This is not a fancy place. It is the kind of place you can sit around with a plastic bib around your neck and no one notices. The tables are stuck wherever they can fit including around a brick chimney and what looked like a service counter outside the kitchen. We both chose the 1.5lb lobster dinner. The price was... More

We went there with great hopes as we had heard so much about the food here. First the scallop burger was awesome. The location good & the atmosphere has possibilities. However, the service was patchy - depending on who served you. One was down right surly. The Lobster roll was a disappointment - more bread than Lobster & quite bland.... More

Got to PEI late afternoon, looking for a local place. By recommendation, found this awesome corner restaurant. No reservations, got lucky and sat at the kitchen bar. Mussels were good (reason for our trip to PEI) but I've had better. The lobster, their specialty, looked great and no one we saw from our birdseye view looked disappointed. Chowder had more... More

On a recommendation from our host, she made us a reservation for dinner. On arrival it was out the door and a small queue. The restaurant was quirky and without the recommendation we would have missed it. Car licence plates on the walls from all over the world and a corner shop look almost hid a restaurant with top class... More

Best Seafood chowder I've ever tasted. Was highly recommended by the guy driving the 2 horses and large carriage who was a paramedic at night and gave tours during the day. Was on a New England/Canada cruise on the "Veendam" on Wed., August 27, 2014. Only disappointment was they run out of "steamers" right before I got to order them.... More

What enchanted me about this place was its unique roadtrip-small-town geniune spirit. The place was filled with licence plates from all over the world and cute posters with humorous tourist info about PEI. We had oysters / delicious(!) and the fisherman's platter/ the callops were the best! Overall well priced

Excellent food, great service, but small setting requires a reservation. The staff will try to work you in if you do not have a reservation.

Recommended by locals, the lobster, the chowder and even the fries were all good and the exterior of the place does not define what to expect inside. It's a combination market and restaurant, with simple and modest seating. Nothing sophisticated here, and eating is a messy experience. My complaint would be with the number of flies and wasps that constantly... More

I love seafood and so I was pointed in the direction of this gem. Very tasty food and reasonable prices to boot. I'd definitely recommend the scallop burger. I enjoyed it so much I went back again the next day. Please make sure you book in advance as I saw many people being turned away.

I really like seafood and I LOVE this restaurant! I had the seafood chowder and the platter with lobster/mussels/scallops. Absolutely fantastic. This restaurant was recommended to us by a local in town when we were debating going to one of the restaurants on the main strip or Victoria Row. Literally on the corner of Water and Prince streets. Friendly and... More
