I had the Burger Love burger sans bun and it was great. The nice surprise was the best ever sweet potato fries. We had the burger each and shared a side of fries. Perfect lunch. Service was great.

Fast and casual food. Service was prompt and friendly. Tried the oyster special and got a couple fried and a couple fresh. Really good taste of Charlottetown for a reasonable price.

I had one of the best and most fresh oysters in town. The limited menu can be tough but the food has been wonderful the 3 visits I had.

Eleven of us came in to celebrate my birthday on Friday 30th December. We are visiting friends here on PEI from the UK. We had a great time and the food was excellent. I would thoroughly recommend a meal at The Merchantman !
