Average food but great service

We were impressed with the service from the moment we entered. It was very busy but we seated immeDiately and the staff was on top of things. Our calimari appetizer seemed like a frozen product but higher quality than most in that it was very meaty and not enveloped in a heavy crust. My husband... read more

Pelican is a great place. The food is fresh and very well prepared. It is one of the best places in town to get a steak. The seafood is also very fresh and well done. Pricing is not over the top. It is priced as you would expect for a nice location.

First time there, it was OK, we've had much worse, but we've had better as well. My husband's steak was so tough he couldn't eat it and it was cooked the way he ordered it (medium rare). Though we did really enjoy the bottle of wine that we ordered. We were disappointed after being told it was one of the... More

We loved this place, after a couple of bad meals this place was a God send for my family. The waitress was on us in a heartbeat, left menus and took drink orders. We were in early enough for the Happy Hour offerings and I had a nice glass of 12 year old Scotch for $5 - I had two... More

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
