This is the place is know for there lobster dinners, but I go for soft shell clams (aka squirt clams) and the view. Lobster on the Wharf has a great selection of fin and shellfish dishes. Friendly staff, lots of seating both indoors and outdoors over the water.

I had my first lobster ever in this restaurant when I visited PEI. We had a great time, friendly stuff and delicious food (lobster and cheese cake)! Beautiful view from the patio on the open water of the harbour.

Lobster-On-The-Wharf Restaurant is a place where Lobster is certainly prepared superbly. The location is not romantic or fancy but if you are looking for a great lobster meal......it beats many, many other places...and prices are not out of line for what you get. Service is friendly and fairly fast...can be fairly busy at times.....

My boyfriend and I were new to PEI and really wanted to soak in the real experience. Upon arriving, our server (who I wish I remembered her name, she was the best) let us pick a place we wanted. I picked the outside dock. It was beautiful! With the sound of the gulls, and the ocean breeze in the air.... More

You chose the size of your lobster and it is fresh cooked. They really do taste very fresh. The mayo on the potato salad is a bit too sharp. At a weekend it gets very busy so book a table though service is efficient and fast. In the week it can be very quiet.

We are located at 2 Prince St. Wharf in historic Charlottetown, PEI. You cannot get any closer to the water with over half our dining area being over the water at high tide. Lobster On The Wharf specializes in a wide variety of seafood and has great options for the landlovers and kids as well. We have more outdoor seating than anywhere else on PEI. Lobster On The Wharf also does private functions and special occassions. With our adjacent seafood market the fresh seafood might as well be taken straight out of the sea or off the boat!
