Sadly, Pelican's on Lee Trevino is no more. They closed a few months ago and the building has been torn down. Something else is being built in the area, but it doesn't appear to be food related at all. I miss them and their wonderful food terribly. :(

We decided to try The Pelican after passing it many times on our way to our new home. My husband had the ribeye and I had the prime rib. Both were excellent and cooked perfect. We also started with the French onion soup which was very good . You can choice from either soups or salads. We also chose the... More

Went here for a change of pace after frequenting the other seafood restaurants in town. Was not disappointed. Good tasting shrimp, calamari, veggies and fillets. The lobster was well done and seasoned well. The dinner salad was good, while the appetizers were just right. It was a good dinner. Good, attentive wait staff. Available parking. It was a nice and...

Bottom Lin Up.Front, if you participate in one of their nightly specials you cannot use your military, Senior citizen. etc discount. As far as the food, it was good however we probably won't return. We were born and raised on the East Coast thus somewhat snobbish when it comes to seafood........

When we aren't eating steak at the Cattleman's, we stop here for seafood. It is fresh and well prepared. If you do not want it the way its prepared, they'll accommodate your wishes. Try the oysters on the half shell. The sea bass was excellent also. We were sorry to hear they will no longer serve Dungeness crab, but its... More

I have the steak and crap dinner. Let me tell that everything was cooked perfectly and it's rare to fine a restaurant can that cooked crab legs perfectly. My server did an awesome job as well. The steak was juicy and crabs were not soaked in water. The new England clam chowder was made from scratch. It is rare, but... More

If you want great fish and meals made to order, this is the place to go. They're very good at making adjustments to their fare for those with food sensitivities. Can't eat wheat? Butter? They'll change the recipe to suit your needs and it's delicious. While Pecan Crusted Salmon isn't listed on the menu, Per Se, just ask for it... More
