My family is new to town and this place was recommended. I wanted to take my sister-in-law and her husband out for a thank you dinner for helping us move. Cool place on the water with a good view. We were excited when we got there and then things went downhill. We got there at 7:15 and left at 8:15...a couple hundred dollars later. The waitress immediately looked frazzled even though it wasn’t that busy. She asked for a drink order before we even had a chance to look at the menu and came back a minute later. We immediately felt rushed. I could tell she was rushing so I said we are in no rush at all and to take your time. I was really looking for a coursed out meal that lasted a couple hours. We put our drink order in and then ordered a dozen oysters. The oysters came out in under 5 mins and looked like the were prepared beforehand...they weren’t that good. As soon as she set the oysters down she asked if we were ready to put food in before we even got our drinks...I asked to start out with the calamari and then we ordered our entrees. Our drinks came about 5 mins after the oysters got there and then the calamari got there quickly after. I ordered a bottle of wine for when the entrees got there. We got about halfway through our app and drinks and the entrees had arrived...not even close to being ready to eat entrees. She dropped off the wine and we didn’t even drink it and just took it home. We were in and out in an hour and spent a couple hundred dollars. Unacceptable service for that price. It sucks because we probably will never go back and the entrees were actually really tasty and filled with southern flavor. Too bad the service ruined the entire experience.

The views of from our table were absolutely stunning but I would not recommend dining here. Our waitress was not the best...in fact, she said “sorry, I’m not usually this bad.” I ordered the shrimp and grits which I did not enjoy. It was extremely heavy feeling and a little greasy. We would have ordered more wine with dinner but it was quite difficult to get ahold of the waitress.

We enjoyed a quiet evening overlooking the water and marsh. The crab cake appetizer was fantastic and we would highly recommend. Great steamed shrimp dinner as well. One full pound, very large and steamed perfectly! We will be back !

We were seated quickly, and had a nice view. Drink and app orders where taken quickly. We had fried green tomatoes and they were great! That’s about all that was good.

We placed our meal order at 8:05, it was 9:15 when our food came out, my wife’s was half cold. She had the low County boil and I had shrimp three ways. Mine was sub par at best. Very bland, not seasoned well but edible.

Our server was very apologetic about the wait and kept the beers coming and the wife’s Diet Coke filled so that was a plus I guess.

Best Experience yet! Despite the Covid Safety precautions that are in place, with social distancing and mask, Our night was delightful! The Staff and Servers were so attentive yet followed all safety measures currently in place.
We enjoying the Crab Cake Appetizer (a bit pricey for the portion size, but full if crab)! I ordered the Stuffed Flounder without the Mornay Sauce and a baked Potato instead of the Wild Rice. (Came exactly as requested) I have ordered this several times in the past, but this is the first time that the Flounder was not overcooked.
My wife ordered the Shrimp and Crab Au Gratin. which was perfectly cooked and came to the table nice and hot! Perfect!
We would definitely recommend Pearl's to anyone that needs a Quarantine Break with very good food!

The food was great and the service was excellent. Our waitress Marisa was great. She was able to answer all our questions about the menu and even was able to explain the reasons behind her recommendations instead of suggesting something and leaving it at that. The view of the river made it even more better. We’ll definitely be back.

The food was not up to par. The service was excellent. My bacon wrapped shrimp came out with the bacon raw, when it was returned to me it was burned. I enjoyed the oysters and that was all. My son wound up using Uber Eats because he could not eat the hamburger.
