This is a great stop when you're in Charlottetown! Yummy, affordable eats. We shared the lobster poutine and it was very good - very rich and filling but it is salty so be forewarned (we thought this is to be expected with fries). Owner is...More

The lobster roll was excellent! And the Handcut PEI fries are the best! All for $12 taxes included. Caron, the Queen of Fries, has a fabulous personality, always has a big smile and a free hug! It's a must visit.
