Rockland has many outstanding restaurants but I have yet to find one that prepares all seafoods well (with the exception of Claws which is take-out style). So I generally avoid seafood restaurants for that reason. Visiting family wanted to go here though so we tagged...More

Great time at the Pearl. Best steak in town! Chris was a great server. He recommended the Blueberry Lemonade. It was intoxicating! Thanks to the owner/oyster shucker for accommodating our group on short notice. See you next year when we come back again!

Early dinner, vacationing from the South. The owner was impatient and unaccommodating regarding seating arrangements. Wonderful town, disappointing restaurant.

The owner is always impatient when there are hundreds of people around and a few them take it upon themselves to make up their own table arrangements. Sorry you didnt have a good time!

I'm sorry but we lost a cook to heat exhaustion that afternoon. We may have lost 10 people, but the 1000 that we had in during the previous 3 days more than made up for it! Thank you again, for your comments. We also received...More

Great deck overlooking anchorage and good food and drinks to go with it. Food is good, but not on cheapest side. Calimari recommended! HAPPY HOUR offers wide range of good beers at low prices! RECOMMENDED

We had greatly anticipated our first dinner at The Pearl , and it was disappointing. Friday evening should have had sufficient waitstaff but instead we had to wave one over. The menus available online are substantially different from the actual menu - which was ok...More

My apologies for your bad experience. There is no excuse for a server not coming over immediately, as we were sufficiently staffed. The food has been spot on all summer, but we do have our moments. But, that is no excuse. Please introduce yourself when...More

Our group of 4 had a great lunch on the water at The Pearl. The great food and friendly service by Chris made up for the cloudy and cool day. We started with lobster bisque, great flavor. The fried haddock sandwich had a nice crispy...More
