Pearl’s New Generation Restaurant (Lantana)

Posted on March 23rd, 2010 · American Breakfast Lantana

***** Pearl’s New Generation Restaurant, 618 Lantana Road, Lantana, Florida 33462 (561) 582-4366.

In a nutshell, Pearl’s is a “neighborhood diner” with a small sports-bar thrown in for good measure. From what I understand, Pearl who is something like 95, opened this joint back in 1965…and currently runs it with her kids, grand-kids and other family members.

Right up front, if you are looking for “fancy-schmanzy” there is no need for you to read any further. Pearl’s is as basic of a joint that you’ll find. Formica tables, worn stools at the counter…this is not The Cheesecake Factory, J. Alexander’s or Houston’s…I’ll bet you a meal, that when Pearl’s opened in 1965 it looked exactly as it does today…except for the small sports-bar addition, which looks 2000ish.

Anyway…Pearl’s does breakfast-lunch-dinner…with a nice menu of appetizers, salads, soups, sandwiches, burgers, meat-seafood-chicken entrees, desserts….check menu/prices at

I have eaten at Pearl’s twice…one breakfast and one lunch. Did a western omelete, french toast, pancakes…bacon cheeseburger, philly cheese steak sandwich, tuna melt sandwich. Let there be no mistake here, THIS IS DINER FOOD. Absolutely- positively nothing fancy here…just, good- solid- tasty food at very reasonable prices. Like I said before, the joint does breakfast-lunch-dinner…with dinner featuring an “$11.99 early bird special” soup or salad, entree, potato, coffee, dessert.

I love joints like Pearl’s. They are a throwback to the way America use to be before big-chains took over everything.

Pearl’s is open Monday-Saturday 6am-10pm and Sunday 6am-2pm.

    Jeff I got a good diner for you – Andrews Diner in ft lauderdale. It’s off the beaten path, just south of oakland pk on andrews but its one of the best ones ive eaten in. Place gets very busy at lunch, need to wait outside for a table!

    I have eaten here twice now, will never go back. Management has no clue how to run a restaurant. Cooks are horrible with no sanitation practices.
