Funky Pelican of Flagler Beach Review


Funky Pelican in Flagler Beach offers one of the best dining ocean views around without sacrificing on food excellency. Funky Pelican is one of our go to restaurants for a date night or a night out with our kids after a day on the beach. Located off of AIA, Funky Pelican sits directly next to the Flagler Beach pier and offers a breathtaking view of the Atlantic. 

Funky Pelican offers both an indoor and an outdoor bar. There’s plenty of seating inside with windows on the side and along the entire back of the restaurant for a great view. There’s also an extensive outdoor deck with bar seating and dining. 

  Florida Cosmo and Funky Pelican Drinks

We started our night with their Signature Funky Pelican rum beverage which has a fruity tropical taste, including banana, orange and pineapple flavors. The Florida Cosmo has the traditional taste of a Cosmo with the added flavor of Orange Liqueur. 

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

Oh.my.word, their bacon wrapped shrimp was amazing! My son, husband and I fought over the last piece. This tender shrimp was wrapped in crispy, smoked bacon and finished with a tangy barbecue sauce. My son said that’s what he plans on ordering for his main meal (so he doesn’t have to share!) the next time we visit. 

Jamaican Chicken 

I ordered the Jamaican chicken and shrimp as my entree. The shrimp and chicken had a savory marinade with a little spice that was balanced with the sweet pineapple and mango salsa topping. Served on a bed of yellow rice and beans, this meal was very filling, I even had leftovers. 

Lobster Ravioli 

Listed as a Funky Specialty on the menu, my husband ordered the Lobster Ravioli. The perfectly cooked pasta was filled with a generous amount of lobster and topped with a mouth-watering garlic, cream sauce. He scooped up every last bit of that sauce.

Not only do they have a delicious lunch and dinner menu, Funky Pelican opens up at 7am so you can enjoy the sunrise with a full breakfast menu. Between the view and appetizing foods, Funky Pelican is a must visit whether you live in the area or are in town for a visit.
