Diner Reviews
  • "I would recommend sitting by the window for a nice view. The food was good and plenty of it. We like walking on the deck after dinner for the view and some nice pix's."

  • "My friends and I have been to Pearl's several times and have always had good food in the pleasant, scenic atmosphere. This is a fine example of Savannah's local flavor."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "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."

  • "My husband and I were celebrating our 4th year wedding anniversary and came to Pearls as a suggestion from a co-worker and we were glad we did. The atmosphere was very nice and romantic and the view with the lakes was gorgeous. The food was absolutely delicious. I had the Shrimp Athena soooo good and my husband had the Seafood duo which he picked the grouper and shrimp and the Georgia Peach martini was awesome as well. It's kind of at the back of some neighborhoods but Go and check it out for yoursel you will not regret it. The next time we are in Savannah we will definitely eat here again."

  • "Pearls is a great place for a nice seafood dinner out. The food is some of the freshest around and the service and view are excellent."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Marvelous marsh view, excellent food and service. The hush puppies are a nice touch, especially with the butter mix (provides a sweet taste). Portion sizes are very generous so don't order "lots" unless you have the appetite to match. Definitely repeatable."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We have been to Pearl's many many times. The food was wonderful as usual.....the service always perfect! But on this 100 degree day, the only thing I can imagine is that the air conditioner was not working well (or at all) because it was unmercifully hot next to the windows. I could not finish my meal because I was so uncomfortable. I realize this was an isolated incident (I hope!) so we will be back! We'd come back just for the Pearl's Puppies.....but the rest of the food was great too!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We come here often because it's so good, but this time brought friends from out of town for the first time. They loved it. Everyone's meal from appetizers to desserts was perfect."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "The staff at Pearl's could not have been more accommodating. They greeted us with enthusiasm, confirmed our reservation, sat us at our favorite table and assigned us a knowledgeable, very attentive server. As always, the food was served promptly, was of excellent quality and the portion was just right. I so much appreciated being treated on Father's Day. It was most generous and highly appreciated. I would recognize Pearl's for anyone looking for an outstanding seafood dinner and a very fair price. It was, once again the type or experience which would make me continue going back (even without the Father's Day treat). Going to Pearl's is a treat!!!"

  • "Four of us went for dinner on Father's Day. I had made reservations when I received the email about 2nd entree free for Fathers Day. My Husband and his brother both had fish. My sister in law had chicken ( she always has this when we come to Pearls. I had the pork chop special. Years ago, there was a stuffed pork chop on the menu which was fabulous- very moist and tender. This one was dry and tough, though with good flavor. I didn't send it back since the restaurant was very busy, and I didn't want to wait any longer.. I should have stuck with fish."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I have eaten here many tmes but, ths fathers day my wife ordred the Shrip Ahena and she really didn't lke it. So I tasted t and there was no flavor and the shrimp were rubbery. So I finished with my meal and we left. I felt bad that I didn't tell the manager. I really lke the food at Pearls guess this was a bad day for them. She left without eating."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Pearl's is my favorite place to eat in all GA or SC. We have been coming there for more then 5 years. All special occasions are celebrated there. We of course have our favorite waitress, but when she is not there, we have never had a problem with any other person. We like that we can call for a reservation and they know us and our preferences. I always get the same thing and my husband never gets the same thing. My hint - if you love steamed seafood you will not go wrong with the crab legs and shrimp - it is to die for. A nice casual place but you are treated like royalty. Good food, great presentation, but they will be happy to change your sides if you do not like what is offered. Just thinking about it and I am ready to return."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Eat here every year and make my reservation through open table. Requested my seating location preference in the notes section and had the exact table I wanted waiting on us. Food is always special and the view is a great one."

  • "Had the pleasure to eat at Pearl's. Ordered Grilled Salmon and my wife had the Linguini with shrimp. I would rate both dishes as average. I would consider other options available closer to the historic district."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Dined with family visiting from out of town who had enjoyed it so much on their visit a year ago that we knew we had to go back. Very delighted that a request for our "favorite" table was granted and while we always enjoy the beautiful view, last night even included dolphins swimming past us. The food is always wonderful. The Bloody Mary's are the best around and our waiter, Alex was charming, attentive and very knowledgeable about the menu. We were all completely satisfied with our meals, the desserts were scrumptious and we couldn't have had a more pleasant time anywhere in Savannah. "

  • "Reservations were ignored while others without any were seated while we waited.The system of Open Table was useless."

The nice hot hush puppies and dinner rolls were a added treat. I will definitely visit here again really soon."

  • "We first found Pearl's three years ago quite by accident. We've recommended it to friends who have recommended it to other friends and all have been very much impressed. We, and others we've introduced to the Pearl, have been back several times - and consider that we all have to drive about 130 miles each way. "
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "One of the best meals we've had in a long time. Decided to avoid Savannah downtown area due to past problems with parking and crowds. Pearl's is a real gem about the same driving time off I-95 as downtown. Beautiful scenery out the window, especially at high tide. Got the table in the corner of the bar area against 2 windows; the best table in the place. I had the seafood and grits, a wonderful combination of shrimp and grouper, and andouille sausage over stone grits with a delicious cream sauce. To be eaten with a spoon. My guest had grilled grouper with crab over orzo. She loved it. Prices reasonable and ok wine list, although white wine choices a bit pedestrian.."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "The food was wonderful! I love the specialty entrees that Pearl's offers which change regularly. There's always something really interesting and different and delicious! The hush puppies are great too! It would be a whole lot better if the road work currently being done could get completed so that it is not such an obstacle to getting to Pearl's. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Food quality is ok, but acceptable. Price a bit high for the quality - love the view and easy for local eating without too much trouble."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "I go to Pearl's more for the atmosphere than anything else - a wonderful waterfront location with lots of docks, oyster beds at low tide, and you can watch the tide come in or go out from your table located right on the water. The food was okay this time - you can go one time and it is great and the next time, not so great. My dinner was not hot, and I like my meals served fresh out the kitchen, but was okay to taste. Presentation was not as good as last time. However, the service was superior! Great waitress who knew just when to come back and visit the table for refills, and anything worked for her in terms of substitutions! That made it all worthwhile!"
