When you drive around Prince Edward Island, you will probably notice that just about every restaurant seems to offer a Lobster Dinner and even many of the churches too! You can’t go wrong with a Lobster Dinner from the Water Prince Corner Shop and Lobster Pound; delicious food and great atmosphere. It is a small place with only a few... More

We came here based on a recommendation while we were in Charlottetown. Their chowder is full of chunky seafood and potatoes and their mussels and lobster were thoroughly juicy and yummy. However if you want to go there you'd better be quick because they're closing down at the end of October and won't be reopening till May. What a shame!

The first night that we stopped in here, while we were on holidays, we were told that we couldn't come in, without a reservation! Even though it wasn't busy. We tried it a few days later. Had their chowder. It was good. Service was not. Our server was not friendly. Seemed like she just didn't want to be there. Wasn't... More

This is one of the best known spots in town. We ate outside and loved watching people encounter lobster for the first time. We split some seafood chowder--it was incredible! The dinner was fabulous! Great classic maritime meal.

My wife and I had mussels & lobster, 5 years ago at the Water Prince and thought it was the best we had ever had. Tonight we went again. The place was packed. The service was quick & friendly. The mussels & lobster were superb. You are also sitting close to other tables and we met a wonderful couple from... More

Fortunately, they were able to seat us (we didn't have reservations) and we were delighted! Their salmon was delicious (and not over-cooked), the steamed mussels were abundant, tender and wonderful, and the clam chowder was the best we've had! The service was excellent (attentive and friendly), and the prices were reasonable. Wish we'd found it sooner!

This place was recommended to us when we visited Canada + PEI in September 2015. You need to book ahead though as the place sells out very quickly! The food is amazing and the hosts were very friendly :)

We thoroughly enjoyed the fish and chips and mussels and lobster. The unique decor and friendly, efficient waitress added to the experience. A fine casual dining experience.

We went to Water Prince for a classic PEI Lobster Dinner and were not disappointed. The lobster was perfectly cook and the sides of potato salad and dinner roll were near perfect. We liked the Lobster so much that we ordered 6 to be packed up to be taken the plane with us the next day. The pick up the... More

Don't be put off by the unassuming appearance of this little restaurant. You are going to have to make reservations, but your meal will be well worth it!! We went for the lobster dinner with mussels & sides. The mussels were great, the lobster yummy. Price was very reasonable. We were in Nova Scotia for two weeks & this was... More
