Pearl Street holds fond memories for me since I used to live in Buffalo for 2 years and frequent this establishment quite often. Every time I go back to Buffalo, Pearl Street is a stop on the tour for sentimental reasons.

I always order their Trainwreck, Waterfront Wheat or the Triple Double Bock depending on what is on the board and what the weather is like. Since the weather is not great out there, I opt for the heavier beers in the winter to put a little meat on the bones, if you know what I mean.

The food menu is rather good and their fish and chips are fantastic, but I am a fan of their portabello mushroom sandwich.

At times, Pearl Street is pretty hoppin', as it is right next to where the Sabres play. On a hockey night, the place gets rather packed before and after the game. The other nights, it is pretty dead, so they sometimes close early due to the lack of clientele. The service is pretty good, depending on how busy they are and if they have a band in the place or not.

There are three floorst to the restaurant. The top floor is really the game room with the pool tables, the darts and the other odds and ends bar toys. They have a bar upstairs and a almost new patio for the smokers and for the 2 months of the year that the weather is fairly decent.

The main dining room is just that, a dining room and a bar area. It is a little less noisy downstairs unless it's a game night. Then, if you want to have a party, there is another floor downstairs for private groups. It has a couple pool tables and a nice little food area.

Pearl Street is really a rather nice place to go in Buffalo if you want some brews made on premises. I do miss it and hope to be back very soon for another run at the beers.

The beer is awful here. There have been numerous brewmasters throughout the years that have changed the recipe countless times. I can't even finish an American IPA here without struggling. Great place to watch a game or eat food but avoid the beers at all cost

Must visit if you're in the area. Live music on the weekends. Great, great, great food. Decent selection, rarely out of what you wanted.
