Went there for a lobster lunch and it started with a huge bowl of the best mussels I've ever had. The lobster was good too. Went back again for the mussels and a lobster roll. It was good, but not the best in town. My husband had fish and chips twice. Loved it. Highly recommend you try this place. Takes... More

I was CRAVING a lobster roll when I arrived on the island early in July. I researched where I could find one. I found the Prince Corner Shop. Loved the casual atmosphere and was certain I would soon be enjoying the best lobster roll of my life. That's where is stopped. my lobster roll was served on a day old... More

I had fish and chips here and their lobster roll. The service is always great, although it took a long time. Not too sure what the hype is about. Their fish from the chips was good, but I was expecting more of a beer batter for some reason and it was just a dusting it seemed. I don't think I... More

It's a small place but they have the best seafood chowder in the world! They also will ship fresh lobster just about anywhere. The fish burger is amazing as are the fresh hand cut fries. PEI potatoes of course! Worth going for sure!!

We took the time to have lunch here as recommended by a co worker who used to live near. This restaurant was quite busy but we were able to get in. Weather was a little poor so outdoor seating was not available. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals and glad we took the time to visit.

Ate here twice in two days -once for lunch and once for dinner. Loved it - the food is fresh, the waitresses are all friendly and the price was right. Its the type of place where they call Halibut "Hali". Definitely not fancy, but if you like the local flavor of people and food then this is it. Definitely make... More

This small restaurant is very popular. I recommend reservations although we were able to get a table without one. The menu has fish selections as well as sandwiches and what one would consider pub fare. The food was prepared as you ordered it so it was definitely fresh. This means that you might wait a bit longer for your food... More

The four of us heard of this place on "You Gotta Eat Here" and from some relatives who live on PEI. We had delicious chowder, fried clams and seafood plate while sitting at a picnic table outside. The service is very friendly and we overheard our server conversing in fluent French with customers from Quebec (very impressive). Every thing is... More
