PEI Lobster Suppers - where to go?
First off - these boards are great. Thanks to all the regular and not-so-regular contributors - your insight has been very helpful so far in planning the upcoming (unfortunately) few days my wife and I will have in PEI. We arrive this coming saturday and leave tuesday morning.
Secondly, I am looking for a few recommendatons on where to go for a lobster supper. So far I think I have narrowed it to New Glagsow, Cardigans or Water Prince.
Number one priority of course is the food. Location is not a huge issue - but would prefer something on the eastern half of the island. Would love a place that has all you can eat mussels - but this is not a requirement. Friendly (read: unpretentious) service would be a bonus.
Any other suggestions on some good 'home cooking' spots would be much appreciated.
When we were in PEI last year...went to New Glasgow and it was fine. Can't remember if they serve unlimited mussels but they do have a website which may help. Perfectly acceptable. What I do remember most however is that after forgetting my baby's bottle there, upon returning not only had they kept it - and knew who I was, but it was also sparkling clean.
For home cooking, loved Brehauts in Murray River (Eastern side of the island, south of Montague). Best darn chowder I have ever had. Quaint location beside a church and all knotty pine inside. Lobster sandwich my SO had there was absolutely crammed with big chunks / whole pieces. Menu cost was also relatively cheap (IIRC 3 beers, 2 chowders, 2 sandwiches was ~$35 with tip) Would definitely return. I'm sure there would be other posts on the boards about this spot.
