The upstairs patio is super spacious and comfortable. We felt like we were in our own backyard during a visit for a late night after dinner drink.

I don't quite know why the ratings are so low. I went there with my mother and we are both very pleased with our dinner. The salmon was excellent with a crusty salty skin and the veggies where excellent, fresh and well seasoned. Quite pleased...More

Was in Charlottetown on a vacation and wanted to find a restaurant close to our B&B. This place was really nice. Food was delicious, and there was entertainment on the street across the street. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere.More
