Every time we're in Charleston area, we always stop a few times at the Pearlz raw bar on E. Bay street. I've even left a good review for that place once, no need to repeat. It's great place, good quality oysters, excellent drinks and service. This time, our hotel was a few minutes off downtown area, around route 17, and... More

We had just arrived from New York and Che led into the Marriott Hotel. We asked where should we go to eat dinner and Pearlz was the first place they recommended. Since we eat seafood all the time and we're basically around the ocean, we figured it made sense. When we arrived the place didn't look like much. But when... More

Our first time at Pearlz. The Happy Hour are the best prices. I ordered the fish and chips, two ordered raw oysters, and one ordered the mahi mahi fish taco which was awesome. My beer batter crust was just slightly over fried and greasy, but the fish was very moist and very good. Corn Fritters were good. The Oysters were... More

Everytime we go to Charleston we hit Pearlz for Happy Hour. They have a deeply discounted appetizer and drink menu. We prefer the cute and tiny front patio and sit and have a couple of oyster shooters and oysters on the half shell. Service is always spot on and the oysters are delicious. If you love horseradish be sure to... More

Outstanding variety of oysters from a complete menu of appetizers and main courses. Start off with Happy Hour and enjoy the food, service and atmosphere. This is casual Charleston at it's finest. Shane is one of the outstanding employees and all of them make sure your visit is the best. Ask for a chicken soup oyster shooter if your game.

We like to eat at Pearlz's Oyster Bar. On the weekends, seats are hard to get. Go early. They have great oysters. The lobster roll was very good but small. The small plate scallop was small and the calamari not that good.

Food and atmosphere can't be beat. Loved everything. Mussels were my favorite. Don't skip this place...fun place to hang out. Sit at the bar to have a great social experience. Nice people, fair prices, great food. Get an oyster shot.

Great food, great staff. Fish and chips were great. Fried Shrimp was excellent. HUSHPUPIES had a sweet powdered sugar covering which complimented the spicy inside perfectly. Husband had the variety sampler of oysters and was impressed. Great service and prompt food delivery! Will definitely come back when we are in the area. A true local gem!

Parking is a problem and it is very loud but well worth the trouble. Oysters and the seafood chowder were the big hits. Happy hour doesn't get any happier.

We just decided on the spur of the moment to go here for dinner. The menu has not changed much since we were there last. There are a number of dishes that are always on it, like the mussels, lobster roll, burgers and shrimp and grits. There is also a specials menu which lists the fresh fish and oyster varieties...
