The food is good. The restaurant itself seemed more like a lunch counter. We were in town for a romantic couples getaway for my 50th birthday. We couldn’t get in to The Blue Mussel which looked like a better restaurant. I’ll never know because the...area wasn’t what we had hoped for so we won’t be back.More

Nice people on a slow Sunday afternoon. Fun food including the craziest burger I have ever seen. Prosciutto, plus Sicilian olives on top! And read the story about the Lost Anchor in the dining room.

This was a great little restaurant to stop at after exploring the area. The menu was small, I would assume because of Covid, but it was a great menu to choose from. My friend had the lobster (whole) and the gal was super kind to...help her figure out how to get into it. I had the lobster sliders and they were delicious. Service was excellent.More

Everything was super delicious!!!! As 2 couples, everyone agreed their apps and entrées were the best they've had across the island including the seafood chowder, lobster dinner, lobster roll, and haddock tacos. Wow. Highly recommend this little gem!

We found the food acceptable but a bit underwhelming for the area. The mussels were quite tiny and there was only a small amount of sauce in the bottom of the bowl. My wife had fish and chips. Very heavily battered and the fries were...rather overcooked (dry). No fault of the restaurant… we attempted to sit on the second level patio but the mosquitos were ferocious. We switched to inside. We’ll try another spot tonight….More

The perfect lunch spot for a relaxed day enjoying the island. The fish tacos were delicious. The fries were crisp and flavorful. Our server was delightful and thorough.

We went mid afternoon on a Saturday so the wait was minimal. We shared a bowl of chowder and love it. My husband had the fish and chips (2 pieces). The batter on the fish was perfect. He asked for extra crispy fries and they...arrived extra crispy! We took one piece of fish and some fries home. I had the Sicilian burger with sweet potato fries. The burger was fantastic with a lovely soft but hardy bun. Service was excellent. Our waitress Kiah was a ray of sunshine. The only downfall was that they just changed their menu and it was much smaller than the one online.More

Excellent service, pleasant staff and out of this world seafood! The place is a bit hard to find but near Anne of Green Gables Heritage Site ( across Tim Hortons) Nice ambiance, we were greeted by young staff. Seafood Chowder was the best anywhere and...I have tried them in Boston, Peggy's Cove etc ! It had ALL types of chunky seafood -large chunks of lobster pieces, mussels, shrimp,clam and fish etc. Hardly any potoroos and not too rich which helped us with our main courses -Lobster Sliders with chunky potatoes salad and Fish Tacos with lots of fries -we could not finish the fries or potatoes! Amazing place -a must after visiting Anne of Green Gables siteMore
