We are very excited to announce that we will be reopening our doors this Wednesday, May 20th at 5 pm. We are accepting reservations for our dining rooms, bar and outdoor seating on Exchange Alley. Rest assured that we are following all government guidelines set forth to ensure that our guests and staff stay safe and healthy. While some of these safety precautions may feel a bit unfamiliar to all of us, we will do everything that we can to make sure that you have a comfortable, relaxing and delicious experience with us. Though our dining rooms may surprise you with all of the open space needed for safe social distancing, we hope you will find comfort in the Pelican Club favorites on the menu such as our Clay Pot Barbequed Shrimp, Crispy Whole Fish, Pelican Club Baked Oysters and Paneed Gulf Fish to name a few.

For the safety of our team and our community, we are asking our guests to follow these guidelines set forth by our state and local governments:

  1. Please wear a face mask. If you do not arrive with your own, we will provide you with a disposable mask at the door. We ask that you wear the mask while entering, exiting and whenever you leave your table or the bar. We will provide you with a paper bag to store your mask while you are seated at your table or at the bar.
  2. Please practice social distancing with our team and with other guests.
  3. Please wait outside if our entryway is occupied by other guests. We will be with you as quickly as possible.
  4. Currently we are only permitted to serve alcohol to guests ordering food.

Advance reservations are recommended as we will be operating at 25% capacity.

Please call us at (504) 523-1504 or visit our website to make a reservation.

Our hours for this week will be Wednesday – Sunday from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM. We will continue to offer our Takeout Menu during these hours as well. To place an order for pick up, call (504) 523-1504 between 11:00 AM and 8:00 PM.

Please check out website and social media platforms for frequent updates to our hours of operation, menus and more.
