My Mom, her partner, my sister and I ate our dinner here on Tuesday July 19. We wanted to be very close to the Charlottetown Festival as "Anne" was starting at 7:00 p.m. There were others dining there who were also going to the show....Our meals came very promptly and they were delicious. We all ordered the same thing: a glass of wine, a cheeseburger and a wonderful side salad of arugula and grilled peaches. Our waitress was Sadie who was very friendly and capable. We would definitely return!!!More

We were in Charlottetown 7 nights and ate here 3 nights, kept coming back ! They had the best lobster rolls, lots of lobster meat without being slathered in any dressing or mayo. The last night we had the nightly special , lobster risotto which...was creamy and cheesy with lots of lobster, simply delicious ! The staff was friendly and helpful ! Would definitely recommend!More

We've been traveling around the Maritimes for a week and this was easily the best meal and service we've had so far. Jill, our server, was attentive and had perfect recommendations for drinks and food, including the best oysters to select. The fish and chips,...lobster roll, mussels, and salads were all very fresh and well prepared. We particularly liked the crisp crust on the fish as it is different than your standard fare. We'll definitely be back if we're ever back in the area!More

Meal was great...fish tacos, lobster rolls. Oysters to start and mussel order our server forgot to get punched in. Meal was slow, refilling drinks slower. After 7 pm so place was less than a third full. Great food , so so to poor service. Thought...we,d get a night cap upstairs on patio. After 40 minutes drinks still haven,t arrived and two apologies from wait staff. We left. Music on the street was great.More

Everything was mediocre. Mediocre service, mediocre food. It had a good vibe outside so we were drawn in to sit down but from there it was downhill. Calamari appetizer was doused with sauce, very heavy handed. Fish tacos were “eh.” Peach and goat cheese salad...was bland. Kids cheeseburger had bbq sauce on it (no warning on menu). Kids chicken tenders were fine. Best word to describe this place is very very mediocre. At best.More

Group of 5, all had different meals. I had seafood chowder, 1/2 bowl or less for $18. Very little seafood, 3 or 4 scallops, 3 mussels, can’t remember anything else. The base was thin, more like skim milk. The very small biscuit was basically half...cooked dough. Other meals barely passed as meals, certainly nothing to return for. Cannot recommend this restaurant and will not eat there again.More

Popular with the younger set, a good restaurant for seafood dishes and drinks including local PEI craft beers. Food is tasty, service is quick and efficient, even on a busy Saturday evening!

Amazing lobster grilled cheese! It’s on victoria row; which is currently closed to vehicle traffic. Along the strip is a bunch of restaurants and some live music on a small stage. We also got the southwest lobster roll & some local beers, all recommended :)...Friendly service and average pricesMore

We had a great table front and centre with comfy arm chairs. Our server Anita was friendly and attentive. My husband didn't like the beer he chose and she offered to bring another which he turned down and said he chose it and not her...fault if he didn't like the peachy taste. When she brought our bill she had generously comped the beer. Not necessary but very thoughtful. The corn flake battered fish was yummy.More

Stumbled across this spot while touring Charlottetown and were pleasantly surprised. There were 6 of us and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Those that had drinks were very happy with both local brew and specialty drinks......don't walk by.
