Our Story

Music’s Amazing. Customers Craving. Locals Raving.

In 1999 locals, Kevin and Kathy Murphy purchased the Fishbones building and have been operating this unique restaurant ever since. In 2000 Chris Buddan a young enthusiastic 16 year old approached Kevin to help support his idea of developing an entertainment platform for young local musicians. The City Stages Program was created on Victoria Row and to this day continues to grow.

Vic Row has become the  music destination in Charlottetown showcasing  talented local musicians. Fishbones have been supporting local fishermen, farmers, and local musician for the past 15 years. Drop in to see what you’ve been missing.
