Pearl's Shrimp and Grits
Shrimp sauteed with Andouille sausage, onion and roasted red pepper over stone ground yellow grits in Cajun cream sauce
Enjoyed the atmosphere and the ambiance!! The food was great as always! Me and my family will definitely be back!!!
Good seafood. Nice view. Moderate prices. Good service. Will return.
A great place to enjoy a nice dinner. All four of our dinners were well prepared and very tasty. Service was a little slow, but would attribute that to the virus situation (limited staff). All staff were very friendly and polite. The Hush Puppies are excellent! Highly recommended.
Another great meal, served fast and at the perfect temperature. Attentive staff and fast seating.
Slightly above average food served by attentive, friendly staff in a state park lodge type of building with nice marsh views. The parking lot was a bonus. I would go again.
The food was great the ambiance and the views were breathtaking! Best Mother's Day ever and we will be going back for Father's Day! The whole family loved it!!
We have enjoyed Pearls Saltwater Grille for years, and have thoroughly enjoyed every trip.
Mother’s Day lunch
Despite short staffing, service was excellent. The food is always good. It was the perfect Mother's Day dinner. We have been to this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed. They handle reservations very well but they are definitely needed.
We have never been disappointed. This was the first visit to a restaurant for my parents since the pandemic began last year. We were so excited to see that one of the specials was the crispy scored flounder with apricot chutney. Of course, the hush puppies were wonderful as usual. And the salad was served in a chilled bowl, which is essential.
Delicious as always
The view was fantastic and the martinis were good the food was just ok and the service could use some work.
Excellent food and service!! Beautiful view! We loved it! I would highly recommend this place!
It was just okay. Food wasn’t great, service wasn’t great. We were visiting from out of town and gave it a try based on reviews. Wouldn’t go back.
Both the meal and the service were excellent. The crab stuffed flounder was the finest that I have ever had. Even the hush puppies with honey butter were really good.
Great food, great view! A little drive from the downtown area but worth it!
Pearls never disappoints!
Wait staff was terrific and my salmon was cooked perfectly.
And those hush puppies are addictive!
Alwzys great food at a good price.
Just took the time to come catch up with some old friends. Though there was a notice they were short staffed when you came in you wouldn’t have known it. Our server was amazing and the food was delicious as usual. The grouper was a little over cooked was the only negative for the night. Otherwise perfect!
Birthday dinner for my 17 year old .
Food and service were very good. The shrimp three ways is the best!
Tables are spaced out for covid safety.
Brought another couple with us who had not been to restaurant. Made reservation on open table. We were seated by the very nice lady hostess. Waitress remembered my husband and I from a previous time. Everything was right on. You guys are awesome. Keep up the good work and looking forward to dining with you again soon
I could have given our experience an outstanding but for the brusque manner of the manager who greeted us. This was on Sunday April 25th, 2021.
Split a wedge salad. Plenty for 2 people and very fresh, cold and crisp. Shrimp and scallop risotto was flavorful and full of shrimp and scallops Fresh seafood and full size. My husband had the chicken linguini but did shrimp instead of chicken. Again full size fresh shrimp with excellent flavor He thought it did not need the cheese because the sauce was so flavorful. Hush puppies are always a treat! Mint mojito was also very fresh and flavorful. We don’t dine here a lot but when we do it is always worth the trip!! We loved our table by the window and it was high tide!
Joe the bartender is gracious. He remembers people and is professional and friendly at same time. One of the reason we go there is because of him. We also like to eat at the bar area because of him.
The food was wonderful! Cooked perfectly! Our waitress was so sweet and very attentive!
We had the grouper and shrimp & grits and they were very good as always. The service was very slow for main course and salads were never cleared. Pandemic problems I’m sure.
We really enjoyed the food. The service was excellent and very friendly. It is a bit out of the way from downtown Savannah but it is worth it.
Awesome place in every way! Found on Yelp and so happy we didn’t just go to where most tourist go! Highly recommend any will go there again next time my travels take me to Savannah. 5 stars and would give it more if I could!
What a gem we have here in Savannah right on the water. Great food and great Service! I had the grouper and veggies. It was fantastic. Will definitely try to come here more often.
It was great..!
All around very good and happy experience
Our perfect meal began with complimentary hush puppies and honey butter! Followed by mountains of delicious seafood and the best grits and collared greens we've ever had. Highly recommend for a local and quaint and exquisitely delicious experience on the marshy side of a trip to Savannah/Tybee.
There were 2 large parties which makes it a bit noisy. Not sure if anything could really be done or if it is really an issue. Excellent food and service considering the requirements of the wait staff and kitchen.
The food is always good anytime we come. The servers wore mask but had their mask only covering their mouths. Not their noses. The restaurant was very clean and service was good
Food was good not outstanding. I was surprised to find out that all of their seafood is FROZEN except the Catch of the day. Even the crab is Frozen. Our wait staff was awesome. Great service!
First time to this restaurant based on good ratings from OT and other sites. However, this evening was Very disappointing. While the service was very good the quality of the food was very poor. Very lumpy She Crab soup; tasteless Crab-dip appetizer. Most disappointing were our entries: Grouper and the night's special, Red Snapper. Both fish dishes were SIGNIFICANTLY over salted - to a point they are almost uneatable. Will not return to this restaurant and will not recommend. We understand that most restaurants are suffering from staff shortages but this should not compromise the quality of there product. Having had two very good seafood meals in downtown Savannah the 2 nights prior, this was a wasted trip. Very disappointing evening.
We had a table overlooking water. Service was great and food was excellent.
Went for anniversary dinner. Arrived a little early for reservation and waited a few minutes before we were seated. Waitress was prompt and friendly. Served complementary hush puppies and they were so good. I had broiled tilapia & scallops which were delicious. My husband had steak & a baked potato which he said was good too. Overall had a great experience.
