We were in the pub upstairs. Service and food were great. Very relaxed Place to have a quiet lunch with friends or in this case a lunch date with my wife. You will enjoy.

It was quite late, and we were afraid we wouldn't get dinner, but this place met and exceeded our expectations. We had a giant pot of fresh mussels, a haddock fillet, which was flaky and yummy, mashed potatoes and steamed seasonal veggies. We scarfed everything down and enjoyed every last morsel.

Hi, My student and I were not too courageous. However, we were brave enough to try the raw oysters on the half shell. Yes, one each !! Next time we will have several.

These guys nail it every time! I had salad and oysters and they were fresh and delicious. The servers are knowledgeable and friendly. The "waterfall sign" inside the elegant dining/bar area makes a chic statement. This family-owned business is one of my downtown favorites. I only wish they had a wider selection of wines.

We went for the oysters and were not disappointed. Sitting at the bar my husband enjoyed a platter of three different types of raw oysters--his choice--and thought all were superb. I loved my Oysters Rockefeller - Delicious! The draft beers were cold and tasty. Our bartender was quite a lovely personality! Great Evening out.

The cancellation I mentioned in my title was not because we choose to cancel or did not want to eat at Claddahgh. We have had several meals there since our move to Charlottetown and thought so highly of the food, atmosphere and service that we decided that it would be the place to celebrate our 39th anniversary. My spouse made... More

Dinner for four, service was lovely. Great food from appies to coffee and dessert. We were treated like special friends the entire evening. You really do not get this whole experience often. Would recommend highly and we will go back on our next trip east.
