It was a very very late lunch here, after the journey from Duncan to Charleston so my tummy wasn't really ready for chilled food. I never realized before this there can be so many types of oysters and flavors. The small ones were really good, cucumber taste which was very refreshing. I am Asian and my English friend communicated with the service staff and she recommended us a few types of oysters for sampling. I am not sure if they already have a "catalog" of oysters with photo, name and description of the taste etc; that will be helpful for visitors who take a longer time to comprehend what the service staff said because of the American accent Asians are not used to. I could have ordered more oysters if not for my sensitive stomach. The oysters were so fresh and succulent. Service was good and the manager was friendly and interacted with the patrons. Next day, the few of us spoke about going back to this restaurant again but due to the limited time in Charleston, we didn't get our 2nd round of oysters.

Had a lovely dinner on the front porch. Started off with a dozen oysters, fresh and clean. Mixed grill for a couple of us, char grilled scallops, and shrimp & grits rounded out the table. Food was good but portions were a bit on the small side. Honey grits were the hit of the night. Quaint, revived Annandale neighborhood was lively. I even tried the Peach-a-Rita, well two. Check it out.

I found Pearlz on Tripadvisor and every good thing people mentioned was true. The feel of the place is very local with people of all ages enjoying the food and drink. We had a half dozen oysters for only $6.95 and they were fresh and juicy. The daily shrimp and grits changes all the time. On our night it was coconut shrimp with horseradish/marmalade grits. I will definitely be trying to recreate those grits at home! The really great part was impeccable service by both our waitress and others who stopped by. We felt welcomed and pampered. I highly recommend Pearlz.

This is the West Ashley big sister to the East Bay location, twice as big with a long bar, and very alive. The regular menu was good, but the daily specials were even better. Very good service and food in a casual atmosphere.

We did not have a reservation, but we were seated fairly quickly, before we finished our drinks at the bar. We started our meal with a wonderful she-crab soup. My corvina dinner was delicate and delicious, served with a lobster risotto and pole beans. My husband did not enjoy his crab tower salad with green goddess dressing. He said it was boring. However, the manager took his dinner off our bill. The restaurant was rustic and noisy. Our waitress was very pleasant.
