“Great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2007

Off the beaten path, this restaurant is worth finding. Meals were excellent. Tilapia and crabmeat, shrimp three way, parmesan crusted grouper, chicken alfredo were our dinner choices. All were hits. Hush puppies were tasty. Seafood nachos before dinner hit the spot. Find this place for a great meal.

“Decent Meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2007

We had a 7:30pm reservation, and we specifically requested a table by the window...so glad we did! The view was great - the restaurant sits on the lake, and it was nice to look out onto the marsh, the docks, and the houses across the lake. The interior decore needs to be updated - looks like the 80's with cheap tables and chairs, but the view made up for it! The service was good (a bit slow, but that seems to be typical of Savannah) and the food was pretty good. We tried the fried green tomatoes (not the greatest...but, ok) and the hush-puppies were plentiful! We ordered the parmesan grouper, and the cashew-crumbed mahi mahi...both were good, and served with fresh asparagus. Both entrees seemed reasonably priced. We ordered the warm chocolate cake with pudding - decent, but kinda dry. There were a lot of parties waiting to be seated, so make sure to call ahead and get a reservation - we were seated within a couple of minutes of our arrival. NOTE: the restaurant is not located in the historic district...it took about 15 minutes to drive there. Fairly easy to find...but had trouble finding our way back, since one of the roads turned into a different name without our noticing it...so backtracking wasn't easy. Just make sure to ask for directions to and from the restaurant, and you should be good! Overall - would recommend the place based on view, decent food and fair pricing. Just don't get too focused on the decore, and you should be fine :)

“hushpuppies! beautiful view! delicious seafood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2007

It was a pleasure to dine on several occasions at Pearl's while we were in Savannah looking at Real Estate. The big bonus was a delightfully animated young server named Elizabeth who made every visit such a happy experience. The hushpuppies were a fun opener to the meal. The local Grouper is the best. Make sure you go early, so you can watch the sun set on the Marshes from your table. It's so relaxing.

“Great meal, Great view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2006

This is a find. Large windows look out on the water of a tidal inlet typical of the Georgia coast. The menu includes seafood and steaks. For fish, you can specify preparation or order from local or house specialties. There is also a section of fried seafoods. Quality, preparation, and service is competitve with the best Savannah restraunts. Away from the bustle of the historic district and has own parking lot. All cars were local but three. Fifteen minutes from downtown
