I came with my family, unless you are used to a New York attitude , go elsewhere. Not a food destination at all, or family oriented. Run away

Hi Todd. This is Dennis who served you on Tues evening. I'm a bit confused because you came in by yourself and sat at the bar. There was nobody else with you. You ordered a beer and a shot which I provided you with. You then ordered an appetizer Calamari. As soon as your appetizer came you looked at your... More

Half of our group ordered the special of the day from the chalk board. One board had the price listed as $26, the other had no price listed at all. When the check came, the meal was actually $34. All the manager could say was "Oops. Sorry"

There are no excuses for the difficulties we experienced last night!!! Bring cash on Thursday- 2 for 1 entree (only). No credit cards for that👎 I am a local & was so very disappointed. I have never written a bad review-ever-this is a first for me. If it weren't for good friends-the evening would have been a disaster.

I'm sorry your experience was not perfect on Thurs eve. I'm trying to keep the Thur special going so I do have to impose some restrictions. No credit cards is one of them. Most people are looking for a bargain in our depressed economy and appreciate most discounts that are offered. I would suggest not going to any restaurant on... More

First off the views are spectacular. Open aire restaurant featuring some fantastic Italian dishes. I had the eggplant rollatini app and tried the calamari, spinach soup and brie and toast points and all were amazing! For the main course I had the Mahi Mahi special with risotto and it was fantastic. I tried the lasagna and again it was a... More

I am sorry to hear that your experience at the Cultured Pelican was less than favorable. On Thurs evenings we have a two for one entrée special. At times it is very hectic because of the give away entrée. It's a great deal and attracts more than usual crowds. I would suggest you experience the Cultured Pelican on a regular... More

My wife and I literally just finished a pitiful attempt at a night out for dinner... The food was terribly bland and took forever to get served. The restaurant is located in a condominium complex which made for a strange venue. I wouldn't recommend this place for a night out!!!!!!!

First I'd like to thank you for coming into the Cultured Pelican on our opening night. That being said, the staff in both front of the house as well as back of the house are all new. They all need a little time to get up to speed. I promise you if you return to the Cultured Pelican this week... More

The menu is so diverse there's no way you can't be satisfied. The wine selection is just as diverse and you can pair it with any dish that is just tantalizing to the palate

My wife and I ate here recently, near the end of a 2-week trip to St. Croix, and wished we'd tried it sooner (so we could go back several times during our stay)! The restaurant was celebrating their 25th anniversary, and as such, had a special (3 course I believe it was) menu you could opt to choose from, which... More

We ate dinner here one of our 10 nights on the island. The food was very good but the service was a bit lacking. There seemed to only be 2 wait staff for the entire place so service was a bit slow, but overall our experience at this restaurant was very good and we would return on our next trip... More

Pasta is always great. It rained during our visit under the open air top. The staff quickly moved everyone to the drier areas and we all had a great time.
