Decided to try something different. The entrance is deceiving since it is two restaurants. Not an extensive menu, but they do everything well. Oysters were very fresh and our server, Cathy was an outstanding with a great knowledge of the menu. Walking distance from the Delta will make this a regular business travel dinner stop.

We traveled to Charlottetown for New Year's Eve, to help welcome the beginning of the province's sesquicentennial celebrations. There were fantastic things happening outside our hotel on George St., below the legislature and down to the harbour: ice sculptures, live music, fire pits, fireworks, a festive atmosphere, lots of people, COLD! We wanted a special dinner to complement the special... More

Ate at this restaurant for the first time in many years. They have redecorated the restaurant. Looks very nice. The food and service was excellent. Top notch. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to go out for a lovely meal. Well done!

Everything about my evening was great! The service was great, the food was amazing and the atmosphere was perfect. The boys knew their oysters and how to make the perfect martini. I would defiantly recommend going here. You will not be disappointed.

What an experience! Jenn, our server, was amazing and courteous... More

We ate here a few nights ago and it was wonderful. We had an early reservation (around 6:30) so the place was pretty empty. We had 2 each of every fresh oyster they and then skipped meals and went straight for dessert. I had the sorbet selection, they didn't have a selection that night but they did have house made...

Not the cheapest restaurant in town, but excellent food, excellent service and a pleasant atmosphere. Reasonable wines and, being attached to the pub upstairs, a nice selection of beer. Even my wife, who won't normally touch oysters, loved my Oysters Rockefeller. Fresh, sweet and perfect.

Great food, the waitress was from originally from Ontario which is were we are from. Good service. Our group was 16 people and I think we all had something different, no one was disappointed. Very good experience.

Recommended by several folks for their oysters this part was worth the visit. Good steamed mussels and good Irish Coffee. The salmon entree was overcooked, however, and that oversight keeps Claddagh from a Very Good rating. The service was great.
