We were visiting near Charlottetown and other reviews made us want to give this place a try. The restaurant itself seemed pretty small so i was glad we had a reservation on a busy Friday night. The decor of the restaurant is nice. Our server was very attentive and friendly and helpful. We had never tried oysters before and she... More

It was the Fall Flavours menu the week we travelled to PEI and before we left decided to book the Claddagh Oyster House for our first night. It was absolutely one of the best meals I have ever had! It started with carrot soup with seared scallops. The scallops were cooked to perfection and combined with the soup, just amazing.... More

After reading all the great reviews on Claddagh, we were really looking forward to a great meal to cap off our trip in the Maritimes. It started well enough, but unfortunately turned negative once I indicated my main course had an issue. The ambience and service to start were good. It's a nice restaurant with a good vibe and filled... More

We had made reservations but ended up popping in earlier when we saw their happy hour specials. I had a blueberry Martini and six oysters for about 14 dollars. The atmosphere was great and festive, the service was FATASTIC (Thanks to Carol who just moved over from Ireland) and the food was very good. I did find the portion and... More

We went here on our first night in Charlottetown! It was definitely the best seafood I have ever tasted. We were a party of 4 and ordered lobster, oysters and salmon. They were to die for! This was also my first time having lobster and I wish I ordered more than 1 lb. The others had lobster many times before... More

Freshest oysters, scallops, mussels, lobster--all are on offer in Charlottetown, of course. But this--the Claddagh Oyster House--is on the list of not-to-be-missed experiences. Starting with a selection of perfectly presented fresh oysters from the various local bays, good wines, and then perfectly butter-seared scallops combined with shrimp, excellent bacon, local fingerling potatoes with character and presence, and sauteed greens in...

We went here with a group for dinner, and there were no complaints about the food at all. I had a delicious steak, cooked to perfection and to my request, and my husband had the halibut, which he was completely happy with. Great atmosphere and a place to make special memories!

Great service, amazing food and a cozy atmosphere all for incredible value. We are from Charlottetown and choose the Claddagh as one of our top choices - if you are new to oysters, knowledgeable staff will guide you through. If you don't like oysters\seafood, no worries the menu is well balanced for everyone's needs.
