The lobster was very good for a high-traffic restaurant, but the pricing was a bit of a mystery.
Lobster is supposedly sold at "market price", so a 1 lb lobster dinner was $29.95, but a 2 lb dinner is $49.95. Does that mean that lobster is selling for $20/lb? According to the local fishermen, they're getting less than $5/lb for that sized lobster. Our server was exceptionally nice and really made the visit memorable.
This place is very busy at mealtimes, so reservations are probably a good idea at those times.

Hands down the best restaurant in PEI. We had the lobster special which includes a generous serving of tasty mussels. The restaurant has a diner feel to it and the staff is very friendly.

This is a very small seafood restaurant (12 tables or so) on the corner of Prince & Water Streets and is a local spot that does little advertising. Call for dinner reservations or you will not get a table. We both had 1.5 lb. whole lobsters that each came with a dozen or more plump wonderful mussels as an appetizer. There is only one way to describe the dinner and service...outstanding! Yes we are going back again today. The price is moderate and the value is excellent.

We were looking for a great traditional PEI lunch and found it here. The lobster roll ( get it toasted ) the chowder and fish and chips were my best ever.Make sure to have a Beach Chair Ale while there. The food overall is the best I have had in my trip across Canada and would be great for lunch or dinner. It is very popular so either reserve or get there early.

The service I can't find words to describe adequately. They have an relaxed, involved and friendly attitude and no request is too much trouble. We also got some of the best advice on touring the island and they even provided maps.

To top everything they sell fresh seafood if you are able to cook your own. We bought some mussels, cooked them with Chorizo, mini PEI potatoes and white wine.
