For the oyster lover in you.

To say I'm addicted to oysters is an understatement. So, when it came time to choose a trip to celebrate my 50th birthday, I decided to do a self-guided oyster tour of PEI (I live in New Jersey, so this wasn't exactly around the corner). The Claddagh was where I decided to go on our first night... read more

Went there many times in the tourism season. It is a busy place, you either go there 5pm or call quite early to reserve. The steak, scallop, oyster and beer are quite good. They don't open for lunch.

Looks like a bar when you enter, but don;t let that put you off. I had some of the best seafood I've ever eaten here.

Came here when we saw the original place we wanted to go to was closed and what a happy surprise. We ordered a bunch of apps and we were not disappointed. My faves were the kale Caesar salad and the white wine mussels. My boyfriend is a scotch lover and the prices here are great. Definitely would recommend this place!

Never been disappointed by the food or the service. Great spot for tasting a variety of the best of the Island's oysters. Good wine pairings with their seafood dishes, nice ambience, great little spot.
