Seafood preparations were not as tasty as advertised. The service was also slow. The place is small and finding a parking close by can be a challenge. The prices are also on the higher side.

We chose the Claddagh Oyster House based on the Tripadvisor rating, and were very happy we did. On the small side, but very atmospheric, with excellent service. We ordered 25 oysters of mixed type to begin; our server was knowledgeable about the types we were eating and where they came from. Frankly, after a dozen oysters a piece, we were... More

In a time when so many chefs try to create masterpieces with too many ingredients, it was nice to just enjoy the taste of the food. Oysters: a Dozen presented with a small card noting where on PEI each came from. Fresh. Perfect. Mussels in tomato broth with fennel and a spicey sausage: Excellent. Great little biscuits to go with... More

I was in Charlottetown for less than a week and I had dinner here twice. The seafood was outstanding. I had oysters, scallops and others in my party raved about the chowder...I mean raved. The atmosphere is warm and the service was friendly. They have a very nice wine list with lots of selections that match very well with the... More

I had made reservations based on the reviews but when we arrived it seemed like it was going to be in a dingy basement and questioned my choice, only to open the doors and proceed in to find a beautiful restaurant with a beautiful ambience, not to mention that the food was outstanding. We had many oysters, kale ceasar salad,... More

I just had to get the oysters since they are known for them. A bit pricey if you go for dinner but they have a special earlier in the day. I had the halibut dinner which was very good. My husband had the rack of lamb which he loved.

I dream of the Lobster Risotto served at the Claddagh Oyster House all winter long. It is absolutely one of the very first places we go when we get back to our cottage in PEI in the summer. This time around we also tried the Lobster Cobb Salad and the Seafood Stew. All the dishes were fantastic. I wish I... More

This place is so awesome, they have a great variety of oysters which I love and they have the best salads, the kale Cesar is addictive and the lettuce, avocado, lobster salad is awesome. The sticky date pudding is AMAZING. Had to go back again at the end of the trip because you crave that dessert.

Claddagh Oyster House has oysters for $1 each starting at 4:00 PM, my buddy and I got a dozen, quick service, because we had to be back on the cruise ship by 4:30 that afternoon.
