Seafood shacks and restaurants line the shores of Prince Edward Island, offering East Coasters and visitors a chance to crack and pick at the freshest lobster in the country. This delicious tradition honours more than 1,200 licensed lobster fishermen, who work long hours out of a labour of love and call this Island their home.
To celebrate the Island’s strong fishing industry, grab a bib and head to one of the Island’s best lobster suppers. Make sure to go hungry, there’s more than fresh lobster on the menu (think fresh mussels or the local favourite: strawberry shortcake!)
New Glasgow Lobster Suppers
Head to this third-generation family-owned restaurant in New Glasgow, located on the Green Gables Shore along Route 258. It’s been serving lobster the Island way fresh from their own premises since 1958. Find out more here.
Lobster on the Wharf
