Had two meals here early September. The food was good, service a little slow and the tables were too close together. We were staying on Grafton Street so this was really convenient to have dinner here.

My husband and I went to the Pilot House to catch up with old friends over dinner. We had a lovely table in the corner of the dining room and although the restaurant was full we felt like we could chat and catch up. I had the halibut special that evening. It was delicious. We all enjoyed our dinner and... More

Short walk to & from made our 1st meal in PEI memorable. Very good meal, with great service. Try the Parmesan Crusted Haddock.

This place is in the top five Canadian restaurants we like. We haven't been too impressed so far with Canada in general with their food. Especially seafood. We have been traveling through Canada for 6 weeks. But PEI we have found really fresh seafood and not fried. Now back to The Pilot House. Excellent service, great seafood salad. Great seafood...

The staff at our hotel recommended this to us when we asked for "low key" dining. It was just like a neighborhood pub -- folks at the bar who seemed to know each other, diners at small tables and booths enjoying wonderful, creative-but-not-weird food. Our waiter was friendly and attentive, without being overbearing; the food was delicious; and despite being... More

We ordered appetizers - crab cakes and mozzarella sticks - and entrees - salmon and steak frites. Everything was fine and the service was friendly. The fries were a bit overcooked and not very hot, the salmon was pretty spicy for my liking and had a lot of spices on it. Was surprised that they only offered 3 PEI brewed... More
