The restaurant is alright, we were put in the back next to the bathrooms where we saw customers plugging in their chargers to their cells. I thought, man...that's trust right there. Weird. The food was absolutely disgusting. The asparagus was string and soggy and drowned in oil, just disgusting. Will never go back and we're new to town, reading reviews,... More

This place was a pleasant surprise. We were here for a friends wedding and the bridal party rehearsal dinner. From the outside this place does not look like much. It's been here obviously for years. At first glance I would think that nothing but elderly people would eat here, it just reminds me of a retirement home when we pulled... More

The service was good and the food was good but we waited at least 45minutes-1 hour for our food. Our table had 3 ribeyes and a stuffed tilapia. The ribeyes came out at least 45 minutes after we put in our order and I had to wait about 10 more minutes for my tilapia to come out. I don't like... More

Hi D, I am sorry that you did not have the best experience at my restaurant. I can tell you that a wait time is typical on the weekends, but once you've been seated, your entree should not take that long even between an appetizer, bread and salad course. And the entrees at a table should always come out at... More

Pelican's is our go-to restaurant for birthdays and other special occasions. We love the bacon wrapped shrimp, scallops, steaks, and of course, the delicious salad.

Last Friday we met friends at Pelican's. Make reservations and ask for Torry! We got lucky to sit in his section. This young man is attentive! Salmon appetizer is our new favorite!

This is not student fare, it is well prepared food served in a crowded lively atmosphere. I try to eat at the bar, and their bar captain Rex, makes a good martini, and is quiet attentive as a waiter also. Last night I had an excellent prime rib, nicely done, baked potato and Caesar salad. All at the bar and... More

Both the service and food were outstanding. A gem of a restaurant with great seafood. What a surprise for a North Texas town. I also can't think of a single complaint about the service. Definitely in the top 3 restaurants in town, if not the top.

We have actually been there two times. The food was always perfectly prepared. I had a steak that was about the best I have ever had. The bartender makes fabulous martinis. Be warned: they may say you don't need a reservation, but do make a reservation. Some nights are busier than others. I would highly recommend this place. We will... More

Not the least expensive in town, but the tuna steak and homemade blue cheese dressing were both excellent! I only wish I could have tried the key lime pie, but they ran out before we finished our dinners.

Thanks so much for the great review! Our tuna is one of the most popular items as well as the fresh fish we fly in from Hawaii. I definately recommend your trying dessert next time because our desserts are homemade by Amanda and they sell out fast! :) More

We celebrated my son's birthday at Pelican's and it was very good. The sea bass special was excellent and everyone had a great time. The birthday brownie with sparklers was a huge hit and our waitress couldn't have been better! Good time!
