After dining here for more than 25 years the Phillips family decides to take away their popular seafood buffet...Was worth every penny for whatever they were serving...We used to love their crab au-gratin, fresh steamed shrimp, fried shrimp,Savannah red rice with okra, and their crab stew...

We were really bummed to make the trip out to Crescent today only to find the restaurant closed due to restaffing. According to Facebook, they're hosting a job fair on 4/10, so maybe they'll reopen soon. I definitely recommend calling ahead though to make sure. The outside looked like a great coastal spot though.

The service was great, the view was great and the two fresh fish dinners that my wife and I had were delicious. This is our second time back in the past month and both trips were excellent.

My husband and I stopped by merely by chance. What a great surprise! The food was simple yet tasty and reasonably priced. Our waitress was refreshing, pleasant and helpful....wish I'd gotten her name. We'd certainly stop again on our next trip! Oh and did I mention the beautiful view 😁

An early evening trip back to St. Simons Island from Hutchinson Island in Savannah for the Savannah Speed Classic provided the perfect time to eat at The Fish Dock at Pelican Point. The place is huge inside and we had to pass the seafood buffet bar on the way to our table. Seeing more food than we could ever try... More

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
