A nice surprise in Wichita Falls

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... read 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

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

We enjoyed dinner at the Pelican. Steaks were cooked as ordered and the wine wine and service were great! The smoked salmon is a wonderful way to start off your meal there.

Nice treat! Good Food. Cozy and conducive to spending evening with friends during the holidays catching up. Great service. Only place in town now where you can order sea bass or grilled scallops.

Near MSU, a beautiful, quiet restaurant with amazing food, great drink & wine selections, and wonderful wait staff. My daughter and I ate there on Wednesday night before Thanksgiving during my visit with her. She found the restaurant on Trip Advisor. We were both blown away by the atmosphere and the delicious seafood specials- and we are from the Atlantic... More

Thank you for the kudos. Much of our fish is fresh and is flown in from all over the world. Our steaks are 21-day aged choice beef and that's what gives it such a tender texture and delicious flavor. We are happy that you like these items and have voiced your opinion on Trip Advisor. Thank you for your loyalty. More

Pelican has good food and a wonderful atmosphere but is pricey! Customer service is awesome! I feel the Pelican would be a better "date" night than family (with young children) outing.

We love to treat ourselves with a meal at the Pelican. I can't say which is may favorite. The smoked salmon, wood fired pizzas and lob-kbob are all working coming back for again and again. And customer service is always top-notch. They make you feel like family. I'm already looking forward to my next visit.
