“Salad was good - best part was blueberry dressing”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

The service left a lot to be desired - although I entered before 3 other tables they were served first. I had a salad with cold chicken breast - not sure what took so long.
They did have GF clearly identified on the menu.
Some interesting choices on the menu. I thought I would try it as it seemed busy - I wouldn't return - too many other good choices in Charlottetown - my advice - try somewhere else.

“Gonr Down Hill”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

We are locals and have eaten there for years, we tolerated the poor chairs and decor because the food was very well presented and delicious. We were south for the winter and last night we noticed a big change, the presentattion was just ok, the food was not as good and seemed very precooked and basic, nothing like before, the mashed potatoes were plain and bland. This restaurant is no longer on our go to list, very dissapointed.

“Not Terrible... But Close.”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

Our service was excellent, but the restaurant itself needs a good cleaning. The tables, chairs and floor all felt and looked filthy.
The salad I ordered had hair in it and the 'grilled' chicken was microwaved frozen chicken with the fake 'grill' lines in it. The kids ordered burgers, which were ok but greasy. For a side salad, two burgers and fries, a BLT and fries and no drinks, the meal came to $58.
I wouldn't recommend.

“Family Restaurant”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

Great family restaurant, good food, always hot, attentive waitresses and even Johnny!
Fish fry, bacon wrapped meat loaf, fish & chips, lemon fish, scallops, turkey dinner all day Sunday, liver & onions, turkey pot pie (different but good, hot!), club sandwich, potato skins, philly wrap, and coconut cream pie cups to die for! All good any time.
They are also known for their international food.
Place needs some updating but always busy, good food, good service and not a long wait.

“Great Food”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

Very reasonably priced, great food. They use local produce and meats. They are willing to cook to your specification. Nice atmosphere. Great for family or social get togethers. Highly recommend it!
