We were seated within 5-7 minutes of arriving. Ordered one pound of snow crab legs, my wife ordered the fried seafood plate. We shared a bowl of chowder for the appetizer, large chunks of clam, very good. Shrimp and fish on seafood plate were fresh, large portions, cooked just right. Crab legs were past excellent, steamed perfectly and held their "crackability" till I was done. Large portion, definitely the best serving of crab I have had in Midwest. They were short-handed, didn't seem to hinder our service. Seemed like the hostess and our waiter were hustling and taking care of everybody. definitely on our best list for seafood.

The Oysters were wonderful, but a bit pricey at 18.00 a dozen.
Quality and service was excellent!

Last review on Trip Advisor was 2008, three years later some things never change. Service is less than desirable. We waited no less than 15 minutes before the waiter showed up to take drink orders.Then we waited what seemed like an eternity to get our Calamari appetizer. Once it arrived it was good. We ordered a few different entrees, crab cakes, fried shrimp and creamy seafood with penne pasta. All reasonably good. Menu prices were typical for seafood. However, the service and the fact that they allow smoking in the restaurant really caused us to rate this restaurant down. Even the waiter noticed the guy at the next table smoking a cigar and seemed annoyed!

We have an Ameristar Casino in our hometown, Kansas City, and we enjoy eating at Pearl's Oyster Bar. So when we were looking for a place to have dinner on our first night in St. Charles, we took the hotel shuttle to the Ameristar, to have dinner at Pearl's. We wish we had not bothered. It does not compare to Pearl's at the KC Ameristar. The service was very slow. We ordered drinks and it took quite a long time for them to arrive. My husband was given a long teaspoon to eat his bouillabaise. We had to flag someone down to get a decent sized spoon and a plate for used shells. The dish was very spicy, more like gumbo. The doorman on the bar entrance was miserable and unhelpful and pretty useless when asked questions about the entertainment.
If you are in St. Charles, go downtown to eat at one of the restaurants in the historic area.
