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!

Bar is good. They have all kinds of stuff but I guess there might be a possibility of the chef is not a chef but a simple cook. So that's why you should only drink but not eat... Waitresses are kind though...

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
