Pelican Point, McIntosh County

This spot in the Belleville community on the Sapelo River has been a seafood destination at least since the 1940s, when Rosco’s Place served up fresh local fare to scores of locals. Later, the Barnett family operated the Sandpiper Inn here until it was struck by lightning and burned in the 1960s.  Mike Phillips opened Pelican Point here in 1986 and in 2015 his son Charlie reinvented the restaurant as The Fish Dock at Pelican Point. While some bemoan the loss of the legendary buffet, new patrons are warming up to the fresher seafood now being offered. And the fresh clams come from Charlie’s Sapelo Sea Farms.

    You’re so close, how about a few good shots from Ridgeville, better known as “The Ridge?” Blue and Hall/McIntosh County Rod & Gun Club are located there along with a few excellent views of a few barrier island. Check it out. Thanks
