Delicious food, great atmosphere, friendly service
We have always loved coming here. However, the past several visits have been filled with poor service, terribly weak drinks and overly salty food. It is overpriced for the quality of the food and drinks. It will be a long time before we dine here again. Such a bummer because it is convenient, close and throws a fun vibe.
Food was outstanding !! From app's to dessert. The service was great, as usual, and the menu special's were a delicious surprise. Thank you for a lovely evening.
Love CK Pearl. Cozy but not crowded, nice marsh view out to the ocean. Great service!!
Very average food smaller portions and poor quality, actually got ill on something I ate.
$1 oysters available M-F 4p-6p. Tonight's oysters specail were from Chatham. They were yummie!
One of my favourites. Great staff. Yummy drinks and bites. Love the setting.
Great place to eat !
Terrific menu and top-notch, attentive service!
Menu limited. Asked for cornbread never received it. Special dessert was coconut cake and was very dry and hard
As always the food was outstanding, lunch menu has lots of options at reasonable prices. Host was able to accommodate our request for a table with a view. Service felt a bit rushed, probably because we arrived towards the end of the lunch shift, our server clearly was ready to be done for the day. However it was still a good experience and we will definitely be back.
The clams were amazing but the kale Cesar salad was terrible. Most bitter tasting salad ever. Don’t think the kale was prepared....
Beautiful area and view! Loved the live reggae band that was playing Saturday afternoon.
Really liked this place! Staff was friendly, great view of the water, food was good. No complaints.
The restaurant is a busy place and the food is good and well priced. Also, the server was attentive and pleasant.
I would recommend it to a friend with reservations. The noise level is extremely loud. My husband and I had to almost shout to be heard, and the group sitting next to our table was shouting as well ( not to mention the proximity).
Perhaps it would be best not to go on a busy night.
Great food! The menu is not overwhelming and the kitchen has mastered the plates it serves. Mussels are a must. The meat on the tuna tacos is fresh. The coconut shrimp are exquisite with their honey mustard dressing giving it a great balance.
Overall, great dinning location. Definitely coming back at least once a month.
Excellent service and food. Great as always.
I was really disappointed by CK Pearl. I ordered the tuna tacos and they arrived cold and somewhat bland. My husband ordered the steak tips which was very good. Stay away from the coconut shrimp -- bready with a goopy coconut sauce.
Everything was so good! First of all, the place is so cute and cozy. Second of all, staff is friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. Third of all, food was amazing! From the raw bar: Oysters and Shrimp. Fresh & delicious. The Fondue was INCREDIBLE. I would eat it on almost anything. Then I got the Salmon over Ramen Noodles. Again, fresh and delicious. Everyone else in the part was happy with their food as well. And of course, the cocktails - all very delicious! Would come back again in a heart beat - well done.
Some in our party ordered fish and chips, restaurant favorite, and commented that the amount of fish was much smaller than they have had in the past and for the price seemed like less of a value.
There was a hint of cleaning fluid as we sat down. Not sure if it was from wiping down the table, but was noticable to 2 in our party. Maybe the cleaning mix recipe was not discretely measured??
We had a wonderful meal at CK Pearl! We had a party of 8 and everyone had a good experience. The waitress we had was terrific! And my scallop entree was one of the best I've ever had. Good drink selection as well, and something for everyone (not just seafood... they have BBQ, burgers, kids menu, etc) And they were very accommodating for my sister, who has celiac disease. We will definitely return soon!
Glad to have the smoked half-chicken back! We're never disappointed ay CK Pearl. The fish is always first rate, as is anything from the smoker. And of course the view of our dear Essex marsh is awesome.
Great atmosphere, food and drinks. Service was superb and very friendly.
Always excellent. Ever changing menu with local ingredients, and old standbys.
Here all the time to see what they're doing.
Also great drinks.
Our server, Linda A, was terrific. She is attentive, knowledgeable and the perfect balance between efficiency and knowing that we wanted to linger. She rocks!
We went to CK's for brunch last Sunday. We were seated right behind the band. Unfortunately, it was soooo loud we couldn't talk. I suspect everyone in the restaurant felt that way. As good as they were they were just too loud. Service was great, brunch was delicious but the blues band was much too loud.....and I'm not an old person.....
My wife and I took her parents out for a "good meal". However, what we got was a GREAT meal in a warm, welcoming atmosphere. The mussels in coconut milk and mild curry were delicious. Everyone really enjoyed the meal and our waitress was friendly and helpful. Great place!!!
One of my favorite north shore restaurants. Always tasty !!
We had mussels and Kale Caesar with white anchovy is great. The serving staff is nice and helpful.
We’ve been to CK several times and it’s one of our favorite places to go but this time was very disappointing. It started with our seating where we were pushed against the back wall and had a “great” view of the service station. I then asked about the tuna belly special and was told “it’s the belly of the tuna”. Not helpful. Appetizers and drinks were good but it took us a long time to get our dinner which was a squash bisque and an overcooked pork special that was so chewy I couldn’t eat most of it. I was really hungry and I really tried, but after a while my jaw hurt and I gave up. Desert was ok but coffee was cold. Definitely not worth the price we paid that night. Will think twice about going back.
Always a good pick for good quality food
I had a cranberry mule slider drink served in an iced copper cup that was deliciously strong and flavorful. Then I had a cup of chowder that was also very tasty. My only suggestions there would be for the clam chowder to be just a wee bit thinner (chowders are not supposed to be so thick that they are almost pasty; they should be thinner with milk or cream.) The server should have stirred the pot quite a bit before putting the chowder in my cup, so it would have been a higher temperature. It was warm but not hot, and should be served hot. The flavor of clams was perfect even though is could have been just a bit thinner. With any kind of seafood, there is always a risk of added ingredients overpowering the seafood’s natural flavor. This came close but was still ok. I ordered 1 shrimp/prawn and 3 raw oysters that were all perfect. My entree was a lobster salad over a bed of arugula. My suggestion here would be to mix the arugula with butter lettuce, because after a while of eating straight arugula, the lobster flavor was overpowered by the peppery arugula. If you mix arugula with butter lettuce, that won’t happen.
The best thing it has going for it is the view. Otherwise, the food and decor were fine, but not memorable in any way.
Very nice evening in a very reliable venue.
Incredible food and the best service that I have had in a very long time. highly recommend. Also, the cookie skillet is amazing
As always the clam chowder is the best on the North Shore. Service was prompt and our food was served hot. Mussels were just the right size, salad was delicious and fresh and my fish and chips were terrific. It’s a little noisy but we like the energy. We eat here often and bring friends when they come to visit.
Wonderful view, fresh oysters and overall delicious food...attentive service as well. Will return!
Great. Was there for lunch. Place was not full so noise wasn’t an issue. Great menu. Some of the best oysters around. Waitress was very nice, knowledgeable etc but we had to ask for silverware at each course. By no means would that keep me away. Was actually pretty funny when we had to stir the coffee with our knives.
Wasn’t an issue with us but may have been with others. Just thought it was worth mentioning.
Have never been disappointed at CK’s.
Had to remind wait staff several times of things we needed. Haddock dinner was dry and very fishy tasting. Pulled pork way too spicy. Fish tacos ok but nothing was worth the prices. Fondue appetizer was best part of meal. Sangria was watered down and hibiscus margarita was 50% sour mix.. horrible! Won't be back, sorry.
