This location is perfect for tourists arriving on cruise ships. I believe customers both visitors and locals are being taken advantage of due to high pricing for their principle product which is lobster.

Super casual spot, almost like a diner with memorabilia on the walls and a giant lobster tank up front! We had a delicious meal of chowder, mussels and a whole lobster. The mussels were seriously the best we had on our whole Maritime trip, and when I asked out server how they prepared them, she said "salt." We had a... More

Our driver/guide for a private tour of PEI recommned this place the "best restaurant in town". We enjoyed a late lunch sampling much of the local seafood - • Steamed Island Blue Mussels • 1/2 doz. Malpeque Oysters served chilled in the half-shell - these were the best Oysters we have tasted, far superior to those our local restaurants get... More

We had lunch at the Water Street and it is one of those places that so many cities have that is a must stop. Very casual, half seafood market, half restaurant but really good quality seafood. Simple items that are prepared well for a pretty fair price.

Very quaint and rustic. Extremely friendly staff with a great atmosphere. Food was excellent. Recommend the seafood sampler for a taste of all seafood but bring an appetite.

After a hot walk, we couldn't leave our dogs in the car. We were hungry and the owners let our dogs sit beside the picnic table with us outside. I had the lobster with mussels, and hubby had scallops. Delicious meal and very friendly accommodating staff.

best mussels on the island. always packed with tourists and cruise passengers, we locals are willing to stand in line for the fresh, fresh, fresh seafood, lobsters, scallops and chowder and best biscuits on earth! Make a reservation, if you can. Otherwise, bring a book and enjoy the harbor neighborhood.

We had dinner here our first night in town and it was perfect. It was chilly outside, but there was no wait for an outdoor table. There aren't any heaters, but the offer little fleece blankets for customers, such a great touch! We grabbed a spot at a picnic table and ordered lobster, crab, mussels, and shrimp. Each course was... More

One of the famous restaurants on PEI that every tourists should stop by. It's very busy in high season and unfortunately it' closed in low season. Lobster roll and lobster in shell I think are the best choices here. I like the interior where the walls are covered with the picture of famous customers and also with car plates from... More
