Oysters, grilled fish sampler, fish of the day (black drum), stew were all fantastic! Service was great. Slightly disappointed that they couldn't make the mussels without the wine (typically restaurants substitute with vegetable broth). Parking can be a bit dicey, so leave a little extra time for that.

These two made our dinner an exceptional experience. Jessica was extremely attentive and friendly. Ben was the manager on duty and he was a real hustler. He obviously leads by example and it shows. My wife ordered a drink from the bar and after it arrived he walked by and noticed that something about it didn't look right. Without asking... More

This restaurant/bar is not located in central Charleston. It is tucked away. So glad we found it. My husband enjoyed an assortment of oysters which were delicious. I enjoyed fish and chips. Best I have ever tasted with great flavor and light crispy coating. This entree had three huge fillets along with homemade chips( not french fries ). My husband... More

We had the happy hour specials of oysters, corn fritters, and peel and eat shrimp! All were fantastic! Shane our waiter was able to thoroughly explain all the menu items so that we knew exactly what to expect and everything was delicious. We would definitely go back. Parking is very difficult- park in the back.

Picked up our friends from Maine at the airport and went straight to Pearlz. It's a tradition. Best oysters in town and very reasonable prices. Wait staff is always friendly and helpful. The place is conducive to conversation (no loud music) and usually you don't have to wait for a table. (maybe Friday or Sat night). The service is quick... More

We had the '12-shell varietal' plate of oysters; 2 of each of the 6 types the Pearlz sells. Cost was $24.95 so I think is slightly on the dear side but worth doing if you're an oyster lover and wish to experiment. I thought they were all good! My shrimp and grits were superb; very tasty, fresh and lots of... More
