The Pelican, formerly Beaulah's, is CLOSED after 21 years. Went there last night only to find the place empty with "keep out" signs on the doors. No "we've moved signs" anywhere. Very sad. End of an era in Port A.

Sorry to report The Pelican Club has closed. The sister restaurant,The Inferno, is still open. Let's hope they will begin opening for dinner now and not use paper plates.

This appetizers are the best. The ribs, the dips, the shrimp dishes, all wonderful. Nick the bartender makes great drinks. I always enjoy myself when I visit the Pelican Club. Its a little pricey but well worth it.

After almost a decade of giving this place chance after chance, despite a steep decline over the last five years, I am out of chances. It seems that every time we get a particular waiter, we receive terrible service and over cooked, cold food. Tonight,...More

We tried this place based on reviews and the recommendation from the front desk. When we walked up it looked run down and there was nobody eating inside. Inside it didn't look much better and smelled really bad. We were escorted upstairs via what looked...More

Slow service and the place seemed kind of old and run down. Not sure what look they were going for, but it reminded of a seafood place in the early 80's! Not really bothered by the price, but have higher expectations when you order a...More

We came here for a nice meal and walking up to it we were tempted to walk away; it lacks "curb appeal." But...I was really craving sushi and the reviews were good. The restaurant was busy so we had to wait for a table so...More
