It is the best place for your lobster supper experience. The service is fast, efficient, and friendly. The food (mussels, chowder, lobster) is excellent and super fresh.Even when the dinner room is full it is still quiet enough to allow for a conversation.

I don't have much to add to the other reviewers -- just make sure you GET THERE! Who knew a church supper would grow to this amazing outing. Is it tired and past its prime? Hell no. It is what it says it is -- a church supper. A fantastic lobster dinner in a church basement.

You can't visit PEI without doing at least one of the famous lobster suppers. We chose St. Ann's, the oldest one, which is celebrating its 50th year. When we arrived, we explained that one of our party has allergies to gluten and dairy, and they were more than happy to accommodate (and knowledgeable, too). We loved the clam chowder (salad... More

Overall the food was fantastic and very plentiful! The chowder was delicious very creamy and thick and the mussels were very tasty too. The lobster was fresh and oh so tasty as was the chicken that my brother had and the steak my sister tried. The rhubarb crumble that is in house made was some of the best I ever... More

A short drive from Cavendish St. Ann's operates in a large church basement. Its history says that it was the first church group starting in 1964 to put on lobster suppers to raise money. The atmosphere is very basic and we thought it was now old and tired. There was a going-through- the-motions feeling about the whole operation maybe because... More

St. Ann's was featured in a travel show in Japan just before we came over so we knew we could expect something good... well, mostly good anyway. Being in a church kind of guarantees interesting but slightly uncomfortable chairs and tables and that's what we got. The idea here is quite simple: to cook up a lot of lobster and... More

So you're eating in a church basement. Our waitress was very sweet but very very slow. The hostess eventually figured out that the rolls waiting on a nearby service station were for us. Our lobster was tasty. The mussels were gritty. The lemon meringue pie was a treat!

I went to St. Ann's with great expectations. They had a 1 and 1/2 pound lobster special. My wife and I ordered the special which sounded pretty good. Each of us was served a 1 pound lobster and one-half of a second lobster, cut in half. The lobster was clearly reheated a second time, with the meat being very tough... More

St Ann's came highly recommended by the owner of the B&B we stayed at, as well as in other restaurant reviews. It was disappointing!!!!!!! The mussels and lobster were not fresh, We had the special 1 1/2 pound of lobster dinner. The mussels were at least a few days old!!! The lobster came in 2 pieces (i.e., 1 whole lobster... More
