Located near the visitors centre on the corner of Water St. and Prince St. is the Water-Prince Café. This café is a favorite spot for islanders and visitors alike. Their delectable fare is most-definitely a must for anyone visiting Charlottetown. Warning: it’s impossible to sample all of their specialties so you may have to visit a few times or sit... More

Between all of us we had the oysters, lobster dinner, fish sandwich, chowder, and chicken fingers. Not one complaint. Had already eaten chowder in NS and Cape Breton and this one was the best. Staff is fantastic and great atmosphere.

You may want to make a reservation, because this place is hopping! Quaint inside and out, with great choices for seafood - whether lobster, fish and chips, or chowder. I had the lobster dinner. It was divine. Seafood chowder to start with a tea biscuit, delicious. The lobster was true bliss, with savoury hot butter. Don't pass up on the... More

Do not let the building fool you - this is one great restaurant. Small, a lot of "junk" when you walk in, small tables, but the food is incredible. Great portions, tasty, and the staff are real friendly. Think country or family restaurant. A place to experience and enjoy!

Read all the great reviews and decided to try it. It was worth it. You will need reservations. We had the mussels, seafood chowder, scallops and fish & chips. It was all excellent. The 3 of us did share a piece of their homemade coconut cream pie and that was yummy too!

If you like seafood, this sure is the spot. My boyfriend and I shared the Water Prince platter (mussels, half lobster and deep fried scallops) and the scallop burger. Everything was good. Especially loved the fresh cut fries. Great service too!

My overall impression "The place was packed with people chatting & laughing" The chatting was between tables as well as at the tables as people shared their stories of the day. I had the fried clams and they were just as they should be. Make a reservation & have a great time. When you leave you'll have paid for a... More
