“Popular Spot”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

We had to wait a few minutes for a table as this is a popular spot. The architecture is interesting and you can read about the history of the building on the menu. We both had steak and enjoyed our meals.

“Good Food, Good Service”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Three of us ate lunch there and found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful when we needed explanations of the various beers. They were specializing in various lobster dishes when we went but, since one of us had a shellfish allergy, we checked to be sure there were lots of other choices. She avoided ordering shellfish, naturally, but did mention her allergy to the waitress. The manager came out a few minutes later to tell her that he could not be 100% certain if what she had ordered might be fried in oil that had previously been used to deep fry shrimp. We greatly appreciated their conscientiousness. All three of our meals were tasty and the portions were large.

“Lovely pub fare with nice ambience”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Came in on Victoria Day, a rainy Monday in May 2014. Tables were dirty and three different waitresses asked if we were being taken care of and offered to clean off a table for us. Quite hospitable. We ordered the veggie sandwich (a bean burger with mustard and [curry?], with a great mix of flavors) and the lobster salad (not a lot of lobster, but a good dressing and nice arugula). We also split the beer sampler, which had way more beer than we were expecting. Looked like we got to try every beer they sell. We thought some were better than others, of course, but several paired quite nicely with the food. The blueberry beer was, happily, not too sweet. Portions were enough to fill my wife and I. Smaller than the average American restaurant meal but that's a good thing in my book.

“Good beer paired with amazing fish and chips”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

I tried a few of their brews and the Red and Brown was definitely my favorite. I asked staff what the recommended as their star dish... so I went with the highly recommended Fish and Chips with Sweet Potato fries. Exceptional!

My only beef is that place is packed with dudes, where are the women of Charlottetown!?

“Perfect Pub”
Reviewed 19 May 2014 via mobile

Thoroughly enjoyed my dinner here. The atmosphere is awesome, the staff is so friendly, the waitresses are gorgeous, the food was great, and the beer selection was great especially their home brews. One of the best pubs I've ever been to it has everything... except live music
