Visited on a Sunday afternoon with my family. The food was amazing! We didn't get the buffet because our appetites were not that large. But that buffet looked awesome!! Flounder was so fresh! Light breading on the food allows the true flavor of the seafood to come through. Restaurant is right on the water and the view is great! Even... More

First of all we asked for seat near the window. We were told that since we had children we were not able to sit on the lower level. Our children are 10 and 11. We were told that previously a child had spilled butter and kids aren't allowed in that area. We were seated and it took forever to get... More

Travelling north from Florida and saw a sign for the Fish Dock at Pelican Point. Seafood sounded good so we exited and after about 5 miles of travel through what my GPS called "unverified territory" we arrived at Pelican Point. What a beautiful spot on the Sapelo River. The restaurant is showing its age - somewhere between run-down and quaint.... More

First of all my review is based mostly on the price and quality of food. $32 per person is way to high for what is on the all you can eat buffet. Yes they offer prime rib and crab legs as a part of the buffet. The view is awesome overlooking the water but that alone isn't enough to bring... More

Years later I have tried this place again. Prime rib had a good taste but a lot waste as off fat. Not much steamed seafood. If you like fried - go for it! The steamed crab legs was over cooked or too long in the warmer since it was lol stuck to the shell. We was waiting 1.5 hrs for... More

I went there with a group of class mates. It's away from main centers, spot is great the food is ok. They have a seafood buffet which is priced 30 bucks for all you can eat with a 90 min limit in times of rush. Needs renovation. The place is now called as Fish Dock. Would not visit again.

This place has good fresh seafood, and if you leave hungry there is a problem. It sets right on the water and sometimes you can watch dolphins playing in the water. Parking is limited and if your on a motorcycle bring something for your stand to set on. There is a lot of sand. The key lime pie is Great!

A great out of the way place for seafood, atmosphere and hospitality. The price is excellent for what you get. We go to a lot of high end seafood restaurants - like the Atlanta Fish Market in Atlanta near our home so we know quality food.. The Fish House Pelican is typical of the seafood restaurants, we enjoy at Saint... More

We were travelling north on I-95 in Southern Georgia. We were both in the mood for seafood, and wanted an authentic, non chain, seafood restaurant. We saw the billboard for Pelican Point dockside dining, and it struck the right chord. Exit 58, and 6-8 miles into the "wilderness", we found Pelican Point on the bank of the Sapelo river, shrimp...
