“Low quality and high prices”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

The service staff were very pleasant, but the actual service was poor. Long wait for drinks. We ordered appetizers, ridiculously high price for very few, small, over cooked, frozen wings and the lobster salad rolls were not made fresh, limp lettuce, sat in its own juices and little lobster, very disappointing. This was a seafood dominated menu so I ordered ribs and wife ordered the prime rib. The server never returned to check on us, we actually got tired of waiting and had to go to the kitchen to advise that the prime rib was beyond well done instead of the requested rare. A manager never came over and there was no offer for any credit or complimentary ... anything. The entire table was done eating while my wife was still waiting for her meal. Never again.

“Comfy blankets”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

The Seafood Platter was pretty fresh. Our waitress also actually gave us comfy blankets to use, since the semi-outdoor seating area was pretty cold. Great service!

“Wish we could go all year!”
Reviewed September 3, 2012 via mobile

We have enjoyed the new owners menu and service all summer. Four times! Every time just gets better. The food is fresh and hot and clearly as advertised, made from scratch. Sad they sre seasonal. It's the best and the only place to eat in Summerside. If you have not gone, go before the end of the summer!

“Very very good food and staff”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Stopped by on a holiday, and a plus to them, they were one of the few restaurants open in town that day. Great server (Meg), fresh seafood appetizers, mussels and a killer 8 oz burger. Patio opens to the baywalk, so its fun to walk people go by. Limited parking "at the building" but the baywalk streetside runs along it, so a walk is really a few extra steps to the car. Excellent food, and although not cheap, it was worth the money. May be noisy later at night when the bar gets busy next door, so an earlier meal time may be preferred if you're no longer in your 20's or 30's.

“Would love to go back again!”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

My husband and I were recommended here by the bartender at our hotel. I'm not sure if the dining area is always an enlclosed-patio-type area at the back of the building but we loved it! The al fresco dining offered a beautiful view. Waitress was friendly and attended to us just enough. I was even offered a blanket by the hostess when she saw me put on my sweater. Our drinks arrived lickity split. My husband and I both had lobster suppers and they were the sweetest lobster we've ever had! Seafood chowder and mashed potatoes were great. Coleslaw was a little dry though.
