They did a great job of showing and and explaining the types and sizes of lobsters and regulations in place to keep the lobster population viable. The owner sat down with us at lunch and answered all our questions.

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.

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!
