“Great Oysters, Excellent Fresh Catch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Highly recommend getting the fresh catch at Pearlz. I've always felt like it was worth every penny spent. Their oysters are wonderful (goes without saying) and the atmosphere is generally vibrant and fun. It can be hard to hear on a really busy night, but I've never felt like it created a negative experience. The service is always top-notch, even when the restaurant is very busy.

“Great food/great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Oysters, Gumbo, Scallops & Swordfish were delicious. When we ordered our entrees we mentioned to the server that one of our party had a nut allergy. The manager came to the table to explain the precautions they would take in the kitchen. We all enjoyed a wonderful dinner and appreciated the attentive service.

“Dive in to find your "Pearl"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Fantastic place to enjoy oysters or anything regarding their selection of seafood. We got to Charleston late and decided we wanted something in the historic district that got good TA ratings. This place lived up to all the "fives" and didn't see any downsides. Started with oysters (obviously) and found the selection of James River oysters to be some of the freshest tastiest, perfect sized oysters I've ever eaten. Couldn't stop there so ordered the fried oyster/shrimp entre which was delightful. Can't go wrong and suggest sitting at the "community" tables and I'm sure you'll meet interesting folks like we did. Fun, lively place with great service! Don't miss the Happy Hour....great prices.

“Very tasty seafood and great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

My parents have been asking me to take them to a good seafood restaurant... and I found it here! Every time I stop in Pearlz it is a must to start with an oyster shooter! We started with trying a cup of the gumbo which is some of the best tasting gumbo I have ever tasted and I use to live in Louisiana! My mom had the special of the mussels, my dad had oyster sliders and I had the lobster roll. I was lucky enough to try each dish and they were all amazing! What a wonderful find and we didn't even need to go all the way into downtown Charleston to find it. Keep up the great work!
