The food here is always good and the service is fine. It is just a poor value. We only ordered apps and the bill came to more than many of the other restaurants.

My wife and I, along with another couple, went to The Pearl for dinner. The food was amazing! Most of the menu consisted of what seemed like Asian food combined with seafood. Three out of the four of us got the Salt and Pepper Wok Fried Lobster that consisted of two lobster tails and two claws. The lo menu noodles that were under the lobster also tasted great and could have been a stand-alone meal. For just under $60, the price was a little more than most dinners in Nantucket but it did come with lots of lobster so that was good! The drink menu and wine list were very good as well. Overall, the food was fantastic and the dark atmosphere was cool. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and reservations need to be made well in advance. I would absolutely get the Wok Fried Lobster again!

Thank you for joining us at the pearl!
I am so glad you enjoyed your evening with us.
The Wok Fried Lobster is our single most popoular dish, we serve two tails versus the single tail many spots serve, as guests kept ordering a double order for themselves! Wine & drinks are a real passion for our team, we strive to keep pace with our culinary team. We hope you are able to join us again, soon.
I am at the pearl 98% of the time, would love to say hello next time.

Very popular (reservations a must!), fancy, expensive dining location in Nantucket, MA.
About $100/person, and not everyone had a drink. Most of the special drinks go for $18.
Food is quite delicious. Portions could be larger. My wife found the food too spicy and salty. We passed on dessert to get a cone around the corner.
Personally, I can live without the Pearl.

The Pearl is at the top of my list in Nantucket--cuisine, service, decor--it is a marvelous & special restaurant. I love the intense flavors and the variety of the carefully created menu. Dining at The Pearl feels special every time I go!

We treasure the chance to create unique and special dishes for our guests. Over the years the best part of being a restaurateur is our collection of guests-friends, who become extended family. Making memories is the best reward!
