We decided to drop by this tourist attraction after reading about the wonderful 'home' cooking on several ads. Our meal was not great. The chowder was tasteless, the vegetables with our main course were over cooked and the lobster itself was over cooked. For the price they are charging this should be a much better experience.

We were disappointed. By the high price tag and the food. Expensive for only a four course lobster supper of less than middling quality (in comparison, we tried another lobster supper that was five course for less $$, and the food was among the best we'd ever had). The soup tasted like something that might be made for large institutions.... More

I was so excited for this meal, I had been waiting since we pulled out of our drive in Ontario. We settled in and what followed was so disappointing. The chowder was ok, the buns were ok, the mussels were ok but many of our shells were empty. The main - the lobster was wayyyy overcooked . My husband ordered... More

Our lobster dinners at St.Ann's was great. The service was friendly and our server seemed genuinely interested in getting to know us - which is a nice touch! The 1 lb. lobster dinner is $34.99 and it comes with salad or seafood chowder, mussels, lobster, veggies, potatoes and dessert. It's a lot of food for one person to eat so... More

The church suppers here date back to the 1950s and there were many locals dining with us. While the lobster was very fresh, the dinner was expensive at $200 for three people.

Enjoyed our Church Lobster Supper, well worth the cost. It wasn't busy the night we were there but reservations are recommended. We chose St. Ann's because it's still at the church and still non-profit. Good value.

We couldn't fault the setup of the place and everything about it - service, food, price, value. It had everything, and they did everything competently. Live music was playing on the Friday night that we were there - a bonus! There might be other imitators out there, some not even in PEI, but this is the real deal which is... More

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
