A full lobster each for our main meal plus a bit of salad. The lobster was cooked perfectly. The salad was ok but could have done with a bit more. I had a glass of wine while my husband had a bottle of the local...beer. All followed by the obligatory blueberry pieMore

Our cruise ship excursion stopped at the Prince Edward Island Preserve Company for lunch where our group was served a whole lobster lunch with all the trimmings. Service was wonderful as was the meal. Knew from the quality of the raspberry cream pie dessert that...we needed to stop by their shop after lunch to check out their preserves. Was able to sample their products and purchased a few to carry home. Definitely a place to have a meal when on the Island.More

We were part of a tour group and this is one of the places we had dinner. They served a potato pie which is one of the best things I have ever eaten. It was made with Prince Edward Island potatoes and bacon and cheese-what's...not to like. The gift shop is also very nice and they have all kinds of interesting preserves and products to buy. It was a really nice experience.More

We actually did not eat there, except for the many free samples! The store sells a diverse variety of preserves and offers lots of free samples. The selection is excellent and everything tasted great. Check this store out!

We enjoyed a walk through the gardens prior to getting lunch at the restaurant. An hour well spent. My wife had the maritime medley seafood bubbly bake and enjoyed her selection. I had the potato pie and really enjoyed this unique dish, particularly the honey...sauce on the pie which was exquisite. The salads with the meals were tasty. Service was very good. The view of the water from the dining room is great. Check out the fine gift shop for preserves and other things.More

The wait was outrageously long!!! This place changed management 2 years ago. We arrived and gave our names at 1012. It is presently 12:33 and we are not fed. We stayed simply to see how bad it was going to be. We let another couple...we did not know sit with us who would have had to wait longer since we were seated at a four person table. Talking to them helped pass the time. I would strongly suggest that if you go here, have a reservation. While writing this my food came at 1240. When the owner found out we were upset, she very graciously offered to reimburse us but we opted for store product as the jam really is second to none! BTW they have gf optionsMore

Beautiful gardens with lots of family friendly surprises along the way. Animals to pet, games to play, and beautiful trail along the water. The jam tasting was delightful and we couldn't resist buying some! The restaurant was beautiful and delicious!!! The kids loved the nachos!...I loved the fish tacos and chips and salsa!More

Stopped in for a beauty of a lunch for 5x. Mussels, fish tacos and some potato pie for the adults, grilled cheese and a jam sandwich (made from the excellent preserves sold next door) for the kiddos. Everything was fresh, served hot and the service...was efficient and friendly. Could ask for a nicer lunch out.More

" Potato Pie " and " Seafood Bubbly" a difficult choice....both sooo good !! We were there for dinner ( recommend reservation) , but, both available on luncheon menu. Guarantee you will enjoy !!! Placed my order in advance. Was boxed & ready for pick...up. I visited the sample area AGAIN, and had to shop again. If you have a diabetic family or friend.......their " sugar free" jams make a perfect gift.More

Though we had lunch in the restaurant, for the life of me I can’t remember any details! But I do recommend stopping in the gift shop where they sell their locally made jams and jellies including some unusual flavors like lime. All flavors can be...sampled. The best part is that if you buy $100 (CAD) worth of products, there is free shipping to the US. I took advantage of the offer to stock up. The well-packed box arrived home in about 10 days. From the gift shop, there is a window so you can peek into the factory.More

We visited Prince Edward Island Preserve Company as part of a motor coach tour sponsored by our cruise ship. The facility is charming...we were ushered into the roomy and bright dining room where we were offered the choice of Potato Pie or Steamed Lobster. I...chose the lobster, which was small, perhaps a little over a pound, but well-prepared and accompanied by potato salad and Cole Slaw. I enjoyed my meal. Staff was friendly and efficient. Afterward, I visited the gift shop where I enjoyed looking at the preserves, jellies, and jams. I bought some salmon pate and smoked mussels. This is a nice facility and I would recommend to any and all visiting the area. Enjoy.More

Aimed at motor coach crowd. Lots of seniors were there. Seemed to be a random place - no real connection to the community it was in, that we could see. They promoted that they had airplane-size jams but none were on display to purchase.

Despite is fine location I would advise consumers to avoid this place because they appear to have a permanent wait list despite having many open tables. It may be possible that the hostess is expecting $20 dollar bill in order to get a table or...it’s simply poor management. Poor management equates to a poor eating experience. There are many equally fine restaurants in the area so I have come to the conclusion that 4 rebuffs in a row means that 25 years of patronage must come to an end….More

Sorry for your experience with us. We are currently experiencing a labour shortage. We are only seating what our kitchen can produce in a timely fashion. We should have this sorted out soon. Again sorry for the wait to be seated. Sincerely. Adam

On a bus tour - and we had time to walk through the Hope Garden - beautiful vistas looking out over the quiet river. The goats/horses who live there are quite lucky! The shop - a wonderful experience! Lots of tasty jams, teas and many...more items to purchase. The new owner of the Company spoke with us and shared how she and her husband have taken over from the prior owner. A very smooth transition indeed!More
