Suggestions: We would like to have more choices on the menu. We prefer rolls or bread to biscuits.

Service was fine. Food was tasty.

I have been looking for a fried oyster that is similar to oysters I had many years ago. I explained this to my server and she said, "I'm sure our chef can do that". I ordered this for an appetizer and they were so amazing that I ordered more for dinner. The chef is so versatile and creative!! Bravo! The server was polite and attentive and the ambiance was very beautiful. I recommend this for all occasions. Thank you Claddagh for one of the best dining experience that I've had in many years. I will be back!!

Food and service for appetizer and main course very good.

Disappointed as special request for dessert stated on reservation(small cake and a couple of candles ) was not available or ignored.

Substitute of frozen brownie and sparkling candle sent back as unacceptable

We were visiting Charlottetown for our 20th wedding anniversary and decided to try Claddagh as they were listed in the Fall Flavors guide. The Fall Flavors menu was different than it showed on line, so I was a little disheartened, but the recommendations given by our waiter were spectacular! If you go, have the surf & turf; you won't be disappointed.

Service was slow and the pork chop that my husband had for dinner was very fatty. I paid $29 for a 1 pound lobster...very overpriced and then wanted to switch out my potatoes for lobster risotto and had to pay $5 more. I understand the extra cost...sort of, but it is annoying especially considering the price of the lobster. The kale caesar salad was delicious as was the chowder that my husband had. Dessert was also very good. Considering the cost of a dinner for the 2 of us, felt it was overpriced!

Charlottetown's prices are way out of line. 40 dollars for simple lobster, 2.50 an oyster?

We only had a night or two on Prince Edward Island and lucked out with food all around. However, Claddagh House is a definite standout. Everything we had was fabulous. My husband and I decided to share an entree. When it was delivered to the table, we thought it looked a little small (no problem - we could just order something else if we were still hungry). But it was so rich and filling that we were more than satisfied. (Well - we saved a little room for dessert.)

Every summer I come to PEI for a visit. Every time I HAVE to book the Claddagh Oyster House. It truly is the best restaurant I've been to by far. I've been to many but this is the BEST. I ended up eating there both nights because I knew I wouldn't be disappointed and I wasn't. Both servers were exceptional and the food was amazing. Love the atmosphere! Hats off to the best chef ever. I tell everyone about this restaurant when they come to Charlottetown.

We went to the Claddagh house in late August. We were 8 people and were welcomed. Our table was a rectangle/booth and it was great as we could all see each other. It was a bit noisy so we couldn't always hear each other though. The food was delicious. My friends had the oyster sampler and enjoyed it. The scallops were delicious as was the surf and turf. Loved the waterfall in the back of the restaurant. We had a very nice server as well. I would definitely go back.

I can state without hesitation that my meal at Claddagh Oyster House was one of the best I have had in my life ( which is saying a lot since I just turned 84). The service and ambience was also excellent

Business dinner, very good food. Busy spot reservations are a must during peak season. Service was good and friendly.
Oyster sampler was excellent, surf and turf with scallops, pork belly, new potatoes and veg was excellent.

Fantastic Meal. Highly recommended ..... and we are very very fussy "foodies". Bit noisy, so not the most romantic, but we went with another couple and it was so delicious.

For our first night we booked a table at Claddagh Oyster House and were not disappointed. The food is very good as was the service. The oysters were excellent, some of the best we have had. We selected from the seafood part of the menu for the main courses to celebrate our first night on the east coast, and had some excellent scallops, one dish paired with pork belly, the other with shrimp. The sticky date pudding wa an excellent finish to the evening. So good in fact, that we returned two days later for the lobster and more pudding.

When the restaurant is full, it can get rather noisy from the patrons boisterous conversations, however, when it is only moderately busy, the sound levels are fine. Great atmosphere either way.
