The food was good. The server tried. They are a seafood restaurant that was out of tuna, grouper, bacon wrapped shrimp and crab spinach dip. Took over an hour to get our orders. The Calamari was excellent and a large portion. The marinara with it was mediocre and bland. Poor planning. Poor management.

Caring was not in the vocabulary of the waitress or hostess stand. We had reservations, we were seated on time and then the service ended... sat for 15 minutes with just menu's while everyone seated around us who came in 10 minutes after us got drinks and bread and had their orders taken. Asked the hostess station for help and were just told your server will get to you soon!!! It's a shame because the food was good, but with so many choices in Savannah of places to go we won't be going back after being treated like that.

Always excellent. More than anything, consistent, week after week after week. Reliable for classic seafood dishes. Creative new things, such as oyster apps, scallop and shrimp risotto, and crab stuffed salmon.

We were visiting family in Savannah over the weekend and enjoyed dinner at Pearls. We had reservations and were seated promptly. The service was great as was the food. Wonderful hush puppies! Beautiful Marsh views with a large deck on the backside of the restaurant but no easy way to get out there... Lovely relaxing dinner and try the peach cobbler if they have it! Delish!

Lovely restaurant on the water. Nice menu, good seafood assortment. My husband and I felt like we were on vacation when we visited Pearl's. Kind of a Cape Cod feel, maybe. The food was good, the menu isn't exactly a "foodie" menu but we enjoyed our choices very much. Our server was pleasant and attentive. We will go there again.

Got there at 5:15. Seated at a beautiful table by the window. Great view. Waitress immediately brought delicious ice cold water and took our drink orders. I had the fried green tomatoes salad which would have been perfect except the greens had way too much vinegar on them. Hubby had the house salad that was excellent. For dinner I had the grouper and hubby had the snapper. Both large portions and cooked to perfection. Save room for dessert, the key lime pie is amazing.

We made reservations for when they first opened so we had a nice relaxing dinner with a spectacular view before the restaurant got too crowded. Neither one of us really cared for the crab, shrimp & salmon cake appetizer but the fried shrimp and seafood au gratin dinners were really good. We also both got dessert (key lime pie & peach cobbler) and they were both great too! The waitress was very attentive and accommodating which made for a very good experience. We will definitely be back!

By far the best seafood I have had this year and trust me when I say I eat lots of seafood. Ahi grade yellowfin tuna steak with chardonnay butter was unbelievable. Nice views and wonderful atmosphere. Highly recommend and will be back for another visit.

Still a top pick for my wife and I for great seafood. Had the grouper and it was perfectly prepared. Wife had the Shrimp Athena and was very satisfied. Great waterside views away from the hustle and bustle areas of the city. Great appetizers and deserts, great wait staff, good wine list. Would highly recommend that you try Pearle's when in Savannah.

The calamari was slightly over cooked, with lightly seasoned breading that left a little to be desired. The house specialty drink was delicious but the bartender was sorely lacking the ability to make a proper old fashioned. The tuna seemed to be a poor grade but was well seasoned and edible. The crab stuffed flounder was a little salty in spots but tasty nonetheless. Chad offered good service, friendly and attentive. Overall, it was pleasant dining experience with a peaceful atmosphere and excellent customer service. I would eat there again.

Waiter was sressed that he had too many tables. Fried shrimp were excellent, but my crab legs were very small and two clusters, all on small plate with corn u underneath the crab legs. Cole slaw came 10 min later.
Had much better experience in the past.
