Even in August dinner on the deck later in the evening could be cool, but seating inside is limited, and with clear weather our preference was to be outside. As with everywhere in PEI, the service was friendly. I had a classic lobster dinner, which...More

My husband and I ate here. It was good. Price didn’t match value. A person should not have to season a 25$ plate. Service was pleasant but unfortunately our server never asked us if we enjoyed our meal.

I don't think Restaurant could handle it unless otherwise closed. Maybe on the outdoor porch but you should contact them.

Oysters on the half shell are a gluten free option, however, items with gluten are available so you should contact the restaurant to check on their recommendations as it is not a gluten free environment.
