Half shell oysters were excellent, clean, good variety. Meals were superb. Tap options well selected for quality and variety. Had desserts as it was my birthday- wasn't expecting much, but they too were excellent all around. Atmosphere was nautically themed without being hokey. It was...More

First the good : The Addie biscuits are sublime. Truly. The mussels and crabcake very good. Fried oysters arrived mushy and over seasoned. Warm coleslaw (yuk). Service very good. Pleasant ambience. Go, but skip the fried oysters.

Family from the Midwest was in town and they wanted seafood. Turned out to be the perfect spot to take them. Monday nights are 1/2 price oysters. The drinks are excellent. We did a tapas style dinner and it turned out great!

I am a seafood lover and Pearl Dive did not disappoint. We selected several different harvested oysters so we could compare the differences, which is a nice change. We each had a different entree and shared and compared. They were all very good, shrimp ,...More
