Named "Best Brunch in Tampa" by Tampa Bay Magazine
Thanks to the pandemic, brunch has changed a bit at The Rusty Pelican. Gone is the buffet the waterfront eatery was known for, but some of its dishes are still available on the a la carte menu, like the Alaskan crab legs and crab cake Benedict. They’re joined by new options like the Hangover Hash (smashed tater tots with prime rib, poached egg and hollandaise) and Fruity Pebble pancakes. A pair of brunch buddies can tuck into the signature platter for two, which comes with a half dozen different options to try. Don’t forget about mimosas — which are still unlimited and come in unique flavors like tangerine ginger and pineapple peach — and the gorgeous view of Old Tampa Bay. Not even a global pandemic can touch that.
