My partner and I headed to The Pilot House after many recommendations, so we decided we should really try it out. We had a lovely server, but the service was very slow. We waited 10 minutes before we had our drinks brought over. We the crab cakes as an appetizer, and though it was really delicious, all of the other... More

Travelling around PEI, I have become used to not being immediately greeted by a host/hostess when I enter a restaurant. This general negligence is rampant all over the island, and the Pilot House is no different. At least at most restaurants, once you are acknowledged, you are with genuine friendliness. Not so at the Pilot House. I'm not sure why... More

I like that here you have three choices where to eat. They have a dining room, reservations recommended. They have two pubs one you can make a reservation it's called the Que and the othe pub is where people gather first come, first served. Food is mid priced and excellent any time we have been there! .

the food in the pub side is great, the atmosphere is comfortable and service prompt. We enjoy the pub side more than the dining room, but that's personal preference. Always enjoy it here.

We had no reservation for this restaurant, but we were seated in a very nice part of the room, and had a wonderful waiter. Plus, the food was excellent. Highly recommend!

On a moody Thursday afternoon, with rain pelting down outside, we took refuge inside The Pilot House. They have an impressive line-up of local beers--as indicated by every seat around the bar being taken! Our server introduced us to the likes of Barnone founded by a father and son duo in Rose Valley, PEI. The Summer Sessions is bright and... More

We had noticed the beautiful outdoor patio at this restaurant and decided to try it out for dinner. We ordered the seafood chowder to share as an appetizer. The chowder was an embarrassment for Prince Edward Island. It contained miniature shrimp and bay scallops. There were also clams as well as white fish but they were hard to find. The... More
