Point Prim is a beautiful area with a very nice looking lighthouse, but, Point Prim Chowder House's chowder, I dare say, was one of the highlights of our trip to PEI. I would go back there again and again just for that chowder! It's creamy,...More

What a fantastic location. We couldn’t resist having some chowder as we had heard that it was good. The creamy on and and the clam and ham one. It was ok but no where near the best we have had so far. Small portion and...More
