We loved the atmosphere and the exceptionally quick and friendly staff. Food was good. Although we werent able to sit on the patio, it seems to be a great location.

We had a great table front and centre with comfy arm chairs. Our server Anita was friendly and attentive. My husband didn't like the beer he chose and she offered to bring another which he turned down and said he chose it and not her...fault if he didn't like the peachy taste. When she brought our bill she had generously comped the beer. Not necessary but very thoughtful. The corn flake battered fish was yummy.More

Stumbled across this spot while touring Charlottetown and were pleasantly surprised. There were 6 of us and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Those that had drinks were very happy with both local brew and specialty drinks......don't walk by.

We had the loveliest night on the roof with great food and exceptional service. Emma absolutely blew us away and made our entire experience with her friendly demeanour and great menu recommendations. The personal touch and care she took really stood out. Definitely ask for...Emma to be your server if you come to eat at fishbones oyster bar !!More

The location is great for outdoor dining and watching the local talent on the outdoor stage. Service was good and beer was nice and cold

This past weekend SO and I had a sunset supper on the Fishbones Victoria Row patio (not rooftop). We probably should have sat inside as it was a little chilly, but that was our fault. Service was slower in the beginning- we waited a bit...to get our order taken, but I'm attributing it mostly to covid protocols slowing people down and the end of the supper rush. Aside from this, the service was good- hit all the boxes but nothing outstanding. I got a lobster BLT and SO got a lobster roll, both of which came with fries- we also split some oysters. The oysters were good- but I suspect, as a DP Murphy restaurant, they get the same oysters as many other places in the area. They served a blueberry mignonette with them which, while not to my tastes, wasn't bad. The fries that came with the dishes were different than most but nice- thin and crispy but not overdone. They could have used some salt (and none was made available at the table because of covid) but otherwise tasty. The lobster BLT was honestly quite good, and I attribute it mostly to the incredibly tasty bread it was on (though the back bacon in the sandwich was also cooked in a lovely manner). I'm not a drinker but SO is. He tried one of their specialty cocktails (a $10 Gin Julep) and he said it was not worth it. Presentation was lovely but both the quantity and quality didn't justify the cost. He didn't have any complaints after switching to normal drinks. The table was wobbly- enough to be distracting but not so much that it was an active interference.More

I was just looking for a beer and something quick. We had stopped here for drinks earlier this week so though I’d give it a try. I can see why the reviews are so poor. Servers are friendly but not very attentive given the place...was almost empty early in the evening. The chowder was ok. But the burger was so overdone that one side was burnt. But no one came to see how the meal was and with a flight to catch I ate most of it. It appears place caters to the folks like me who are only in town for a while. I would not come back.More

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...with our experience definitely would recommend. The service was fast!More
