I tried 5 of the 7 oyster varieties offered this evening. Perfect, fresh, local--All different, all delicious! Plenty of lobster in the risotto. Huge serving of clams, simple and perfect. Best meal in our week in the Maritime provinces. Good value on a South African Chardonnay. Our server was knowledgeable, personable, professional

Our server Kip was very helpful, and everything including the South African wine was great. Lobster risotto was fabulous, and the oysters and mussels were top notch.

My son and I ate there last week. The food was very good - not the best meal I have ever had in my life, but solidly good. We started with the mussels - we were a bit disappointed there was no crusty bread to dip into the white wine/garlic sauce, but oh well! It was still very good. We... More

My friend had gourmet macaroni and cheese. I had a salad with beets, goat cheese and a tomoto soup of the day - absolutely yummy! The food is really awesome - out of the ordinary options. The décor for the price, however, is not to my taste. More bistro style with most tables placed very close together. I live in... More

We went with another couple and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. The atmosphere was good and the service was excellent. We all went with the Winterdine tenderloin steak dinner - probably the best steak dinner we've had in a restaurant. Perfectly done, tender, juicy and extremely tasty. The shrimp appetizers were fantastic too and the evening would have been complete... More

We have gone to the Claddagh many times over the years, and have seldom been disappointed. Sometimes it is quite noisy even with only the dinner crowd...the old brick walls may have something to do with it.
