I must admit that I have enjoyed Pearlz may times in the past. This trip was not the experience that I was hoping and have enjoyed iln the past. The waitress’ recommendation on oysters was totally off base, I don’t think she actually eats oysters. Secondly, grilled Mahi fish taco was mostly a cabbage taco with little chunks of fish on top. It’s not at all what I’ve come to enjoy on my previous trips. I think I’ll just stick to the gulf oysters and skip the rest of the menu.

I was so excited to give this place a try. I must say it has changed a lot from the days of Vickery's, but as they say change is not always a good thing. The restaurant is very sterile you could drop this place into Atlanta’s Buckhead or even NYC and you’d never notice. That’s not what I look for in a Charleston restaurant. Then the calamari appetizer shows up, shoe string thin with some legs dropped in, no flavor very bland. Then I think “ah, the meatloaf” that the waiter recommended. Let’s just say it had been a few days since they “cooked it fresh”. I thought the calamari had no flavor, no seasoning AT ALL. I don’t generally touch the salt and pepper when dinning out, this needed a big dose.
I’m hoping that this is just part of the growing pains of a new restaurant, but judging by the crowd, I’m not sure they will make it to the next year.
