“Great Lobster Rolls”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Perfect downtown location close to the harbour. The lobster rolls were overflowing with fresh lobster meat. I thought that I had to go to Cape Cod for lobster rolls this good - no need now! Grilled cheese sandwich in the same rolls were also excellent.
Highly recommended!

“Treat yourself”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

Best way to get a quick, authentic lobster fix in Charlottetown. No bib required! Dave's Lobster is a bright little spot in a corner of Founder's Hall, a repurposed train repair shop on the waterfront. The sunny outdoor patio has a great view of Confederation Landing Park. I've had both lobster rolls and the taco, but I keep going back to "The Local" -- a traditional lobster roll, lightly toasted with butter and stuffed with a very generous portion of fresh lobster.

“Best lobster taco on Prince Edward Island!! Try it!!”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Really nice, simple concept lobster restaurant. Located on waterfront with a nice stone patio facing the sunset plus a nice eat in area as well. My personal favourite is the Lobster Taco. TONS of lobster with fresh lime and cilantro with zesty slaw! So good!! Don't miss this spot when in Charlottetown. Excellent quick service and delicious food. Two thumbs up!!:)

“Above my expectations!”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

I did lunch here today with two friends! It was delicious! The quantity of lobster was very good, along with the quantity - you could really taste the lobster in the bun. The bun was excellent, buttered and toasted just right!! I had "The Local" and it is what I feel a true lobster role should be! And it comes with a bag of chips, which I truly enjoy with any sandwich!! Great value for your money!

“Great food and location”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

The lobster tacos are amazing. There is so much lobster in them and the rolls, it's a full meal. Very kid friendly option of grilled cheese as well. Great atmosphere and lovely sunny patio in a great location for people watching and close to everything. We will be back for sure.
