“Crowded, fast moving table service, food pretty good.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Sea food mixed grill was good and my wife liked the baked oyster Rockefeller.
This is a very high noise, fast paced place with a communal table at the center, a long bar and booths on the side. Mixed drinks tend to be light on alcohol and heavy on mixers. Service at the booths was fast paced to move as many folks through as possible.

Unbelievable happy hour apps. Can fill up on those alone. But don't, the menu is fantastic also. We make sure to stop here whenever we are in Charleston.

“My Taste Buds Thank You”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

I have eaten at Pearlz on a number of occasions and have always had an excellent culinary experience. I have been converted to eating fish by Chef Victoria. I have never liked fish until I tried hers. My taste buds were dancing in my mouth and I find myself craving her food at least once a month. The service and food are always outstanding and I have recommended the restaurant to numerous friends. I am a huge fan!!!

“So cosy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

It really has a cosy interior, I bet a quicker service too. We had a nice dinner as a family and enjoyed the food thoroughly. Charm of Charleston, eating on the pavement is a must if you are around, worth the try...
