Everything you could want in a country store.

Like I can fill up my gas tank and get some BBQ to go. Friendly staff, lots of tables from picnic to inside.

The gas station ambiance was fun and the food was just fine for a simple breakfast, with big servings. One caveat to vegetarians, or others with healthy eating habits, everything was cooked in bacon grease. But considering that nothing else is open around Micanopy that time of morning, it's better than driving around in Gainesville traffic looking for a busy... More

Pearl used to be one of our favorite places to eat. We used to look forward to staying at Paynes Prairie to get take out from Pearl, especially on Friday nights when they have the catfish filets. Used to get 2 nice thick filets, hush puppies and choices of side for $7.95. The price is the same but the fish... More

We were looking for something different and we found it. Staff was great and food was delicious! We had pork sandwiches, chicken, mac and cheese and baked beans. All were wonderful! Husband and son loved their chocolate peanut butter pie too!! Will stop again if in the area!!

My husand and I have been to Pearls Country Store 2 times. They have really good BBQ but definitely lack in the customer service department! The girls that take your order make you feel like your a bother to them. Their sides are average but their sweet potato fries always taste like they have been fried in very old oil!... More

In this store I found nice and unusual gifts (such as alligator and palm tree and many other shapes of cookie cutters.) My daughter found unusual old-fashioned candy, and my husband found nice books about local history, flora, and fauna. They serve BBQ and provide nice seating so you can enjoy your food in this attractive place.

The brisket did...it made me smile... The Pearl Country Store is a gas station/mini-mart on the main highway that runs through Micanopy. In truth, it looks pretty dumpy. Ignore the dumpiness as you enter and proceed to the back. I've been here enough to know that I'm not going to be order sides or, for that matter, anything other than... More

Friendly people. Great chicken salad--their specialty. Yummy ice cream. Even the iced tea was the best.

We went there twice. Although they had tables, we decided to do take out. The costumers when we were there were a very mixed lot: northern tourists, locals, well off and not so well off. Everyone seemed pleasant and happy to be there. Each time the food was good. I liked the pork BBQ and the fried okra. My wife... More

This sounded like a 'good country restaurant' to us, so we drove some extra distance to give it a try. We were somewhat disappointed to find it was some awkwardly placed seating in the middle of a little gas station / store. It had passable food, but no real atmosphere. Pretty much a grab-a-bite-and-go kinda set-up.
