Consider yourself lucky if you can get into the Lucky Pelican, a big, noisy, friendly seafood house in the part of the county where hordes of baby boomers have headed for a happy Florida retirement. These people like to eat out. The lure is familiar but expertly prepared seafood and lots of choices, many of them generous fried or grilled platters of assorted fish and shellfish with excellent sides and sumptuous salads. There’s a small outside seating area and booths, tables and a raw bar inside. Groups of friends and neighbors meet here regularly. They’re on to something good, and if you have to stand in line for 20 minutes, remember it’s just another day in paradise and the sun feels good on your bare legs.
