Went out looking for some seafood but wanted to stay close to the hotel. Have been to downtown Pearlz so thought we would give this a shot. Everything was delicious. We shared the Tuna Poke, Jambalaya Eggroll to start. Entrees include the Lobster Roll, Scallops Special, Grilled Mahi Tacos. Great selection of local beers to try as well. Recommend stopping...

We had dinner at Pearlz. Tried the gumbo and clam chowder. Both were well developed and flavorful. For mains, had the fish and chips and fish+shrimp tacos. The fish arrived hot from the fryer with a wonderful, crispy coating. The house-made chips were crisp and flavorful. Both the fish and shrimp tacos were filled with large pieces of seafood with...

Love this bar as well as the downtown location! The bartenders are friendly, the drinks are great, and 5 dollar house liquor is great during Happy Hour. One of my favorite bars to go to when I'm out with friends, family or gf.

I went to Pearlz yesterday for an early dinner. Had fried oysters on mixed salad. I chose to eat outside because it was a beautiful day and I could have my little dog with me. The fried oysters were delicious and there were seven good sized oysters. Although the salad tasted good, it was really small. I have eaten here... More

During Restaurant Week, there is a 3 course dinner for $30 which is usually very good and a good value. For the first course, my husband ordered the half dozen oysters on the half shell. He enjoyed them. They were not very salty so probably not local oysters. My first course was Steamed Mussels. These were prepared in a tomato... More

Excellent staff, fantastic oysters, neighborhood vibe. We enjoyed this location more than the one downtown because of the atmosphere. Sat at one of the high tops and met some of the locals which was a lot of fun.

If you like European seating, Pearlz will be OK with you when crowded. There are communal high tops throughout, with a small number of booth seating. Very casual atmosphere, service good. Four of us visited, and three liked there soup and fancy fish tacos. My fried oysters were a heap of dry breading surrounding small oysters; don't order this. Try... More

This is a small local area restaurant located at 9 Magnolia Rd. The atmosphere is casual and fun ~ it appears many customers were local regulars who know where to go for good food at a reasonable price in Charleston. I had the Grilled Salmon served with red rice (yummy) and grilled asparagus ~ the salmon was crisp on the... More

Casual atmosphere and decor. Limited menu, but the food is very good. The seafood gumbo was spicy, but delicious – no pepper needed. Fried oyster platter was awesome – good portion for the price. Fresh made potato chips were tasty. Decent selection of craft beer. Friendly quick service.
