Lets just jump right in. We decided to eat at the Pearl Tavern, a seafood restaurant on Sunday Jan. 13 during restaurant week. The atmosphere ate Pearl's was OK. When we entered the restaurant we were greeted and asked if we had come for happy hour. The young lady did not mention restaurant week to us, and probably failed to mention it to anyone else, that might be the waiter's job so we will bypass that. We were sat by the door and when we stated we did not want to sit by the door we were promptly told "Its stays closed, its just an emergency exit". Never mind we had just had a snow blizzard Friday into Saturday. Interesting response don't you think?
James was very attentive and had a great knowledge of the menu.
Three 3in flour tortillas stuffed with blackened shrimp, slaw with habanero sauce.
I gave this an 8 not because the tacos were not good the tacos were EXCELLENT! The choice of sauce left something to be desired. It could have been nice to have maybe another choice of sauce or something other than more nostril clearing habanero sauce on the plate as a dollop was already on the tacos. Yes it is an appetizer and I might be alone on the additional habanero sauce but we didn't need more so we didn't eat it.
5 prong shrimp on a bed of fries with a side of slaw.
This food item received a 7 because the breading on the shrimp was not flavorful we were expecting a traditional cocktail sauce not a horseradish type of sauce. The coleslaw was dry and the hushpuppies lacked seasoning and flavor. The hushpuppies were very dry and virtually had no flavor at all. Unfortunately in my opinion the fries were the star of this meal.
Key Lime Pie with raspberry drizzle, two raspberries on top and two white chocolate straws.
A waitress in the establishment really hyped this dish up so we decided to try. It was somewhat tart but just not what we were expecting. We actually left some on the plate
All in all I would probably only go back to check out happy hour. Peal Tavern is expensive BUT they are a seafood restaurant and a step above Red Lobster so it is expected.
Thanks for reading, my angels! Let me know if you have tried Pearl Tavern and what you though or where I should go next!
