Review of Lin's Take Out

Lin's Take Out
Ranked #63 of 260 Restaurants in Charlottetown
Restaurant details
Reviewed 29 June 2014

My wife and I like finding restaurants (or a takeout place like Lin's) that are away from the normal tourist routes. And Lin's is certainly that. We had visited the National Park at the end of Greenwich Road and had spotted Lin's on the way in. We stopped on the way out to see what was being offered (we had brought a picnic lunch so this was supposed to be just a scouting mission). When we found out that Lin (the owner and chef) offered a mussel platter (steamed mussels (24)), French fries, Cole slaw, and roll and butter) for < $10 and homemade perogies (6 of her own) with sour cream for $4.25 we were "hooked". Our picnic lunch was put on hold and we ate at Lin's; there are 6 picnic tables with umbrellas so eating there was no problem. We paired this lunch with the wine that we had brought along and thoroughly enjoyed everything. The mussels were cooked perfectly and served immediately (hot from the steaming), melted butter was provided, the French fry portion was enormous (fries crisp and nicely coated), and the Cole slaw was among the best that we have had in a restaurant. The perogies were just as described homemade and lightly fried to perfection. We dipped them in the sour cream and they were gone almost immediately. When we left we told Lin and her husband Wes that we would most likely be back for dinner. We had planned on eating in Georgetown as part of our self guided tour of the PEI east end but finding Lin's had changed our plans. And just as we promised we were back for dinner at 7:00 PM. This time we again had the mussels (we could not control ourselves) but we bypassed the perogies in favor of 2 of the Lobster Burgers ($8.25); fresh lobster meat lightly warmed in butter and served on a grilled buttered roll (we declined the offer of tomato and lettuce in favor of just the lobster; and it was plentiful and flavorful). Overall a great day and two wonderful meals; we will definitely be back any time that we are in the area.
