Hi, My student and I were not too courageous. However, we were brave enough to try the raw oysters on the half shell. Yes, one each !! Next time we will have several.

These guys nail it every time! I had salad and oysters and they were fresh and delicious. The servers are knowledgeable and friendly. The "waterfall sign" inside the elegant dining/bar area makes a chic statement. This family-owned business is one of my downtown favorites. I only wish they had a wider selection of wines.

We went for the oysters and were not disappointed. Sitting at the bar my husband enjoyed a platter of three different types of raw oysters--his choice--and thought all were superb. I loved my Oysters Rockefeller - Delicious! The draft beers were cold and tasty. Our bartender was quite a lovely personality! Great Evening out.

My spouse made... More

Dinner for four, service was lovely. Great food from appies to coffee and dessert. We were treated like special friends the entire evening. You really do not get this whole experience often. Would recommend highly and we will go back on our next trip east.

In the .older part of town but accessible and only a short walk from parking areas - we did not have a reservation - but - they found an open table for us'. Clean and an acceptable atmosphere. Our male waiter was quite good and service was good. The food was above average but a bit pricey. For those of... More

Doesn't get much ch better than this.... My wife and I have travelled the world and done a great deal of fine dinning. Great to know that relatively small Charlottetown can compete with the likes of NYC and Toronto....

Right in downtown Charlottetown, not two blocks from the Great George. A bustling spot for tourists, and a great place to plan or recap your day in town.
