaffed for the volume. I just the other day picked up some to-go from them and was once again very pleased with the food and service.

    I called to get directions to the Lucky Pelican Bistro. The girl who answered the phone was rude and hung up on us before giving us proper directions. I would not recommend this restaurant!!!
