Went for brunch, no espresso coffee, ordered hungry fisherman, waffles are like a glazed donuts, just a bunch of sugar syrup to hide the bad flavor, bacon was ok but nobody can screw bacon!

Eggs were flavorless, very cheap ham and sausage.
Horrible service.

I returned the dish and the owner came out angry like a crazy man and told me to never return, as if I planned to after tasting this. Very rude and disrespectful. All this in front of my family and friends.

Also he had a very unpleasant appearance a long beard which I don't want on someone cooking for me, all that hair can fall in the food. Also very loud.

Also after all the drama he made my wife pay for the dish.

What a nightmare!

You're better off going to a McDonalds.

I was waiting for your review and very happy to see you took your time to write it. Let’s start things right. Your family arrived with two or three kids which were completely misbehaving, running around, sitting on top of the table, playing with the menu almost ripping it apart and being extremely loud. We had to rearrange tables for your family two times which we happily did. Your family was quickly taken care of and ate all the food, including waffles which the kids loved. It’s not their first visit either. You joined the rest of your party way later after all of them had eaten. On this review you tried to pick apart every little thing you could think of to harm our image. Starting with the “espresso”. We proudly serve Puertorrican coffee which we brew here. Cheap products? Nope. More than happy to show anyone our quality products and fresh baked bread, waffles, French toasts etc. Horrible service? False. Our waitresses were extremely accommodating and attentive. After you played with your food and messed up the plate, you told the waitress that the waffles had sugar (do you even know what you were ordering?) and that none of the food was good. You got upset because waffles had a bit of our homemade glaze and said to the waitress that you didn’t want it and to let the chef know that everything was bad. By the way, your family doesn’t agree with you because they ate the exact same things and loved it. You want to talk about disrespect? How about the fact that you were extremely rude to our waitress and made sure to raise your voice at her and me to make sure you got everyone’s attention. I went up to your table and you raised your voice and said everything sucked. Even your family knows that’s a lie! How dare you? Maybe you had a bad day and decided to take it out on all of us. Low blow talking about appearance. How come you didn’t mention I had a beard net covering my entire beard and mouth area which complies with regulations established by the health department. You were shown the same respect you showed us. After all the drama you created, of course we charged every single item. If you would’ve been polite this would’ve been a different story. Your wife and friends were clearly embarrassed due to your behavior and they even tipped the waitresses. Also, extremely rude to talk down at other establishments such as McDonald’s which I’m sure has a lot of great people working there. You are the nightmare. You think you can come into my restaurant and do as you please and disrespect my family, my staff, restaurant and myself? No way! You’re not welcome here. We all know this is an excellent restaurant, you just want to cause harm and honestly we don’t have time for people as negative and angry as yourself. Good luck, buddy!

Visited for dining after seeing the menu I chose a New York steak. It took over 45 minutes to have the food delivered. The steak was extremely over cooked, I ordered medium and they brought it extra well done. The companion was also terrible.

Since I want to eat I order a burger I was thinking that it was going to be faster I have to wait 36 minutes for it and the burger was very regular

Instead of eating at Pelikan chose another option in the area

Cuando usted llegó a Pelican’s el lugar estaba súper lleno se le notificó que se iba a tardar y usted accedió a esperar, en cuanto al steak sino salió a su gusto eso lo puedo entender y no debió pasar. Aún así su comida salió en 45 minutos según usted mismo declara. Se le ofrecieron opciones y usted ordenó un burger el cual se lo comió todo. Es una pena que yo personalmente no lo hubiese atendido porque le aseguro que se hubiese aclarado, obviamente usted aprovecha la más mínima oportunidad para criticar buscando hacer daño. Le invito a que pase por el restaurante y procure por mi, el dueño, aunque se que no tiene el valor que tuvo para escribir lo que aquí escribió y hablarlo personalmente conmigo. Los reviews ayudan, son más los buenos que los malos, el problema es que personas como usted ya tienen una agenda mal intencionada y a esas personas son las que me place atender personalmente, así que lo espero.

We were a group of 17. The service was excellent. Food on the table quickly.
The taste of my food was OK. Mofongo was dry. It had no taste. Shrimp in Creole sauce, it had no sauce. Taste was OK too.
Churrasco was good, soft.
Pizza was very good.
Swiss burger with fries was very good too.
Dessert was sooo good. Chocolate cake was very rich, great taste.
Portions were perfect.
The place, clean outside AND inside.
The bathroom was very clean.
