This rates at the top of our local food critics list and mine as well. It is where I go for an extra special dinner. The fried flounder is amazing. They do a Price Fix menu that is a great deal and has many choices, including desert - get the bread pudding! If you want a quieter experience, you might... More

So if you are into Oysters, this is where you have to be. Or move in pretty much. At least during the happy hour. 25c an Oyster! Yes, you heard right. Just order any drink with it and you pay 25c for a huge Oyster. The also have great Crawfish if you cannot eat Oysters for a week straight. And... More

Hands down The Pelican Club is in the top 5 restaurants in the city. Varied menu with fresh ingredients tucked into a cool alley. Service is always excellent. The seafood martini is my wife's favorite and one not to miss. In the summer months they usually have a 3 course "coolinary" special which is always an excellent value. If you... More

I had eaten here once before back before Katrina and remembered it as being very good. It was excellent again! Food was wonderfully prepared and delicious and the service was excellent. Great wine list, too. Would definitely recommend!

We found out about this place from the hotel concierge. Loved the little alleyway that the restaurant was tucked into. Seemed like you were in Europe. The food out if this world and pricing was a great value. Quality was on par with commanders palace, pricing was more than fair. Would recommend going here and escaping the tourist traps. The...

We were here about three years ago and thought it was one of the best restaurants in New Orkeans. New went again and still think that! It doesn't seem to get the publicity some of the others do. Flies under the radar. Maybe that is good. Keeps the rabble out and saves room for serious foodies! The paneled fish was... More

we have been numerous times & have never been disappointed--& we were certainly not disappointed this trip. We endulged in the four cousre treat this trip & all four were very good. Gumbo was the best of the trip-- baked oyster were all you could ask for--fish of the day with crabmeat sauce was excellent---coconut creme pie was sinful!!!!

I dined here with a group of co-workers (11 total) while in town for a conference. We had reservations and were seated immediately. Our server was excellent, very attentive to everyone's needs, which is tough with a large group. The drinks were excellent as well. The food, however, was largely a disappointment. I ordered a medium rare filet mignon that... More

The Pelican Club is a New Orleans favorite. We went as a group of 5 diners and started with refreshing summer drinks- try the Gin Fresca- wow! We ordered 4 appetizers to split. The baked oysters and escargot were a big hit, the calamari crisp and delicious and the Italian salad was absolutely refreshing. Their wine cellar is large and... More
