The Pearl is in the Short North section of Columbus. Unfortunately that means parking is an issue. There is a garage around the corner but we chose the valet instead. There is a decent sized bar area with several high-tops and some sofa and easy...More

Been here again and still love the place. Happy hour specials are the best however I wish they would bring back the lamb meat balls. Those were the best. They also have awesome craft beers from all over!

There is a parking garage behind The Pearl on W. Russell St. (one way road). 0-2 hours $5. We were there for about 3 hours, parking cost $8. There is valet, and street meters (good luck with that).

Description
The Pearl is our take on a gastropub. It's a restaurant for people who love food -- the kind of food our chefs love to create and enjoy. We're pairing innovative culinary technique with traditional tavern fare that's made-from-scratch comfort food. Everything, from our hand cranked sausage to our chorizo dust on our clam chowder is simply great. We also offer 10 unique draughts, 40 bottles of ales, lagers & stouts and two revolving taps of rare, limited and often local taps. Classic cocktails are created with barrel aged spirits from our in-house infusion locker. Guests can also enjoy housemade seasonal punches served tableside in classic punch bowls. Whether you're looking to eat brunch or have some seafood, you've made the right choice. Stop by today!
