About Us


We are a family owned restaurant, originally from Chicago where we had a restaurant for 25 years. We moved to the Seattle area in 2000, opened the Rusty Pelican Cafe in Seattle in 2002, Edmonds in 2012 and Mill Creek in 2013. Peter and Marilyn have been married for over 30 years and in that time they have either owned or worked in restaurants. Peter moved from Greece to the United States when he was only 16 years old and began working in a restaurant as a busser. He later worked at 2 restaurants cooking for large banquets as well as a steak house where he met Marilyn.

At the age of 26 Peter thought to use his knowledge and opened a very successful restaurant with his 3 brothers that sat 300 people. He then left it to his brothers after owning it for 25 years to join friends in the Seattle area who worked for him in Chicago.

Marilyn has also had a long career in restaurants starting work at the age of 8 working at her grandmothers Sweet shop and has been working in them ever since.

We have twin daughters who are also partners in the restaurant as well as our other business serving authentic Greek fast food called Gyro Delight in Lynnwood. Peter is the chef at both restaurants.

We believe in giving back to our community

Charities We Support

We believe in giving back to our community

Even though the restaurant is very demanding, our family and staff believe that everyone must give back to the community.

We believe in supporting our local senior citizens.

Since 2003, we have contributed up to 70 lunches, 3 times a year to the Wallingford Senior Center.

Every year, we donate goodies to dozens of fundraisers.

An unlimited amount of desserts have been given to schools, churches, and special interests as fundraising items.

We are a family of animal lovers, so we love to support animal welfare organizations.

Beginning in 2004, we held fundraisers for the Arlington Humane Society.


In 2007, we began sponsoring the Annual Silent Auctions and Dinners for Rabbit Meadows on Lake City Way, and in 2008 we hosted the Annual Silent Auction & Dinner for Rabbit Haven (Gig Harbor). We donate our restaurant and all the food for these events, which means that 100% of the proceeds go directly to the animals. And yes, in case you are wondering, we have our own wonderful house rabbit (not at the restaurant, of course. Bella stays at home.)

The wonderful organizations we support include:
