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

Ate here on our recent vacation... we arrived quite late, at about 8:50pm and there were only a couple of other tables in use. We were a party of 4 and all ordered the 14.99 6 oz. steak special. It wasn't that special. My steak had a lot of gristle, the baked potatoe was just "ok" and the side salad... More

Ate at Gentlemen Jims on Sunday since many other restaurants were closed. Very busy since there was a bus tour dining there. Had turkey special & wife had shrimp-lobster stir fry which arrived piping hot & very tasty .Quantity & quality both very good. Side show is to watch manager & son take care of customers. Never seen anyone work... More

Was down in PEI in July and this restaurant was recommended to us. It was a nice clean Family style restaurant and the owner was walking through talking with guests. The menu had a great selection and the food was very good. The servers were very friendly and seemed to enjoy their jobs.

I think the name of this place is Gentleman Jim's. It located by the mall and we were told by local friends that the food was good. I had a lobster cocktail and seafood chowder which were both excellent. My companions also enjoyed their meals.

On our trip to Summerside, we were disappointed to see many places not open for the season yet, so went to Gentleman Jim's. Very disappointing. The potato skins consisted of twice-baked, dried out potato wedges with cheese and bacon. The fish cakes were more potato then fish, and the haddock fish and chips were very average.

I asked the server if the Clam Chowder was made with 'real' PEI or Atlantic Clams and not 'canned' clams from some East Asian country. He said they were local. WRONG......I could tell by seeing and tasting them. Way tooooooo small for local. Tiny baby clams that you would find from a can of baby clams from 'You Know Where'.... More

We booked well in advance to celebrate a family event, and had about 20 people in our party. Restaurant wasn't my choice. My meal was OK, could've got the same thing at a fast food joint, and none of the other meals I saw looked that good that I thought, "Should have ordered that." One person that had the beef... More

We ate here twice in two days. The restaurant came recommended to us by our B & B hosts. The food was rather average. The food was lukewarm. Certainly nothing outstanding. Probably more disturbing was the lacklustre service. On both nights, the restaurant was almost empty. Our waitress was less than welcoming. We ate there as it was open quite... More

Our meal here was probably the least expensive of any on our recent trip to PEI and Nov Scotia, so in that regard, it was good value. I got the mussels and a salad, and my husband got the chowder and one of the dinner specials. Nothing stood out as particularly good or bad, including the service.
