I dropped in with a friend who was visiting from Ontario, Canada. We had lunch and were served by Emily. She was very sweet and kind. She is a server who knows how to treat her customers. We ordered two items on the menu to...share. Without us having to ask Emily served our fish tacos on two plates portioned equally to us. To some this may seem like a trivial thing but to us it was a wonderful gesture. The food was excellent. We shared a Chicken bruschetta and fish tacos. I look forward to returning and seeing Emily and the other staff again. Keep up the good work Emily. People do notice.More

Food and service was excellent. Emily was amazing and as we were sharing some appies, she had them split and served separately with extra fries. Thanks Emily and the chef.

Very Busy for a Thursday Night. I would recommend reservations for either inside or patio seating. The Nachos were large enough to split between 4 adults. The Haddock was also their feature this day.

Staff were all organized and friendly in spite of it being a very busy Tuesday evening. I had the battered haddock & fries while my friend had haddock on a mixed green salad. Portion sizes were big and delicious.

It was busy on a the patio and Madison was buzzing. Provided good service which I reflected in my tip. Not so sure about the food - I had the Lemon Haddock Salad. The haddock was overcooked, somewhat rubbery and the salad looked like it...was slapped together as an afterthought. Arrived after several minutes. To be fair, it tasted good, just did not look so appetizing.More

Menu looked great, although we didn’t eat there. We went for the afternoon for cocktails. It was a beautiful day on the patio, however the staff of ladies, seemed more interested in talking to one another than serving the patrons. We finally received service from...a server, drinks were good. Just be patient if you go here.More

We had a mixed bag of service here Monday evening July 12/2021. We wanted to have drinks and watch the live music. The waitress was sweet offering to clean off a table and she told us to see the desk clerk to give our names...and phone number. No problem except for the stone cold ice princess that took the info! Why do they hire people like that for customer service? I have asked myself this more than once. The waitress was a 5 star though and we really enjoyed the drinks and music!More

My fiancé and I had a fantastic experience this evening. Probably the best food we have ever had at a restaurant. Highly recommend the steak bites 👌🏻. The Amaretto Sour was the best I’ve ever tasted and the customer service was perfect! Can’t wait to...come back again!!More

We went here after a long day of island visiting. We went to cavendish and all places were closed as tourism season is finished on the island. We ended up driving to Charlottetown looking for a place to eat and after driving past many closed...seafood places, we settled on this option. The customer service was on point, we were escorted to a comfortable circular booth and helped immediately by the waiter. We asked for recommendations and were told the steak sandwich and a few others. We realized immediately it maybe wasn’t the best place for seafood. I still took the fish and chips. A large piece of fish battered correctly; however lacking a bit of flavour. The coleslaw was delicious, perfect amount of creaminess and the fries weren’t fresh and we should have asked for some salt. My husband took the steak sandwich and worried he had covid because the sauce for the steak was completely flavourless. He did say that the beer recommendation was pretty good though. If you re desperately hungry, not a bad option, it was ok. I wouldn’t visit again though...More

Reservations are not taken for the patio or indoors. I have dined many times at John Brown's and had no problem in getting seated. I suggest that you allow enough time to dine in order to get to the show on time. Service... More
