Shavers come out of retirement with The Pearl Shreveport

Robert and Trudie Shaver, former owners of Shaver’s Crawfish & Catering, are coming out of retirement to open a new shreveport restaurant, The Pearl. The new restaurant is taking over the former La Madeleine restaurant located at 6871 Fern Ave.

The local couple owned and operated Shaver’s Crawfish & Catering for almost 30 years before Robert transferred ownership to his brother and partner a few years ago.

The Pearl Shreveport fulfills Robert’s lifelong dream of owning a seafood restaurant. However, he’s made it clear that the restaurant will be a destination for all, serving up a variety of entrees that accommodate many different tastes. They’ve also shared they plan to have a special Sunday Brunch menu. You can view their full menu by clicking here.

Robert and Trudie plan to continue their hands-on management style by remaining on-site as much as possible and working closely with Benn, their general manager, and Val, their executive chef.
