More than pleasantly surprised by the quality and breadth of variety even in the lunch and bar menu here. My cajun salad was simply amazing, causing my wife to wish she had ordered it. Her panko crusted chicken with brie salad regrettably was not as exciting. I don't think it was badly done just not as remarkable as the other.... More

We make it a point to go to the Pilot House when we're in Charlottetown. We didn't make a reservation this time, but there was a booth in the pub section. I regret that I didn't get the server's name. I think he was the only male server that night. He was amazing. So helpful with our questions on the... More

Dined here on a busy Saturday evening when there was a nearby festival. We were seated at the bar whilst waiting for a table, but didn't have to wait long. Plenty if choice on the menu. We tried the scallops and salmon and weren't disappointed. Good presentation and tasty food, no wonder this place was recommended by our hotel. The... More

Food was great, service was excellent, and the hostess/hosts were very quick to have people seated even on the busy evening I came to dine here! A little bit of tight quarters at times if you are seated around the bar but that just added to the atmosphere for me personally. Would definitely come back, perhaps for the burger next... More

My wife and I walked in to this place for lunch while on our east coast honeymoon. I thought it would be a regular pub but it looks like they are catering to a business crowd. It's a nice set up. I'd consider it a nice compromise date place. The place was packed and the service was a little slow... More

Had a wonderful Cajun spiced seafood salad and when I found a small visitor in my salad greens it was handled very quickly and efficiently and a fresh salad appeared. A good restaurant with a good reputation so I recommend reservations. I plan to go back soon for another Cajun salad.

We met a friend for lunch and it was fantastic. What a great menu. So many awesome choices. My husband had the seafood chowder and lobster BLT. I had the beet salad. Our friend had the chipotle steak salad special. there was not a crumb left on either of our plates. Delicious. Fast service. Great staff.

I have never had mussels this tender and flavorful! I heard the P.E.I. was known for its mussels but this was great. U.s. mussels are typically more tough and steamed in garlic. These had their own natural flavor and were splendid.

While staying at the Sonata Inn in Charlottetown, PEI, we looked for a place for a piece of beef after gorging on seafood for previous days. Just up Grafton Street from numerous B&Bs is the Pilot House. The place was quite busy, but we were seated immediately without a reservation. The tables are nicely spaced to provide some intimacy from... More

My lobster BLT as blah and the accompanying caesar salad was wilted and warm with rancid tasting croutons. However, my husbands fish and chips was good along with a heaping mound of french fries. The cole slaw was OK but very little was served. Service was slow and unfriendly. We wouldn't go back.
