This is everything you want in an oceanside seafood restaurant with outdoor seating and a rustic feel. The PEI mussels and seafood chowder were both incredible and my belly was very full and happy! Absolutely delicious!

This is a lovely place, great staff, wonderful food. The seafood chowder was the best I've ever tried and I had the whiskey crime brûlée which was delicious. Well worth the long walk from Cavendish

Chowder was excellent. The mussels with garlic were also great. The service was excellent. Shared the linguine with my husband. So rich I could never have eaten it all. Wish I had saved room for dessert. Be back tomorrow night.

We ate there twice in two days! They make an excellent Bloody Mary. Seafood chowder was the best I’ve ever had. Deserts are excellent as well. Service and atmosphere is also excellent!

What a great spot! October in PEI many restaurants have closed. We had been told that the Blue Mussel Cafe was a good restaurant in the area. We were so glad of the recommendation. Arriving at 7:10pm and told there was a 40 minute wait....More
