Overall great experienced. We were sat at a table with a view, it was clear that they wanted to take care of us (we walked by plenty of open tables). Matt, our server, was helpful and hilarious. The food was incredible. Couldn’t have asked for more.

Great atmosphere! Appetizers were amazing. However, peel and eat shrimp was very tough - brought it home for the dogs. Still enjoyed the evening to celebrate my daughter leaving for college.

Four of us dined on the outdoor patio on a Tuesday evening. Note that even if you make a reservation the patios are on a first come/first served basis. We arrived at 3:45pm prior to the 4pm opening and there were 6 people lined up so you need to get there early! The food was good. Service was great. View is spectacular of the new Dublin bridge. Outdoor tables on the uncovered patio seat 6 easily and have a built in tabletop fireplace.

We celebrated our anniversary at The Pearl last night and both said it was one of our best! The restaurant is beautifully laid out - we sat in an inside booth with a view of the bridge and the river. I ordered the bourbon cocktail with candied bacon which was delicious and we started with a dozen fresh oysters on the half shell. The special was a striped bass - beatifully cooked and presented. My husband had the Arctic char - which is a consistent menu item for The Pearl and equally delicious. We had to have pie for dessert and chose the brown sugar and the Mississippi Mud pies - wow! The service was terrific - Austin was friendly attentive and made the experience complete. Highly recommend for any special occasion or just because.

The brunch was amazing. Our waiter was tremendous and so energetic and fun. We had a high top table in a small room that looked out onto the street which was fun to people watch from. Great overall experience.

I took my wife here for a date night on a Saturday. We had 8pm reservation and seated upon arrival. Server was very nice but the service was ridiculously slow. Drinks took 15 minutes, food took an hour then they brought me the wrong dish. My biggest issue though is the value at the Pearl. No bread service. We ordered colossal blue crab appetizer and it comes out with 2 packs of saltine crackers. Cost $21. It gets better. Watered down Manhattan cocktail full of ice in 6oz glass. Cost $12. Gets even better. Ordered a draft filled about 3/4 full of Sierra Nevada Hazy Ipa. Cost...$10. YES $10 FOR A DRAFT OF SIERRA NEVADA. I asked the server if it was a typo and she looked confused. Guess I should have got the CBC IPA for $7. Money aside, there is just no value in this restaurant other than location. Food was ok but if you want to come away unsatisfied for spending $120-150 on two people with no dessert and dinner taking 2 hours than this is your place. We are one and done.

Food was amazing..service lacked! Nice waiter, but basically ignored us.
Also added 2 extra items to our bill, one being an expensive mimosa kit, which we didn’t order. The other was a pie he offered to take care of because of our wedding anniversary. Both charges were taken care of..but shows you how little he interacted with us.
We did have hair in our food but the very nice manager offered to comp it, which wasn’t necessary, but appreciated.
Although service wasn’t the best, we loved the shrimp and grits and devil on horseback soooo much!!

They oysters were outstanding. Seafood salad was very disappointing and i had heard good things about the burgers but mine was not good. We'll give it another try but first experience not great in terms of the meal. Service was great.

We went to the Pearl this past Wednesday. It was restaurant week as well as happy hour.

Rather than solely promoting the restaurant week menu, our wonderful waitress told us about all of the happy hour specials and her recommended menu items.

She was absolutely wonderful (nice red headed girl).


Our food was fantastic.

Between my husband and myself, we shared the smoked salmon and deviled egg appetizers- both the best of those items that we have ever had in a restaurant.

He had the spare ribs for dinner, which were fall-off-the-bone tender. I had the harbor salad, which was loaded with fresh seafood.

A perfect evening out.

Food at all Cameron Mitchell restaurants is consistently good and the Pearl is no exception. Neat decor, good service and our out of town guest was duly impressed with the place. Would definitely go again. Parking at this location can be somewhat of a challenge.

This was our first time on the “back” patio, what a gorgeous seating area! Our food and drinks were very good. Chris, our waiter, was exceptional. My other concern is that I wish you’d take reservations for seating on the two patios. We’ll be back soon!

We were glad to get a lovely outside table, after months of avoiding restaurants (except for take-out). Our waiter, Jon, was delightful and helpful. Our meals were excellent (baked oysters, salad, striped bass, Piri Piri pork, then brown sugar pie.) This was a birthday celebration, and it was truly special.

We love the Pearl in the short north, this was our first visit to their Dublin location. We were celebrating my birthday and our server Chris was very attentive and friendly and made our experience very nice! The food and cocktails were awesome as usual and we sat in the back room overlooking the new walking bridge and it was lovely. The complimentary dessert for my birthday was very nice as well. Overall, a wonderful experience, especially during these challenging times!
