I have stopped by Black Pearl a couple of times recently and had clam chowder on the patio as well as ate inside on another occasion. Both times we received excellent service and our food was very good. Breakfast is served inside until 2:30pm.

Hello, They are open for lunch. i believe from noon until 9 pm. They may even have a Sunday brunch menu. Lunch is much cheaper than dinner. Either way the food,service and atmosphere is amazing. Enjoy!
