Excellent seafood in a quaint location, downtown and very near the water front. Within walking distance of the cruise ship docking facility and a lot of other tourist spots.

My wife and I were in Charlottetown before and again after biking PEI tip to tip. We ended up going to the Water Prince on both occasions!

I have eaten at Water Prince on numerous occasions. Every visit ends with complete satisfaction after a deliciously prepared meal. The seafood is fresh, the fries are hand cut, the potato salad is delicious and the desserts are all homemade.i suggest a reservation, as the restaurant is extremely busy at dinner time.

We went to get some of PEI's famous lobster... we were both rather disappointed, as the 1.5 pound lobster was a little over cooked, not a juicy succulent lobster that we were expecting. Maybe the chef was having a bad day. Although you get to pick out the live lobster in their tank.

I live here and rave about Shane's (the owner) attention to getting the lobster just right! Kelly and Regis ate here when they were on PEI doing a show. That's a... More

We had mussels, crab legs and fish and chips. We enjoyed all of the food but the fish and chips were honestly the best I have ever had.
