Where to even start? From the moment we walked in the the moment we walked out, we laughed and had a thoroughly enjoyable time.

Ben, the manager and Kirby, our server, treated us so well and we loved the most delicious food and drinks. We would highly recommend coming here and asking for the two of them.

The Pearl has made the list for one of our favorite new places, sad part is we live in Indianapolis and were there celebrating my brother’s birthday. Our waiter, Kirby, was amazing! He not only knew the menu, what every dish was like, he made our evening one we will all remember! The food, I recommend the short ribs, was delicious! We will definitely put going to The Pearl on our list when we head to Columbus!

We had the most delicious dinner to celebrate my birthday. I loved my pub burger and devils on horseback. So good! The brown sugar pie was ridiculously delicious. I asked for a boozy milkshake, which wasn’t on the menu, and they whipped up something wonderful!

Fun place to enjoy a much needed night out with my husband and teen daughter . The service was good, and the ambiance hip , the drinks paired nicely with the meals. We had the shell fish tower, fish & chips, wings confit , devils on horseback and the cuban. For dessert we went with the brown butter pie to go (amazing!) Needless to say we had a nice take home bag! Portions were large and tasty! Next time we may just go with the shellfish tower and drinks 😊. We also, used the valet service in front of Marcellas , worth the $10, convenient, and car well cared for.

I loved dining at The Pearl. It has a great atmosphere, the service is very friendly and efficient, and the menu has a lot of interesting choices. We shared the deviled eggs and devils on horseback as appetizers - both were delicious. For our mains, had the fish special which was rainbow trout and the pub burger - again both delicious. I highly recommend The Pearl and look forward to dining there again.

Pearl is excellent. It's always excellent, whether we go for dinner or brunch, we are always happy. The service, food, and cocktails are great. It was nice having the ability to make reservations for brunch, we were seated immediately on a very busy Sunday.

Made a reservation a while ago for Valentine’s Day for 8:30. Arrived on time and was told they were waiting for tables to clear but wasn’t given a time frame of any sort. Sat at the bar for 20 minutes and finally got sat. I figured for our wait they would comp a drink or provide a free dessert but other than that dinner was still good. It was a bit chilly in the back so I just left my coat on. The food was great and the server was nice and attentive especially since it was so busy there. Would still go back just maybe not on a holiday.

Excellent food and service. The oysters both half shell and baked were great. Shrimp and grits were fantastic. And don't forget the cornbread as a starter.

We made a reservation and had to wait slightly longer than expected to be seated and for a waiter, but they brought us an appetizer to make up for the wait, which was amazing (the food and the gesture). The waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful with the menu. We got the roasted chicken and the short ribs. Both were amazing. Perfect dinners. The brown sugar pie dessert was also one of the best desserts I’ve ever had. Overall it was spot on and I will definitely be coming back.

The Pearl is great: service, food, and atmosphere are always top-quality. I brought my elementary-aged daughter for a father-daughter date, and we had a great time. My only complaint about this restaurant is that the tables in some areas are too close together.

Missed the mark, mostly because people working behind bar weren’t helpful and acted like the customers were a burden. Then I couldn’t use a $25 bonus holiday card because they said we couldn’t use it during Happy Hour, even though it doesn’t say anything on the card about that being a restriction. Normally Cameron Mitchell restaurants are much more accommodating.

We enjoyed clam chowder with jalopeno cornbread - delicious. Arctic char was amazing and loved the pork piri piri. Devon was a great server too, always a plus to the dining experience.
