We only ate at this place because we were staying at the North Winds, and this is right on the grounds of the Hotel. The location was convenient for us after we returned from a trip to Charlottetown. The food was OK, but the prices were reasonable. The service was very fast and good. The waitresses were all super-friendly, and... More

Here's the good: In general, the entrées are good. The seafood chowder was nice too, but soup has to be hot, not warm. The water is great because I know it comes from a well. Here's the bad: The staff are heavy-footed on the loose floor. You need your floor tightened-up and the staff need to lighten-up on their foot... More

We had breakfast at this restaurant. There was a strong smell of fried food, the table was dirty and the seating was full of crumbs, we had to clean it before we set. We had no choice but to stay as our hotel did not serve breakfast. We ordered pancakes and french toats. The pancakes did not look like pancakes... More

We always eat at the Lobster Claw at least once while on PEI. It's a good home-cooked food. The turkey dinner was outstanding! Just remember their is gravy on both the turkey and potatoes. The turkey was nice thick pieces and were delicious. It reminded me of Thanksgiving Dinner. Do get in about 40 mins before closing, they had closed... More

If you are from eastern Canada, this place will feel like your Gramma's old kitchen, and so will the food. If you are a tourist from afar, this simple restaurant will serve you dishes typically local. Nothing fancy but a great taste of the Maritimes. Homemade specialties and a few nice surprises on the menu. First time I had a... More

I love this restaurant and eat here everytime I am in PEI. I find the staff super friendly and I love that they serve up homemade meals. I stayed at the hotel next door several times also and always eat here. Having a home cooked meal when you are traveling is a great feeling, I also enjoyed the prices of... More

We were so satisfied with our meal we wanted to eat there on our second night as well but had already made reservations elsewhere! Haddock was cooked to perfection, salmon was exquisite. Great little restaurant, pleasantly surprised!

We eat there every time we are in PEI & have always been happy with the food & friendly service. It certainly isn't a fancy place but well worth visiting. We ate here twice on this trip.
