A nothing to write home about restaurant setting unless the weather is really nice and one can sit outside and fend off the wasps. The oysters however were excellent in spite of the fact they grade them by size and price. Small at $2.50 each,...medium at $3.00 each and large at $4.00 each. The lobster roll was "Market Price" (which I always think is code for charge what you can) and we were given a light on lobster content roll for $27.00 which was disappointing seeing that we had a much meatier and heftier roll the day before at On The Dock Eatery in North Rustico for $20.00 and without the "Market Price" declaration. I would return for the oysters but little else.More

Beautiful view from the patio. Nice live music. Tasty food, local beer and great service. They shuck oysters on the patio for guests to see. My family and I loved this place and look forward to visiting again.

Went this weekend not overly busy at all it was 2 adults and 1 small child.. First made me get my own highchair no direction at all ok no problem second ordered drinks beer and pop.. Beer came pop never did ok I will have...water... Ordered waited 15 min for her to come back and say they didnt have again no problem... Food comes a plate is put in fron of the child hotter then any food I have ever eaten.. She burned her hands cried and cried... Next literally blew on her food for what seemed like hours there was steam still rising and somehow they thought this was a great idea to put in front of a two year old... She comes back 20 min later and makes a joke oh you finally stopped crying hey... I WAS FLOORED.. Prices are way way more then its worth and I for one will never be backMore

Ate at this restaurant today for first time, staff friendly. Both my wife and I ordered Fish and Chips, didn’t have to wait long before meal arrived but then came disappointment. Fish tasted old, fries mediocre, spoonful of coleslaw was o.k, bill came close to...$43.00 for both meals plus 2 pops. My wife ate barely any of her meal, when asked if something was wrong, she said was more than she could eat but was really because fish tasted old. Too bad, because the atmosphere on the deck overlooking the Stanley Bridge Harbour was pleasant and relaxing but will not return to this restaurant. I can’t believe Island Restaurants can’t serve a decent Fish and Chip meal and why are they so scared to give more than a spoonful of coleslaw, maybe because it’s usually tasteless!More

We came here as we’ve been here before; what a decline! We had chowder, really fishy, this bubble bake, that they claimed was amazing, which was THE WORST!! Watery & had no taste AT ALL!! The view is fantastic. The shrimp was over cooked, 6...for $16! No sides.. Really disappointing..More

As always the food was delightful and amid Covid the service remains friendly and accommodating. Our family of 15 ordered a full meal and every part was fabulous. Do not miss this restaurant- in person or via takeaway.

It was quiet when I was there in October but it was early in the evening as well. It was my first PEI restaurant and I was still overwhelmed I was actually on the island. Food was very good, staff welcoming and friendly. My first...of many nights of seafood. I was also pleasantly surprised at the lovely giftshop that was attached to the restaurant.More

I had the raw oysters and a lobster roll and my wife had the fish and chips. We were both very satisfied with our lunch. Large portion of fish and a nice batter that wasn't too thick. More fish than batter which is desirable. My...oysters were fresh as was the lobster in my lobster roll. Definitely recommend.More

I have been here many, many times and I keep coming back for myself and with guests. IMHO, this is the best clam chowder on PEI. They have plenty of local shellfish (mussel, oyster, quahogs, clams, lobster). The service staff is experienced and efficient. In...comparison across PEI, their prices are very fair. The location is excellent, the settling is beautiful and there is ample indoor and outdoor seating. Other favorites of mine are fish tacos, seafood chowder and lobster roll (unadorned lobster on a toasted bun with both house mayo and melted butter on the side. Potato salad is excellent. Thank you, Phyllis and everyone. I'll be back.More

Six of us stayed nearby for a week arriving on the 15th and this was our "go to" restaurant. All of the dishes were very good and all of our waitresses were friendly and helpful.
