“Good food for the most part.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

Good food and nice decor. Shrimp appetizer was very good but fish tacos lacked flavour. Chicken wings were good. Staff is great with great service. Cautiously recommended.

“Service please”
5 of 5 bubbles 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”
3 of 5 bubbles 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.
