Beautiful restaurant, great staff, and amazing food. I had the cajun seafood salad. So delicious. Upscal and pricier entree menu, along with a pub menu to appeal to everyone. Our food was slow, but well worth the wait. Love it here!

No question, the greasiest fish and chips I ever had. I used four napkins to take the grease off a somewhat smelly haddock but to no avail. On the end I had to remove the batter all together in order to have a bite. The server watched the process and never said a thing. At the end, after leaving all... More

Love the feel of the place. Great staff. The cajun seafood salad was not was I was expecting for the price. Not enough seafood for the $19 price tag. I'll give it another try on my next trip though.

Excellent food and great service - what else can one say. The food was son good that we did not go searching elsewhere. Might have made it three out of three but we were invited out elsewhere for the other evening, Good wide range on the menu to suite all palettes. I'm told it's frequented by locals which is always...

Arrived into Charlottetown in darkness after a long drive. The Pilot house was recommended by the desk manager at the Harbour House, a short walk down Grafton Street Service was attentive and friendly. Wine by the glass selection was very good. Shared the fish tacos and the lobster BLT, both were excellent and the side Caesar salad was outstanding.

Tourist season is pretty much over, so I walked in for lunch with no reservation. Based on other reviews I ordered the warm seafood salad, and it did not disappoint. Service was friendly and the experience overall very nice.

The building itself is a glorious old hardware store. The owner is the friendliest man in town and works his own business. The staff are helpful and smiling and then there is the food. What to say. OK here goes. I have never had a bad anything in this restaurant. It's where I take any and all visitors and go... More
