“Service please”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

Our visit to Charlottetown, PEI was enhanced by a visit to the Merchant Man Pub. The food was good, the prices fair. The service was outstanding!! Tesa made our visit more than worthwhile. Talk about great service (and with a smile) with wit and dry humor. Good job Tesa. Keep it up!!

“OK”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

Liked it better under previous owner. Prices have gone up and food is, at best, no better. Still nice pubby atmosphere and addition of outdoor seating a plus. Stick to basic pub fare vs upscale entrees and you'll be happier.

“You can't go wrong with any choice here...”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

All of the items on the menu are delicious and the beer is local and excellent. I had to have the fish and chips on 2 occasions it was so good. Same for the calamari appetizer

They will take reservations and if the weather is good - ask for the back patio. Nice and quiet.

Oh - just remembered - friends of ours said to stay away from the Jambalaya - so maybe there is one thing to avoid on the menu!
