Wonderful environment for hanging out and having a few drinks. The food looked wonderful, but I did not personally order any. The bar tenders were very friendly and fun. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area.

I chose the special, steak and bacon wrapped halibut. Mistake! Usually the food is good, not great but good. I was very disappointed this time . Told server but nothing offered as compensation. I'll think twice about my choice of restaurants next time I'm dining in Charlottetown which is probably 30 times a year. I chose to submit this review... More

Had excellent waiter and he put up well with our large rambunctious group. Entrees were delicious and finishing off with the sticky toffee pudding was heavenly!

My family group of five visited on a Friday night, our contribution to "Winter Dine". We had a squash, parsnip and ale soup to start, a steak and veg entree and a chocolate mousse and tea for dessert. The soups excellent, even my wife, a dyed-in-the-wool hater of parsnips agreed it was good, so that settles that. The steak was... More

the wait-staff is extraordinary - nice, professional, knowledgeable. The food is skimpy, and hit and miss for quality. Tried the place once, and had a fairly good meal. Next night - even though the waitress returned it once, it was still poor quality, and the amount was pathetic. Nice staff though.

Visited in December while visiting the Island. This was a favourite of mine previously but was disappointed this trip. Service was good. Food not so much. My partner had fish & chips and the batter for fish was wet so made the fish soggy. Not great. I had steak sandwich asked for medium came well done. Not good and no... More
