We ate here out of necessity as the other two Fish and Chip restaurants we wanted weren't able to seat us in time for our kids dinner. Captain Scott's was exactly what we needed that night, just a casual fish and chip dinner, but nothing out of the ordinary. I could get the same fish and chips back home if... More

Their fish and chips are the best I've ever had!! We come here every time we visit the island and get the same great food and great service. You will not be disappointed with their generous portion sizes. The food is very greasy and definitely isn't healthy at all but that's what vacation is for haha.

Our second visit to this fast food establishment. Sure to be a repeat the next time we're in PEI. I had scallops, they were excellent. Lightly breaded and great size and quantity.. good fries. Must be hand made. Benches could be more comfy! Great friendly service though and fish products are good.

My wife and 3 visiting teenagers toured Cavendish Boardwalk and stopped in for lunch. Prices were ok for combos but after that it got expensive for items. Food was average deep fried fish and chips, burgers etc with a touch of extra grease. Overall a decent meal, good service but 88$ for 5 regular meals seemed pricey too me!

Ordered the fish and chips, scallops, and lobster roll. Food was good, great value for the money, but a little greasy.

We ate here the weekend of Cavendish Beach Music Festival and it was delicious. The restaurant was busy but we did not wait for our food long. (I think I was there before but can't quite remember) anyhow the food was so good!! Seafood was delicious & the home cut fries so yummy!!! Would definitely eat there next visit!

This is my third time to Captain Scott's Fish & Chips and I still love coming here. I always get their fried clams and often their fish & chips but this trip I went twice and both times had their fried clams and chips. Wonderful, wonderful! Such generous portions and friendly staff. You can have tartar sauce, lemon, malt vinegar... More

Went in here looking for a nice restaurant to have supper. The service was awful with very small portions for the expensive price. I asked for a refund so I could spend the little money I had on a more hearty meal. The manager was very rude and said "when she opens her own restaurant she can charge what she... More
