The noise level was caused by our celebration of my sister being a cancer survivor and they were gracious.....

The location and view are terrific. The Hush Puppies...yum! The She Crab soup was rich and flavorful. My only complaint with my meal, the local Wreckfish special, is that the fish was not trimmed very well. The blood line and strip of fat left on were unappetizing.

I cannot possibly say enough about how good the food is here. I had probably the best piece of fried fish I have ever eaten, a beautiful piece of fish, perfectly cooked. Same for the shrimp. Excellent baked potato. The only thing lacking was a bit of a breakdown in service, which for this restaurant, is totally rare.

Pearl's is our go to place for special occasions. They are consistent in food and service. I love how their shrimp tastes like it was caught the same day. They are accommodating when I want to substitute sides for sausage, yum! The she crab soup is wonderful, and we always order calamari. I highly recommend Pearl's.

I was there for mother’s day and I must say they have the best hush puppies I’ve ever tasted! The dry dock pasta (I believe is what it’s called) was pretty good. We had a window seat that overlooks the marsh. It was nice overall.

This Mother's Day meal was the absolute worst I have ever had at Pearl's. Waiter was pleasant, and polite..but we didn't see him much. Must have been understaffed for holiday lunch hours. Food choices were are great as ever, but our four meals arrived with only part of the plate hot..waiter was busy and absent or I would have sent it back. Have never had a disappointing meal here and this was awful. Even the She Crab soup was served very lukewarm ......those wonderful hush puppies were totally cold and served with only one soft butter.....usually have three. Also noticable that restaurant was quite emptier than usual. Usually love this restaurant and drive two hours to get there...not anymore.

Our family of five enjoyed a delicious meal. The Mahi Mahi with crab was very fresh and cooked perfectly. The she crab soup was especially good with larges pieces of crab. Our waiter Houston was very attentive to our needs.

As usual, the food was good, the service average. We brought an out of town couple to dinner at our favorite seafood restaurant, and all was fine until a group of women at an adjacent table became so loud we couldn't converse without having to raise our voices to nearly shouting. Unfortunately, this is a recurring problem at Pearl's. We asked our server to do something about it, but nothing happened. Too bad that one group spoils the dining experience for everyone else. I think we'll be dining elsewhere in the future.

The ambiance and view are lovely ...the food is good and prices are within normal limits . I can’t give 5 stars because of the reservation method . You have to use “open table “ and 2 1/2 weeks prior to the Saturday date , it would not allow a table for 11 people unless it was 8 pm or after. Upon our 6:15 pm scheduled arrival time , we were accommodated after a lengthy conversation. Our waitress’ gracious manner made up for the inconvenience.

I have eaten here many times and it’s my favorite place to go when in Savannah. My most recent visit was just a tad off the usual mark of excellence. My main complaint was the oyster appetizer. The price was premium but the oysters were some of the smallest I’ve ever been served anywhere, much smaller than prior visits. Otherwise it was a great meal in a beautiful location with excellent service.

I love this restaurant. Love the beautiful setting & always request a seat by the window. Love the “hush puppies” & peach cobbler. My only complaint is the bartender made a terrible Moscow mule. Had a terrible aftertaste & I only drank 1/3 of it. But this restaurant is terrific .

We had the crab dip appetizer, shrimp salad, shrimp Athena, shrimp 3 ways, and crab cakes, with peach cobbler and creme brulee for dessert. All delicious! One of our party was gluten intolerant; our server was helpful in offering alternatives that would enable her to enjoy her meal with us. A lovely evening in a lovely setting!
