Off Broadway Restaurant
125 Sydney Street
After a few hours of exploring Old Charlottetown on foot, the sun was starting to fall out of the sky and we happened to find ourselves at Off Broadway Restaurant (which matched one of the places I had scribbled down from my quick search earlier that morning). With no reservations, we were still able to get a table in the back of the restaurant. Exposed brick and dark woods made for a romantic space.
The featured Table d’Hote, and accompanying wine flight ($18) seemed interesting, but I still had oysters on my mind from earlier that day, and a desire to try the local scallops. My wife on the other hand, just couldn’t pass up anything with lobster.

Traveling without an itinerary is my favorite way to travel; however, there occasionally comes a time when you’re stuck trying to find accommodations in the dead of night, or trying to find something to eat with no idea where to go.
The latter was the case on this particular day, as we were exploring the western coast of PEI. As it was off-season for tourists – we were having a hard time finding a restaurant which was still open, when we stumbled upon Carr’s.
Perched next to Stanley Bridge Harbour, the view of the boats and dock are framed beautifully from within the restaurant. The shucking station is the first thing you see when entering the premises – where staff were busy prying open fresh shellfish.
