Needs some tweaks

We dined here in part because there are not so many choices on Sunday nights; and we remembered good food from past visits. The interior is quite dark, and the tables are far enough apart that you cannot hear most other conversations - a plus! I had intended to order a main course but the mussels... read more

The food was very good, and the one thing that wasn't done right they fixed right away. We got fish & chips, oysters, prime rib, and the beef kabob child's plate. Drinks were made very well, and the food was delicious. Some places cheap out on the fish but they used a good firm fish so it wasn't soggy. They... More

Pelicans offers a professional wait staff and very good food; parking can be difficult on weekends. While eating on a a Friday night at the west-side location with our 12 year old, we had steak, shrimp, fish, salad, plus side items. Pelicans can be like walking into a cave. It's dark inside compared to the sun of El Paso. We... More

The only place that I have ate at that they charge you for your sides because they don't come with the entrees. The waitress nor did the menu explain that you get charged for your sides.

Good seafood is not easy to come by in El Paso. AFter one of our favorites spots closed, we looked around for other possibles, and decided to revisit Pelican's, recognizing that "steak" is the first word in its logo. We ordered the trout and the pasta with shrimp, tomatoes and spinach, with a starter of the calamari. The latter was... More

Went here for dinner with a friend. Right when you walk into the place it's like your back in the 80's. This is a very old school restaurant from the atmosphere to the menu. We started out with crab cakes,a cup of thin canned tasting clam chowder and a average looking French onion soup then we had a couple filet... More

I stopped by here a few nights & had the ribeye. I have to say the steak was one of the best I've ever had. The steak was very good quality and it was cooked to perfection-and under 30 bucks! The service was perfect and the ambiance great; can't go wrong with this place.

We've lived on the Westside of El Paso for about 10 years and passed Pelican's on our way out to eat for years, noting how the parking lot was always full. We finally decided to try it ourselves and we were pleasantly surprised at how good the food and service were. We now visit about 2-3 times a month and... More
