“Great place!”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

We went to celebrate my husbands birthday on a Friday night and of course it was packed so there weren't tables available, the hostess took our name and phone number to call when our table were ready so we decided to walk around for that time, She called us back and we had a great time, the food was good, they oysters were AMAZING! I totally recommend this place.

“Great place for Oysters!”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

We sat by the window, enjoyed people watching, great food and drink with a great musician playing. Great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Highly recommend this place! The manger was so great at accommodating everyone that came in- the atmosphere was fabulous! Great place to introduce my daughter to oysters!

“Great atmosphere!”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Wait staff was very attentive; manager offered to open a few of the oysters that were difficult to shuck so we wouldn't end up wearing them instead of eating them. The interior décor is a conversation starter. Food was very fresh.

“Amazing food!”
Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

Love Pearlz! Food is incredible and restaurant is beautiful. We didn't have reservations, but were able to sit at a communal table right away. Part of the fun of being in a new city, is meeting people. We had fun just casually conversing with the couples around us. Mixed grill risotto and Mahi Mahi tacos are a must try!

“Great Happy Hour”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

Fresh seafood that included clams, mussels, shrimp, and oysters were very good. Their oyster shooters were delicious. Nate was a great bartender, upon returning another he remember just what we all drank, made us feel very welcomed.
Would highly recommend that you visit.
