Seafood
With an ambience steeped in rustic charm and a menu filled with treasures from the sea, Pearl Dive Oyster Palace focuses on fresh produce and quality ingredients in its welcoming eatery. Specializing in a wide variety of oysters, from such places as Virginia, Japan, Rhode Island, British Columbia and Washington state, Peal Dive Oyster Palace takes oyster preparation seriously, complementing the delicate taste of the oyster. Appetizer options include crispy crawfish fritters, barbecue shrimp and wood-grilled oysters. Besides oysters, house specialties have a decidedly Cajun flair, with items such as seafood gumbo, crawfish etouffee and Gulf Coast Redfish, all of which have an amazing balance of spices.

The rich entrées at Pearl Dive Oyster Bar are further replicated in its dessert menu, with winning options like Beignets and Brazos River Bottom Pecan Pie.

    EXTREMELY loud inside due to proximity to the bar. If you want to have a conversation with anyone at your table, choose the outside tables. I missed the previous comments about the noise level inside. Otherwise the food and service is great. Highly recommend.

    We go every (usually) Monday for Oyster Mania 1/2 priced fresh oysters. There is always a selection of 6 different types from briny and bright to sweet and meaty. If oysters are not enough for you then tack on a pound of mildly spicy, tomato-infused steamed mussels. We usually drink a lovely Sancerre - a little pricey - but every restaurant seems to have high wine prices now.

    It was an amazing meal, but it was a little loud for my parents, who are in their 60s.
