Excellent home fries!

The breakfast was average, and the service was good and the prices were very reasonable. Not too fancy, but the food was good. I would reccommend it for breakfast, but maybe skip dinner.

A nice little restaurant. I had the vegetarian wrap with potatoes. The potatoes were a little dry but the wrap was packed with veggies. I would also recommend the fries.

Just a typical local cafe. Not alot of personality in terms of atmosphere, but the food was great and the portions were large. (We only had breakfast here). Prices were reasonable and the staff was very friendly!

My husband and I are here mostly because we were vacationing in the off-season and our usual haunts were closed for the season. What a treat! The service was excellent, and the pizza and garlic fingers we ordered were delicious. We'll definitely be back the next time we're in PEI!

A place where the locals go, which is a great feature. We both had the Fish and Chips which was good but not exceptional. The night we went the Fish and Chips was the special so that was a plus. The wait staff was very attentive and the food came quickly. On our next trip to PEI we would probably... More

Got take-out pizza and garlic fingers. Delicious homemade dough, great toppings. Cooked perfectly. It's one of the few local spots that's open year-round and deserves to be.

This is a great family style restaurant, the locals frequent this eatery. The fish and chips were great. We went there for breakfast and had a great hearty breakfast.

Basic, no-frills seafood, but prepared well. Good price, casual atmosphere. Good for family, friends, couples or dining on your own.

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
