Description: The Factory Cookhouse & Dancehall on Hunter's Corner (affectionately dubbed The Factory) is Prince Edward Island's only dedicated Country escape! Following in the footsteps of our flagship restaurant, Hunter’s Ale House, we offer a combination of Hunter’s classics and Factory southern BBQ smokehouse favourites! Quesadillas & nachos, smokehouse chicken, poutine, steaks, seafood, & more – our menu boasts something for everyone. After dinner, the dance floor heats up with a mix of country and classic rock with local, regional and national acts cycling through so it’s always fresh and exciting. The party keeps going into the late-night with local DJ’s playing a unique balance of the music you want to hear. At The Factory, we stand on three pillars - Food, Friends & Fun!

Brought my family here and ordered four different meals. All four were unbelievably good. Huge portions with quality ingredients. It is only one year old thus a possible reason for their no.61 ranking.

I recently visited the Factory Cookhouse for the first time. I had been wanting to see what it was like as it is a relatively new restaurant to the Charlottetown area and I must say that it exceeded my expectations. At first glance it doesn't look like anything special, just your typical western themed restaurant that has country music playing in the background(same basic layout from when it was Pizza Joe's). Our server was extremely friendly and prompt, despite being the only one working at the time.

What makes this a worthwhile restaurant to visit though is their food. I had a pulled pork sandwich and a side of chili, both were very excellent with just the right amount of spice for the chili(although I probably wouldn't order these two items together as the chili also has quite a bit of pulled pork in it). Also, if you like big portions you won't be disappointed. I could barely get through half of the meal. This shouldn't be surprising considering the owners are the same as Hunter's next door(who pride themselves on large portions). The prices were very reasonable(about $12/person) and you certainly get your money's worth.

Bottom line, this is a nice little restaurant that serves better food than you'd expect. It was a much better experience than I've had going to a place like Montana's and I would certainly return. It won't blow you away or anything, but the service, food, and prices make the Factory Cookhouse a really good value and worth considering.

On the island for a quick weekend visit with family and a chef from another restaurant recommended to my grown children we try this new establishment. I new it as "The Rendezvous" many years and several iterations ago. The Rendezvous was never this good. I went with the full rack of ribs with sweet potato fries and Jim Bean apples. The ribs were awesome. My wife had the Chicken Quesadilla and like me, cleaned her plate. The three others in our party also liked their meals.
And having the Barking Squirrel Lager to wash it all down certainly helped.
