Local recommended this place to us.

After wandering around Charlottetown for a while a local shopkeeper recommended this place to our family. We were lucky to get a table outside right away. It is fairly small, and very busy. The seafood chowder was good, not great, but the muscles were absolutely amazing. The lobster dinner came... read more

Small unpretentious place, reasonable prices. You're really packed into seating, close to others, all of whom were friendly the night I was there. I did not have a reservation but was accomodated. I had the lobster, yum. My husband loved desert.

You could easily walk by this and not realize that it was a charming place to eat with well above average food. The food is fresh, locally sourced and prepared on-site. The staff is friendly, informed, and helpful. As a single I chose to eat outside at one of the sunny picnic tables. They cheerfully brought my order and left... More

The place was packed and reservations are recommended. There is a wait in line period but well worth it. Fish and chips was delicious and affordable. Take out lobster is a plus. Choose your lobster in the aquarium and it can be cooked and ready to go in no time and the price is great! I recommend.

I'm in from Miami and I tried to eat here last week after reading fish and chip reviews but when I got there the waitress told me they were out of batter so I would not be able to have the halibut. I asked how they could be out of batter that early and I got no answer from the... More

Staff was nice, loved the atmosphere, food was just OK. Felt like fast food (in taste and quality) but with high end prices.

Not much to look at from the outside but the food was amazing. Don't be disappointed and make sure you have a reservation. The lobster dinner was super and the staff so friendly. I highly recommend.

Ordered mussels in a very packed restaurant. Expected a long wait and maybe 10-12 for the price. Wrong on both counts. Came quickly and in a pile so high they more than filled the bowl and me. Great taste and hot. Service may have been the friendliest we have ever accounted. I am sure the lobster was great as we... More

Surrounded by water it would probably be hard to find lobster that wasn't fresh, so that needs no comment. However, a meal at this restaurant is more of an experience, than just a meal. The decor is eclectic with photos, licence plates, and maritime art decorating all surfaces. The tables are close and it is difficult to have a meal... More
