“Don't miss Pearl's New Orleans Kitchen”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

We love to go here. Great everyday happy hour with special sized and priced appetizers so that you can try everything and discounted drinks. Best Gumbo and Jambalaya, best red beans and rice, beyond amazing Collard greens. I like to order cheddar grits with andouille sausage and a side of collards and mix them up before I eat them. We rent locally through VRBO 280250 and suggest that everyone go to Pearl's. They almost always do and certainly always love it. Oysters Rockefeller and the occasionally available Craw fish Risotto are my favorites. Gator, Catfish, I could go on and on...

“Not all that.”

Pom martini was excellent, as were the red bean cakes. Fried chicken wasn't done through and the server was medicore.

“Holy Cajun!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We arrive at Pearl's around 550pm on a Saturday night and waited nearly 45 minutes to be seated. The place was packed and soon we would see why. We were seated in DeeDee's section and she was a very fun server. She was whitty and attentive. We ordered a few of the local brews and the bayou sampler and it was AMAZING! Oysters Rockafeller with Andouille Sausage Collard Greens and Grits and this crawfish cake that was the best thing I ate all trip. For entrees we ordered the crusted catfish that came with hushpuppies that were so moist and the delmonico with cheddar mashed potatoes. That steak was the most juicy steak I've ever eaten. Cooked to a perfect medium rare the sear made the outside crunch and the inside was melt in your mouth. So impressed. Highly recommended.

“Pearls was fun”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We found Pearls by accident and we're glad we did. We found them during the Bourbon festival and asked for a little advice on what to order. Our server was a hoot and led us in the right direction. Both dishes we ordered were great and the laid back atmosphere made it even more enjoyable. If you want stuffy, fancy people don't come to Pearls, this place is just fun!
