This is a great stop when you're in Charlottetown! Yummy, affordable eats. We shared the lobster poutine and it was very good - very rich and filling but it is salty so be forewarned (we thought this is to be expected with fries). Owner is friendly and prices are reasonable (note: cash only). Try it out!

The lobster roll was excellent! And the Handcut PEI fries are the best! All for $12 taxes included. Caron, the Queen of Fries, has a fabulous personality, always has a big smile and a free hug! It's a must visit.

I have had 5 poutines in my traveling around Canada and these ones were the best. Great fries (real potatoes), lovely sauce and friendly service. (Jarda from the Czech Republic)

Excellent Gluten-free Fish and Chips. Battered fresh not sitting for hrs or days and not pre-made by some big company!

Went here because of the rave reviews and word-of-mouth saying these were the best fries ever. They were pretty average fries and quite salty. Try it out if you want - we just thought they were okay!
