EVERYTHING was excellent! Food top notch; service great! The dirty martini's were perfection at its best! Would HIGHLY recommend! Nice outdoor dining but on the sidewalk if you like pedestrians looking at your food with cigarette smoke & ashes falling into it. Recommend eating inside. Great atmosphere inside! WILL RETURN!

A really great dining experience. I was a bit surprised, as we had not dined there, due to a few friends not recommending, however glad we finally tried it. The atmosphere is of course wonderful.

We started at Black Pearl for apps and drinks and in all honesty wish we had stayed there for the entire evening. We went to another place for dinner and it was very disappointing.

Enjoyed the fish tacos, plate comes with 3 tacos only, well worth every bite and a large portion to eat. The grapefruittini was phenominal!

I loved the interior of this place as it's not your usual look. At least not for A2. I've been here several times for parties and the drinks and food are very good. Prices are bit up there especially for the drinks.

Menu is good and the drinks are great, but would defiantly return there any day for their delicious fish tacos! Very generous portions. Delicious and they had outside seating so perfect for the good weather!

Very nice place right downtown with seating right on Main Street. We had amazing fish tacos and for dessert bread pudding. The bread pudding was the best I've ever had. Note that if you are a fan of fish tacos the entree is available as a happy hour appetizer every day during happy hour.
