I had my first lobster ever in this restaurant when I visited PEI. We had a great time, friendly stuff and delicious food (lobster and cheese cake)! Beautiful view from the patio on the open water of the harbour.

Lobster-On-The-Wharf Restaurant is a place where Lobster is certainly prepared superbly. The location is not romantic or fancy but if you are looking for a great lobster meal......it beats many, many other places...and prices are not out of line for what you get. Service is friendly and fairly fast...can be fairly busy at times.....

My boyfriend and I were new to PEI and really wanted to soak in the real experience. Upon arriving, our server (who I wish I remembered her name, she was the best) let us pick a place we wanted. I picked the outside dock. It was beautiful! With the sound of the gulls, and the ocean breeze in the air.... More

You chose the size of your lobster and it is fresh cooked. They really do taste very fresh. The mayo on the potato salad is a bit too sharp. At a weekend it gets very busy so book a table though service is efficient and fast. In the week it can be very quiet.

My wife and I visited Lobster-On-The-Wharf Restaurant as part of a set meal for the group in mid October whilst on a coach tour of New England and the Canadian Maritimes. We had to pre-order our choices as we were part of a coach party, and had to choose between lobster, steak and chicken. I ordered the steak, but wasn't... More

David, It is great to hear that everyone else at your table enjoyed their meal. We understand your opinion on not having your steak cooked to your specifications while on a coach tour, but that is our standard practice with tour groups and we have agreements with tour companies on how steak will be prepared. We did not forget to... More

We saw the line and got in it as we had heard this was a good place for lobster. It was worth the short wait and we indulged in a tasty lobster meal. The service was great and the view over the harbor added to the overall wonderful ambiance of the place.

Thanks for your positive review of Lobster on the Wharf. We are glad that you enjoyed everything. Fresh seafood, especially lobster, is not on the cheaper end of the dining spectrum.

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!
