Oh my, the service was exceptional. Have been here before but this time we had reservations for supper. From the lady guiding us to our table, server taking our orders, drinks, to dessert it was truly exceptional. The food is delicious & arrived promptly. Our server had a great sense of humour and we had a wonderful evening.

What a hidden gem we found at the Pilot House on our day in Charlottetown a couple of weeks back...the deck!! We were wandering the downtown streets looking for a place to sit outside for a few early evening cocktails and oysters, and most all the decks we saw were on the sidewalks of busy streets, some even jutting out...

we were staying in a hotel just around the corner so this place was really convenient. Seated immediately we arrived. High stools near the bar. Good atmosphere, seemed popular with the locals. Steaks were well cooked, good quality and well presented. Our server was attentive and friendly. We both had cheesecake for dessert. Reasonable wine choices.

Beef and scallops were good. Our waitress was helpful and attentive without being obtrusive. The atmosphere is nice and pubby. There were lots of local people, always a good indicator.

Nice atmosphere in the pub side, service was good, not a bad range of beers or wine. Mussels coconut/curry sauce was excellent. But a bit on the steep side. I had the Lamb shanks which were very good----but lamb shanks are a pretty cheap cut. Still would defo go back

The staff was very knowledge about the full menu, all the beer's on tap plus the wine menu. The curry chicken mac & cheese was so good I think there was 8 orders just from our table. So I just want to thank Richard Court and his staff for the great service. I will be back.

Awesome atmosphere for drinks and great food. Local ingredients and innovative menu. Chef Jared Acorn doesn't over complicate his food, something I find very refreshing. Our new "go too", for downtown dining!
