“Great place to eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Pearl's is a New Orleans style restaurant, mostly cajun food. My favorite appetizer is "blackened alligator", but the whole menu is delicious. I don't drink, but I'm told that the drinks are sensational too.

“Lives up to reviews”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Stopped in after checking trip advisor for resteraunts in the area and reading the reviews.

Sat at the bar which was nicely don't and clean. Had their signature Bloody Mary which was fantastic.
Followed it up with chowder and their jambalaya both which were great.

The staff and locals eating there made me feel right at home. I highly recommend!

“Great Atmosphere, Great Service and Great Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Though it's off the beaten path for Traverse City, it is worth the drive. We were unsure when we arrived because the outside bar/waiting area was jam packed but we figured that must be a good sign fo rthe food. We went into the hour and 15 minute wait with dread and hunger but found 2 seats at the bar, a lively bartender and a couple Hurricanes later we were happy to wait!

The restaurant is loud, and packed with people but its has a fun vibe that makes you want to join the noise. The service was wonderful, attentive and accommodating and the food was authentic and delicious! Its not a fancy place, its a "family"spot thats worth the time.
