We were amazed by all of the options on the Coolinary Menu extended through November. Everyone got something different and loved our choices. And our server was great - remembering our names and checking on us often but not too much.

We ordered baked oysters and the ravigote as apps followed by the lobster topped with fried shrimp off of the coolinary menu...all excellent. Then the white chocolate bread pudding put an exclamation point on a great dinner and an even better value.

What a great evening! Our service was excellent (thank you, Sandy), and the food was delicious. The crispy fried whole fish was appealing to both the eye and the palate. The Pelican Club has truly perfected the Coolinary menu - the best offerings I've seen anywhere.

So happy Chef Richard extended the "coolinary" 3 course menu. A group of 4, we tried a variety of dishes and everything was excellent! Had to order extra shrimp & crab cakes because they're soooo good! Service was impeccable. Also impressed by the extra ventilation systems installed, in addition to the appropriately spaced seating. We were very comfortable dining there and highly recommend it.

The volume of noise was crazy high. When completing the survey I chose the highest level of noise and it classified as “energetic”. I would call it “too damn loud”. We had to raise our voices to hear each other at the table.

Otherwise, it was a fabulous meal and evening. Our server (Denise, I think) was spot on all evening and has a lovely personality. The food was presented well with large portions and, best of all, tasted wonderful.

I recommend 5 stars. You should go!

We have been eating at the Pelican Club for many years. This was our best experience ever because there were fewer tables and therefore the noise level was much better. We could hear everyone talk at the table. Before COVID it was difficult to hear what someone at the other end of the table was saying. We usually have 6 to 8 people when we come so it was a problem. Not Saturday night! What a great dinner. Not one complaint and there were 8 of us. Our servers wore their masks at all times and were top notch.
Great food, great service and great ambiance! We will return!

We had an amazing experience - everything was delicious, the service was amazing, and we felt Covid safe in our corner. We were instantly greeted with complementary champagne and a card from the Pelican club wishing us a Happy Anniversary. We highly recommend the Pelican Club for any occasion. Can't wait to return!
