A friend recommended this restaurant a year ago when we relocated. The service and the food was great. Customer service is excellent as well. The 4 of us ordered 4 different meals and we all enjoyed everything on our plate. I was happy the Pecan crusted rainbow trout was nicely seasoned but not salty. We will be back.

I truly enjoyed myself! I felt welcome and you don't receive that everywhere you by the hostess. My waiter Aaron was very nice and polite. The food was delicious and those hush puppies was off the chain. The atmosphere was very nice and casual. I will most definitely return.

This restaurant has superb food, not just a great view. They have standards like fried seafood, but also a pick you fish, your preparation, and your sauce. And they have done very creative dishes as well if you want to branch out. For example, I had the shrimp and scallops spinach risotto. It was spectacular!

Pearl's is out go to family restaurant for fresh seafood with a great setting on the marshes and easy parking! Servers are always welcoming and helpful even when very busy. Fantastic choise for seafood lovers fried or cooked to order with rice and veggies. My tuna was not quite as fresh as usual ie sushi grade but still good quality. This was possibly because it was a Sunday night.

The early bird pre fix menu is a good value. I got a glass of Chardonnay, sweet corn hush puppies, She crab soup (delicious!), fantail shrimp, spicy fries, coleslaw and peach cobbler for $23.95. Our server was very attentive and helpful with the menu.

Made reservations days in advance but was sat in bar with view of dilapidated building next door instead of water. Server was good, but food was just average. Scallop appetizer was tasty. Steamed shrimp lacked seasoning and was served with overcooked corn and coleslaw that tasted of mayo only. My husband's pecan crusted fish was ok but not equal to other fish dinners we've had elsewhere. Mixed drinks were weak. Parking is difficult. Not a bad experience but not a redo or recommendion.

This was our first time trying the restaurant and I would go back. It is not fancy but the setting overlooking the water is peaceful and lovely. I had requested a table with a view and when i checked in for my reservation, and asked if they had gotten my request, I was told that they couldn't guarantee it. Sort of a snarky response in the way it was delivered. Then when we went into the dining room, it was far from full...got the table by the window but just not sure why the other was a necessary way to respond to me. Food was quite good and the portion was more than ample! Waitress was pleasant but I had to ask for other wait people to pour me more water twice. Service was not speedy with the check either, but all in all, a nice night.

We had a party of six & with reservations were seated right away. The food was mediocre at very best. One person ordered the fish tacos and there was one small piece of fish per taco. There should have been two- three pieces to fill the taco. Only one person thought the food was good. Of course, the hush puppies were amazing!
We were entertaining out of town guests and won’t risk it again. Disappointed.
