Much to our astonishment this restaurant just made it on to our ten best in the world list. Every dish was exquisite, featuring local produce and local craft beer. And every staff member was perfect - friendly, helpful and efficient. The building and setting are beautiful.

Absolutely the best lobster roll I've ever had! I also had a yummy seafood chowder that was second to none. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was inviting, quaint, and comfortable. There are cottages as well as the lodge so you can stay and soak up the sun, the sea, and the most beautiful sunsets ever seen.

Dinner last night was wonderful. A window seat in the restaurant was fantastic as we watched dusk turn to dark. The chowder was full of flavour and the lamb cooked to perfection. I should not have had the cheesecake but could not help my self. Staff attentive but never pushy. We were recommended to dine here by Michelle at the... More

I selected this place based on the rating, mistake. When I went back to check the reviews I realized they were all for the food. The food was good, no doubt about it, but I was looking for a place to stay. So first the good. The location is beautiful, looking out over the Northumberland Strait. The beach looked great,...

Had lunch here after getting off the PEI ferry. Well worth seeking this place out. An absolutely stunningly beautiful location on the oceanfront. My wife and I shared the two piece fish and chip which was plenty for the two of us. Our friends had seafood chowder, crabcakes and salads and all said that their meals were very good.The service...

We had lunch and dinner at this restaurant and both were excellent. Beautiful water view out large windows. Seafood Chowder, club sandwich, salad for lunch were all excellent. Special treat was to be able to walk a beautiful, long beach (over a mile?) and work off the lunch. Made reservations for dinner and were equally impressed with the restaurant. Halibut... More

Had dinner there once. Reservations are a necessity. Menu was varied (soups, salads, seafood, chops, steaks, burgers, wine, alcohol, etc). Our selection (Salads, Lobster Bisque, steak & swordfish) was delicious. Service was prompt and excellent. Our window table afforded an outstanding view of the Northumberland Strait, since the Lodge is next to and well above the water. We even saw... More

Beautiful dining room and view. Linen table cloth and excellent service accompanied by a great menu means you need dinner reservations or eat I'm the lounge
