We went to 21 Breakwater on the advice of locals and were glad that we did. The fish is battered in a slightly different manner than what we have come to expect and it was delicious. Others at the table had burgers and were happy with those as well, they were well balanced and cooked nicely. All of us had gotten fries with our meal but upon seeing other diners with the salad we determined that we should have done salad instead. The fries were cook but the salad looked great. Staff were very kind when asking us to wear masks when not at the table. Masking isn't required everywhere when we were traveling and we were happy to comply with their request once we were made aware. The grounds are beautiful, on another visit we would sit outdoors to fully appreciate the views.

Located in a renovated house overlooking the bay, this restaurant offers great views while dining. We were squeezed in as a late booking as we didn't have reservations. We tried the Portuguese fish and chips which were delightfully spiced and tasty, the lobster crab dip, and apple crisp were also really good. The menu is more mixed with less emphasis on seafood comparatively to other area restaurants. Service was friendly and well paced. If you want to sit in the lounge chairs and catch the beautiful bay view make sure you do it before closing time.

I went to 21Breakwater restaurant last week and had the Portuguese fish and chips and my husband had the burger.Both were delicious and I would recommend them. The fish was perfectly cooked and very flavorful .It came with a small very tasty green salad .The hamburger was cooked to perfection and my husband said that it was very tasty. The view of the Souris harbor was incredible and we saw the ferry depart for the Magdalen Islands as we sat on the deck enjoying the beautiful summer day. Overall a great experience and I would recommend it and I hope to be back soon the next time I am in Souris!

I had heard a lot of good thing about this place and wanted to try it as my work had taken me to the area. i arrived about 2pm and when I walked in the dining room was empty as I expected. The first greeting I received eas veing told I had to wear a mask to walk across the empty dining room. I would have preferred a hello or welcome but whatever. I heard the chicken wings were amazing so I ordered them and a side salad. What I received were literally the tiniest wings I had ever seen, I am sure the hummingbird population had been stripped of there ability to fly. The salad however was great but I was still hungry do to the lack of protein from the chicken flavoured toothpicks. When my bill came I realized ai had paid roughly $2.00 a wing for the order and my side salad was charged as a regular salad. I told the waitress I thought they had made a mistake. I was informed that because I hadn’t ordered an entree that the side salad wasn't applicable. So with Lunch and a soda, I left nearly $50 poorer. So the next time you want to spend $50 on a meal and still be hungry, thisbis the place for you. And whatever you do, don’t forget your mask incase you need to walk across the empty dining room.

The Breakwater was recommended by the staff at the Inn at Bay Fortune where we were staying. The restaurant staff were helpful and efficient. The house side salad with beets, cranberries, goat cheese etc was very tasty. We both ordered the ribeye steaks which were cooked properly but mine had lots of gristle and fat and was hard to cut. I wonder if they just got a bad cut of meat. Too bad. The house fries were tasty.

When we first arrived, we were told that it was completed, even though it was half-empty. We made reservations for 2 days after; We were giving a very small table for four persons and I did ask for another table, which was all available. We were told that it wasn't possible and that all the other tables were reserved. They did not try to find any solution! And should I repeat, the place was again half-empty. They made the experience unpleasant and made us feel unwelcome! The plates were OK; The fish and chips was far from expected and the salmon and shrimp plate was swimming in a bath of butter. Did not finish the plate and they didn't wonder or ask why! During our dinner, we noticed a lot of clients wanted to come and being turned away! They all noticed the empty tables and left pretty angry! Obviously, they are sitting on the good reviews and are very complacent; Don't forget, most of Souris restaurants are ''shack'' or ‘’on the go food’’! 21 Breakwater is the only restaurant with a dining room, so for sure, it is highly rated! Do not recommend! Avoid this place!

My wife and I have eaten at 21 Breakwater on a number of occasions; I'll be there after the boys basketball game tomorrow evening. Food and service are excellent. The 'sticky-date' pudding is incredible...I've often thought of having the pudding as all three courses...if it wasn't for the other great choices.

We didn’t have a reservation but the friendly staff were kind enough to accommodate us. The food was exceptional. The server was very friendly and the feel of the place was very upscale and casual at the same time. I would highly recommend this if you are in area. It’s not at all like most restaurants and has such a beautiful unique vibe. We had the wings, house salad (the best I’ve had) and fish and chips which was delicious.

Lovely atmosphere, great building and very friendly staff. The food was the best prepared we have had in 3 weeks in the Maritimes. Lovely fresh simple food well prepared. Make a reservation or you may not be lucky!

The restaurant is quant, clean, and lovely! We both travel for work and eat in many restaurants throughout the country. The quality of the food was exceptional. The salmon is the best we’ve seen in years . The fish and chips were reasonably priced and “gourmet level”. Amazing the treasures you find in rural PEI!!

Went there with my wife, my sister and her husband for supper. It was a very pleasant experience. The food was surprisingly good and varied. Service was also quite satisfactory. If there is one con, it's the prices which are relatively high (though in these post Covid days... )

Tried to eat at the restaurant but was turned away. They claim they close at 8pm on Saturday. We should up at 7:35pm and was told they they wouldn’t take any new tables. We instead at a lovely Thai restaurant around the corner.

Had a fantastic salad with a lovely view over the bay. The server was friendly and we enjoyed our lunch there! Although I didn’t dive too deep into the menu, would definitely go back to try more!
