Sam: 5 out of 5 Stars (July 31st, 2014)
Paul: I ordered the Crab Cake Sliders with Sweet Potato Fries. My appetizer was Beer Battered Onion Rings. I drank water with lemon. This place should probably be named "The Spicy Pelican". My crab cakes were very spicy, but I could handle it and they were GOOD. The food here is AWESOME! Very good service.
The second floor outdoor bar area is like a tree house - and everybody likes tree houses! Great view! You could see the water and the docks and you could see boats coming in and out. If you are a spicy kind of person, you should definitely go if you are ever on Amelia Island. It's in downtown Fernandina Beach.
Sam: I had fried shrimp with beans and rice. I also had some onion rings. I liked them a lot.
Five out of Five Stars (June 3rd, 2013)
For my appetizer, I had chips, salsa, and queso dip. The salsa didn't taste that spicy. It wasn't spicy at all, actually. The queso dip was warm, unlike some other places I've been where the queso dip was cold. The chips were surprisingly warm, which is a very nice feature. The chips were thick. Normally, chips are thin. So, whenever you dip them into queso, they break. Not the case here!
For my entree, I had the Seafood Chimichanga with beans, rice, guacamole, and sour cream. It had crab, lobster, scallops, shrimp, and cheese in a burrito case thing. The crab was very soft, which I like. And it was also warm. All the seafood was very fresh. I could tell because fresh seafood is tender and juicy.
The guy who served us came back on a regular basis to see us and ask us, “How’s the food?” and to give us more chips and salsa. He was very nice.
The place was very clean and has a really nice, big bar with a super-lot of drinks, including 1800 Tequila! There was a painting on the wall that was actually one of the pictures that is in our art room at school! It’s called “Flower Girl with Lilies”.
The bathrooms were surprisingly clean. In other Mexican restaurant bathrooms, they are normally like dirty and not cared about from the owners.
You have to go to Pablo’s if you are ever in Fernandina Beach!!
Sam: I had the burrito with beans and rice. It had chicken in it. I liked it a lot. In the bathroom there was a locker door, it was like a small rectangle and it had a window. And the stall had a window. It was cool.
3 3/4 out of 5 Stars (May 24th, 2013)
For my appetizer I had bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and fried calamari with marinara sauce. These were very good. Normally, calamari is really chewy, but here it was not so chewy – but just chewy enough! The calamari was also a good presentation.
The Seafood Ravioli (What Paul Ordered)
For dessert, I had the chocolate mousse. I tell you, it was out-of-this-world awesome! It was very airy like a good mousse. My whole family loved it.
Sam: I ordered the cannolis for dessert. “Bleh.” Because they were not sweet. (Although my dad liked them.) Chocolate Mousse was much better.
