After a Symphony Performance in town, we stopped in to hear a friend perform with a small band. The restaurant offers something that is not too plentiful on the reservoir, a very nice view while dining. The dining area has expanded with even more nice water views and enough space for a very large crowd. The waitstaff was very friendly,... More

Due to the expansion, a much nicer atmosphere and not sitting on top of each other. I would suggest a couple of extra waiters/waitresses during peak hours. The pink Pelican drink still rocks.

Went on a Sunday afternoon. Had to be moved around a lot because of servers not covering areas. Service was slow even though we were the only ones in the room. And we had to wait over an hour for a platter of fried stuff. I worked in a restaurant. Fried platters take 15 min to cook. It was actually... More

The best chicken wings in the world! The atmosphere and all the wildlife for the children to feed from mallad Duck, geese and many type fish (bass, catfish and bream)! Loved it!!

Nice lakefront location and an open air, casual spot for relaxing and enjoying the view over the water but the food and the service were not up to par. Service was slow and the server brought me an iced tea when I asked for a diet soda - then she didn't show up again for ages to correct the error.... More

I loved the location and the ma-hi tacos were really tasty. My husband ordered the catfish basket. He said it was typical, not the best he had ever had, but good. You can drive or boat up to the restaurant. They have live music, and fair warning, it is really loud if you sit out on the deck. It would... More

Heard of this place on a local radio station and decided to try it out. The fish tacos were amazing! Best I have had in quite some time. I ordered the boiled shrimp appetizer. The shrimp were seasoned perfectly and served chilled. The atmosphere was really nice and we very much enjoyed our meal. The porch was open and breezy... More

Went here for lunch and got the blackened shrimp basket, and it was great! It came with 10 Gulf shrimp, 2 hush puppies, a serving of cole slaw, and fries for $12. We also got a basket of fried pickles with ranch and those were good as well. If it's not too hot, sit outside and enjoy the view! They... More

We ate dinner at Pelicans while enjoying the fabulous view of the Ross Barnett Reservoir. The service was excellent and the food was good. The live band was entertaining. We would definitely come back.

Pelican Cove is the only bar/restaurant on Ross Barnett Reservoir that you can access by boat. Because of that, it does a brisk business with the boating crowd. Food is pretty good, and the service is usually fast. Check their web site to see what entertainment is playing. A fun place for afternoons or late night.
