Coming from Denver, we do not get this variety of fresh seafood, the salmon, and panko crusted haddock, baked perfectly. All sides were fresh too

Living as we do on Boston's North Shore, we were both surprised and delighted to find the Pearl. Located at one end of an unexciting strip mall it took us a while to try it, but we should have gone sooner! Each night they have a varied selection of oysters from Canada down to Cape Cod. Your order can be... More

We were there on a weeknight, which certainly helped keep things sane, as the place can get very busy and loud, and as the tables are spaced very close, it can feel overwhelming when very busy.

I've eaten a lot of oysters in a lot of different places famous for oysters, but The Pearl's are always the freshest and tastiest. Their secret is they never pre shuck them and you can taste the difference. But... More

We love Pearl! Delicious cocktails, teas, and fresh oysters, inspired appetizers and seasonal salads, the best crab cakes, a great range of fish, meat, and vegetarian entrees, and yummy brownie sundae and other desserts to top it all off. Our favorite restaurant!
