It's a tradition with my wife and I. We love coming to aa and eating, drinking and walking around. We always start at the black pearl. Top shelf martinis are the best. We get fish tacos every time, they are wonderful. I've never actually ordered dinner but I'm sure i wouldn't be disappointed. Ask for Jen she's the best!

Their fish tacos are to die for but the coffee encrusted steak makes you weep. The martini selection is award winning but the Traci E is like a dessert. There is no bad choice! I've been there over a dozen times and can't get enough.

We have always had excellent food at the Black Pearl. We typically They also have a really good drink menu. The atmosphere is trendy inside and the bar area is busy.

A small gem in Ann Arbor for sure. They have a separate Happy hour menu which is great. I love fried clams and these were very good! The fried pickles were tangy with a nice light batter. Our cocktails were tasty and the atmosphere was buzzing and pleasant. I had a St. Gin which was delicious...I have been before for... More

Been many times, food & cocktails have always been top-notch and service has always been very good. It's a great place for summer & winter, we always sit outside during summer though as they have the a/c on full blast inside (which I know for some is a real plus!) inside has a nice luxurious atmosphere about it. It's a... More

Some of the best fish tacos in town, and a great cocktail menu. They just stopped doing live music, which is disappointing.

We went to the black pearl and had a nice dinner. We asked for a split check and everyone got charged for the full check plus their portion. The charges were exponential as you can imagine. Multiple calls to their management. They are SO busy and will follow up tomorrow ... Have to get their accountant involved ... Lots of... More

I live in Ann Arbor and have been to at least 90% of the restaurants here. Ann Arbor is a community of restaurants with a city around them (and a university too)! Seriously... a ton of restaurants. I just ate at Black Pearl for the first time and was blown away by how great it was. The service was excellent... More
