We visited Charlottetown for only one night, and parked near the water to go for a walk. Seconds after getting out of our car, the Queen of Fries was waving to us and saying hello. At first I figured it was a good way to attract customers, but after chatting with her for 20 minutes while eating her excellent fries, we realized that she is a totally sincere and loving person who loves people, whether they're customers or not.

We only had a small order of fries, and since this is her specialty, it is the only criteria necessary to earn her a 5 out of 5 from me, plus bonus points for personality. The fries were crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. Perfectly done and of course, fresh cut. She also gave us some of her homemade dips to try, which were fantastic. She helped us find a brewery after we mentioned our interest in beer, and just kind of "hung out" with us. I feel like I met a new friend. If you're in Charlottetown, definitely visit this awesome lady and try her fries!

We visited the Chip Shack whilst in Charlottetown recently and it was a wonderful supper. We are from the UK and so have had one or two fish and chip suppers in our time, but this was the best ever! Superb tasting batter which Caron explained was gluten free and it was delicious. We were only in Charlottetown for the one night; had we stayed for longer we would have eaten here again! Excellent value too and with free hugs!:))

We visited this restaurant while on a food tour in Charlottetown and weren't disappointed! While only a little 'shack', this place delivers the tastiest fries I've had. The owner, "The Queen of Fries", was super friendly and a true believer in her product.

These are the best fish and chips I have ever had! It is amazing the great food that comes from such a little shack by the water. The fish was a wonderful gluten free treat! We were going to just have a snack and split one order, but the fish and chips were so good, we ordered two and made a meal of it!
