Excellent as always!
2 of 3 meals were very, very good. One was disappointing. Overall, a great dining experience, although the Pearl is no longer an inexpensive restaurant..........gotten a little pricey.
The mussels are great. Also the shrimp and crab picatta. Was a little noisy. Piano player was good and a nice addition. Prices were a little high, but the food was excellent.
We’ve eaten at Pearl many times and have tried many dishes. The food is always great and the people there are fantastic. Well worth the money.
Very nice restaurant located in the heart of Old Town, Bluffton, SC.
Great menu options.
Friendly and informed staff.
Food was excellent.
Another great restaurant by Earl Nightingale !
Our server Eric was so great and fun! Really enjoyed the ahi poke appetizer and the Banana bread pudding was phenomenal!! This was a great spot for a casual evening-especially with the great weather and great music!
Had a great Anniversary dinner at The Pearl. I had the scallops ( fantastic) and husband had the Shrimp and Grits. He also enjoyed his meal. Service was a little slow, but nothing that would ruin the evening. We sat outside and had a wonderful time.
Great atmosphere, food, and service. Our drinks were very good also. We will definitely be back.
Excellent restaurant! The food and service were fantastic.
Waiter was wearing face mask with nose not covered, and patrons were allowed to enter inside without masks, despite a sign posting requiring masks inside. Both of these made us feel somewhat uncomfortable. This should be strictly enforced by the restaurants management. Especially the restaurant staff. This may prevent us from returning.
Wonderful food and service. The best grits in town! Can’t wait to go back!
we ate outside on the patio - very nice evening with friends. Our server was extraordinarily pleasant!
Great food in a great setting! Filet’s were some of the best we ever had and Cloe’s service was top shelf.
The Pearl is a Gem. I live in Bluffton and it is my favorite spot - the food selections are solid and the taste and creativity of every single dish is superb. The waitstaff is to be commended as they are all always positive, professional and efficient. This is not a place where one will wait forever or ever get a bad meal. frank farese
The calamari starter and my husband's red fish were amazing but I was really disappointed with my Wasabi Tuna entree. It needed a lot more spice and the soba noodles were drowning in the very salty sauce served with this item. I probably should have sent it back and ordered another entree but in these very hard times, I know all businesses (especially restaurants) are striving to stay open and viable.
We were unable to be seated at the bar, which I had requested in my reservation. We were told when we walked in that they didn’t see my request. We dined early and our food was delicious. We indulged in the Strawberry Cake and it didn’t disappoint! I would definitely recommend the Grouper.
Brought our daughter & her boyfriend for dinner! They loved it as well! Fried green tomatoes are amazing!
Our first time dining at The Pearl! Had heard so many great things about the restaurant and we were not disappointed! Everything was fabulous!
Always a pleasure to have dinner at The Pearl! Never disappointed!😊
Our favorite dinner restaurant in Bluffton. Outdoor seating is safe, staff is safe, food great, wine list not over priced. Since March, and shutdown, we’ve been out to dinner three times, twice at the Pearl.
First visit to The Pearl, and we will definitely be back. There were four of us and we each ordered something different, everyone loved their food. The Grouper Casino was outstanding. The server was very knowledgeable and helpful.
No sand here, this Pearl is fully formed, we found a gem.
Overall it was good but the bathroom was dirty, no soap to wash your hands. Will not return!
The service was great and the food was amazing. I made a reservation for outside, but when we got there it was really hot. The host was very accommodating moving us inside. The crab and shrimp piccata was fantastic and the peach-banana bread pudding with candied bacon on top was next level!!! Sooooo good. Nice, clean atmosphere. I definitely recommend this place for a nice dinner out.
Loved our first experience. Will certainly be back. Food was spectacular!
We always enjoy this restaurant and the last evening was better than ever...terrific food, ambiance and service. Highly recommend!
This was one of the best meals we have had in the Hilton Head area! Outstanding food, service and atmosphere...
Fantastic meal along w stellar service! The calamari appetizer is a must.
We booked inside and were placed outside as we booked ‘online’ though this website. The greeter wasn’t friendly and wasn’t really helpful when we asked if there was a table available. We then ordered our appetizers and entree. Our bread was delivered after our appetizers and when we received our entree they forgot our cutlery. We asked a server for cutlery, but it took about 5 minutes so we decided to walk in and request cutlery. My food was pretty cold once they finally brought cutlery. The manager did apologize and comped our wine. The sever was nice but maybe they were understaffed? For the price you pay, the service wasn’t what I would expect.
We had a great time! Our server was excellent and the food was delicious!!
This was our first time eating here! Our food was amazing! Loved the fried green tomatoes!
The Pearl is a lovely small venue in Old Town Bluffton. I had a great experience with my meal and service. I was seated at the back of the outside area near a service porch. My only problem was with flies. The Flies were so bad that I could barely enjoy my meal for swatting them away from food and drink. I think some fans would have helped and I don't know if the trash was in the service porch I was close to or why the Flies were so bad but that is the only reason I did not give a 5-star rating across the board.
Enjoyed our evening- great service...spacing between tables was ok- not 6’ but not bad...serves did wear masks which we appreciated
We ab try ally had reservations for somewhere else but ended up coming here and trying it ! I’m so glad we did! The food first off was all super delicious! I had the seafood piccata and my husband got the redfish! We enjoyed both! We also got dessert and drinks! Our server was wonderful! Overall was a 10/10! Can’t wait to go back
Fantastic! Fried green tomatoes are incredible and their seafood is amazing.
The Pearl is a good restaurant. The food is very good and its a nice setting. It’s just that it never seems to have very good timing on the food service. Slow at times. We waited at least 10 minutes for drinks and then 30 minutes for our entrees. The service is ok but not exceptional. It’s happened before at the Pearl. We keep going back in hopes of quicker timing because it is a nice restaurant with very good food and drinks.
Awesome! Really great food and wine
We’ve dined at the Pearl several times over the years and the food is excellent. Service a tad slow this time but it matters not. It was great to eat out and have a great meal. Highly recommend it.
Outstanding food service was the best.
The Pearl was a delicious and local place for us to safely celebrate our anniversary. Servers all wore masks and tables were safely separated from each other. We were seated at our table and champagne was immediately served to help us celebrate our special day! After that all was delightful from the salad and bread to our entrees. My Scottish salmon was tender and flavorful,but for me, the highlight was the fingerling potato dish. I am not usually wowed by the sides, but this is worth going back for in its own right! We will be back often, and not just for our anniversary!
The Pearl is always a welcoming place. The music by Reid is soft and soothing as you eat. Just nice background music so you can talk. The food is superb and the staff is friendly and knowledgable.
