We tried lobster rolls in various places and we thought this was the best. It was also quick with a lovely place to eat outside. Consider the larger sized rolls. It isn't longer, they just put more lobster in if one likes a greater lobster...More

I’ve been eating lobster rolls all over the maritimes and this was one of the best. I liked I could go half & half (buttered on one side & mayo the other). I got the big one and it was a treat.

Thanks Chris. I’m sorry we didn’t make it clear that every roll is made to order. We could easily do one without celery (and with any other customizations). Thanks for taking the time to let us know. DAVE

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
