My husband and I went for a quick anniversary dinner on a work night. We just wanted to get away from the kids and weren't expecting much, really. The food was fabulous, the service was without error, and it was nice and quiet. His steak and shrimp was great, perfectly cooked. My salmon was buttery and crisply grilled, a huge... More

Pelicans is the nicest dining experience in Wichita Falls. You can't find better steaks and sea food anywhere in the area except maybe Dallas. Their sea bass tasted fresh, and I mean fresh. They said it was shipped in from Hawaii that day and I'd believe it. My wife had the ribeye and it was cooked to perfection. Our veggies... More

Hi Isreal, Thanks for the great review. We are glad you discovered us in land locked Wichita Falls. You mentioned that you thought our tuna would be good smoked, so I thought I would mention our smoked salmon. It is one of Pelican's favorites. Hope you can come in soon to try it. More

There must have been an ENTIRE head of soggy, squishy baked garlic, doused in oil and butter dropped on my Grilled Chicken Breast. I think one clove would season an entire chicken, why the whole head. Also, there was so much oil drenched over the chicken, it would have been easier to eat it as a soup, not the entrée.... More

We are so sorry that you were disappointed with your dining at Pelican's. Our garlic chicken is served with our roasted garlic & olive oil. However, we do have a grilled chicken that is lightly seasoned and grilled. The ingredients in our restaurant our fresh, locally sourced, handmade from scratch. More

We always enjoy our dinner at the Pelican. The atmosphere is relaxing. Family owned and operated with excellent wait staff, ALL of whom are very friendly and personable. Take your pick on the entrees, I have listed a few of my favorite. BUT, please ask for Amanda's fresh desserts. If she has been in the kitchen cooking, you can bet... More

My wife and I always like to try new places when we are in town and we heard about Pelican's from a friend. The food was good and by far one of the better ones in Wichita Falls, but nothing jumped out to me as being great. It was a little costly especially for just me and my wife eating,... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I can see by your rating that you think our prices are a little high, but I must assure you that the product (fresh fish, 21-day aged choice steaks, homemade desserts) are worth it. We take pride in preparing our foods from scratch with quality ingredients well beyond most restaurants... More

I remembered the Pelicans restaurants from the 1970s and was intrigued to see the old sign posted in a new place in Wichita Falls. That's where the similarities ended. Still delicious seafood, but the decor and menu is a nice balance of steakhouse and seafood. Wine list was extensive and, if I was a Wichita Falls resident, I would stock... More

Was in town for a work conference. Found this place highly recommended on Trip Advisor. We made the right choice. The service was great. Waitress very friendly. Food was fantastic. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. If ever back in Wichita Falls will be coming back.

We have been regulars at Pelican for years and for good reasons. It is by far the best restaurant in the area and the only one that serves fresh seafood. The food and service is always excellent. The hardest decision is what to order. My favorites are the Grilled Tuna, Scallops, Stuffed Tilapia, and the Prime Rib. They also have... More
