Great poutine & ice cream

This review is only for their poutine and ice cream since we didn't order their other food. This is our first time having poutine as well; hence, I won't comment on how authentic it is and in comparison to others. We thought the gravy was really tasty. It wasn't overly salty that over powering... read more

Great little spot to stop in and get some good seafood. We ordered clams and fish and chips both were great. :)

This is a seasonal restaurant. Since it is located in a fishing area you would expect good food; however, I found the fish heavily battered with a thin piece of fish and not overly fresh, no extras came with the meal which was a bit over priced for this meal.

I love the french fries here! Hot, fresh and delicious! Be forewarned, this place is ALWAYS busy, but it is worth the wait. Don't miss out on this PEI treat!!

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!
