When in Columbia, SC be sure to try Pearlz. It was absolutely amazing! The best oysters anyone in our party had ever had - and we love oysters!!! The atmosphere and service are fantastic too!!

Had a warm atmosphere, menu & bar with a great wine selection. BUT, it was super noisy & that took away from having THE perfect evening. The raw oysters were fabulous & our daughter loved the calamari with chorizo. It was pouring down rain outside & have to say, it was very cozy inside Pearlz.

After visiting the one in Charleston and enjoying it, we decided to visit this one. Service was great and the food was excellent. The oyster Rockefeller was delicious. We ordered the shrimp and oyster plates and wasn't the least bit disappointed. And despite the amount of dollar signs on trip advisor, the food was reasonably priced. Pearlz remains on the top of my list!

We had great raw oysters and a good craft beer selection on tap. Cool atmosphere with helpful and quick service. Ordered shrimp and grits and their famous BLT, both of which were very good.

Dined at Pearlz for dinner and the seafood / service were fine, but the acoustics are too reflective to allow for an enjoyable meal/conversation. Hardwood ceiling, floor, and glasss/brick walls create a very loud space and a racket ball court of screaming hyenas atmosphere. Tough place for a date, business meal, or special occasion.
