In an area that caters to a lot of tourists where restaurants that aren't open all the time can change staff from year to year, thus some years they are good ,sometimes not so much, Bye The Bay is open year round and tends to be more consistent . The food is delicious from their home made rolls,seafood,wraps,soups,sandwiches etc. While... More

We headed out our Charlottetown as nothing seemed to be open for breakfast early Sunday morning and ended up in Rustico. Food was good, service was good price was fair. It is more a place for locals but it fit the bill.

Stopped here and had the fish and chips. Absolutely the best I've ever had. The service was friendly and efficient and the atmosphere was comfortably casual.

Stopped in this quaint town on PEI when looking for a meal. We were just out of season and the majority of restaurants were closed. Luckily, By the Bay was open as we were hungry. The place was packed and we were able to grab a table as its occupants left. The service was slow. The fish and chips were... More

We came in, according to the locals well before tourist season. By the Bay was a recommendation by locals since it was supposed to be the best that was opened. We had the fish and chips, and the lobster burger. The fish and chips was nice, a nice big serving. The lobster sandwich was amazing. Definitely try it out.

Went there once. Never went back. If you're not a local, they'll mostly ignore you. Robin's Donuts next door has much better food and service.

You know, we often just want a basic good meal/good price, and BtB does that. Parking is tight out front, but lots behind.

We had a great meal. My husband had Hake fish and chips and says it was really good. I had an 8oz strip loin steak cooked to the way I like. I was not impressed with the mashed potatoes and would choose something else next time. The prices are really good.
