Our Story

At the Mouth of Fowl River…

…you’ll find The Pelican Reef. For over 15 years, we’ve been providing you with fresh seafood dishes, monthly specials, and weekend entertainment.

During the Spring, Summer, and Fall, there’s a constant hustle and bustle of boats along Fowl River and we’ve always been a part of it.

One of the things you’ll find here is the special interest we take in our food.

What you can eat here

Your choices from our menu range from classic seafood dishes to our own twists on famous sandwiches, like our Reef Burger Reef BLT. You can get a range of drinks from our bar. And if you’re in the mood for a cocktail, we can make that happen too.

And, to add to your meal, you can enjoy a killer view that makes all the difference. In our case, we have a beautiful view of Fowl River. You can watch the sunlight on the water and enjoy the slight breeze as you enjoy your meal we’ve specially prepared for you.

Located next to Fowl River Marina

Located at 11799 Dauphin Island Pkwy Theodore, AL 36582, you will find us right next to The Fowl River Marina. There’s boat lifts and boat launches there to store your boat and you can launch your boat directly into Fowl River any day of the year.

And it’s close to everything.

From Mobile, it’s a quick 20 minute drive down Rangeline. It’s just around the corner from Dog River. If you’re on Dauphin Island, we’re just down the road.

You can hop in the car and drive down for a killer meal or to just come enjoy our weekend entertainment.

What to do on nights and weekends

On nights and weekends, you can always catch live music, karaoke, DJs, or the special events we put on.

During the warm weather, there’s almost always something going at The Pelican Reef on Friday and Saturday nights.
