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.

We booked a night out a month ago at the Merchantman because it was on the WinterDine list of places to eat. We specifically chose the Merchantman also because it offered halibut on the menu. It was the only restaurant on the WinterDine that offered...More

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 !

Lovely location in central Charlottetown. Lots of local favorites on the menu including lobster rolls. Good lunch spot, service can be a bit slow so factor that in.

The Merchantman is a welcoming place, and the staff were all very friendly. We went for lunch when our cruise ship docked in Charlottetown. It’s a gentle stroll from the port into the centre of town. The restaurant was quite busy, which explains the somewhat...More

This is is a fine eating establishment with emphasis on fresh fish. It is right down town opposite the Delta Hotel. It attracts local and tourists alike. It is a good eating establishment wit reasonable prices.
