We stopped on PBI while on a cruise. We had gone on a tour of an old house and the staff there recommended this restaurant for mussels. Boy was she right. It was a large portion which was prepared in an excellent wine and garlic sauce. I'm still salivating just thinking about it. We also shared the wonderful sweet potato... More

We stopped in here on a rainy night after watching the Stan Rogers tribute show. We had a drink and a snack. The staff were very welcoming and accommodating. We left warmed by the food, drink and welcome.

We landed in the Pilot House last evening on a busy night for the downtown in Charlottetown. We didn't have reservations but after a short wait we had a very nice table for all 7 of us. Got to sample a wide assortment from the menu and by the calculated sharing I knew everyone thought there meal was the best... More

Make a reservation for dinner or you will need to go elsewhere or eat in the pub section. Food was very good. Our choice of wine was not available, but not hard to find a good substitute. My favourite dish was the sticky date pudding.

Since Charlottetown was very busy with so many conferences plus the seafood festival we were able to obtain a table in the bar area. Restaurant was closed for an event. I must have gotten a touch of food poisoning and only wanted to have some toast tonight. You'd think I'd ordered the unthinkable request, from our server. We were four... More

Great food and quick service in the heart of Charlottetown. Set menu we chose was good quality and reasonably priced matched with a good wine.

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
