“Very good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2009

We visited Pearl's in May 2009. My spouse had crawfish risotto. I had walleye. Both were very good. The risotto was very creamy and delicious.

“Consistently good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2009

We go to Pearl's whenever we are in town. The food is always good, no matter what is ordered. We've tried everything on the menu and many of the specials. There are many items on the menu that are not spicy cajun. My dad doesn't like spicy or cajun food, but he loves many of the menu items are Pearl's, expecially the brisket.
If you want to try it without the wait, lunch is a good time to go. Their Sunday brunch is awesome, too.

“I may have a new favorite restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2008

We enjoyed a great meal at Pearl's on Sunday night. Our server was absolutely delightful and made us feel like we were dining at an old friend's house. The red bean cake appetizers were delicious, the margaritas were among the best we've had, and the beer sampler is a great value. The entrees are spicy and flavorful, and the portion sizes are generous but not overwhelming. My husband had the brisket and I had the etouffee, and we highly recommend both of them. It was not terribly busy when we were there but I'll bet this place is a lot of fun on a summer Saturday night. We will definitely be back to try more great Cajun food at Pearl's.
