I was so incensed to see the CBC news story on the City of Charlottetown bowing to pressure by established restauranteurs to shut down The Chip Shack, which is a breath of fresh air in downtown Charlottetown, where delicious fries are prepared and served to enthusiastic tourists and locals. It is so typical of the "establishment" to try to crush the up and coming innovative entrepreneur, especially in light of the fact that she is successful, popular, and meeting a need in our community, which only adds to the quaint and interesting spirit of this City. The owner should be whole-heartedly supported. Why shut down something that is an asset to our City? This is an absolutely unnecessary and unreasonable decision. There ought to be a petition, which is a way to fight back and not to accept the nathsayers's view of what is a great eating option for visitors and Islanders alike!

I had wanted to try as many fish and chips as possible when in PEI so when I saw this little shack I felt I had to try it.

The lady was lovely and we had a conversation about our travels and the fish and chips were great for lunch. A good price for a great lunch meal...don't miss it when out in PEI plus you can get a free hug :)

An enjoyable experience on the waterfront in the City of Charlottetown located next to Founder's Hall. Stop by and make your day one you will not forget. You will be glad you did.

I am a local resident of Charlottetown, PEI and I ate at the Chip Shack for the 1st time during the summer of 2013. I loved the lobster roll, fries with ketchup, fries with chocolate sauce, caramel and cinnamon, and the deep fried apple slices with cinnamon and caramel, all of them were to die for! I have yet to try the gluten free fish and chips and poutine, but I will definitely go back next summer to try those too! Karen who owns The Chip Shack is one of the nicest people I have ever met working in the food service industry and she will make sure you're happy with your food!
