Our last visit was in November and 5 of us had a great time! So, back we went this trip and 4 of us had 2 dozen wonderful oysters, sliders, lobster rolls and (shame on us!) desserts!! Once again, everything was wonderful and, because of bad weather in Charleston we walked right in and got a booth!!! The manager is a great guy (apologies for not getting his name for the second time!) and attentive to everyone,

Had dinner here; arrived at 4:00 and the bar was already packed with locals. Enjoyed the appetizers a little more than the dinner. Fun atmosphere. Great service.

The front desk person at our hotel recommended Pearlz for a late night bite and drink. Very easy to find and a very nice atmosphere. We shared a shrimp appetizer and shrimp tacos. Both were very tasty. In fact the appetizer was the best cooked shrimp I've had in quite awhile with an excellent sauce. I will definitely return when I return to Charleston.

We arrive soon after 4 pm for the happy hours and the place quickly filled. We liked particularly the oysters (had 2 dozens raw each). You can avoid the fish taco which is just ok. Shrimp and grits were average (shrimps under-cooked). Drinks are also good and our waitress was particularly friendly. We would definitely go again but would stick to the oysters (and drinks) only.
