We had spent a lovely day at the Beach and ended up at the Boardwalk to get a bite to eat. My family all had burgers and fries and we all agreed that the food was great. If you are looking for a healthy meal, then this isn't the place to go. The portions are huge and served hot! The... More

I've eaten here many times, and every time has been a pleasant experience -- except this most recent time when I ordered the 1/4 chicken. Trust me, if you like baked or fried chicken, do NOT order this entrée. It's nearly $10, and for that price you'd expect something good, but it's so dry it'll honestly make you choke. The... More

There seems to be some confusion regarding this restaurant, so I'll make it clear my review is based of our visit to the Cavendish Boardwalk location: Oder at the counter, two lobster rolls/fries and two waters. The portions were large, fries were excellent, lobster roll respectable, although no chunks...but no celery either as you can specify your own desire. Overall,... More

Nothing special here. The fish was soggy and chowder had the consistency of being made with cornstarch. I wouldn't go back, but if you're desperate for seafood, it won't kill you.

I can comment on the fried fat bellied clams, fried breaded shrimp and French fries in this review. All were cooked in a high quality oil, and as a result, all were very tasty. The shrimp, in particular, had a light crust that was delightful to bite into. The fries are among the best around, if you like deep golden... More

We had the Clams and Fries, it was very very good...Fresh Whole Clams with a Crispy Batter. The fries were homemade. Price was fair and got a good size helping. Had only one size , like a large size, which was fine as the Clams were sooooo good. Convenient as it is right on Cavendish Boardwalk..... Cant wait to go... More

Great seafood here. We had whole clams and fish n chips. Both were great. Service was great and the staff were friendly. Prices were on par with most fish n chip places.

Fish and Chips were delicious and you got lots for your money - more than you could eat. Price and amount were exceptional. Staff was so accommodating too. Loved it here as well and came back a few times while I was visiting in PEI.

In spite of their own hype, their fish and chips product is less than professional , though there are many, many joints worse than this one.

I eat here often over the summer since they have the best fried fish AND the best homecut french fries on PEI! The scallops and clam strips are also excellent (try them all on a seafood platter). You don't go here for the atmosphere since the decor is a bit lacking, but the food is worth it. Although they are... More
