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

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.

I have tried out many items on the menu as we eat here frequently. The food is consistently good. Catfish is always crispy and hot. Pizza is pretty good considering this is a steak/seafood restaurant. I LOVE the gumbo it is down right tasty. Fish is always cooked to perfection. Service varies from night to night and if you do...

While visiting Wichita Falls, we searched for a good restaurant and found Pelican's. The service was excellent - not a flaw which is so very unusual. The food was very good.

We were in for a short visit from Denmark. My daughter married and just the three of us wanted to dine a nice place and Pelican were recommended. We had oister and lobsters. The food was ok. Not sensational more average. But the waiting was really bad. No time to tell us about the menu and the sides, no water... More

If you would like a fancy dinner with friends or romantic special night, this place has a dark and cozy environment complimented by unique menu items for this town. It is hard to find a place to eat in this city that has fish options beyond shrimp, salmon and tilapia. This place offers a most delightful tuna appetizer and succulent... More

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
