The wife and I visited the Black Pearl our first night in town. We had a superb meal and the view and service were both great. Kind of difficult to find due to no sign out on the street side but once we found it...More

This restaurant is within a few steps from Destin West Gulfside where we stayed. It offers a nice menu with a good variety, and the prices are mid-range. The seafood, pork chop and steak were tasty, plus a nice beverage selection.

The "Blueberry Bread Pudding French Toast" and "Shrimp and Grits" are a MUST try! We enjoyed every bite.

Great price during sundowner specials. Had the fresh catch of the day and they have a website that tells you where your fish was caught!

We enjoyed the atmosphere with great food and service. Unfortunately for us it is too expensive. Guess the location is worth it for some but we would not return.

Nice view of the beach, good cold beer, but the food was nothing special. Pecan crusted flounder: over done and not seasoned. Shrimp was better, and the key lime pie was terrific.
