Delicious!!

Fantastic restaurant. It's a tad small and you will likely have to wait but it's worth the wait! The food is wonderful and the servers are charming. Very reasonably priced too. We sat outside on the picnic tables and it was great!

So, good to ask about portions. Ordered a one pound lobster, not knowing that it came with one pound of mussels as an appetizer, potato salad and cole slaw! LOTS of food- too much, really to enjoy any one thing. I'd suggest the offer the lobster alone and a portion of mussels to share otherwise you need to be wheeled... More

After reading some great reviews and noticing the lines of waiting customers on several occasions, I figured we had to try this place. We managed to hit a quiet afternoon for lunch and avoided the lines. Overall, the food is okay, but nothing special. The clam chowder ($8 for a small cup) was lukewarm and rather listless as the clams... More

Hands down the best for fish and chips around. Choice of haddock or halibut. Rarely see anyone use halibut for fish and chips, it's a treat. Haddock is just as good. Excellent chips as well. Can't go wrong here.

My partner and I went for dinner during our last night on the Island. We made a reservation that day, as we knew that we had to have one to get in (when we arrived they were fully booked until close). My partner had the seafood chowder, and he loved it! I had the fish and chips and they were... More

I find it to be overpriced and always overly busy. The food is okay. But it's way too expensive for what one gets. I'd suggest you go buy a cooked lobster , some potatoe salad a bottle of wine and eat at hotel or cottage. Then take a stroll around town and spend the $$ you have saved on a... More

Worst restaurant I have ever been to. Lobster roll was atrocious. Nothing but a stale, hard bun filled with wilted brown lettuce and mayo. Lobster meat was sparse. The lobster that was in the bun was thin, stringy, dehydrated bits of fishy-tasting meat. Price for this roll was outrageous. Fried clams were even worse. They were very oily and full... More

I heard they had the best chowder, so I went. I was really disappointed. I also had raw oysters that were good

On the recommendation of our BNB hosts we took a quick drive to WPCS. Bill has been waiting to try some good seafood after a week of disappointing fare in NB. Parking areas are restricted so park when you can. Walked in and were told that we needed reservations every night BUT if we were okay eating outside there was... More
