This is a small French fry hut with excellent food. It looks unattractive but is clean and the food is great. It is a must stop on the waterfront if your are looking for something inexpensive and tasty for a lunch.

I found this restaurant very relaxing. It is outside so am not sure what happens in the winter if they have a indoor seating. The chips were excellent and the service was great. The prices were fine. They have large variety of chips.

I live here seasonally. There is no way I can skip getting my delicious apple fries with caramel topping about once a week. Since I know I am heading home soon, I doubled up my order. I sat in the beautiful sunshine, while I munched.

Seriously the best poutines I've had on the island! Amazing fries, cheese curds, and gravy. A must when your looking to grab something quick and tasty. You won't be disappointed.

this tiny little yellow shack attracts a lot of people. It's outdoor eating, but there is a building right next door. The fries are superb. The apple fries were great. Not exactly fast food, but worth the stop. Right outside the cruise terminal.

Not too fancy ( I.e. Shack! ) but Caron and her food are excellent....sit on benches outside and enjoy her culinary delights. Just outside the Port of Charlottetown, Caron is a warm and friendly gal matching her good food. My favourite fries were always in...More
