Delicious down-home food with friendly service and reasonable prices. One of the few north shore spots open year-round. Great for take-out too!

Decent for the only place around in the winter. One of my criteria for judging a place is how much batter and oil they put on their fish for deep fried fish and chips. Staff okay but not brilliant. clean but light on the mood setting atmosphere. Caters to their market which is more for the physical worker.

We travelled to Cavenndish in the off-season and nothing was open, other than this local diner 'By the Bay' in Rustico. It was a good place to grab a quick meal. The menu options were standard for a local diner. Mostly fried and down-home cooking style; not the best place to watch what you are eating... but why would you? With a deep fried seafood platter to start... and the lobster burger to follow, it was a good meal! Friendly service and good food for a good value; definitely stop in when you are travelling through Rustico.

After travelling along the near-empty roads of PEI for several hours on a warm, sunny Saturday in April, we were surprised to find how little was open when we decided it was time for lunch. The guides at Green Gables advised us that this restaurant would be open. It has a simple, diner atmosphere, but everything is freshly made up for you and prepared exactly as you want it. Our waitress was incredibly friendly and helpful! The food was good, simple lunch food which suited us perfectly and didn't disappoint. The restaurant is exactly what it purports to be...and it does that well.

I admit, I eat here quite a bit in the summer. But the food is below average.
The thing is, it's cheap, and the place is friendly. What more do you want from a small fishing village?
