While on a recent trip to Texas we had the opportunity to have dinner at this restaurant. The food and service was so good that we decided to have breakfast at this location the next morning. We were not disappointed.

We have to agree with your kind review. Thank you for dining at Pelican Station. My favorite would have to be the beautiful view. You may be able to spot a few fireworks on Fridays during the summer.
