I went here with ten others on a family visit on a hot August night. The place was popular and we had a 20 to 30 minute wait at 6 p.m. The restaurant is not air-conditioned and only has a few fans on the weekend. Windows are open but it took a while to adjust to the hot, noisy space.... More

We (2 couples) visited the Pearl after spending a day at Race Point Beach. We arrived after 4pm on a Saturday - seated at a table on the first floor near the entrance. We would have preferred upstairs/outside but they had no awning or umbrella's and we would have baked in the sun (after a day in the sun). Live... More

This was our 2nd visit (didn't notice the difference in management) and we had a nice table at a window with perfect weather. Our waitress was lovely and helpful although a few things were not delivered quite as we had ordered, but that was quickly fixed. We split their "super salad" which is not terribly super but decent with greens,... More

When planning a trip to Wellfleet I was worried about what my vegan son would eat. We went to Pearl Restaurant because I wanted a lobster roll. There were many choices for my son and the waitress was very accommodating. She double checked with the kitchen to make sure what he ordered was vegan. He enjoyed his meal and I... More

This year we went back to Pearl's for dinner. Arriving for an early dinner on a Friday was a good idea as we were quickly seated, later the line became much longer. The dinner selection was the Fried Seafood Platter, New England Shrimp and Grits, Paella, and the Swordfish. The Seafood platter is huge! Trust me, this could easily be... More

The Pearl has always been a personal favorite, but the last few times it's been quite disappointing. First off, the reception and tables management is just terrible. A few weeks ago we arrived just before 7pm, and were told 20 minutes on the wait...it became an hour. One suspects they knew. As we walked in there were many tables available... More

Had dinner at Pearl tonight and we were disappointed. Nothing really bad, but also nothing really interesting, The menu is somewhat limited, there are no specials, and only three items for dessert. The place has such potential - perfect location on the Wellfleet pier - we sat upstairs on the outdoor deck and had a lovely view of the marina... More

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. Come in for our Fresh Music Live Seafood happy hour with live musical performances by local Cape Cod musicians, combined with great deals on select items from our raw bar. Join us on select days from 3pm-5pm for great summer fun, food and entertainment.
