Ordered Fish - NOT Hair !

We're in Summerside for a while and went here for dinner a few nights ago. I ordered Fish and Chips and my wife ordered Seafood Casserole. Our young waitress kept repeating 'thank you for being patient, we're really busy' over and over and over ! Finally our meal came and when 2/3 through I moved... read more

This poor restaurant needs a makeover, and no mistake. We were here for the "Burger Love" campaign that runs on PEI every April. It was disappointing, to say the least. It feels like this is one of those older restaurants that runs through its "heyday" and just slowly settles into decrepitude. If you are a visitor to PEI, or to... More

Our experience at gentlemen Jims is buy far the worse place we've eating. The food was pathetic. I'm not sure what was worse, the food or the server her self. She was extremely rude and unfriendly. It was as if we were a bother. My boyfriend and I's meals were the size of a child's meal.for the price we paid... More

We travelled from Charlottetown to visit family in Summerside and stopped in for breakfast / lunch (wasn't sure what they would be serving as it was 5 min. to 11:00). Our server came over quickly and had her pad and pencil ready for our order and let us know she had two items: 3 eggs, all the meat, home fries... More

We walked in with low expectations and they were met. Wife choose a burger as a safe bet and she said it was OK but nothing special. Portion was ample with a large pile of unsalted fries that appeared to have come from a freezer. I took a chance on fish cakes and chowder. There were two generous cakes that... More

A friend and I stayed overnight in Summerside and went to Gentlemen Jim's for Sunday breakfast. The place was maybe half full. After a 10 minute wait the waitress arrived without a menu ready to take our orders. We ordered the same, eggs, meat, toast, grilled potatoes, and coffee which we got right away. After waiting half and hour and... More

We had the best service at this restaurant. Our server left an impression. She was attentive, paid attention to our order and would be around to replenish drinks without you having to ask. She also helped in making choices. I like it when the server has tried the food on the menu and can give you the 411 on what... More
