It was really busy on Canada Day, but knowing how good this place is, we wanted to eat here anyway. Food was excellent. but the service was slow. This couldn't be helped, everyone wanted to eat here and all the tables were full. We shared an outside table with 4 others we didn't know. This seems crazy, but it was kind of fun to do on Canada Day. Everyone was in such a good mood and no one seemed to mind this. The owner apologized several times when I was paying my bill for the slow service. I told him it was alright, food was great and we got to talk to other tourist while we waited. I would recommend this place as the food is outstanding.

We were directed here by a local, and were not disappointed in his suggestion. The seafood chowder was amazing - full of seafood and served with a warm fresh biscuit. I had the haddock fish n chips which came with fresh green beans and cole slaw. The fish was nicely done , the fries were just ok, the would really have benefitted from the "fry twice" school of making french fries. My wife had the mussels served with melted butter and were sweet and perfect. Our waitress was very prompt and courteous. Overall a very pleasant meal and experience.

We usually go to the big lobster supper places on the island but we decided to try something in town for a change. Are we ever glad we did! We had the lobster here and it was fresh and excellent. The chowder and the mussels were among the best I have ever had. The staff are locals and it shows - excellent service and very easy to talk to with a lot of pride and knowledge about PEI. This place has maritime character. Definitely coming back here for my seafood from now on, Make a reservation though - very popular.

We had heard great things about this place so we thought we would try it. We went in late but the place was busy but we got a table right away. We waited between 15 to 20 mins without anyone acknowledging our presence. No drinks, no food, no comments on how they had not forgotten us. We finally got tired and decided to leave, the waitress finally came and sarcastically told us "sorry we could not gotten to you faster". The comment was not needed and nor appreciated.

We came in to buy some pre-cooked lobsters to have at home for dinner. The waitress was super helpful! The size of lobster we wanted had just gone in to cook so she asked if we could come back to pick them up in 45 minutes.
When she got back, the lobsters were ready, she had our coleslaw and potato salad put aside (delicious by the way), and was willing to put some butter in a container for us since we didn't have enough at home.
Great prices, great service, will go back for sure. Check it out!
