We finally made it out here for date night and got to enjoy happy hour. Ordered two dozen fresh oysters and was absolutely delicious!! Host was very welcoming and had a very good waitress! Had a great first time experience at Pearls Oystar Bar, so we will definitely be back again

Made reservation for myself and another couple. Wanted to use open table points also.
Menu changed since last time (couple months ago) for worth. I ordered appetizer shrimps and sides of corn and red potatoes. Sides I paid separately. 2 red potatoes were $5, one corn piece was $5. Shrimps were not peeled. My husband got Caesar salad . There were a lot huge pieces of lettuce, dressing wasn't Caesar dressing. He asked to add shrimps. They added 3 shrimps for $10. When I was ready to pay and asked to use my open table rewards credit card waitress and supervisor looked a that like they saw it first time in their life's. Then supervisor told me that they don't accept those rewards cards, even though at open table it says they do. We won't go back for sure, and don't recommend to go there.

Overpriced for the quality. Had 6 Rockefeller oysters for 22.00 and the fried calamari was chewy

They changed some of the items on the menu to lesser quality items.
A little disappointed in the food. Service was good. Value for your money?, you never get a good value at a casino. You just know that going in

Always good food. Menu has been scaled way back I guess due to this Covid B.S.
Always good oysters. Clam chowder was great. Had Calamari as appetizer was excellent.
Wife had Scallops. The outside was a little charred, which took a little away from the overall taste. Scallops were on a bed of gumbo which was very good. Overall, good service good food. Can't do anything about the noise since it is at the entryway of the Casino

Food was great, server informed us the waitress went to the emergency room so he was filling in and not a server, had an 8:30 reservation, got drinks and appetizers. When our food arrived we tried to order another cocktail and were informed they quit serving drinks at 9 and offered us water for our meal.

The food here was very good, we had the seasonal Oysters as an appetizers and I can surprisingly say they were the best oysters I have ever had. I had the blackened Grouper and Black Eyed peas, it was amazing. My date had the Gumbo which was also very tasty. The reason I gave it a 3 was it was a pretty expensive meal, I really wasn't surprised as the Oysters were expensive and probably rightfully so but it made for a bill that I would say borders on high end Restaurant. The other 'issue' I had was the smell of grease wafting through the place. It wouldn't have been so bad if it didn't smell like the grease needed changed, it just smelled kind of burnt and wasn't a very pleasant to smell the entire time, I felt like I needed a shower afterwards. Anyhoo, decent place, great food, save your pennies before you go :)

Disappointed with experience. Calamari was over cooked. Husband wasn't impressed with the Oysters Rockafeller. The best part of our meal was the salad that we shared.

Food was good except the catfish was greasy & over cooked . Apparently your cook didn’t fry in hot grease! Crab legs had an awesome flavor. Calamari was fried just right. The shrimp was great but I personally think your restaurant is pricy. I would come back.

The food was not cheap, but was VERY GOOD. We were surprised at the serving sizes, menu choices, and wonderful flavors. The Blue Point Oysters were good sized/meaty. Looking forward to our next trip.

Great food excellent service! What a grand experience. I would have to say my only complaint is cigarette smoke from the casino. I hope that this restaurant opens outside the casino. I would visit often. We had a great time outside of that. Thanks again the FRIENDS " RH,TH, LT, KT"

Awesome as always!! I think the kitchen may have been a bit behind but the food is excellent and the staff is very attentive, so it was still worth waiting for. I always get the grilled shrimp instead of fried. The grilled shrimp have a Cajun seasoning and personally I feel they are much better than the fried plus healthier.

Our server Alissa was outstanding and the food was good. We have dined at Pearl’s many times and the last three I have always had a reservation, however each time your hostess has tried seating us at table right by kitchen when all other tables were available as it was 5:00 and you just opened. She said they were reserved and I replied I was reserved too!!! Like Pearl’s but don’t like being treated and can spend our money where we are treated like welcome guests.
