The owner 'the Queen of Fries' was so friendly and open, making her fries with love as she said. They were really really good. There is even a lobster poutine on the menu that sounds amazing.

The other reviews had it right. Great fries with very good lobster rolls right on the dock in Charlottetown. Friendly crew running things and a nice setting for lunch on a nice day.

Excellent food. Had fish and chips. Thick haddock loin. Friendly service. Lovely owner. Completely safe - owner has celiac family members. So yummy. Wish I had room to try the Apple fries with caramel.
