I had a lobster roll at different restaurants each day of vacation on the island. This was by far the most delicious lobster roll I’ve ever had. Line can be very long but it moves quick and you get your food in a timely fashion....More

Best fish & chips I’ve tasted: crispy (panko-style crust rather than a thick batter), flavorful, not too heavy. This no-frills casual spot is popular with locals for good reason.

My parents recommended it...when we got there, and I saw the costs, I wasn't sure I wanted to stay. It was more expensive than the last fish and chips place we had gone, but I'm glad we stayed. We got a lot more food for...More

Been coming to PEI for almost 20 years and of course, you must sample sea food , specifically, fish and chips. This is my criteria, the fish has to be fresh not frozen and, the fries have to be hand cut and not frozen. There...More
