The food was really tasty, one of the best burgers I tried in PEI. My wife enjoyed her chicken wrap as well. But the place is run down and dark.

Service was very much a mixed bag. They were trying out a new cook and got a half dozen tables come in close to one another. The food took a long time to be prepared but, in fairness, they did tell us about the delay and discounted our bill.

Location is on a University in downtown Charlottetown within walking distance of all the tourist attractions.

We really enjoyed our meal, the wait was too long, but wirth in the end. The sweet tea is absolutely amazing. The menu looks awesome and I'd try it all.

Great use of local foods and brews. We had the duck taco and the fish chowder, blueberry beer and the fresh brews ice tea with fresh blueberries and raspberries. Everything creatively prepared. Top notch wait staff as well.

This was a great find. Nothing fancy, but a nice ambience, very friendly staff, and good food at a reasonable price. Check out their gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches - I went for the pulled pork, and it was fantastic. If you're just looking for a good solid meal - and not caught in looking for something fancy --- you won't go wrong with this place.

We chose this eating place because we had a coupon ($21.66 for 2) giving the second person a free meal . Can’t beat that! The burger was large and tasty. I didn’t like the salty, seemingly- overcooked fries.
The decor was nondescript. The four paper bags of potatoes in the window were tacky. The atmosphere was dark and gloomy. The place looked like it needed a thorough, spring clean-up job.
