“Great Food, Great View of the Harbor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Pelican's Landing is a modern resort located on Lake Texoma just out Gordonville, Texas. This is a "first class" venue for anyone to visit that has all the amenities for sail boaters, business meetings or just a few days to "unwind' and relax. The restaurant has excellent food and service plus a great view of the working marina while dining. Their staff at both the restaurant and the Lodge were very helpful to their customers. The resort has a 3000' grass landing strip for General Aviation pilots but no aviation fuel is available, however 100LL & Jet "A" fuel is available at the Grayson County Airport, Sherman Municipal (KSWI) or Gainesville, Texas Municipal Airport (KGLE) nearby. Overnight lodging will possibly be available but you should call to make reservations and verify this before departing.

“Good food, friendly staff, and a great setting.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

Everything we have ordered there has been good, from burgers to fish tacos to prime rib. The service is outstanding. The building is fairly new, and well appointed, clean, and spacious. Looking out over the docks and lake is so nice and relaxing. There is even outdoor seating for warmer weather. They are open for all 3 meals on the weekends.

The adjoining bar has pub tables, TVs, and music. If you wish to drink alcohol, you'll need to join their "club"... free membership... This area is located in a dry county, but Oklahoma is just a few miles away.

“Great view, service and special events”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

The Valentines Day dinner is awesome. The chef cooks at your table and they only book a few tables at a time so the service is great. Haven't had bad food or service since this chef has been here.

We eat here about once a month and are never disappointed. Food is great from the patty melt to the fish tacos to the kids menu, no complaints!

“Service was great, food was horrible.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2011 via mobile

My son had kids fish and fries, the fish was so thin and barley had any fish to eat. I ordered blackened catfish, they served two very small pieces of it with no exaggeration, they were burned and very salty. My husband ordered the ribs, they had no flavor whatsoever. Sides were ok. My sister in law ordered sirloin steak and hers was good. I'm assuming if you go get steaks for your money's worth. My niece had a pizza those were good too they said. Overall I wouldn't go again.
