Despite its unassuming appearance, the Water Prince Corner Shop is the best place to go for incredible lobster in Charlottetown. The restaurant specializes in serving up the freshest seafood caught daily by local fishermen. Diners can choose to sit outside on the patio and gaze out over the water or dine inside surrounded by the extremely rare blue lobsters decorating the eatery’s walls. The menu is primarily seafood based with plenty of options to choose from including seafood chowder, mussels, scallop burgers and pan-fried sole, as well as the delicious signature boiled Atlantic lobster. For those wishing to veer away from seafood, there is also a selection of non-fish options on the menu such as chicken fingers and beef burgers with crispy French fries.
