Sunday brunch at The Pearl is one of my favorite meals. The pancakes are succulent and the best in town.

My husband and I tried The Pearl based off of reviews we had read and were not disappointed. The dining room is lively yet cozy. A mix of upscale and approachable decor. Service was prompt and included a clearing of every dish and piece of flatware in between courses. We started with the Devils on horseback and cornbread - both great, but the devils on horseback are a must try. I had the short rib and my husband the hanger steak. Beer list was inclusive with a decent wine list as well. Finished off the meal with a piece of pie to go. We will be back!

Had a fabulous meal here. We expecially loved the appetizers. The braised beef rib is stellar. The place music is quite loud so it can be a challenge to chat much. Lots of energy here. Expensive, but really good food.

Had a great date night with my husband before a blue jackets game. We loved the clams, clam chowder, and fish and chips. Little disappointed with the shrimp and grits but overall had a great experience and great food.

It took a little while to be seated, despite my reservation. But once we were seated everything was great. Loved the tots, pickles (fried) and that sticky bun that came with the fried chicken plate was to die for!! Excellent service, even though our waitress seemed a little agitated when my friends asked her to split my bill between them. But overall, it was a great experience. Nice ambiance, great food! I will absolutely be returning. Oh, and the complimentary birthday dessert was great as well!

Service was outstanding as were the beer and wine selections (chosen by our server). Food choices and combination are delicious. Only downside is all good choices are very high in sodium.

The food is the centerpiece. The menu is wide-ranging. The appetizers are varied, and you can make a meal out of them. The dinner selections are at a range of price points and types, but all are exceptionally well prepared. If you like a nice portion that tastes delicious, this is the right restaurant. The service has always been prompt and attentive. We ordered an item prepared different from the menu, and the answer was yes, and the preparation was spot-on. It is a noisy, high energy space, and is great for people watching. Highly recommended.

We had reservations for dinner on Friday. There was a bit of a delay in getting the table, but it wasn't too bad. The front of the restaurant was quite cramped, but for good reason. People want a good meal. Once we got past the waiting and past the crowd to our table, it was a great experience. It was much more quiet in the back of the restaurant, and our server was great (wish I could remember her name). The drinks came quickly and were delicious. My date had the southern fried chicken entree, and I stole half of his sticky bun, because it was that good. I ordered the Ricotta Dumplings. I was a bit surprised at how small the dish was, but it was surprisingly filling. Overall, it was a great experience, and we will be back.

We were sat 45 MINUTES LATE for a reservation that was supposed to be at 545....how are you that far behind before it's even 600? Needed to leave by 715 to make it to the symphony on time so we had to inhale dinner and rush out the door. Appears we weren't the only ones affected since their anemic waiting area was stuffed with other people being hopelessly delayed from their reserved time as well. The food is good, the waitress was kind and we tipped her well but it's very poor management of your restaurant when you have multiple tables waiting 45 minutes past their reserved time. In a town where there are so many fantastic options to spend your time and money, why go somewhere that doesn't value yours? Never going back, used to be one of our favorites.

My party had a great time @ The Pearl it was everyone's first time dining there prior to seeing Janet Jackson , we had limited time so we just had appetizers & cocktails, our cocktails were delicious as well as the smoked salmon but our wings were not the best they tasted of pre frozen & didn't have any flavor @ all & our waiters kept forgetting special requests but were very nice & attentive, but we all did agree we would come back for the full experience of an entree (steak) lol. Thank You!

I was very unimpressed with the restaurant and the food. Ordered the jalapeño corn spoon bread as a starter. While it had a nice flavor you would never know it had jalapeno's in it. So if you go and want/expect jalapeño flavor - pass. Did not order oysters and maybe that is what you need to order from this restaurant.

My Husband and I went to The Pearl with another couple before going to see The Christmas Carol. We have never been there so we were anxious to try it. Unfortunately we were all very disappointed in the whole experience. It was very loud. People were talking very loud in order to be heard which made it very loud in the resturant. The seating was tight and the food was not good. We won't be going back.
