Miami New Times's Description
Calling the Pelican a restaurant may convey the wrong impression. It's a thatched-roof, open-air, low-cost, shorts-and-sandals throwback to a different era, perched high above the sand on the Newport's fishing pier (known to old-timers as the Sunny Isles pier). The north side offers table seating. We recommend the south side. Tall cocktail tables attached to the pier railings accommodate three stools each. Grab one to catch the southeasterly summer breeze and behold the sweeping view down the coast. Turquoise water, white sand, deep blue sky, a distant cruise ship heading to sea. It's sensational at sunset. The Pelican's menu favors burgers over seafood, but if you ask for the freshest fish and have it simply prepared you can't go wrong, especially with an Italian pinot grigio or German Riesling (no bottle more than $15). They have a selection of five types daily and have just introduced a raw bar. The kitchen is open till 9:00 p.m. seven days a week. You can park at the foot of the pier but it's expensive. Better to use the public parking up the road and across the street.
Tips from foursquare

Best place for fresh seafood and beers on the water...
Soon to re-open ¤ new pier and sky-bridge too! @SoBeLive and www.facebook.com/soBeLiVeIT
Decent Food When Fresh- Super Setting on the Newport Pier at La Perla Beach.
Stale crackers w/the oysters, instant iced tea, my entree was burned, missing the shrimp & had the wrong side.
