We will be closed on Friday, October 13th to honor the amazing life and legacy of our co- founder Mark Cumins.

As Mark would say, the show must go on, so we look forward to serving you on Saturday, October 14th and sharing your memories of Mark.

Photos from Pearlz Oyster Bar's post 10/07/2023

We are heartbroken by the announcement that Mark passed away last night. ย He fought his battle with sarcoma for over a year and in that time showed grace, wisdom, and dignity throughout this journey. ย He leaves an amazingly close family who were by his side every step of the way. ย 
Mark never met a stranger, never thought he was better than anyone else and if anyone personified what this company is about, it is Mark Jeffrey Cumins. Celebrate the life of Mark by being a little more hospitable, we have been blessed by the legacy of this man!
