    We were pleasantly surprised to be given a window seat. The view was great...but the food was outstanding. Best hushpuppies we've ever had. Great sea food.

  • Hush Puppies Steal The Show

    I enjoyed the meal at Pearl's. It is a little out of the way and with construction, its a bit of a challenge to get to, but they have a very nice setting and the staff is very friendly. I had the 3 item fried seafood plate, with scallops (oversized and tasty), shrimp and tilapia. I tried to keep it all to the fresh list. My date enjoyed the Mahi-Mahi. Interestingly enough, my two favorite parts of the meal were the french fries and the irresistible hush puppies. They are like little doughnuts. I enjoyed those quite a bit and would probably return just to get more of them. All in all, a good experience. Beautiful views, attentive and friendly staff, and good food.

    Even though endless construction on LaRoche avenue makes the restaurant somewhat difficult to find, you can't beat the gorgeous setting and relaxed atmosphere. The wait staff is very good, personable and knows the menu well. Many of the specialties are quite innovative and reliably delicious. The menu gives plenty of choices ... the Black & Blue Swordfish, fabulous Southwestern Scallops, Cashew-crusted Mahi-Mahi ... half a dozen fresh fish at market rates, fried seafood choices ... there's a lot to choose from and most of it is wonderful. A couple of clunkers include the Crab Melt (all bread, little crab) and the ought-to-be-delicious Peach Cobbler which manages to taste like apples. Still, a dining MUST.

    Everything was good. My only objection was my food. Although beautifully prepared, it was border line cold. I like my food hot. Did not send back as I didn't want my seafood dish microwaved. I'll try again.

    After a recommendation from a friend, my wife and I decided on Pearl's for an elegant honeymoon dinner while visiting Savannah. The service was friendly, fast, but not rushed. The food started with hush puppies and a roll to share. The hush puppies, while not terribly seasoned, had a sweet note to satisfy an appetizer craving. The food my wife and I ordered was delishes and well presented. My parmesan grouper topped with crab meat was savory and paired well with the wild rice bed it sat upon. I recommend this for anyone searching for a classy mid-priced dinner.

    Pearl's is a great little Savannah secret! I lived here 6 years before I knew about it! We took our friends from Texas to eat here because they were wanting good seafood and something with a water view. They were not disappointed! Mike took great care of our table, was very accommodating and did a great job. The food was excellent! Grilled catfish was divine. And the cashew crusted mahi mahi was superb! The baskets of hushpuppies are always a hit as well!

    We were visiting from out of town and wanted a seafood. This was the perfect place with quite the scenic view! The menu is full of seafood variety and is reasonably priced for what you get. All of us at the table were happy with our meals! The only bad thing was the detour due to the construction- I feel bad for these guys. Also, with such a view it is too bad they don't have patio seating.
