After a monring on the beach, we drove into Wellfleet for lunch at Pearl. We decided to try the roof top dining. Big mistake !!!!, we realized after sitting there for about ten minutes that it was impossible to get out of the sun even with an umbrella, but were too stubborn to ask to sit back downstairs inside. My... More

If you like sticky table tops, less than attentive service, bad food but with a terrific view of Wellfleet harbor then the Pearl is for you! My swordfish was small and dry. My mate's chicken piccata was almost inedible. People were lined up at the seafood market next store so that might be the place to go!

Ordered the paella. Two mussels and two clams along with tiny pieces of over cooked chicken and diced pieces of sausage. I left hungry.

Dined here as a party of four on June 13th. Food ranged between poor and indifferent, hot oyster appetizer oily, grim. Place seemed better last year. Wine? Weak too. Looks to be a beer and fries place, but stop there.

My wife and I used a Sunday matinee at the WHAT theatre as an opportunity to finally try the Pear in Wellfleet harbor. There is good news and bad news about this timing. The good news is that we arrived around 4:40 on a Sunday afternoon, and we were seated right away, albeit downstairs inside, because the skies were overcast... More

The Pearl has been the primary restaurant I have eaten at on my 2 week vacation for many years now. We have not been able to stay away! We arrived yesterday for the start of vacation and, of course, went to the Pearl. The menu has changed and the meals we were looking forward to are no longer available. We... More

My husband and I had lunch with our sister-in-law. Nice to over look the harbor. Look up before entering, I didn't even see there was a roof top deck!! Would have been much nicer sitting up there. We sat in the restaurant, with no air conditioning. It was quite warm. The food was good, and the service was friendly.

Located at the corner of Commercial Street and Kendrick Avenue on picturesque Wellfleet Harbor, Pearl is the quintessential Cape Cod dining experience. It features indoor-outdoor dining on multi-level decks with panoramic views of the entire harbor including the main boat dock, the town pier, Mayo Beach, and Great Island. Pearl offers delicious, fresh local seafood, an array of craft and local beers, wine, cocktails, and some of the greatest views that you will find anywhere. We use local fisherman and growers whenever possible to not only provide the best possible dining experience, but also to support our fellow Cape Cod businesses.
