The food wasn't great and overpriced for what we had. The waitress was curt and inattentive. The only highlight was the house Chardonnay. We had expected much but we're disappointed, possibly because it was the end of the season.

We really enjoyed our lunch at Lobster on the Wharf. We were not real hungry so we shared a lobster roll (yum) fries and green and yellow beans. The beer was good and cold too.

You're paying for the view here, but the food was ho hum. Over priced and nothing special. Hamburger plain with processed cheese slice. Linguini was short on sauce. Server was friendly and attentive.

We are sorry that you couldn't understand that you were not offered both the Caesar salad side and potatoes because you had some allergies to the regular sides offered on the menu. We tried to explain it it to you 2-3 different ways, but you...More

Stopped by here hours before our flight back home to Calgary to inquire about sending some lobsters back. Man helping us highly recommend carrying on, checking in as luggage vs. shipping back which costs significantly more. Ordered a dozen 1.5 pound lobsters which were cooked,...More

We are located at 2 Prince St. Wharf in historic Charlottetown, PEI. You cannot get any closer to the water with over half our dining area being over the water at high tide. Lobster On The Wharf specializes in a wide variety of seafood and has great options for the landlovers and kids as well. We have more outdoor seating than anywhere else on PEI. Lobster On The Wharf also does private functions and special occassions. With our adjacent seafood market the fresh seafood might as well be taken straight out of the sea or off the boat!
