About
Maid Marian's Diner has been a favourite dining spot for Islanders and visitors for over 30 years! Maid Marian's opened on Feb. 9, 1987, and it had 28 seats when it first opened. Over the years, more seats were added, eventually giving the restaurant a capacity for 110 people. On May 20, 2009 a devastating fire destroyed this Charlottetown landmark as Maid Marian's Diner plus the adjoining Sherwood Drug Mart went up in flames. Both were rebuilt in the original area on Ellis Road near the Brackley Point Road and Belvedere Avenue intersection, but further back to allow for more parking. We are so thankful that we have always had amazing support from all of our customers over the past 30 years, no matter how long you've been dining with us!

Had to wait in a little line up for breakfast, didn't have to wait very long at all. The service was quick, the order was quick and the food was quick. The waitress was friendly and the food was very good, I had breakfast twice this week and went back for dinner on another occasion. The food is very good and reasonably priced, you should be full by the time you leave. A great place to eat. It was busy at both breakfast meals so I can understand why I wasn't asked if I needed a refill for my coffee, you may need to get the waitresses attention which is very understandable so not really a complaint. Go for it, you wont regret it. Reccommended.

This is our third "virus" dining experience. We take turns selecting where we go. Today was my daughter's choice and Maid Marion's is her favorite place. She loves their chicken wrap and fries. I had the scallops which were very good. I also had the onion rings which were not as good. It is hard to rate food when you take it out as it sits in the container for a while before you eat it so it is not a true rating as it would be if you ate it fresh in the restaurant. They were really busy so I would suggest that you place your order the day before to avoid a long wait. I had a thought. Our island and many other places in North America have banned plastic bags as they are environmentally unfriendly and yet thousands of restaurants, dare I say millions? Are sending out huge quantities of food each day in styrofoam containers. Last time I checked, styrofoam is not very friendly. But maybe I'm wrong. Maybe there are styrofoam farms all over Canada and I just overlooked them.

We went here for breakfast initially and were delighted at the quality, quantity, selection and price of food. Throw fast, excellent and friendly service on top of that with a homey dinner atmosphere and you have the complete package. After this experience we went back for lunch one day and dinner another and consistently were happy with all aspects of this great restaurant! With the huge menu selection you could eat here every day and be looking forward to the next time.

They messed up my birthday order and refused to believe that was possible by calling me and explaining to me why I was wrong. Then offered me a $15 gift card of a $45 order to return to awful service even though the supervisor that evening promised me a full refund. I feel bad for the wonderful servers at this establishment as the manager has very poor communication and customer service skills. Eat here and pray they get your order right, otherwise be prepared to be humiliated and then ignored by the manager. Picture of the $8 large soggy “large” salad that I “must’ve misunderstood” the sizing of when I ordered.

Knottingham Breakfast is just that Not Any Ham. Lol The ham was sliced so thin the pig didn’t even feel it and it was toupee ham. For a company that say “made fresh” you would of liked to see really ham sliced. Bread is that old Bens bread, again “made Fresh” you would expect home made bread. I had the egg omelette and with onion and ham. Again, the pig has more ham in its pinky toe then I did in my omelette. I did have lots of onions though. The gam was chopped so small you could hardly see it lol. Anyways, we won’t go back- But, the service was top notch - the waitresses are amazing.

We had supper at this restaurant. The restaurant and bathrooms were clean. The server was polite and fast. We both had hot turkey sandwich, are food arrived to to our displeasure we received shaved turkey, not turkey pieces. This item was very overpriced and was suppose to be tasteful, was very bland. We use to go many years ago before covid and this sandwich was very good, now I would never buy it again. We also had desert was was very over priced and the size of the portion was very small and certainly not worth the price they were charging. Overall we will never be going back to this restaurant again

Michael, sorry to hear that you were disappointed in the food. Our hot turkey sandwich dinner is a very popular item. We have been serving it in the same way for many many years. On Tuesday the turkey sandwich is our special which includes choice of mashed or fries, as well as small pop, coffee, or tea for $12.99. Not sure what type of dessert that you had but all of our pies and cake slices are $5.49 each.

Great food, friendly staff, and good meal portions. Only complaint was you had to pay extra for the orange juice and for the price think it should be included. The restaurant had a nice family feeling to it.

Brian, we have some of the best prices for meals than any business in Charlottetown but as a result we can only offer coffee, tea, or pop as complimentary with our breakfast meals and specials. Hope to see you back!

I have been here a couple of times now and it is always busy. The wait is worth it though as the food is pretty good. The wait staff are not the most talkative bunch and you can feel ignored sometimes if you are waiting on a refill, so you need to speak up when it is busy. Regardless, it is one of my favourite places to eat in Charlottetown.

I attended here on a recommendation of a local. This place is that good old fashioned diner experience. The place has lot's of parking and the flow to get in and be seated is well planed and smooth. Don't let the line scare you, it moves really fast. Once inside there is no messing around, they get your order right away. The variety of food is great. The meals came right away and was just what we ordered. The only downfall was my eggs were over medium vs over easy I ordered. I can overlook that given all the other positive. I will definitely be back.

Excellent family restaurant with good food at an affordable price. All 4 of us enjoyed our meals of chicken fingers, cheeseburger, scallops and grilled cheese. Good portions and tasted great. We had leftovers but made room for the excellent pie! The biscuits were out of this world good and we can’t wait to come back to try the all day breakfast and my husband wants to try the fish and chips that look great. Chelsey our waitress was excellent and very attentive. 10/10 experience!

Was looking forward to lunch from all the good reviews. However the fish cakes were very dissapointing as were very plain . The egg were good but the wife's gluten free hamburger bun was terrific. The best ever.

Sorry you didn’t care for our fish cakes….. we make them in house and they are usually a crowd favourite. Glad you enjoyed the rest of your meal.

My wife and I like to eat at diners whenever we see one and this one didn't disappoint. We went twice in a week and enjoyed different meals which we both enjoyed. Generous portions, great service and you can tell that the locals like this place.

Their burger creation it’s a mouthful was incredible! Such an amazing combo, it was mouthwatering. My husband & I both ordered one. When we questioned what it came with we were told a side of coleslaw. We decided to order a side of fries as well. It wound up being way too much to eat. Large portions even for our children’s meals. Very friendly & fast service despite the restaurant being extremely busy! Will definitely be going back.

Good portion sizes of breakfast but eggs not cooked properly. Crispy edges on easy-over eggs. Definitely not the best cook. Service felt hurried as if they wanted to get us in and out fast. Tried to take my plate and cup before I finished. Restaurant was not busy at the time. Tables are much too high and I felt like a young child with my chin barely above the table. I am 5'4". which is average for a woman. The men at the table seemed more comfortable. Difficult position to eat from plate. This is the second place this restaurant has been in . A fire several years ago burnt the first building. The tables were too high there too.

Great breakfast place. Have had breakfast here several times with the family. No photos because the breakfast is eaten as soon as it comes. This is one of the few places where you can have a nice family breakfast and also enjoy other treats.
