The restaurant was on a point of land mostly surrounded by water, except the little road that turned off from the main road out of Shediac toward PEI. My best lobster dinner ever!

Nothing says “fun in the Maritimes” more than a pic with the giant lobster! Aside from some fun pics, the small shops offered a nice array of souvenirs. It was walking distance to the Shediac Lobster Shop were you could get both raw and cooked...More
