Happened on this place on our first day exploring PEI, and were pleasantly surprised to find great food and service at this small pub/restaurant located inside the charming old rail station in Kensington. The special that day—a Caldo Verde soup, rich and hearty—let us know...immediately that these folks know their way around the kitchen. Service prompt. Salad was uber fresh, well constructed, and came with a nice, clean dressing that didn’t overwhelm. Burger and sweet potato fries solid. All in all, a great lunch.More

Came in without a reservation at 4:30 and got the last table. The waitress was very quick to move us when a quieter table became available. Nice, fun atmosphere. Service was great. We both had the fish tacos with fries and it was good.

We reserved a spot for 5 for Friday, Aug 18th for lunch at 2:00 pm. The place was packed, very noisy. I ordered the Burger with blue cheese and subbed sweet potato fries for the regular fries for a treat. We did wait quite awhile...for our meal, but really not an issue that day. Beside the staff that worked in the kitchen, I saw only one waitress, and maybe the owner who was delivering orders from the kitchen. Was not impressed with the burger... almost like the blue cheese, the mayo and the carmelized onions were actually a sauce.. dripping, very sloppy and very strong flavor from the cheese (and I do like blue cheese!) I separated the meat/sauce from the roll and used fork and knife to eat. The sweet potato fries were very brown, overcooked, and soggy. The waitress did not get back to our table to see if evrything was o.k. with our meal; she was very busy so I just let it go. I have only been there several times over the last few years and was hoping my experience would be better than the last time there. Didn't happen. Not impressed.More

I was driving through Kensington on my way to a different town, but having skipped lunch decided to stop for something to eat and I was happy I did. They were quite busy at the time, and booked up a bit later in the night...with reservations, but they were able to seat me at the bar. I was really happy with everything. The wait staff were all friendly and attentive. Watching some of the other orders come out of the kitchen, all the food looked very good. I ended up ordering a burger and poutine. Both were very good. I love a good, messy, juicy burger and that is exactly what I got. The poutine was also very good, with a really nice gravy and squeaky cheese. I didn't try any of the local beers on tap (driving) but they looked to have a very nice selection. Overall I was very happy with everything and would definitely go back.More

Delicious restaurant recommended by locals. The food and service was delicous. One thing I appreciated is the server gave recommendations rather than say all is good or whatever you have a taste for which happens. We had a starter of delicious kettle chips. My husband...had a Smokestack burger with fries and I had the classic station burger with village salad. Both were delicious, highly recommend this restaurant.More

we reserved for 6:45, we’re allowed in at 6:55. Two tables were open on the bar area and we were taken to back cramped dining area. With our food order our server took my husbands order for beer but me and our 11yr old daughter...sat thirsty u til my husband flagged her down running past and ignoring our table. After 40 minutes and watching everyone else around us eating, I asked our server when we could expect our dinner and she snapped at me they were busy. We decided to leave. No sooner did we get out the door did the owner jump out and say our food ‘was about to hit the table, but never mind, I can see we can’t do anything to please you tonight’. I didn’t even have a beverage. No one tried to even provide me basic service. Then some people he knew were coming in and there’s a spot for them reservations don’t matter and the staff are only as good as their boss.More

The owner Eric is so mean to his staff. I witnessed him openly scream and yell at one of his young female waitress to the point of tears. He is very unprofessional and down right verbally abusive. I asked her if she needed help and...she said please don't say anything it will just make it worse. Sounds like he does this on the regular.More

We dropped by ISP this weekend for our first visit of the season. Eric & Jamie are the best and the food never disappoints. This is a gastro pub that can hold its own against any other in any major city. Kudos guys for making...enjoyable home made food. Not to be disrespectful, but hard to believe a pub if this calibre lives in rural PEI.More

When you read a menu and you see "buffalo chicken wings"....are they going to compare to the original? I have tried wings all around the world and the Island Stone Pub wings....WOW....is all I have to say. After the first one, had to find out...if it was in-house sauce. Chef Jamie (she) nailed this dead on. Was my first time there but will definitely not be the last. Rank out 10.....solid 10 for the wings!!!!More
