Fresh seafood!

We didn't arrive in Charlottetown until late in the evening so by the time we arrived at Water Prince, it was a half hour before closing and they weren't offering lobster any longer. We were hungry so we opted to try the chowder and mussels and we were very pleased (a big bowl of mussels, but they... read more

Arrived at the restaurant and was told that we had a 30 min wait. Fortunately we only had a 20 min one. We were seated at outside at 8:15pm. We ordered 3 different entrees Fried Clams, Fish and Chips and the Scallops Dinner. Our waitress started out attentive yet, a tad rude. An HOUR AND TEN minutes later we were... More

I know this place is highly rated, but on this night I didn't see it. The lobster roll was not even closed to the best I had on this trip, the chowder was only okay, and the location is noisy, We sat outdoors due to the nice weather and busy interior, the picnic tables outdoors are too close to the...

We made a reservation and had a great lobster dinner. It is a long wait for your food because they make everything fresh. Just be aware of this and be prepared to wait about 45 minutes for your main course.

Book a reservation, and you won't be disappointed. It's a casual place, with friendly, feisty wait-staff, and the food is fantastic. It's an absolute gem of a place!

This joint was recommended to us by locals. Nice interior, affordable prices, great fresh food. If you going there after 5PM reservation is suggested.

I have read the food there is good but very busy, have to make a reservation. I have chosen takeaway, come back after 20 min. also save money. You can eat nearby in the square. So take away is really a good option. The food is good and worth the money.

We had been trying to book a dinner at Michael Smith's restaurant but were informed it was fully booked for months. However he recommended this place as one of the best eateries in Charlottetown, a fact confirmed by our B&B host. Located on a street corner, this bustling place is where locals go to feed and the quality is outstanding.... More

Got to eat here when in PEI. Little restaurant with great service and the best food we have eaten in the East Coast so far. Just make sure you have reservations - it seems to be fully booked all the time.

This is a small, hole in the wall so to speak but inside was packed with people having lunch or dinner at noon. We had the Lobster Chowder which was excellent, service very good. It is crowded and not too appealing however the food was good and everyone was enjoying their fellow guests.
