As always, the food was delicious. The hushpuppies are a special treat. Anytime we are in Savannah, we always make it a point to eat at Pearl's.

I brought some out-of-town visitors to Pearl's, after bragging about the hush puppies. We were seated promptly and encouraged to try to Peach Cobbler for dessert. The waitress was very attentive and sweet, ensuring that we had plenty of drinks and that our food was served quickly. Each of us enjoyed our meals, ranging from Blackened grouper to the stuffed flounder. Lastly, the Peach Cobbler was delicious. I highly recommend Pearl's Saltwater Grille.

The server had a couple of entree recommendations that we went with ( grouper and flounder) that were both good. I thought the she crab soup was way too salty but my wife’s fried green tomatoes were good. Overall we enjoyed it

Food was great but our server wasn’t the best and we understand the staff shortage but we didn’t get drink refills till after we were done with our food ready to leave. We will come back and check it out during the day for the view of the water and really yummy food.

Pearls has been a special occasion restaraunt of ours for several years. Being on the river, looking out on the moon rise at sunset, the good food, great service...
It's our "we've got a place" restaraunt.

Sat us in the bar directly beneath tv when rest of restaurant was available. Steamed shrimp undercooked and mushy. Waitress confused drinks and food- did not give good service. Never asked about our food.
I know there are problems during the pandemic bit this was way below par for them!

This was my first and last time eating here; I was not impressed. The host at the front door was great. I asked for the Laroach Ave. Lemonade to drink and was told they were out of the orange liquor, asked if they had vanilla vodka, they did I asked them to substitute the vanilla for the orange, only to have our waitress come back to tell me they were out of the blackberry liquor that goes in the drink. The spinach dip was good, parmesan calamari was not impressive, I had the seafood platter and it was over breaded and left sitting in the grease so it was soggy. Our waitress only checked on us once, she refilled my husband's water at that time and didn't come back until she brought us the check. I will not be eating here again.
