We happenend upon this restaurant 3 years ago while visiting pei. My husband has (not - so - patiently) been waiting to return so it was one of the first places we visited this year. He was happy to report that the goddess burger was worth the long wait. I don't remember what I had last time, but had the... More

So I will start with the greeting at the door, friendly and accommodating. I had a little dog in a kennel and asked if it was ok, it was! The menu is just the right size and has lots of different types of dishes to choose from. Our server was very professional and made sure we were well cared for... More

This is a family style restaurant that recently was renovated to update the decor and furnishings but they've maintained a varied menu that would satisfy any diner. Friendly service, good no-nonsense food, big helpings and reasonably priced. This is where the locals in town go for a great meal!

An overdo decor makeover is bright, modern, and clean. Great variety of menu items but prices have increased this spring. I enjoy the fish and chips, and the liver and onions when I go there. Big portions, and home cooked vegetables. Waitresses are efficient but could smile more.

This place is amazing! From the service to the decor to the food!! Been here numerous times and this place has never let me down. Had the Chicken Supreme dish recently and it was the best chicken I have ever had. There is something to be said for this family run consistently awesome business!

Place is cleaned up and modernized but prices have risen at this popular local restaurant. Usually a good noon special. Fast service . Locals seem to love this place but I find it average, especially with all the good restaurants in Charlottetown.
