We found this place by a recommendation of the local person we met in passing at a nearby parking lot. And BOY did we thank him in our thoughts later! This place is small, but the tastes here are huge. It definitely has significant wait...times, because people in the know gravitate there, but the wait was definitely worth it. Everything we had was very delicious and the service was quick and efficient! I only wish they would have disclosed the price of Lobster roll (only listed as Market Price on the menu) when people order it.More

Recently had dinner at the Water Prince. We made a reservation thankfully as there was a long line outside for a table. The food and service was awesome.

Loved the cute decor here with all of the license plates but now let's talk about the food. This restaurant served up some incredibly fresh and deliciously prepared seafood. We had the best lobster of our entire trip in this restaurant, it was fresh as...can be, succulently sweet and cooked to perfection. Nothing could quite compare. The fish and chips were also quite good and the lobster roll was one of our top 2 faves on the trip. People are always coming in an taking photos of the license plates though so if you are seated along the wall, you may wind up in some photos if you don't mind.More

The restaurant is on Water Street and Prince Street by the waterfront. It was very busy during lunch hour but worth the wait! The lobster is by market price and sold in different weight classes (1, 1.5, 2, 2.5 and 3). I got the lobster...and was very pleased with the freshness. My partner had clams and chips and it was filling for him. The best part of this restaurant is you can buy lobster or seafood to bring onto your flight. The box costs $15 and you can fill up to 15lbs. The salesperson was very patient with my questions regarding the seafood and price inquiry. I highly recommend this restaurant to eat or buying seafood to go!!!More

We purchased fish and oysters to take home to cook during our visit to PEI. The shop is family owned, has the freshest fish, and are quite accommodating. A really good way to get fresh seafood you cook at your home (provided you know what...you are doing). We went twice! The oysters were particularly tasty.More

We had the lobster supper, it was delicious ! The potato salad on the side was fantastic as well as the seafood chowder. We ordered the lemon cheesecake for dessert , recommended by our waitress, it was amazing ! The only disappointing thing were the...picnic tables outside, very uncomfortable on your back , but the food delicious !More

We weren't sure where to eat in Charlottetown (some places were full by the time we began calling around to make reservations). We feel so fortunate to have stumbled upon Water Prince Corner Shop & Lobster Pound. This spot is part-restaurant, part fish market. Lots...of locals enjoying family dinners here (always a good sign). The staff are very friendly. The food is delicious (the seafood chowder is a MUST-try). Highly recommend!More

The food was incredible and worth the trip to PEI! Definitely recommend the lobster roll (the best we had on our trip, and we ate many in both PEI and Maine!), seafood chowder and Malpeque oysters. Service was prompt. Restaurant was clean. You'll eat extremely...well here. Wish we were in town longer to try everything on the menu. It's busy though, so might have to wait for a table, but trust me, the wait is worth it.More

Excellent fresh seafood. You must stop here, and try anything. Chowder, mussels, oysters or lobster, we tried them all and they were amazing.

Any trip here is worth the distance and any wait. I was so excited watching the food go by I ordered both the Chowder dinner and the Lobster Roll.. then ate them both. Book in ahead of time if possible because it’s a small location,...or grab takeout and head to a local park. Lots of other food options in the city, but this is the place to go.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

Unfortunately unless it is a service animal we are not able to have animals in any dining areas. This is a Dept of Health regulation, not our decision. We have a letter from them dated July 2017 that makes it clear animals... More
