Meet our lead staff members and our owner.
- Executive Chef – Jeana Allen – Our Chef does an amazing job of keeping our quality high & our staff happy. Jeana loves to rise to the occasion with culinary challenges & she is a kind, consistent leader that people love to follow. I am blessed to continue to have the pleasure to work with such a delightful soul.
- Sous Chef – Marvin Kane – Marvin & I have been working together in LeClaire restaurants since 2000 when Marv was in highschool. I am so grateful to have his decades of experience back in our kitchen at the C&P. Marvin brings the highest standards, a real passion for making great food, & his soups are second to none.
- Lead Server – Autumn Skelton – Autumn has been working in local restaurants since 1992, and here at the Crane & Pelican since 2018. He was recognized by Visit Quad Cities as one of the finest servers in the Quad Cities in 2021. Autumn can wait on 17 tables and not forget your side of ranch. He is also an amazing dad and general great human being so if you happen to have the pleasure of having him wait on you take a minute to get to know him. You’ll be glad you did.
Owner – Mandy Harvey – I am from right here in the Quad Cities. My Grandparents built a house in LeClaire right after WWII. My father watched as they built the I80 bridge here. My Mother operated a retail business in LeClaire for over 20 years. I have 25 years in restaurants, and I absolutely love what we do at the Crane & Pelican. I have served on the Tourism Board, and I am currently on the Library Board here in LeClaire. I am proudly raising my children in this great community, and I’m always looking to make new friends. I love working with people to make sure we get every detail just right.
Come see why we were named the most adorable restaurant in Iowa.
