We're from New England, so we have been to hundreds of seafood restaurants. We almost passed by "MacKinnon's Lobster on the Wharf," thinking it was a tourist trap. The PEI oysters were wonderful; a nice mix of sweetness and brininess. Service was great, and we...More

A menu with wide variety. Quick service. A bit windy to be eating out on the patio, but great view from the inside tables near the windows.

Even if you are told you don't NEED a reservation, my experience over two nights in August is that it's advisable to call ahead. We waited a long time to be seated and to order, and we almost left. I'm so glad that we stayed....More

We heard about this restaurant as being one of the best seafood restaurants in PEI. The food was alright....we watched a cruise ship leave the harbour during our meal. This is not a "classy" lobster restaurant, we chose to eat inside and it was LOUD...More

This restaurant has good staff. The food is just normal. The views are great . If you get a good table It felt like the best seats are saved for certain guests. My husband said he did not want to go back.

We wanted to try lobster during our trip by the Maritimes, and decided to go here to try it. Unfortunately, we were really disappointed. My friend and I split a few things on the seafood plate. Everything just tasted okay, and the portions were not...More

We visited Lobster on the Wharf this past weekend and sadly will not be back. The serving experience was very very poor.

We are located at 2 Prince St. Wharf in historic Charlottetown, PEI. You cannot get any closer to the water with over half our dining area being over the water at high tide. Lobster On The Wharf specializes in a wide variety of seafood and has great options for the landlovers and kids as well. We have more outdoor seating than anywhere else on PEI. Lobster On The Wharf also does private functions and special occassions. With our adjacent seafood market the fresh seafood might as well be taken straight out of the sea or off the boat!
