“Oooooh, sooo gooood!”
Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

Just before leaving PEI we decided to make one last stop for one last lobster roll - and it was THE BEST one of the trip! I had the Some Fancy roll which is the warm variety with juicy chunks of lobster pan fried in butter. I'd been looking for one of these all over, but most places on the island only serve the cold, mayo type.

The $15 sandwich was generous, served on a perfectly toasted soft bun with a pickle spear and bag of chips on the side. If there was a Dave's in Toronto, I'd eat one of these everyday!

As for the traditional cold roll, my husband tried it and agreed that it was the best of the ones we tried (at water-prince and row house).

“Best Lobster Rolls in PEI”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Amazing lobster rolls on Charlottetown's water front at Founders Hall. There are different types ,the Taco one is great but I also love the original . Worth the price because there is lots of lobster. The deck is great on a warm day. I would say these are the best lobster rolls on PEI and I have tried many of them.

“Lobster roll - finest kind!”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

Friendly efficient service; both the bread used for the roll and the lobster filling were excellent. For one who proclaims to be willing to pay for quality, and if you pay cheap, cheap is what you get, I found Dave's lobster excellent and did not mind paying for it! Quantity and quality - can't beat that combination.
Don't ask for french fries - I don't think they don't have a deep fryer on site - that is good! The choices of a bag of potato chips (crisps to the British) were tasty and set off the lobster roll just right.
Go - you won't be disappointed!
