We stumbled on the Blue Mussel by accident but it was a lucky stumble indeed. We ate at fancier places during our holiday but the Blue Mussel was definitely our best meal. We shared the lobster roll, chowder, and mussels. Each was spectacular! The service...More

We found this gem while visiting the nearby lighthouse. It exceeded our expectations in every way. The lobster rolls were to die for, as was the lobster dip, and homemade blueberry pie. Don’t miss this quaint restaurant on PEI!

So glad we made it just days before they closed. We had the lobster dinner, seafood bubbly, pecan pie and pumpkin ice cream cake. All were lovely! The staff was so friendly and welcoming as well. Make this a must do!

I’m a snob when it comes to mussels, and I never think they do them as well as the French, so hooray for this kitchen for proving me wrong. My fellow diner had an excellent, seafood-filled gratin. Good salad. All locally sourced. Great atmosphere, great...More

Hi, Bootsyjean, sorry about your experience, as you can tell by the responses below, this is not a typical experience. It must have been an off night. Hope you'll give us another try sometime.
