...Lobster-on-the-Wharf deserves your consideration. Time was short as we had tickets to "Anne and Gilbert." The hostess assured us the time restraint would not be a problem. The full belly fried clams were as good as any I can remember. The view was delightful for...More

Great fresh seafood! The staff was very friendly. The restaurant, while busy, had reasonably fast service and was clean. Built on a wharf, there is a wonderful view, as well as outside eating right on the wharf, in good weather. Choose from a large menu...More

Our first whole lobster and it was wonderful. Lots of work getting it out but worth it. Our waiter was great. Would go there again if I get back to Charlottetown.

Dinner on the extended deck with a gorgeous view and sunset! The house white wine was lovely and not expensive. The steamer clams were outstanding -- no sand at all and very plump. The fish and chips was HUGE and crispy and just what it...More

We had supper here and chose the seafood platter where you can choose from a list (minimum 3 items). We had grilled lobster tail, steamed clams and scallops wrapped in bacon (they were by far the best). Nice house Sauvignon. Amazing cheesecake. Absolutely delightful waitress...More

We were lucky to get a table outside on a perfect weather day. Our server was polite and friendly. There were 4 of us in our party. We split a Lobster Poutine which was much bigger than we had anticipated for an appetizer. Our meals...More

Our opening day for 2017 will be May 1, so unfortunately no. Hopefully you will be back in Charlottetown during our open season, which goes until the end of October. We do take reservations during that timeframe... More

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!
