Was absolutely blown away by this restaurant. We went on a double date, and we got some drinks and had a fine dining experience, food was quick, and prices were just right. Will definitely be back.

Popes in for a quick bite to eat. Relaxed, unassuming, beautiful pub with a good menu range of reasonable price. Attentive waitstaff and garrulous bar staff. Offering the local brew, Gahan, with a good wine list. If I had time I would definitely go back, especially for the crab cakes!

Got in town late Friday night and needed a quick meal close to our hotel. The Pilot house exceeded our expectations. Great upscale pub food - actually hesitate to call it pub food. Was really good. Home made Mulligatawny Soup of the Day was fantastic. Service was prompt, friendly and attentive. Great meal!

After a week of eating at some very nice restaurants around the island, this was our last dinner in PEI. It was a fitting end. Our meal was delicious. I had the filet mignon medium rare and my wife had the lobster fettuccine. Both were very good. My steak was slightly more medium than rare but my wife's fettuccine was... More

Friendly, excellent service with an extremely varied menu with something for everyone. Try the pizzas if you're in the mood for something light. They come with a side salad -- Greek or Caesar. The wait staff was friendly and attentive without being obtrusive. Very nice atmosphere for families or couples. Would definitely recommend it.

They always have a couple of lunch of the day. Really good fish. A little pricey for lunch good menu. Not a lot of options for kids.

This was our absolute favorite restaurant when we visited Charlottetown in 2011. The fish and chips were the best my husband had ever had, and the blackened salmon with lobster sauce that I had was amazing even if it was a bit pricey. I'm not sure if they changed the menu but our honeymoon visit this July left us disappointed.... More

Average food but the atmosphere was fun. Staff was friendly when we ate there for lunch during a work conference.

Friendly server and prompt service. Sampled the local oysters - very good, nice bottle of wine recommended to us. Decided on the fish & fries for main, good, but not spectacular. Very pleasant evening, despite not having any cappuccino available. Maybe because it was only June they were closing at 9.00 pm
