Visiting relatives and they suggested this restaurant. The best blackened catfish I've had in a long time. The calamari was tender. Everything was wonderful. There were 8 of us with 2 young children. Our waitress was the best. Overall great dining experience.

We were visiting our daughter in Wichita Falls and took her to Pelican's. We had a very good meal, enjoying some of their seafood specialties.

We've brought out kids here a couple of times, and had birthdays here, but it's best for date night or eating out with friends. It's a little nicer than most places in town, and they have a little more of a grown up menu than others.

Great food. Their steaks and pineapple grilled chicken are delicious. They bring hot bread and sweet butter to the table and you could make a meal on it. The service is very good.

decided to try this place since we used to have one in our town back in the 1980's. Was very surprised how much the decor still looked like the Old Pelicans.

We were not expecting to find a restaurant with such a selection and freshness of seafood/fish in Wichita Falls. Our family ordered calamari, oysters on half shell, catfish and shrimp brochette.

More of a local favorites place. People can have their own wine stored for future use, nice touch. Nice, quiet, good staff, reasonable menu selection, good food, not large portions, but quality. Grilled shrimp is good. Specials on Friday nights. Easy parking.
