    We went during the happy hour menu so that was good. Half off on starters, appetizers, and sandwiches. Several drinks were discounted as well. The chowder was Delicious (the capital D was intentional), you must order the jalapeño spoon bread (not that spicy) and it comes with honey butter. We really like the fried pickles and oysters! The broth that came with the baked oysters was yummy when you dip the baguette in it. The harbor salad had various bits of seafood, and we enjoyed it, along with everything else! Server was very timely.

    Food is okay, appetizers are a must. They offer brunch so we will be back to try it. Wasn't a big fan of our entrees but it maybe great to someone else. Waiter was great ambiance is good and the Pickles are well should be the main event. Everything is home made and you can tell they care. Definitely make reservations because it was packed on a Monday.

    Good brunch and nice variety on the menu. Service was good but they were busy. Pork cheek hash was delicious. We also tried the omelet which was supposed to have roasted pork in it, but couldn’t find any? Then again it is so dark in the dining room you can’t see well.

    This time around the food was so-so. The atmosphere was perfect, waiter was on it, you can definitely tell they made some unnecessary changes to how they prepare some of their dishes. The food was nothing to rave about this time, still love The Pearl and I will definitely be back.

    This is my go to place when I have people in from out of town. The Pearl is excellent. The ambiance, the food, the service.... I never have a bad experience, never have a good experience, I always have a GREAT experience! My June 9 visit was no exception. A special shoutout to our waiter, Jordan. The guy was fantastic!! Very personable, didn't rush as at all, and help explain some of the dishes and even made a recommendation that turned out to be PERFECT!

    The service was terrible from the get go. I asked for requested a taste of the $68 bottle of Sancerre and was told “only if there is a bottle open”. Asked him to check because it was offered by the glass. He came back and set the tasting in front of me and said ther was only one bottle left. We did order the bottle and he delivered it but did not open it. We opened it ourselves. Then he came back and gave me 3 oz more of an open bottle and made sure that I knew that it was because “it was too small of an amount to serve to anyone else”. Thanks, I guess… Asked about what oysters were available tonight. He listed them (and mispronounced them) and had nothing to add about their taste. I asked if he knew anything about the oysters or if someone else could tell us. He made a big deal about telling us about the size of the oyster. Who cares? What does it taste like? It was a Sunday night and wasn’t busy, but it was clear he did not really want to be there. We got through the meal but the food was unremarkable and the prices were exorbitant for the amount. Oysters were served with cocktail sauce and a heavy horseradish sauce. No mignonette sauce. We ordered two platters of a dozen oysters plus a dinner salad and split another entree. We also ordered deviled eggs - $9 for four (half) deviled eggs. I don’t mind paying well for good food and good service. But let’s have it! We won’t be going back for a long while and this was a favorite. Not anymore.

    I had their pancakes as part of brunch with other shared selections. Everything we chose was great for sure. I might have pancakes one time a year, one day later I woke up thinking about Pearl's. Looking forward to having brunch there again soon.

    I don't quite know why, but I had not been to The Pearl in the 5+ years I've lived in Columbus. We had a FANTASTIC brunch. And that was enough to make me a convert. I will look forward, with great anticipation, to our next visit to The Pearl. Food, service, ambiance, drinks - all fantastic. Thank you!

    Birthday dinner for my husband. Hostess and server both recognized this which was a very nice gesture. Apps, drinks and dinner were very good. Pork dish was a bit fatty but still tasted good. Server was very good. Attentive and helpful. Outstanding dinner and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

    We had an awesome time and meal at The Pearl! We had a reservation and we’re taken to our table immediately. We happened to be there during Happy Hour and the specials at The Pearl offer are outstanding! The Devils on Horseback and the Jalapeño bread were great starters. Our meals were terrific, our server was very personable and we saved room for a piece of pie. Overall we were very pleased with our outing to The Pearl!!

    First time here - little on the pricier side but it is very tasty! The short rib with mashed potatoes were great. We also enjoyed the fried pb&j - but we agreed it was more of a dessert than appetizer as it was very sweet. The brown sugar pie is a must for dessert!!
