This place has been a favourite for a while. Food is always great - my fav is the muscles, but shrimp cocktail or the shrimp poboy or the chowder are items I’ve also had many times. I’ll be back soon! BTW - patio is great for social distancing.

We sat inside at a booth. The staff was very friendly and complied with all COVID-19 protocols. Oysters were delicious as always and the salmon eggs benny and shrimp po-boy were fantastic. Hoping to see more people out for lunch. Maybe this review will help. We really enjoyed it!!

I loved having a fantastic dinner at the parking lot. Staff and the owner were very friendly and welcoming. Pearl Diver is my go to place for good food, good price and good service. Oysters were so very fresh and yummy.

The service was abominable - the cutlery was brought after the food was delivered to the table. The waitress studiously looked away from the tables and you had to actually call someone to get any service. After we ate, we were told that there is a mandatory 18% service charge. I would NEVER go back there.

Food was amazing however our server was very dismissive& unwelcoming. Kept speaking as if it was it was her restauranttill I had to ask like “ are you the owner” which she then told me she wasn’t. Anything I asked for before I could finish my question was a “NO” but then was able to do my request or get what I had asked for. I had asked for a bottle of something and very rudely she replied “ it’s by the bottle you know” after I stated I wanted to the bottle. Very disappointed. Food good tho

The food was delicious! The only complaint is the crab legs were very small, but still very yummy. The sticky toffee pudding is outstanding!! I will definitely come back.

Pros: - We ordered the Pearl Tower and small clam chowder. The seafood was very fresh and the seafood sauce was amazing! I would like to buy just the seafood sauce if possible. The seared tuna was very good, shrimp cocktail was awesome, but the chowder was just okay. - The service was very good, checking in on us to see if we needed anything. Cons from my experience: - We arrived at the restaurant at 7:30AM where I made a reservation about a week in advance but still had to wait for a table for around 40 minutes. - We ordered 2 cans of beer, but it was slightly cold, almost lukewarm when we received it. It was around 27 degrees this day so I wanted a nice crisp beer to cool us off. - We were pretty upset that they added 18% gratuity to the bill without asking us. There was only 2 of us at the table so I didn't understand why they added this without confirming with us. Although the food was really fresh, I'm not sure if I'll visit again.

They are doing great to address the current situation. The fish and chips were superb. I can’t wait for the liver and oyster pate to reappear on the menu.

We've been going here for the past 20 years. It switched hands around 6 years ago, & the quality and service remained top notch. We are often disappointed dining out, but never here. A quality establishment that we are quick to recommend.

Indulge at the Toronto Food and Wine Festival

Food and Wine veterans know all about the must-try oysters on offer at the festival each year, and we’re especially keen on the New Brunswick Shemogue oysters brought in by Pearl Diver. The Entertainment District seafood house is a neighbourhood go-to for fine fish dishes (from pan-seared pickerel to made-just-right moules frites). The spot also brings their chicken and oyster pâté for more daring samplers.
