A Jewel Long in the Making. And well worth the wait. Cameron Mitchell’s, The Pearl, is a well-polished culinary jewel that showcases made-from-scratch food, classically inspired cocktails and an exclusive selection of Ales, Lagers & Stouts. All within one urban and cozy tavern. White exposed brick, original hard wood floors, over-sized iron beams and windows that open to High Street complete this unique gastropub, located in the Short North Arts District.
Please excuse the construction debris. Our Valet Service is still available during normal hours and the garage behind us on West Russell is also open for business as usual. The City of Columbus is beautifying the Short North and construction is a bit of a mess out front. Thank you for your understanding.

The meal was very good. Delicious blends of flavors and such unique, creative entrees. The service was top notch. We never felt neglected. The ambiance was pretty good. The lighting was very good in a romantic way, but we were somewhat stuffed into a small back corner that was a little uncomfortable. The value was good. Really good food, though portion sizes on some of the meals were ok for the cost, but that is what you will get with a higher end restaurant. Overall a great experience!

Fired chicken, shrimp and grits, beet salad, and smoked salmon were all fantastic. Service was great, too. We'll be back. Only complaint - the tables are way too close.

Cameron Mitchell restaurants have a stellar reputation in the Columbus area for a reason, and the Pearl is no exception. Some of the best food in Columbus with a fun environment that is really hard to beat. Sit near the bar or the kitchen for a more energized experience, or ask for a seat in the back for a larger group or for a more relaxed, conversational spot. A Columbus gem!

We came in from out of town for a conference and were told this was the place to go. It did not disappoint. Amazing food and high end cocktails...our group was very happy with our decision to come to this restaurant. We will be dining again in the fall for our next conference in town!

The Pearl is extremely inviting with a sort of candlelit mood. The food is amazing, try the Parmesan baked clams! Great drinks and the service is incredible. Really cool unique decor as well. We went for brunch and everything we had was out of the park and I will definitely be visiting again.

I had high hopes. My friend ordered the hanger steak. It was was covered in sriracha, but menu said nothing about it being spicy. I can handle hot food, was almost not edible.
I had the mahi mahi...nothing special. Both dishes were meat and rice, I could have cooked at home. Cornbread & Boston cream pie was good. They have great drinks, but that's all I will go back for. Sorry....

Although the food was served cold, we are willing to give this another chance. Hanger steak was flavorful but very fatty. Strip steak also served cold with not much flavor. Sea food, however, was spectacular. Best part was you can pick and choose the seafood. I would like to see better and/or more salad choices as a side of salad and bucket of shrimp would be perfect.

Another great experience at The Pearl. I appreciated that the hostess considered my request for a table at the front. We had a high table in front by the window and it was perfect. The server forgot to put in one of our apps before happy hour ended. He apologized and gave it to us on the house. The exceptional staff made this experience really positive.

My fiance and I dined at The Pearl for my birthday dinner. The server, Matthew, was phenomenal. He gave great recommendations and had a wonderful sense of humor. We dine here every few months and the fried chicken NEVER disappoints. Their Coconut Cream Pie was to die for. Fingers crossed that it is on special the next time we go🤞🏼🤤

Online reviews helped lead us to The Pearl during our recent mini-vacation to Columbus. We were thoroughly pleased. Our server, Allie, was exceptional. Though it was very busy, the food came out quickly. We had the confit wings, the clam chowder, the fish and chips, the shrimp and grits, and the pot roast (kid's menu), and would recommend each. The wings came with this well-put-together hot sauce. My wife also raved about her gin cocktail. Would definitely eat there again.

While in town for the NCAA Women’s Final Four, someone who travels to Columbus often highly recommended The Pearl. The food was excellent. I had the shrimp & grits. I was raised in New Orleans and travel to Savannah a lot so the shrimp & grits were a bit too soupy for my taste, but nevertheless still good.

The corn bread was to die for and I could have made a meal of just corn bread, an appetizer and drinks. This is an excellent choice!

We were seeking a restaurant for Easter brunch within walking distance of Nationwide Arena. The Pearl looked like it would fit the bill and the ratings looked good. They did not disappoint. Our experience and meal lived up to our expectations and then some. The restaurant has a neat vibe and look. The service was great! The food, oh my! We started off with the jalapeño corn bread and bacon wrapped dates. Wow!!!! Everything tasted wonderful and even though they were very busy, we were not rushed through our meal. Will go back if ever in the Columbus area again!

We had two reservations for a total of 7, stopped day before to ask to have our tables together if at all possible. Said most likely not, so we said ok. When we arrived Sunday they said we think we can make it work! It was Easter, so we know it was busy. It was fabulous service, decor is great including the women’s bathroom! Our food was out of this world! Home made tater tots, OMG! The Jalapeño Corn Bread with Maple Butter to die for! Everyone said the same thing about their food and we all got something different! The only ask I would have it to have a vegan option (my 21yr old), but we made it work!
Please open one in Philly, it can’t go wrong!!
