Description: The Merchantman Fresh Seafood & Oyster Bar is a warm, cozy and inviting atmosphere. The restaurant has undergone a beautiful renovation and in doing so all the original 130 year old brick has been restored throughout the building. We strive to provide fresh and local product to the best of our ability. The Merchantman excels in seafood, and local favourites. If its Oysters that your after, look no further, our raw bar has a wide selection of local Oysters from Malpeque Bay all the way to Colville Bay and everywhere in between. So the next time your looking for a great evening out, be sure to stop by the Merchantman!

“Great place for dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014 NEW

Visited this place with 2 Coworkers and had a really nice dinner. We shared a couple orders of really nice mussels, and had lobster for dinner. Great service and really good food at a reasonable price.

“Great vibe, great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014 NEW

We visited this place twice on a recent trip to Charlottetown. The service was extremely friendly and efficient, both times the food was delicious. The atmosphere is charming and has a vibe that doesn't really exist out west. This is a favourite place to visit and we will be returning on our next trip to PEI.

“Good food and good scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014 NEW

Very well prepared seafood dished. Fresh fish, lobster, clams, oysters etc. service is good and prices are moderate. Consequently, the dining room fills up quickly. In summer time, dining on outdoor patios is very enjoyable.

“A Delightful Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014 NEW via mobile

A while back I wrote a scathing review on this restaurant as it was changing ownership. Well we decided to give it another try. A 360degree turn. The food of which I had a steak sandwich was perfect. The server was ever so delightful, very accommodating and with a perfect sense of humour. The food, aambiance and service were great amd I will be revisiting this delightful pub restaurant again in the near future. A must stop in Charlottetown.
