My family came to pei from away this past weekend and they wanted to try good seafood and the first thing that came to mind was merchantman, I have been here a few times before and it's been good... But this time was a different story. We all got drinks which were good, I ordered the steak sandwich and asked for medium rare.. When it got to the table it was well done to the point there was not a hint of pink. After we finished our meals the power went out, all of us at the table had visa so the server advised us she would bring the "old visa machine" over.. Which turned out to be an invoice paper, where everyone put the full Visa card number, expiry date and signature.. After we were waiting 30 mins in a restaurant with one emergency light and no lit up exit signs as the servers continued to let customer in the front door serving beer.. This will be the last time I ever go there to eat or recommend this place to anyone.

Great welcome and good food. Short walk from the main centre and worth a visit. Good selection of local beer and choice of bar, tables or sitting outside, if it is not raining

This restaurant is conveniently located across from the Delta Hotel on Queen Street. They serve a wide variety of fresh Island oysters, and their Oysters Rockefeller is about the best I've ever enjoyed. We went in for a light snack and thought we'd try the Smoked Salmon appetizer. It was perfect for a full meal and had enough smoked salmon that 2 people could have shared, along with excellent goat cheese with figs and house-made bread.

The other dish we love here is the curry and the butter chicken. Service is prompt, friendly and the atmosphere is friendly and inviting.

We entered the establishment and were immediately guided to a booth. Drinks were ordered and promptly delivered a friendly waiter. This was a seafood night....lobster was served as well as fish, shrimp, mussels. All quite excellent. No dessert. No room for it! Overall a fine meal and a good experience for those who want a break from cruise ship food or for those that want to let loose a bit and enjoy a higher end local meal. They have a cozy bar too, so if you feel like oysters and cocktails at the bar - a great spot for it. You will enjoy world cup soccer there too...and a world cup feast!
