Lobster-On-The-Wharf Restaurant

Location and contact

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!

My wife ordered the one pound Lobster and I ordered the Fish and Chips. Both meals were good, maybe a little better than average. Service was slow but the scenery was excellent so we didn't mind waiting. The food is pricey. Ours with one shared...More

Located in the heart of Charlottetown waterfront with lots of indoor and outdoor seating. We had the seafood chowder and lobster bisque with a roll. Both good, but not exceptional, and pricey at $14.95 & $16.95 (read poor value). Our server was prompt, attentive and...More

I don't generally do many negative reviews, but..... We were here for supper tonight, arriving after the heaviest traffic would have left. Had the fish and chips, and Caesar salad. The salad was OK, the chips were so-so, and the fish was a bit soggy,...More

We ate at the Lobster on the Wharf twice during a recent visit. The lobsters were fresh and delicious and my husband had excellent oysters. I particularly enjoyed the mussels prepared in the classic way. The service was good and eating outside was also available...More
