Great shared meal of the spinach dip and the fish tacos...Also tried the raspberry lemonade, it was very refreshing on a warm summer day.

Food was delicious, especially their nachos. Service was a little lacking, they couldn't get our order right and messed up our appetizer and main order. Would try it again as the food was simply awesome

Went in for a quick bite since they had Steamers - more rare on the island than one would think. My companion and I both ordered Steamers, but were told that there was only 1 order left. This was around 12:30pm on Thursday. Huh? Ok,...More

I found the grilled haddock with choice of side dish (I chose broccoli) was perfect for lunchtime. Siiting on the patio across from the Delta hotel was an ideal spot.

We spent half an hour trying to find a parking space on a very busy day in Charlottetown. The effort was worth the time because the restaurant is warm and welcoming, the food is first rate and the service is attentive.

Heads up, when requesting a reservation with a group of 10 and over you need managers approval. They will say sorry the manager will call you tomorrow morning. But they will never call back, I called three times to see if there was an update....More

We have eaten here on previous visits and it's been very good. Last night was cool and rainy, so we decided to order seafood chowder to eat at our hotel. For $27 our soup portion was small, the potatoes were uncooked and crunchy, and there...More

Excellent seafood (fish, oysters, mussels), pleasant atmosphere inside, friendly and attentive staff (without hovering). Popular place. Reservations are a must. Definitely worth a return visit..
