fresh seafood

Any good Pearl starts with an oyster!  Pearl’s raw bar is legendary.  Located on our enclosed patio and situated on the serene marshland, the is constructed from the re-purposed transom of an wooden fishing boat.  Behind the boat you find the freshest Wellfleet oysters and little necks anywhere!

Outside Dining/Views

One of the Pearl’s favorite features is the abundance of outside dining.  Our upstairs deck offers some of the best panoramic views of Wellfleet Harbor.  The covered patio that abuts to the marshland is shaded, screened and loved by all.  The entire Harbor is right in front of you including the main boat dock, town pier, Mayo Bach, and Great Island.  Always something catching your eye, boats of all types and sizes, fishing of even more types and sizes, kite boarding, kayaking, sun setting and more.


Inside, Pearl offers expansive dining areas for lunch and dinner. Many large windows allow not only excellent views, but allow the ocean breeze to cool diners on hot summer days.  Spacious and artistic, but with a healthy serving of time Cape Cod.

From the numerous uses of antique and vintage lumber and materials, to the eye catching horseshoe crab and school o’ fish metal work of local steel sculptor Steve Swain (Frying Pan Gallery-next store), dinner inside Pearl will be a memorable one.


Pearl’s bar area is a great place to relax and have a cold drink. The structure of the bar is built largely from antique and vintage re-purposed wood.  The windows behind the bar have been modified.  They can be swung up and out to convert and indoor bar area into and outdoor one.  In addition to being great looking, our bar is fully stocked with a great selection of local beers, wines, cocktails, and martinis.


The kitchen is the center of the action at Pearl.  Another innovative design feature utilizes the original steeply peeked roof of the original building (The Spit and Chatter Club then Captain Higgins).  It is now exposed and vaulted over our open air, state of the art kitchen.  The checkerboard tiles, and colorful lighting make Pearl’s kitchen a beautiful place to cook great food.
