We have been sampling Lobster rolls and whole belly fried clams in the northeast for much of the summer. The results at Pearl were ok; just not up to the level of other places we have visited.

I think you picked the wrong place to discuss your men for your bus tour. Your menu includes lobster, which we kindly take the time to crack the claws and split the tail for our customers. It most definitely does not and will never include...More

Stopped in for lunch while passing Rockland. We had a good light lunch while getting to enjoy watching the boats on the water! The bacon wrapped scallops, crab cakes and chowder were perfect!

What made our experience so amazing here was the colorful sunset over the water and boats in the harbor. Absolutely gorgeous. I had a perfectly cooked steak and the rest of our party had great meals too. Great friendly service too!
