Great scallops and lobster. Slightly slow on service but we weren't in a rush. Kids menu available. We booked on a Saturday and could only get a seat outside which was fine.

My boyfriend and I got into PEI a little late but wanted to have a nice dinner. I saw reviews and we were also recommended this place. I am sad to say that this is the worst lobster I ever had as it was over cooked and was like chewing on rubber, but the worst part had to be that... More

Food was fresh and tasty. Atmosphere fun and funky. It's frequented by locals so that is a very good sign. Great French fries as they are made in house. An all round good meal and enjoyable experience.

One of my fond memories of travel in the Maritimes is having deep fried clam strips. On the present trip I tried them at three different places. The ones I had here were by far the best. It is a small restaurant with picnic tables along the sidewalk on two sides - Prince and Water Streets. When we were there... More

Our family sat at one of the picnic tables outside on a beautiful summer night. My wife loved the chowder, while we boys devoured our haddock n chips. Finished it up with a delicious lemon slice. A great night...just be careful coming out of the bathrooms!!

Get reservations to avoid a wait. We got there after the dinner rush and were seated right away at the outside picnic tables. These are communal tables, so be prepared to chat with your neighbors. We sat with a lovely family and enjoyed the experience. The food was fresh from the sea - and good prices. We had fried clams.... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant as a great local treat with fantastic seafood. My wife and I were not disappointed. It is a small busy not much too look at place but the food was delicious. We had the seafood chowder to start which was I think the best I have tasted to date. The lobster was very tasty. My... More

We really enjoyed our meal out here. I had the scallop sandwich and it was delicious. The kids went non-seafood, and it was still very good. Friendly and relaxing atmosphere.

First a disclaimer-neither of us had lobster. And I don't like halibut, husband had halibut fish n chips which he said was good. I'm the seafood chowder person, having eaten a bowl nearly every day starting in Newfoundland on June 25 and continuing to now-July 19. My chowder was average-the taste was fine but potatoes predominated. The chowder I just... More

The place looks cheap and cheerful, and though it is cheerful, it's not cheap. The seafood was no better or worse than other seafood we've had, and the portions were surprisingly small, given the prices. The vegetables were atrocious: a little pile of frozen, then steamed green beans and carrot (yes, singular) that were soggy and tasteless. Yuck. Go once,... More
