If you love oysters, a great spot to eat, ambiance very nice, good to go to for special occasion, or with a whole gang. Menu solid, a little bit of everything

Dining room is small but is really upscale with a cool water feature bar. Our waitress was knowledgeable on her oysters and gave us some delicious cheddar biscuits to try. Oysters were all from PEI I believe, we sampled Malpeque, Lucky Limes, Raspberry and Blackberry Points at $3 a pop. Main courses we had the spaghetti carbonara and pork belly/scallop... More

The seating in this restaurant is very small. We had reservations so we were able to procure a table next to the encased water feature. We went here based on a recommendation because of the variety of raw oysters served. That was the highlight of our dining experience.Menu is limited, and although the entrees were presented nicely, and the food... More

We arrived late in the day not long before the kitchen was closing so limited ourselves to appetizers. Excellent selection of fresh Prince Edward Island Oysters. Too bad I didn't get there during happy hour when they were a buck apiece. Great kale caesar salad and quahog special. Lobster risotto was excellent.

Food and service was very good. Oysters and lobster roll were quite nice. Hamburger was not only well done (meeting Canadian standards), but burned and tasteless. Perhaps all hamburgers in Canada where the meat is not ground in house are tasteless as well.

Quaint pub atmosphere and friendly wait staff. Lots of great choices for fresh seafood and pub fare. Did not have diner but tried several appetizers, oysters Rockefeller, bacon wrapped scallops (which were amazing) and mushrooms stuffed with crab. Didn't have room left for dinner, unfortunately.

We are here in August 2014 and came back to Charlottetown in 2015. This restaurant was on the must do again list. Awesome food and service.

What a great experience! The food, service and atmosphere was excellent! Our waitress was knowledgeable and caring especially when I told her I never ate an oyster before. The Oysters Rockefeller I was served was wonderful. Everything that was prepared for us was excellent. By far, the best meal we have had on our Maritimes vacation!
