We visited the Brickhouse on a friday evening for dinner. The two lower levels were booked so we were seated on the third floor in Marc's Lounge. From the looks of things, it was a bit more casual but the menu was the same and...I can't imagine the service being any better. Our waitresses were attentive and friendly and seemed genuinely pleased to serve us. We had some time to spend and were pleased that we were not rushed and in fact felt very welcome to sit and enjoy the evening. The back ground music was not live, but was very pleasant and when we commented that we liked it, one of the waitresses made a point to tell us what we were hearing. AND THEN... The food. It was delicious. It was perfectly prepared and fresh and hot. Both my companion and I ordered seafood (haddock and scallops) and it was perfectly cooked. The seasonings were exactly right. The roasted Brussels sprouts were so good , even my friend who doesn't like Brussels sprouts loved them. I ordered the Seared Scallop Orecchiette and it was one of the most delicious meals I have ever eaten in my life.More

Charlottetown really has a vibrant dining scene and tonight I decide to give this Bistro a try. The restaurant was located in one of these cute historic buildings. It was the pre-Thanksgiving weekend and things were sort of busy in the restaurant. I saw the...host turning away guests with no reservation. Tonight I tried the Island mussels with white wine and garlic sauce starter, which was fresh and tasty, and the PEI striploin "steak frites," which was lovely. I ordered it medium rare and it was cooked perfectly. My only minor complaint is that the fries were not crispy enough. In general, Brickhouse is a nice restaurant and is worthwhile for a visit. Once again, you need to make a reservation in advance, especially during dinners and the weekends.More

On Saturday, July 24th, my family went to The Brickhouse Kitchen and Bar in Charlottetown just before 5:00 p.m. for an early dinner. There were 5 of us, 4 adults and a baby. While the family waited outside, I entered to enquire if there was...room to set up our granddaughter’s stroller during dinner. I was told by the young man working there that there wasn’t space available for a stroller so I asked if a high chair was available and I was told that there was. I went outside to tell the rest of the party to come in, but when we came inside together, we were told by the young man working at the door, the host, we presume, “You know what? I don’t think that we can make it work.” The restaurant was almost empty at the time, with one table occupied on the bottom floor and, it appeared that only one was occupied on the upper level. When we brought this to his attention, he said that they had a number of reservations coming in, starting at 6:00 (over an hour from the current time). Another young man, a server, we believe, said to the young man at the front, “What about table 40 (I think)?”. The host said no. My daughter asked how long a wait for a table would be and was told that he couldn’t give us a wait time because people with reservations would start to arrive at 6:00. We were not even told that we could have a table but we would have to leave by a certain time. We obviously left, very discouraged by the treatment received as it felt as if, until the family appeared at the door, we were welcome. We left the restaurant and while only a few minutes away, I called the restaurant and the phone was answered by a young lady. I asked if there were any tables available immediately for 5 people. She confirmed that yes, we could come in. We didn’t come in, of course, as we weren’t welcome, but I would have liked to have heard the young man’s excuse when we showed up at the door. The man at the door (no name tag but was young with dark, longish hair) is not the person who should be employed in that position unless you are comfortable having potential patrons judged at the door. As it turns out, we did give the Murphy Hospitality Group our business while on PEI that weekend. We ate at The Gahan House on the 23rd and ended up at The Merchantman after we weren’t welcomed into The Brickhouse on Saturday night. Our food and service at the other establishments were great and, until now, we have always felt that if we chose a restaurant in the Murphy Group, we could be confident that we would have a good experience. Because of one employee at one of your restaurants, our overall impression has changed.More

I highly recommend the fish in this restaurant. It is simply amazing. Average main dish is about 30 CAD . I recommend you call in advance and reserve because it is usually full. The staff is very friendly

Used to have good appies. Now food is terrible, had a chicken sandwich there and could have cobbled something better at home. Was the quality of getting a chicken sandwich and caesar salad aboard an airline. Don't recommend.

We have been in the area for only a couple of months. We happened on this place with great character good food attentive service. There are three floors and could likely accommodate any group even with Covid restrictions in place. We went mid week and...if you want a nice place with great architecture and welcoming, this should work well.More
