Great food, there was no shortage of restaurants in Charlottetown to pick from and we weren't disappointed. The outdoor patio was neat, my fiance loved the lobster roll. I got the steak and frites which were also delicious!

The service was OK for take out and the small greek salad was adequate but the lobster roll was a meager portion on a semi fresh roll. The french fries which they tout as hand cut, was all small pieces and not very fresh.

A family lunch with 8 people, and the drink order arrived 24 minutes after ordering. Food was okay, service staff seemed more concerned with their plans for the evening.

We ordered two lobster rolls to go. The service was adequate and the food was fine - nothing special.
