About Salty Pelican

Partners Al Waldis and T.J. Pelletier started The Salty Pelican Bar & Grill in 2012. Both have spent several years in the Food and Beverage / Hospitality Industry working for such companies as The Ritz Carlton LLC, Amelia Island Plantation, and Orient Express Hotels, and have decided to bring that experience together and create the The Salty Pelican Bar & Grill.

The idea of the Salty Pelican Bar & Grill started over some cold ones during Happy Hour one summer afternoon. Owners Al Waldis and T.J. Pelletier set out on a mission to create an experience that encompasses an exciting location, great food, and a fun atmosphere. After searching all over we chose the exact location where we are now, and the rest is history.

Our mission is to deliver high quality, consistent food and beverage through friendly, genuine service in the perfect location.
