First night dinner during our first visit to Charlottetown, and we were not disappointed. I called for a reservation the same evening; they were obviously busy, but managed to fit us in. It turned out that the person I spoke with on the phone was also our server. Despite being busy she still took time to talk with us, and... More

We stopped in for happy hour for the $1/oyster special and though the oysters where small the bang for your buck can not be beat and they were delicious. We sat for a couple dozen then went back the next day for 48. Great friendly service. Definitely stop by if you are in Charlottetown between 4pm and 6pm.

My husband and I weren't super hungry for dinner and I have been missing vegetables on this trip so I opted for the Kale Caesar and he had a pound of mussels. They were both fabulous. The restaurant is intimate and on the darker side so if you are looking for a light, bright patio style restaurant in Charlottetown, this... More

All of the food at this restaurant was amazing from our appetizers to dessert. Our waiter Bret went out of his way to ask the chef could make something for me without pork. All of the oysters are shucked in the bar area so you know it's fresh.

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
