We were storm stayed in Charlottetown when friends invited us to join them at the Merchantman for dinner. The location was ideal, right across the street from our hotel. Perfect. While they had a good wine list, they also had a good selection of single malt scotches and it seemed a good night to warm my insides with a glass... More

Stopped in without a reservation and were seated almost immediately. Enjoyed a glass of wine and told the server we were in no rush. She gave us lots of time and space and when we were ready, she took our order. We were on the pub side on purpose. There was a table in the dining area available before we... More

Went there on recommendation of a flight attendant on the way into Charlottetown and was not disappointed. Very high quality food and tasty, but did not break the bank! Good location downtown and close to the water.

The restaurant interior is modern and well designed. We had super customer service which is so important. A couple of us had the fish and chips and found the portion to be on the small side for the price... We left still feeling hungry. Good beer selection though!!!

We went as two couples. It was an evening out with friends. This restaurant has been in place for a long time downtown Charlottetown. A few years back, it was taken over by the "Murphy Group". Many of the people I knew as regulars were not very hopeful about the quality of the place. Murphy group owns a lot of... More
