We didn't make reservations since it was a Sunday. Walked in to see all tables were reserved! One of the waitresses was good enough to check the time of the reservations & gave us a table that wasn't needed for 1 1/2 hours. Husband had Seafood Chowder, which was thick, creamy & delicious & I'm usually not a chowder eater.... More

Our first night in C-town on advice from the hotel staff. Excited to dive into some fresh seafood. We were not disappointed. No seating left inside but we were seated outside on a chilly night. We shared a huge bowl of excellent mussels. Hubby had clam chowder and pan fried halibut with fries. Enjoyed every bite. I had a very... More

The Water Prince Corner Shop has been one of our favourite restaurants for many years, we always stop by when we are "home". This time our dining experience was a big disappointment! I had my regular fried clams which were ok but seemed different! The real disaster was my husband's lobster dinner, after waiting for an hour, the lobster finally... More

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

Chowder was incredible! Muscles were very good and came in a huge portion. Lobster was mouthwatering and crab was heavenly!! Staff was very accommodating!

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
