The selection of oysters was very good and the oysters fresh and wonderfully tasty. The chowder and fish tacos very good as was the fish and chips.

I clearly communicated my very specific allergy but the kitchen staff and manager do not know what is really in their food. I left with a reaction, and empty stomach, and embarrassed in front of my date.

Very friendly service from Tanner. The oysters on the half shell, the blackened fish sandwich, and grilled salmon were all delicious. The restaurant is located close to the waterfront in a restored vicforian-era mercantile-type building. Recommend reservations.

Tried for Sat night but fully booked so opted for Sun evening & the hostess Bryn was very friendly & accommodating . Tourists have to remember the locals like to dine out on the weekends too & don’t expect to be able to just walk...into any restaurant when on vacation. Do your research & don’t just go by the reviewers as everyone has different expectations. Most customers are influenced first by how they are treated, followed by the atmosphere, 3rd the food. The M&M got 5 stars from us for all 3! Our server Cameron was very professional, genuinely friendly & on top of all his tables plus being a team player as we saw him helping out others. You could tell the staff worked well together as we sat opposite the bar. It was hard to Cameron had only been there one week. We shared the smoke salmon (not frozen) board & Thai mussels - both were excellent. Also had the seared scallops & the scallop/lobster linguine - delicious. Finished off dinner with the salted, pecan caramel cheesecake - it rated 5 OMG! You have lots of excellent choices in Charlottetown but the M&M is top of our list for local seafood.More

The atmosphere was great, the service was great, but the food was decidedly meh. Not bad but nothing special in a city with incredible food. I would not bother.

We ate dinner and enjoyed the fish tacos. The fish was flavourful, the food was prepared freshly, and the staff was courteous!

GREAT setting, lots of seating, very tasty food. We tried the mussels, seafood chowder, pan seared halibut, chicken tacos, and salads all good, flavourful. Bigger pieces of chicken for the tacos would have been better or serve three tacos. Dessert portion small. Service friendly! Drinks...great!More

My wife and I did a visit to Merchantman Fresh Seafood & Oyster Bar and it was EXCELLENT . The server Julia was excellent with the menu items, including Cioppono which is Tomato and Herb Broth, Salmon, Haddock, Mussels, Steamed Clams, Shrimp, Scallops, and Crusty...Bread. It was A2. A2 is twice-as-good as A1. The Steamed Clams appetizer was GREAT as well. Her personality was great too. To anyone in Charlottetown PEI looking for a GREAT meal. GO to Merchantman Fresh Seafood & Oyster Bar.More
