Good fresh food, long wait

We went here after driving by all the time on our way to Woodman's, and had a Groupon. Reservations are encouraged by them. The place was about half way full when we arrived at 530 on a Saturday night. We started with the buffalo shrimp appetizer. This cost about $12. There are 10 shrimps, ranch... read more

Stopped at this place on way through. Rick, the owner we found out, greeted us at the door and showed us to a gorgeous marble table. Mark, the server, came over quickly and was very chatty and highly knowledgeable of the menu. We ordered, asked some questions about the place and were treated like family. The owners daughter, who was... More

Right when I entered I was greeted by smiling faces. The atmosphere was very relaxing and friendly. Whether you have an appetite for a burger, fire grilled pizza, or steak the flavors are incredible. There is very cool artwork created by his daughter Kylie Lewis. I really enjoyed my relaxing evening at Pearl Bistro. - Julie Asprooth

Went there twice on this trip. Normally I find full USA meal too much so I just had excellent starter of Tiger Prawns with bread freshly cooked and a desert. Both excellent with good friendly service. Riesling wine to die for both on taste and temperature. Could have stayed there all night drinking it. Top tip. Just go there!!!!

This was our first visit to Pearl Bistro. We were greeted at the door by the owner and had our choice of seats. Our waitress Stephanie promptly and friendly waited on us. We ordered a bottle of champagne and perused the menu. We were never rushed. The food was excellent and hot when served. The owner stated he had purchased... More

We invited guests for New Year's eve dinner and decided to go to Pearl. We made a reservation and our table was ready when we arrived. Unfortunately, that was the last positive impression. The service was absolutely terrible, had to request settings on the table & water, long waits to place and receive drink orders and our waitress disappeared after... More

Recently had dinner there with my wife. Hadn't been in years. Our waitress was very good. The food was not. Appetizer (spinach appetizer dish) was average at best. Entree's were also average. Restaurant was not that busy and it took 30 minutes for them to deliver the special of the evening and my wife's entree. Quite a dissappointment vs. previous... More

We were a party of eight arriving just after the lunch hour. Started with the Blue Moon tortilla appetizer. Great! Each one of us ordered something different and all were happy with their choice. Soup is also great. Staff members are eager to please. We all agreed to return in the future. Hidden gem.

My spouse and I have been regulars at Pearl for a couple of years now. Thanks to their pizza guy the food has been great each and every time. Not sure if he left along with all the others that have been leaving, but the food was terrible. Will not return for a while

Within the past 6 months, Pearl changed its menu and is now more Mediterranean. The pesto ravioli is particularly good paired with the white wine sauce rather than the red sauce on the menu. Everything we've tried is good - pizza, burger, soups, salad, appetizers. The servings are generously sized. Mark is a fantastic server! He goes out of his... More
