Popular restaurant which has the added benefit of jazz on some days during the week. Lovely fish, no matter how it is served. Great salad comes with all entrees. Enjoy!

Pelicans Restaurant offers a variety of seafood and steaks. I had the grilled salmon which was excellent. The restaurant could use a little more lighting.

Most visits are as expected. Occasionally, the order is a little off. I usually order one of three entrees: charcrust ribeye, teriyaki chicken, or grilled salmon. The chicken is always great. The salmon is sometimes a little strong-smelling but tasty, as long as I remember to order it medium. The steak is very unpredictable. It must depend upon the cook... More

This restaurant has a great, relaxed atmosphere, and the food is top notch. Great service, and reasonably priced.

Even with a reservation we waited over 40 min. Then we got the worst table they had. When we asked for a better one, the host and mgr were very rude and disrespectful.

With a name like Pelican's, I was looking for a real seafood restaurant. Almost all of the seafood offerings were fried. No shrimp scampi or grilled shrimp. Everyone else at my table ate steak, I got the fried shrimp. It seemed to be coated in something sweet like cake batter. The service was great as was the clam chowder. Everyone... More

Coming from the Great Lakes region, my husband and I have looked for a place that has good fish on the menu. We received a coupon in the mail and decided to try Pelican's. The fish dinner I had was excellent, the fish was fresh, and it had not been frozen. It was prepared to perfection. We were both very... More

Just have a cocktail and some old school fried zucchini and mushrooms! I have been disappointed too many times ordering other items on the menu. Shrimp cocktail, yucky limp shrimp, Fried shrimp, too floury and heavy batter with bland cocktail sauce, where is the horseradish??? baked potato: really? margarine???? My mom likes the steaks.
