Fantastic sea food, cozy atmosphere

My wife and I loved the seafood chowder! It had a light broth that was seafood buttery heaven, and the large chunks of seafood (lobster claw meat, scallops, mussels and more) were perfectly cooked. We also enjoyed an oyster sampler platter, with oysters from various locations around the island. The... read more

The food was good but the atmosphere is a little dark. Wait staff is good. Great spot to enjoy television and catch a game but not a spot to go if you want to be outside.

Wandered up here after a long day of traveling and it was the start of their dinner (supper to islanders) service. Top notch service and food! We enjoyed the mussels, steak and lobster. They catered to our gluten and dairy issues with grace. We will be back!

We chose this restaurant to have our last meal, closing our vacation in PEI... And what an amazing choice. Everything we ate was delicious. In terms of apps, from the lobster risotto which boasted BIG pieces of lobster, to the nice choice of oysters, it was all delicious. Our mains consisted of the surf and turf, the crispy skin salmon... More

All the food here was delicious but the seafood, particularly the steamed PEI mussels and local oysters on the half shell, was the star of the show. The service was friendly and helpful. The menu has a good variety of salads and appetizers. Don't miss the wonderful sticky date pudding for dessert .

We had a wonderful meal in a spacious and attractive dining room . The tables and booths surround an oyster bar and a beautiful water feature . It was a hot night so the coolness of the air and the visual appeal of the water wall was most appealing . Our server was friendly and professional . We had the... More

Beautiful setting in a beautiful little town in a beautiful region of Canada. Food is great, service is great. Right in the heart of downtown Charlottetown. Great spot for a romantic dinner for two , or a party of 6. Menu is organized and food is sophisticated. Prices are a little steep but that's the cost of going to P.E.I.... More

I love things I've never tried before and wow was I blown away. When I saw jerk spiced crab legs I had to at least try. Am I ever glad I did. It was a messy feast and so flavourful. They were cooked to perfection. Surf and turf was also excellent. Amazing dessert as well. Can't wait to go back!

I liked the atmosphere in this place, with the little waterfall thing inside (sorry, I'm not very floral with my language here). Food was good, first time trying raw oysters and I guess I'm not a fan of those, but I really did enjoy my salmon dish :) Service was good, our waitress was lovely.
