“Yum!”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

Lobster rolls by the water front! Why didnt I think of that? Great little spot for a grab and go lobster roll, its tasty plus gives ya the option to have a warm buttered lobster vs the mayo chilled one. Some people complain about $15 lobster rolls.... guess what people... lobster isnt that cheap?!?! Its designed for tourist, and it fits the bill. Enjoy

“Good Lobster Roll”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

Stopped by today with the family so that I could try the lobster roll as it was ranked 2nd on Tripadvisor for the area. The lobster roll was pretty good but nothing special. It had big chunks of lobster but was missing something, needed to be more juicy-more mayo. Bun was pretty poor for a $15 roll - more fluffy and less like toast bread.

“Excellent Lobster Roll in Charlottetown Waterfront Area”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Finally a real, quality lobster roll in place famous for it's terrific lobster. $15.00 roll in a few different styles. I had them all and think everyone should try one of each! The Local is a perfect homemade bun stuffed with delicious lightly dressed and seasoned mayo. Nothing to get in the way of all that lobster, just makes it even better. The Fancy is closer to CT style, warmed in butter, drizzled with butter, served in that buttered, toasted roll. This one calls for wine, the others for beer. Totally different again is the lobster taco.... Served in a fresh tortilla with a spicy slaw and topped with cilantro. All were served with New Brunswick potato chips in different favors. The restaurant is spotless, there is a big deck with umbrellas, free wifi and music playing. The service is really friendly and helpful. Go on your first day in a PEI so you can go back again.

“GREAT LOBSTER ROLL!!!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

This is one of the best Lobster Rolls we have had in PEI. Great location on the waterfront. Great place for visiting boaters to walk over to in Founders Hall. We will definitely be back.
