The Rusty Pelican is a Miami area staple. Take the bridge over to Key Biscayne and it's right there on the left, be sure to ask for outdoor seating if the weather is good. We enjoyed the sunset with the Miami skyscrapers in the background...More

Parking's free if you park park yourself--I think the spaces are designated, don't remember. Valet parking is available, but it's just a few steps closer to the restaurant.

I seems to recall they have a bar area inside with a view. We chose to sit outside.

Description
You haven't seen Miami until you've seen it from The Rusty Pelican Restaurant and Special Events Center. The Rusty Pelican is the most sought after restaurant with a view in South Florida. With the sun setting on Biscayne Bay against the backdrop of the alluring Miami skyline, The Rusty Pelican is the perfect spot for a romantic interlude or that special occasion. Located in Florida on the Island of Key Biscayne and just minutes away from Interstate-95. The Rusty Pelican has a breathtaking view of the City of Miami while offering superb cuisine and service. The fresh seafood changes with the season, deliciously enhanced with island-influenced salsas and flavors.
