Loud, good food, casual

Above average fare, great location, super service, and generally pretty noisy. Fried seafood is superb - light batter, not greasy.

This was a new restaurant for us to dine in downtown Wellfleet harbor. The restaurant had live blues/jazz band playing on a Saturday afternoon. The specials that day was $12 lobsters and discounted freshly shucked oysters,and clams. The music was great, the service was great and the food was excellent. We will definitely be back there this week with friends... More

Going to Pearl has become a Memorial Day Weekend tradition and an awesome way to kick off Summer. We are never disappointed. This year our table had 2 orders of the Cajun oyster P'boy, tuna sashimi, and lobster quesadilla. We were all thrilled. The P'boys came with homemade potato chips that are crispy & very tasty--not at all greasy. My... More

Service was good. But meal was just mediocre. I had steak. There was nothing wrong with it but nothing to brag about. The rice was mushy. My husband had the fish tacos and they were "wet". Maybe from rinsing the lettuce. Not much flavor, his are better

The Pearl is a great place for dinner with family and friends; beautiful location, in a fun and casual setting...The Sashimi Tuna is perfect every time! Fish Tacos and Wellfleet Oysters are other favorite entrees. The owners are very attentive and the service is great.

Our family always enjoys our visits to Pearl. Nice seaside atmosphere with cozy feeling inside. Menu is varied with reasonably prices and wine selection is excellent. Service is top notch and meals are served quickly. Have a seat at the porch bar and enjoy the beautiful marsh view. Best restaurant in Welfleet.

I've been to all the restaurants in Wellfleet, and Pearl is one I go to with a large group or family. They have big windows that look over the marsh, and a large menu, including fresh and fried seafood and good but standard salads. The food is good enough but nothing super special, although I like the fish tacos with... More

This restaurant has a great location on the waterfront. Went for lunch after a hike. The special was a lobster cake. I had that plus some clam chowder. The cake was greasy, fell apart, mostly crumbs and maybe two pieces of lobster. Very disappointing. The chowder, however, was good.

Four of us for dinner this past Friday and our meals were fantastic! Our server was very friendly, attentive and gave us some great recommendations. Tuna sushima was out of this world good! Nachos were excellent. Swordfish was the best we've ever had. Steaks were excellent cuts, cooked and seasoned perfectly. Only two of us decided to get dessert and... More

We were staying in Wellfleet and headed to another popular restaurant for lunch. It was closed and we ended up at Pearl. So glad we did--we went back again later in the week. The food was fresh, delicious and unpretentious. I had the lobster, brie and spinach quesadilla and my husband had the lobster roll. Other family members had the... More
