About The Pelican Club
The Pelican Club, offering a wide range of fabulous New Orleans dishes, consists of three dining rooms and a large bar fashioned from a handsome, 19th-century French Quarter townhouse, rising from the corner of Bienville Street and Exchange Place in the heart of the French Quarter. Owner, Richard Hughes, and his wife, Jean Stinnett-Hughes, transformed a neglected architectural gem into a welcoming restaurant decorated in a crisp blend of traditional and contemporary. Each room has its own ambiance, created with such diverse elements as burnished Louisiana cypress, contemporary paintings by New Orleans artists, antique prints, and the dramatic contrast of black-leather banquettes against cream-colored brick walls. Such an atmosphere is sure to make your meal feel like a truly New Orleans experience.

The Pelican Club Ratings and Reviews
Delaney made the dinner! SUPER personality and did a great job on just her second night of working at this old New Orleans established restaurant. The trio of duckling was excellent, though the confit was only warm. The broiled oysters to start was outstanding as was my wife’s salad with endive, grapefruit and goat cheese. Her fresh catch of the day was indeed that, served with succotash. The coconut cream pie for dessert was the best I’ve ever had. Shoutout to Vicky who was watching over Delaney during in her training.
Our first table was in the main dining room. Two very large tables were next to us so it was extremely loud. We asked to be moved. The manager was extremely accommodating and moved us to the second room which was better. Food was good except the appetizer ribs were average. Expensive for a small portion and were not very tasty. But overall it was a fun nite.
The first two rooms are nice while the 3rd room is not on par with othe others. If course, that's where we were seated. They forgot our appetizer and delivered the entrees. When we inquired about it our waiter apoligized and offered to get it. We cancalled it but he wanted to bring it anyway complimentay. It showed on the bill. They served the second Black Cherry Martini without the cherry. Many other great option in the Quarter
We used to LOVE this restaurant. The service the last three times we have gone has been so poor that I’m not sure there will be another. The waitress was inattentive and did not do her job very well. The food was mediocre. I had the lobster, shrimp and scallops. It was a small lobster, this was over boiled and tough. The claws were not even cracked, and rye shrimp was so over cooked it was rubbed. The scallop was seared but was cooked long before we ordered it. Too many good restaurants to bother with this one .
We found the Pelican Club on Open Table while visiting New Orleans. What a fantastic find!!! Everything was perfect. Our server was incredibly attentive and allowed us to enjoy an "unrushed" dining experience. We will most definitely be back on our next trip.
