We popped into Brakish for a late lunch. We each had fish and chips and they were tasty. We received quick service and they were friendly.

We decided to stop at Brackish for supper while on a visit to Charlottetown. When we arrived, the only tables left were in the far corner of the yard--far away from the other diners. The person seating us helped moved the table into view of...the wait staff and brought us menus and assured us the waitress would be along shortly. But we waited a half hour and no one arrived. Before just getting up and leaving (which we saw others do, and who can blame them?), we asked the person who seated us where the waitress was. And it turns out she'd disappeared and no one new where he'd gone. So the person seating us apologized profusely and said she'd wait on us instead. And what service! Not only was she quick, kind, attentive, and on the ball, she also spoke to the manager who wanted to comp all our drinks. I ordered a white wine and she encouraged me to try a sangria, and then brought me a glass of wine and a *pitcher* of sangria and, due to a mixup, another waiter also brought me a glass of wine. It was way over and above what they needed to do to make up for the wait. I couldn't possibly finish it all! The food was great, arrived hot and on time, and we were taken care of very attentively. I'm so glad we didn't get up to leave and instead spoke to the person who seated us. She is a real gem and an asset to the restaurant, and gave us great tips on where to visit. We'll be back next year for sure!More

Nice sunny sheltered location. We sat outside and thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. Excellent servers. I had the fish tacos and they were the best I have ever had. Absolutely delicious! Family had the lobster roll and enjoyed them too.

We made a reservation for 10+ just after 11am. We were told there would be no problem. Our evening meal took almost two hours (I genuinely lost track, some of our group claimed 2+ hrs). The staff apologized but more than half a dozen other...tables were also without food during this period. It was all very unfortunate especially because it was predictable. Still, the food and drink were pretty good and there are games in the patio section for kids young and old. The venue is on the water and on a nice summer evening, with no large groups in sight, I'm sure it's very enjoyable. For us on this particular night, less so.More

The lobster roll is top notch and it would be a great place to bring kids with all the games set up. Don’t mind the creaking picnic tables — they won’t fall down. We had a very fun serverMore

Worst service I have ever received in a restaurant. I have never experienced staff caring less about customer service in my life. Seemed quite disorganised, everyone was moving, but without any real purpose. Fish and chips were good. Nachos were horrible and drenched in a...sauce the consistency of soup. Setting was great. But again, service was atrocious.More

Cold blueberry ale an order of garlicky PEI mussels under a shady umbrella on a hot humid afternoon and you’re good to go. Service was relaxed but attentive. Worth a return trip while there are many around. Well priced, quiet relaxed vibe

The food was average, nothing different from several other places, and the beer was standard fare. Server started out fairly good, but quickly became inattentive so we had to wait around for more service, so decided to go elsewhere. Although we were sitting inside, it...was quite cool, so that everyone had a sweater or blanket on. Menus were soiled and water-marked and server slopped both of our drinks. What a letdown.More

Our evening at Brackish was superb. We went out to supper with friends to celebrate a glorious sunny hot PEI day. We were seated on the deck with a view of the ocean and a cruise ship floating by. We enjoyed delicious local PEI flavours...including the lobster and shrimp poutine ( highly recommend.). We also had some of the most refreshing gin, cucumber and black pepper cocktails. Between dinner and dessert we took our cocktails out and enjoyed a rousing game of corn hole. Brackish is a fun outdoor atmosphere with live music, people laughing and friendly service. This is definitely one of our favourite PEI restaurants!More
