Exit east off I-95 at the coastal Georgia town of Eulonia, and soon you're winding along back roads barely wide enough for two cars. Keep your nose toward the Sapelo River, and after a few turns you'll find yourself dead-ending at a gravel parking lot. Welcome to Pelican Point Restaurant.
Don't Miss: You'll notice the freshness right away as you wade through the all-you-can-eat buffet and its more than 25 seafood items. If you're not quite that hungry, try the Fresh Fried Shrimp, a small mound of sweet Georgia whites landed right off the coast. No matter what you decide, you must try a cup of their spicy crab stew (accompanying all the entrées and the buffet); it's a must-slurp. Tanner Latham
