“Expensive Christmas Buffet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

This was my second time dining here and my first Christmas Buffet. We found out that Miss Pearl's is closing and I can't say that I'm terribly sad. The buffet was ridiculously expensive and on top automatically added an 18% gratituty. Pretty extravagent considering we waited on ourselves. Mediocre buffet food. Didn't serve all the advertised desserts. The best thing was the Bloody Mary that was included in the price.
The keyboard player was a nice touch until the rest of the band showed up and it became more of a floor show. Music was so loud, conversation was next to impossible.

“The Bay Area's Big Easy...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Fantastic Happy Hour with festive Mardi Gras theme. Excellent cocktails with knowledgeable bar staff. Dinner was as presented. Hearty southern cuisine straight from the French Quarter of New Orleans. An oyster bar would make us frequent visitors at Miss Pearl's.

We had a ball as rookies visiting this popular night spot in Jack London Square! The title line for this review says it all! We will absolutely be making this a regular stop during our Bay area trips!

“Fun and good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012 via mobile

Great place! Bar area had a fun jazz band, outdoor fireplace, right on the bay with exceptional view, lots of outdoor seating and good wine at reasonable prices.
The tuna tartar appetizer was very good and nice presentation, with avocado.
For dinner we had the fabulous clam chowder, a good spinach and arugula salad, but the best was the fish of the night, swordfish, on vegetables with a light chili pesto sauce. Very generous portion, great taste, perfectly done!
