Delicious lobster rolls served with a bag of chips and a drink. Expensive but worth treating yourself with! We ate there a couple of times as we travelled around PEI.

I don't read Chatelaine, but I really expected something amazing after seeing the Chatelaine magazine quotes this restaurant had up. So after ordering the hot and cold lobster rolls, I can safely say that I still won't read Chatelaine. Expensive, and service was a little...More

We each had a lobster roll. The quality was excellent as was the quantity. We know the lobster fishermen have been receiving a good price, but a lobster roll for two boggled the wallet.

Hi: The two closest hotels are: 1) If you want a chain, the Delta Prince Edward. 2) If you want a unique, local boutique inn I recommend The Great George. Hope to see you on PEI! DAVE
