    Papa Joe's: Lebanese, Seafood, etc.

    by Canuck5 Updated Sep 13, 2008

    I ate here in October, 2007. Although their specialty seems to be Lebanese cuisine, most of the menu is not. There's a variety of fare for everyone's tastes.
    Except for a room set off for groups or parties, the remaining tables are set in an open area (ie. no booths).
    I'm not sure if it was just the timing I was there, but this restaurant seemed to be popular with the seniors crowd.

    Favorite Dish: I had the specialty for the night I was there, which was not on the menu, but probably should be.
    It was a pesto-crusted halibut, served on a plate of penne noodles in an Alfredo-like sauce. It was fantastic, and I asked my server and the owner's wife (?) to tell the chef so.

    The Pilot House: Seafood

    by Canuck5 Written Nov 24, 2007

    This was yet another great place recommended to eat, especially for seafood, but didn't get a chance to drop in.

    Their menu is pretty varied, ranging from Blackened Salmon with Lobster Sauce for $18.95, to a Rack of Lamb Florentine, at $29.95. In between these, there's Fettuccini, Thai Peanut Chicken, Pork Ribs, Filet Mignon, and others.

    They also have a pub menu, with lots of choices. Prices range from Vegetarian Pizza for $7.50, to a Lobster BLT for $12.50.

    The Olde Dublin Pub, and Claddagh Oyster House: Irish

    by Canuck5 Written Nov 24, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is where you'll find The Olde Dublin Pub upstairs, and the Claddagh Oyster House downstairs.

    Favorite Dish: Another place that was recommended, but wasn't in town long enough to try either of them out. Will keep in mind for the next trip over.

    Hunter's Ale House: A great place to eat

    by Canuck5 Written Nov 11, 2007

    A nice place to eat is Hunter's, which serves a variety of dishes, including seafood and steak. I chose seafood, and it was delish.

    Favorite Dish: One of the unique offerings here is the 72-ounce steak, called the John Candy, which goes for $60.00. If you can actually finish it, it's free ! Our server told me she was only aware of 3 people who have been able to do so.

    Monsoon tea room: If you like sushi...

    by fairy_dust Written Sep 22, 2006

    Monsoon is a little tea room where you can eat sushi. Many varieties are available for very cheap - regular sushi, california rolls, etc. A small sushi tray has about 10 pieces and most trays are around $5-$8 (depending on how many pieces and the types of sushi). Most (if not all) the food is vegetarian.

  • Cows: PEI Ice Cream

    by cpm440vee Updated Aug 31, 2006

    Try the local PEI ice cream chain called Cows. There are a number of locations in PEI and a few more in other provinces starting to crop up. Everything here is cow-related. The names of their ice cream, the t-shirts all have some reference to cows.

    Favorite Dish: We had the Wowie Cowie ice cream.

  • Subway: Looking for a Lobster Sandwich

    by cpm440vee Written Aug 30, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This may sound ridiculous that I'm recommending a fast food sub restaurant but you should go to Subway and try their lobster sandwich. We got a 6" lobster sub for about $9CDN and it was pretty good. Better than the McLobster at McDonald's. I guess it's more of a novelty but at least you can go home and claim that you had a lobster sandwich.

    The Merchantman Pub: The Merchantman Pub

    by canuckmike Written Jan 16, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Opened in July of 1994 in the historic Carvell building, the Merchantman Pub is a nice place to sit down and have a meal. There are two distinct rooms which is nice to kinda cut down on noise and crowdiness (is that a word?). It has an interesting menu but for me a bit pricy for what you get. They had the largest scallops I have ever seen though. Apparantly in was voted the best fish & chips in Charlottetown. Bottom line is that I enjoyed my meal there but it would be an occasional restaurant for me.

    The New Glasgow Lobster Supper: The Best Seafood Restaurant In The Universe

    by wreckloose Written Dec 20, 2004

    It's a low key looking restaurant from outside, and inside it looks like a mess hall. Don't let that fool you though because the meal is top notch.

    Favorite Dish: The lobster of course... haha

    You buy your lobster in advance (price depends on the poundage of your lobster... wait, is poundage even a word?). Regardless, in addition to your lobster, you get unlimited dinner rolls, salad, clam chowder, beef vegetable barley soup and mussels. Pardon me? UNLIMITED MUSSELS? Don't mind if I do... and by all means, don't hesitate to come here. Your belly will thank you for it later.

    Smitty's: A great place for brunch

    by fairy_dust Updated Apr 11, 2004

    This place is a family restaurant, great for breakfast, brunch, or lunch. They have typical breakfast foods, and there are a lot of choices on the menu. They have supper foods too, so you can eat any meal there, but breakfast is very popular there.

    Favorite Dish: I like the breakfast foods there. There are combo meals that include pancakes, sausages/bacon, eggs, omelettes, etc. I like the International breakfast - French toast, Belgian waffle, eggs, and sausage. I also like the strawberry pancakes. Most meals are between $6 and $10 Canadian, excluding beverages.

    Mexico Lindo: Mexican food

    by fairy_dust Updated Feb 19, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant has a Canadian host and Mexican chef. The food is great! It's real Mexican food cooked by a Mexican chef, and it's very spicy! Most of the food ranges in price from $5-$10 Canadian, but the seafood is more expensive ($15-$20)

    The building used to be a private home, so the interior looks a little like a house. The exterior has also been re-painted in bright colours - pink and blue, so you can't miss it!

    You must pay cash - debit and VISA are not accepted. Also, take-out is available.

    Favorite Dish: I love the enchiladas. They're covered in a spicy chocolate sauce called Mole.

    And for dessert, the deep-fried ice cream is yummy! I know you're thinking "Deep-fried ice cream? That's an oxymoron!" but what they do is put crumbs all over an ice cream ball, and when it's completely covered, they deep-fry the covered ice-cream ball. That way, the crumbs prevent the ice cream from melting.

    Lobster suppers

    by fairy_dust Written Feb 13, 2004

    Lobster suppers are a typical PEI thing, since lobster fishing is very common here. There are many places in the province where you can have a lobster supper. Among them are Fisherman's Warf in Rustico (you'd have to drive out there, it's near Cavendish), and Mackinnon's Lobster on the Warf at Peake's Quay in Charlottetown. There are a few smaller places in town too.
