Tucked away from Savannah's commercial and historic districts, Pearl's Saltwater Grill is a top-notch seafood restaurant with great food, a lovely view of the Herb River and good service. One of the best parts of a Pearl's meal is in the very beginning, when each table receives a basket of piping hot hushpuppies with honey butter. The crisp, slightly sweet fried balls of dough are addictive. Those wanting to throw caution to the wind and keep going with the fried theme will enjoy the restaurant's selection of fried seafood, which includes shrimp, flounder, catfish, oysters, scallops and soft shell crabs. The more health conscious crowd will appreciate Pearl's selection of steamed dishes, among them shrimp and Alaskan crab legs. The restaurant also features a variety of fishes that can be customized with one of several sauces, as well as a number of classic dishes that the restaurant has been serving for years, including a standout crab stuffed flounder.
- Seafood: "If you're a shrimp lover who is having trouble making up your mind, go for the shrimp three ways, a delectable feast consisting of grilled jumbo Caribbean shrimp, fried shrimp and Applewood smoked bacon-wrapped stuffed shrimp."
- Best for Seafood Because: The seafood is superb and the view is even better at Pearl's Saltwater Grille, an eatery located on the Herb River.
