Unlike the previous review, several locals actually recommended this place. From my experience, locals do not avoid his area. Went today and had the clam platter which was very good & at a perfect price for the portion. I couldn't finish my plate. The place...is short staffed but service was good & very friendly when we called to reserve.More

Awful quality, tiny portions, mean staff. The owner is unethical and locals know to avoid this place. Stay away!!!!!

We visited PEI and had lobster rolls at several places. By far, this was the best one we had. Toasted bread and huge chunks of lobster! Everyone was very friendly! We also had the chowder and oysters. They were also delicious. Will definitely be back!

The atmosphere is awesome, the staff are typical islander friendly too. However, I had the Halibut dinner. The only thing wrong with it, was the small portion of fish for the price. It was very tasty, fresh and well plated. But I've had bigger portions...for the same $$ We will be back.More

I must admit that I have never dined at the Water Prince Corner Shop before even though I live in the same city. This is primarily a seafood restaurant and they specialize in lobster. My wife had the lobster roll and I had fried clams...and chips. Very very good. Unfortunately I cannot speak for the restaurant itself as we did take out. I can tell you that the staff I encountered were very friendly and helpful. It is not a very large restaurant so I would reccomend a reservation. If you are visiting our fair Isle I would suggest you have a meal here and enjoy the harvest from our sea.More

We lived in PEI 7 years and this is the first time we try Water Prince Corner Shop. We are a family of three, and we ordered fish and chips, steamed clams and a lobster supper, total spent $135 including 15% tips. Food quality is...above average but we do not feel welcoming, the lady serve us was pretty blunt. I observed the service provided by other waiter and waitress are good. I rather spend the same amount of money in Lobster Barn or Papa Joes with both good food and service. I do not think I will go back again.More

We were staying at the hostel and one night did a lobster boil with scallops and shrimp......bought courtesy of the Water Prince. Great service and great food. Then when ate in at the last minute....full lobster dinner. Absolutely awesome!

busy time Cnada Day on the water front, still we got there at a good time, maybe had to wait about 15-20 minutes, however , that said we had a waitress tell us m "shouldn't be long, just cleaning up a couple of tables outside",...so we were good. about 10 minutes later she came by again and said, " just clearing a table for you, be right back" ( I was already impressed by this gesture). Sure enough, got sat 2 minutes later and then handed menus. On her next time by, she said " I guess you can see we're really swamped, two more people are just leaving and I need to clear those tables, so won't be long". so 25 minutes in we ordered. I had an amazing lobster roll and a side of delicious scallops, husband had great fish and chips.. Hoping to get back someday.. if there were 10 stars, they rate that, I HAVE NEVER had experienced before or since such superb service...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
