Over the past number of years Peake's Quay with its beautiful views of the Charlottetown Harbour has become a very popular location for large corporate functions. A number of these functions have been National or International conferences with anywhere from 100 to 500 people. Some past functions include:

GoMedia Canada Marketplace 2013 Canada AM live broadcast and breakfast – Wednesday, September 11, 2013

Dear John,

Just wanted to thank you and your outstanding staff at Peake’s Quay Restaurant for helping make the Canada AM live national broadcast with weatherman Jeff Hutcheson and breakfast during the annual GoMedia Canada Marketplace a success.

Tourism is built on fostering relationships and building partnerships, and we could not have asked for better partner in putting this event together in the few short weeks.

The variety and quality of food and presentation at the buffet stations was outstanding, and special thanks for going above and beyond on the table and other décor elements. These added touches enhanced the breakfast and helped drive home Canada’s tourism brand to the domestics and international media.

John, your staff were outgoing, pleasant and very accommodating making our delegates feel welcomed and at home while enjoying and participating in the live broadcast. Wishing you and all the great staff at Peake’s Quay Restaurant continued success. Keep up the good work on showcasing Charlottetown, PEI.

Yours truly,

I would like to thank you and the staff at Peakes Quay for making our event that took place on Monday, September 13th an absolute success!

The food was incredible, the service was excellent and you could not ask for a better location!

The next time we are in PEI for an event, we would definitely consider using Peakes Quay again. I will also recommend your venue to anyone that I hear who may be bringing a group to Charlottetown.

Again, thank you for the memorable event that was truly enjoyed by all!

Sincerely,

2009 CACP Conference ' Community Fun Night

The Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP) held the City of Charlottetown Community Fun Night at the historic Charlottetown Seaport Event Centre where Peake's Quay catered the event. This event took place on August 10, 2009 and over 700 delegates and exhibitors attended. With the dedicated support and assistance of John Likely and his team from Peake's Quay, this event was a huge success. The service of a complete lobster supper was done in a very timely fashion with plenty of food and beverages for all. The added touch of mussels was great and everyone raved about them.

Once again, a big thank you to you and your team for excellent service, great food and a very memorable evening of a night of Island hospitality which was enjoyed by all our delegates.

Regards,

Peter Cuthbert

GOSS GILROY INC.

On behalf of the partners of Goss Gilroy Inc., I would like to send along a heartfelt "thank you" for the marvelous job you and your staff did on Tuesday, June 6th when our firm hosted our 25th anniversary at Peake's Quay.

As you know, I was involved in organizing the details with you and sadly was not personally in attendance. However, I have heard rave reviews about how accommodating you were to the GGI partners and to all who attended. Among the comments that came back were that the setting was lovely; the music was lively and just the right volume; the food was delicious with ample quantities and there were plenty of wait staff serving through the course of the entire evening. This was especially appreciated by those who arrived late and had not eaten an evening meal. Apparently, conference delegates from afar (West Africa) were seen thoroughly enjoying quantities of PEI mussels. All to say'a good time was had by all largely because of the hard work of you, your chef, catering staff and the management of Peake's Quay.

Please pass along our appreciation to all those who had any part to play in the success of our reception. We would highly recommend your location to anyone considering a similar function. Thank you.

Canadian Police Association ( off site )

I am writing this letter in response to the GREAT JOB you and your staff performed at our Lobster supper held on the Government Wharf for the Canadian Police Association.

There are times that organizations such as yours would not look at taking on such a request , But with your determination and thoroughness the Supper came off in flying colors. Although it has been a year since the event we Islanders are still hearing about how good the supper was and how this small province held its own against the larger provincial organizations.

With groups such as yours " The Island way of life will be instilled greater into the hearts of people who are fortunate to come to the Island.

The Delegates who attended our Lobster Fest are still talking about it. We always hold an off-site event but the last one at Peake's Quay was labeled as " THE BEST EVER"

This is due to the ambiance and friendly staff of your establishment. The food was Excellent and the service was Great. I would not hesitate to recommend Peakes Quay to anyone who wishes to have a successful function such as we did.
