Picturesque place but very small. I'm not sure this is a good venue for music which is why we went. Cant rate the service because we didn't get any!

Reuben makes probably the best margarita I've ever had and has a personality that makes even first time visitors feel like long time regulars. Live music completes the ambiance. I highly recommend the Pearl.
