This is always our first stop when we arrive in Cavendish. The Fries with the works are super yummy! Prices are really good for the food quality and portions are generous. The fries are really really good. They have seafood, burgers, several flavours of shakes etc.

We stopped here after a day at Shining Waters, looking for a snack to tide us over until a late supper. Everything looked good, but we settled on a large fries to share (family of 4) and two ice creams for our kids. The fries were delicious and there were plenty for each of us. The ice creams were the... More

The cook started yelling and swearing and told us all to leave the restaurant and to never come back. To be treated in such an aggressive manner and... More

My daughter and I keep coming back to Captain Scott's. Although I've had the fish & chips other years I had the fried clams and chips on this trip. The fried clams are such a treat. They are plump and tasty and the servings at Captain Scott's are generous. Great fries too. We'll be back again.

My daughter and I love their fish and chips - we always get the one piece as it is more than enough food, fish is cooked to perfection and the home made fries are just right - price is right and refill on pop.

This restaurant is your typical fast food seafood restaurant. Although it is very overpriced. Food is okay, but nothing to get overly excited about.

My family stopped here. I had poutine and they had fries. The portion sizes were huge. The fries are homemade, crispy, and delicious. The other food we seen people getting also looked good.

Visited here a few days ago and thought it was alright. I wasn't very hungry so I just got a hamburger on its own, my boyfriend got clam strips and fries. It was pretty busy inside, service was fast considering. It was quite a good burger, they give it to you plain and you put your own toppings on. I... More

We make sure to stop in for fish and chips every year we visit PEI. Large portions - great value for your money. The fish (haddock) is always fresh. The fries are hand cut and made from PEI potatoes. Free refills on pop. They serve other seafood and have a kids menu too. The service is quick and always friendly.... More
