What a simple, yet very nice restaurant to start off my PEI visit. Whatever you order, have a Beach Chair Lager with it. (the guy with me had the Salmon Dinner and loved it)

I was in Charlottetown on a cruise ship and made a return visit to WPCS & LP. Even in +/- off-season they have a line-up for their small and eclectic restaurant. I ordered the Island Mussels. Local mussels steamed with white wine, celery and carrots....More

Oh my! This totally unassuming little locals' place serves the BEST seafood chowder I have ever eaten. Yes, we found it and tried it because it was identified as THE place for lunch by a fellow cruiser. The seating is limited. There is outdoor seating....More

We were surprised that a worker in a competing restaurant steered us to the Water Prince Shop. We had a short wait but it was so worth it. There must have been 3-4 dozen mussels for $12.75 Canadian. Excellent quality and expertly prepared. The fish...More

This place came highly recommended, and we were excited to try the seafood. My husband chose the crab legs and I had the fish and chips. Good enough, not exceptional. What turned us off somewhat was the service - our server seemed to ignore us,...More

Not recommended by motel but highly rated by fellow TA reviewers who were right on. Small corner location with minimal street parking. Not a large dining area and we were there in off-season early in evening and it was busy. Although we didn’t have reservations,...More

Unfortunately we do not accept reservations for lunch when a cruise ship is in. The cruise ships dock about two blocks from our location and there is a lot of foot traffic. We often have a line up at the door on these days... More
