We traveled to Charleston on our honeymoon and dining at Pearlz was one of the highlights of our trip. We walked in at 4 p.m. for happy hour and sat at the bar right next to the oysters and were in awe as they were shucked in front of us! The oysters are HUGE and so fresh and delicious. We ordered 3 dozen and probably should have done more :)
I had never had oysters before my trip to Charleston and it will be tough to find anything close to this in Michigan. My heart will forever be at that oyster bar and I can't wait to go back someday. If you are looking for oysters you can't miss this.

We just went their for an after dinner snack, and had, well you can guess what we had. We would have gone for dinner, but didn't want to wait the 45 minutes so had a disagreeable dinner elsewhere. The snack did not disappoint.

We travel through Charleston while on yacht deliveries and usually have our standard restaurants that we eat at. On this trip my wife had heard about Pearlz and decided to try it. we expected to have the usual long wait to be seated... Although we did have to wait, they made us feel like we were the most important people there. Once we sat down, the wait staff was right there and our drink order wasn't far behind.
We ordered appetizers that were excellent. Oysters were the best that we have had in awhile.
My wife, who normally just has a meal and will mention to me if the food is good or poor thought that the special that she had that night was the best dinner she had ever had. Because she wouldn't stop talking about it I called the manager over so she could tell him.
So... If you are looking for a great seafood restaurant that is fairly priced, friendly and has great food... You've found it here.
