Lobster is just the beginning

At Lobster on the Wharf @ MacKinnons Wharf, indulging in a feast of fresh PEI lobster always makes for a mouth-watering experience, but when the lobster is savoured while you enjoy the soft breeze off the bay, the sound of gently lapping waves, and a spectacular view of the Charlottetown harbour? Well, that’s unforgettable.

Casual dining and authentic PEI seafood await you in the heart of Charlottetown, right here on the wharf.


Since 1981

Proudly serving up fresh seafood for over 30 years

On top of your classic lobster dinner with all the fixings, our menu consists of a number of dishes made with local ingredients, from juicy AAA striploins to Belle River crab cakes. When it all looks too good to choose, you can build your own seafood dinner of shrimp, oysters, mussels, clams, fish cakes, scallops, and lobster! But what’s the lemon squeeze on top of this already perfect seafood feast? It’s the restaurant’s famous deck that extends out over the water, taking “dinner with a view” to whole other level.
