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.

While it’s cool and wet outside, it’s warm and dry inside so come on in and enjoy some hot food, cold drinks, and sweet desserts.For starters we are offering up our fan favorite Philly Cheesesteak Spring Rolls. That’s right, shaved prime rib, bell peppers, onions, cream and jack cheddar cheeses rolled up and fried to golden perfection. It doesn’t get better than that!But a close second is our Blackened Shrimp and Chorizo Tacos served with pico de gallo, spring mix, and a roasted garlic-cilantro aioli! Both the spring rolls and tacos are available all day, or I should say, while they last!Salty Pelican is here to provide you with delicious food, great drinks, and outstanding service all in a relaxed environment. ...
