Excellent seafood, this is a local restaurant and don’t just drive by because it looks plain. The service was amazing and the chowder is to die for. This is were the locals go to eat a great meal. True east coast dining.

Ok meal, had lobster roll as well as a burger. Not the best of either on the island but perfectly adequate. Staff were super friendly and helpful . Interesting atmosphere in the sit down area.

What a simple, yet very nice restaurant to start off my PEI visit. Whatever you order, have a Beach Chair Lager with it. (the guy with me had the Salmon Dinner and loved it)
