Went for lunch early October. Staff were polite and the place has a cute little vibe. Only complaint was the fish seemed different. Not sure what type of fish they use, my guess is it was previously frozen, or they are using a low grade generic white fish. I could be wrong. Prices a little on high side - but... More

This little place has the best seafood chowder. I found the scallops to be very good and the lobster looked fantastic but was not hungry enough to tackle one. I would go back there and hope to some time to try the lobster. I would suggest making reservations since it is very small and quite busy in the evening.

Simply put, get there either well before lunch hour or well after. You will not find it easy to get a seat. Lobster was 33 dollars for the first pound and 5 dollars for every extra quarter pound but it comes with an enormous bowl of mussels! Worth it for good lobster. I had a 1.25 lobster which was perfect... More

A phone call got us a reservation at a very popular restaraunt in downtown Charlottetown. It is located in a small, older converted house. Lots of history with pictures on the wall of celebrity visits let's you know of the popularity of this restaraunt. Our family of 5 enjoyed the lobster dinner with chowder or mussels to start and your... More

On their last night of the season, we ordered their lobster dinner and scallop dinner. The lobster dinner came with a mediocre, fairly salty seafood chowder (or mussels). The lobster was boiled and good; the home cut fries were delicious. The scallops were over cooked, dry and rubbery. Disappointing for a restaurant which specializes in seafood. The potato salad was... More

This was a great place to start our seafood adventures in the Maritimes! The staff was very friendly and welcoming. We were seated by the window so we could people watch, which was great! The chowder and biscuit were delicious ... lots of seafood in the chunky chowder and very fresh biscuit! Followed this with Fish Cakes with fries, slaw... More

When you drive around Prince Edward Island, you will probably notice that just about every restaurant seems to offer a Lobster Dinner and even many of the churches too! You can’t go wrong with a Lobster Dinner from the Water Prince Corner Shop and Lobster Pound; delicious food and great atmosphere. It is a small place with only a few... More

We came here based on a recommendation while we were in Charlottetown. Their chowder is full of chunky seafood and potatoes and their mussels and lobster were thoroughly juicy and yummy. However if you want to go there you'd better be quick because they're closing down at the end of October and won't be reopening till May. What a shame!

The first night that we stopped in here, while we were on holidays, we were told that we couldn't come in, without a reservation! Even though it wasn't busy. We tried it a few days later. Had their chowder. It was good. Service was not. Our server was not friendly. Seemed like she just didn't want to be there. Wasn't... More
