Pearl's Shrimp and Grits
Shrimp sauteed with Andouille sausage, onion and roasted red pepper over stone ground yellow grits in Cajun cream sauce
The atmosphere was beautiful and the food was amazing and great service from waiter Ashley as well. Thank you for making my husband's Father's Day dinner a blast.
I ordered the chefs special which was the swordfish. The fish was very tender as I prefer mine well done but the toppings non the fish (blue cheese) was just too over powering. The rest of my experience was great. Our server was very attentive.
The She Crab soup is the best and the views of the marsh are just beautiful. Good food Great views!
The food was incredibly good! And the service was excellent!
Food was excellent and the views are spectacular! 10/10 would recommend.
As usual, the food was great. Service was outstanding. We will be back.
Staff was very friendly. Food arrived in a timely manner. Everything tasted great!
Every bit as excellent as it was before the pandemic. A lot of new wait staff and wait staff trainees It will take time to fine tune the machine as things get back to normal, but they are well on the way. Even oysters in the half excellent even in June.
Our sever, Jaime was very nice and the food was great!
Great- as always! Definitely my go-to for special occasions or just when a I need great seafood.
It is very beautiful seating by the the water. Food and service were great. Great place to celebrate her birthday.
Beautiful views but food was average and service was slow. We received the hush puppies after our meal was over and they were the best part
Be sure to make a reservation, they are not back to full staff yet! The food was great! I love fresh seafood and the flounder I had was wonderful, my husband had the grouper and he said the same. My one and only issue was my wine glass was cloudy. Don’t know if it was water spots from the dish washer or that they just weren’t cleaned well. But all in all a great experience and I wish our reservation had been earlier so we could have enjoyed the view more! Try it you won’t be disappointed!
Great service and a great water view. Will visit again
I am never disappointed at Pearl’s. I had the fried shrimp and my husband had the crab stuffed flounder. Both meals were yummy. The staff and server were great / attentive and checked back on our table throughout the meal. I love Pearl’s - great view too!
Loved the food and the view. And Kristen was awesome!
Excellent and varied menu. Pups are the best bread in town. large portions on entrees, great food value.
Great main course selection. The crab stuffed flounder was excellent. The shrimp Zaren and low country boil was very good. The seared Tuna was prepared exactly as ordered. Our waitress, Jaime was fantastic. She was very attentative and had a great personality.
Our group was thoroughly satisfied with our experience.
I always enjoy coming here! Great fresh seafood, servers are awesome! Great views of the marsh and not crowded during the weekdays, right when they open.
The prices are very reasonable for all you get and of course the hush puppies are to die for!!
We enjoyed a small family celebration for our son's 20th Birthday.
This experience was Very good. They were very busy and understandably because of covid they were understaffed. But our service was excellent and the food was great.
Good seafood with a great view. Always friendly staff.
Dinner was excellent. 6 different entrees, all were perfect.
Perfect. Wait staff awesome. Great view. Good food. Love the neighborhood.
Great meal. The hush puppies are great. We had the flounder and the grouper. Both were delicious.
Loved it! Everything from the great view to the excellent service to the superb food was outstanding!
First time there at the recommendation of a friend. We loved it! Food is fantastic. The hush puppies are to die for. The fried green tomatoes are hard to beat.
Our entries were out of this world.
We are already planning our return visit.
Last but not least the service is top notch.
We had an 8:30p on Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. Got there early and were accomodated. The staff were friendly but very stressed. They had signs all over asking for patience as they are short staffed. Our waitress worked hard to help make it as good an experience as possible but she was stressed. They were out of a number of wines and food options. The hush puppies were really tasty and the she-crab soup was thick but reasonable . My wife had the simply grilled grouper which was good. My grouper Parmesan was undercooked and tough. It seems like the restaurant is having a challenge recovering from COVID challenges. Needs some updating and help.
The waitstaff was great but the restaurant was out of a lot of food and service was slow. Be prepared for a wait.
Pulling up to the restaurant, our first impression was a hole in the wall restaurant. After walking in, we were stunned by the amazing atmosphere and aesthetics within the establishment. We were immediately seated with a great view as per our request in our reservation. The server, Ashley, was absolutely amazing and very helpful towards our dinner options. Dinner was served in a reasonable time. The hush puppy corn fritters were really good. Our meals consisted of the Low Country Boil and the Shrimp Three Way. We would rate the food subpar. The Low Country Boil plate had mild to no flavor from the Old Bay Seasoning. Everything was cooked properly, it just lacked flavor for a Low Country Boil. The Shrimp Three Way was great until taking a bite of the bacon wrapped shrimp and biting down on something hard, like a small rock. The fried shrimp was no better than any other basic shrimp meal I’ve had. The view was spectacular. Unclear if we would come back or recommend in the future.
Good food, nice atmosphere. Definitely recommend for a nice night out
Came for dinner and so glad we did! It is outside of downtown Savannah but so worth it!! The view is amazing. They were understaffed, thanks covid, but we didn’t mind waiting. Definitely will be back!
Wonderful service , beautiful views and food was really delicious ! Highly recommend
Great food, great service and great location! At a time when restaurants are struggling to find staff and offer a good experience, we consider Salt Water Grill to be one of our favorites.
Excellent waitress! Prompt and pleasant! Twas a birthday dinner... a fav place to go
Food and service were excellent. Thank you for accommodating our reservation for 10 people. I'll be back.
Seafood here was amazing! Beautiful view of the river from the dining room. When we arrived, we were told they were short handed so expected to have a long wait for food but everything was served fairly quickly & our server was super friendly & attentive. One of the best restaurant experiences on our visit!
Was not as good as before pandemic. Still great but something was just not the same.
So many delicious dishes it’s hard to choose which one. Although I will say, I didn’t care for the Green Fried Tomatoes. The servers are very friendly and want you to be happy. We’ve gone there 3 times now and look forward to going back!
