Our first foray into the out of the home dining since mid-March. Enjoyed the outside dining experience. Our servers were extremely pleasant and kept to the safe dining protocols. Our food was delicious, and so was the Beach Water cocktail!! We will be back soon.

They are doing a very good job spreading out the tables. Everything is thoroughly cleaned once a table clears.

Girls lunch on the water- very organized with minimal wait. Drink And lunch order At same time - good drinks served quickly but then we didn’t see our waitress for 45 minutes and food was almost an hour. I think they might have lost our order in the shuffle. Everyone was pleasant - they’re trying to work the kinks out still with this Covid situation.

The food was good as always. Inexperienced servers and no management watching. Not a strong emphasis on Covid restrictions only wiping down the table tops lightly not chairs or anything else , reusable menus which I thought was not allowed. Love this place just didn’t feel that they were going the extra mile to make anyone feel safe and comfortable

We enjoyed the food, service and ambiance. The portions could have been somewhat larger give the haddock price was $24.00.

Great summer day on the water. Beautiful view and amazing food! Guessing the waitstaff was very new but when spending over $300 for lunch I feel the waitstaff should be much more experienced.

They are doing a good job keeping social distancing. The wait staff was good but service was slow. There are many places for fried clams in the area. I would choose a different place in the future. It’s a personal choice but I prefer crispy fried clams. These were soft as were the fries. Nice view of the river.

Considering our current Covid-19 situation, CK Pearl did an excellent job providing good food quality in the safest manner possible. Lovely spot along the water, and after spending the morning at Audubon's Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary, the perfect place to go for lunch.
