Pelican Alley was devastated by Hurricane Irma. It was my understanding that construction delays were the result of permits. The good news is that construction has restarted and it is moving right along. Looking forward to the reopening soon. We missed it very much.

For anyone curious about the status of Pelican Alley, you should checkout their Facebook page. A lot has been rebuilt but it has not reopened yet. We are hoping they reopen soon!

Visited here twice during our time in Venice, FL. The entertainment is fantastic, warm welcoming environment and great Shrimp! It's a relaxed informal atmosphere that rocks on a Friday night. Eat early to enjoy the fun later.
