I have eaten at Pearlz on a number of occasions and have always had an excellent culinary experience. I have been converted to eating fish by Chef Victoria. I have never liked fish until I tried hers. My taste buds were dancing in my mouth and I find myself craving her food at least once a month. The service and food are always outstanding and I have recommended the restaurant to numerous friends. I am a huge fan!!!

It really has a cosy interior, I bet a quicker service too. We had a nice dinner as a family and enjoyed the food thoroughly. Charm of Charleston, eating on the pavement is a must if you are around, worth the try...

I was wondering around the city and hadn't done my trip advisor research when I noticed Pearlz. As I strolled by, I noticed it was a lively crowd and the place had an overall good vibe. Everything I had was awesome, from the bisque to the mixed grill special. Service was also great. A good place to people watch to boot!

This was one of our best dinners in Charleston. The place was mobbed and noisy with modern decor and a genuinely fun atmosphere. The staff is friendly and the service was very good. My wife started with peel-and-eat shrimp; a generous portion that was perfectly cooked. She followed this with excellent sautéed scallops served with fresh asparagus and red rice. I had a dozen oysters (only $1.00 each) from the Gulf, that were perfect. I followed this with an excellent pan-fried grouper. We shared (and fought over) a slice of excellent coconut cream pie. I would not hesitate to go back.

I have been here twice in the last two months; once on a family trip and recently on a business trip. The mixed seafood grill was incredibly good, and the oyster sample plate was top notch. The branzino is fantastic. The only detractions were that the restaurant and attached bar can be very loud at times and they seem to be a little short on wait staff at times.
