Absolutely wonderful. Sticky date pudding is a must for everyone to try at least once in their life! Great service, friendly and prompt. Remembers regular customers very well too.

The wings were tasty and the rest of the food was ok. My husband ordered a Greek salad and started to put the dressing on when a green worm crawled up out and was dancing around...the waitress acted like it was no big deal or an everyday occurrence and took the salad back... Could have done more than take the... More

We had a wonderful meal and enjoyable evening last Saturday night. We arrived without reservations but had only to wait 10 minutes or so at the bar and the bartender was "entertaining" and efficient. The meal was excellent, from the wine, delicious mussels, to the steak and dessert; and our waitress - Amber - was exceptional! Our only negative comment... More

We really enjoyed our meal. Everything was tasty and well- prepared. Our only mistake was not reading the menus carefully. As a result, we go some items that we did not expect. Service was exceptional. Just one comment about our drinks: They were extremely sparse on alcohol. This happened to us on another night in PEI, which made us wonder... More

We ate at the Pilot House on a recent trip to Charlottetown. We would have preferred to sit on the patio, but the patio is very tiny and was already full so we were seated inside. The service was okay, but we were not at all impressed with the food itself. We both had fish and chips and found the... More

We sat at the bar both times for dinner to avoid the wait for a table, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The bartender is friendly and very efficient. I had the PEI blue mussels both time because they are sooo good. My husband had a Cajun salmon special tonight. I had the chocolate espresso torte for dessert - Trust me, this... More

Visited on Aug. 15. From Toni in the Queue Bar while we waited on a table, through dinner, we were treated like old friends. Toni had a wealth of information about PEI and since this was our first visit to the island, info was good. Even better than the service was the food. Everything was fresh, tasty and elegantly presented.... More

The service is excellent. Patrons are greeted as soon as they enter. Wait staff are very friendly and attentive. Food is consistently really good and available at reasonable prices. My favourite menu item is the chicken crepes. Bartender makes an awesome caesar. The patio is very nice and away from traffic. Always first restaurant I recommend to Island visitors.

I have been to the Pilot House many times in the past & it is by far one of my favourites in Charlottetown. Went again just a couple nights ago with my spouse, sister & brother-in-law. We were greeted as we walked in & were seated in a lovely booth in the front area. The décor is great & we... More

Went with my girlfriend on August 9th 2014. Had nachos and chicken wings as apps. Wings were delicious but nachos were cold and cheese was barely cooked. I ordered the burger with chowder and she ordered the grilled chicken sandwich. My burger wasn't very good at all, pretty dry and didn't meet expectations. Chowder was very good though. Her grilled... More
