The Black Pearl seems to have closed, like so many hard-working, struggling joints. Gone to restaurant heaven. Closed, poof. Maybe one Day I will be near them again.....

Service was ok. Food was not good. The bartender did not know how to make drinks correctly. We will not be going back.

Great price during sundowner specials. Had the fresh catch of the day and they have a website that tells you where your fish was caught!

We enjoyed the atmosphere with great food and service. Unfortunately for us it is too expensive. Guess the location is worth it for some but we would not return.

It is with great sadness that we announce the closing of The Black Pearl. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to our amazing and hardworking staff and every single one of our guests for your patronage over the last 11 years. Our team, led by Executive Chef Kevin Wynn in the kitchen, worked hard to bring an incredible dining experience to each and every one of our customers. The Black Pearl has been privileged to be a part of so many special life occasions to both locals and tourists alike. But with one door closing, another will open. We look forward to bringing a new and exciting dining experience to the Boardwalk in the Spring of 2018. Stay tuned for our next exciting venture…
