Excellent seafood, this is a local restaurant and don’t just drive by because it looks plain. The service was amazing and the chowder is to die for. This is were the locals go to eat a great meal. True east coast dining.

Ok meal, had lobster roll as well as a burger. Not the best of either on the island but perfectly adequate. Staff were super friendly and helpful . Interesting atmosphere in the sit down area.

What a simple, yet very nice restaurant to start off my PEI visit. Whatever you order, have a Beach Chair Lager with it. (the guy with me had the Salmon Dinner and loved it)

I was in Charlottetown on a cruise ship and made a return visit to WPCS & LP. Even in +/- off-season they have a line-up for their small and eclectic restaurant. I ordered the Island Mussels. Local mussels steamed with white wine, celery and carrots....More

Oh my! This totally unassuming little locals' place serves the BEST seafood chowder I have ever eaten. Yes, we found it and tried it because it was identified as THE place for lunch by a fellow cruiser. The seating is limited. There is outdoor seating....More

We were surprised that a worker in a competing restaurant steered us to the Water Prince Shop. We had a short wait but it was so worth it. There must have been 3-4 dozen mussels for $12.75 Canadian. Excellent quality and expertly prepared. The fish...More
