Lobster Feasts, North Shore of PEI

One of the highlights of visiting PEI is to have a delicious meal of Lobster. There are plenty different options in your quest to satisfy your taste buds.
You can visit a lobster pound and buy live lobsters and take them back to your accommodations and cook them yourself. This is not for the faint of heart as many have trouble plunging them into boiling water and not feeling just a bit sorry for them.

You can decide to purchase them cooked from a lobster pound and not have to worry about the actual cooking part and the good thing is some places have perfected the cooking process so they taste superb with just the right amount of salt and full of juice. The great part about buying this way is you can head to the local wharf or picnic area and have an outdoor dinner for a fraction of the price of the restaurant with no lines or busyness.

If eating outside is a bit to rugged for the occasion then consider a Lobster Supper. There are a few places on the central North Shore area.

Probably the most well known is the Fishermans Wharf Lobster Suppers in North Rustico. Its claim to fame is its unlimited salad and chowder bar which includes dessert. A great place to go if you are feeling extra hungry. I have not ate there in many years but we have got rolls and potato salad to go almost everytime we have been to PEI and it has been great. Our guest that have gone to the Fishermans Wharf to eat have had good things to say about it.

The Fishermans Wharf has about 50 reviews on Trip Advisor with a 3.5 out of 5 rating. Of these reviews,70% would recommend this place.

New Glasgow Lobster Suppers is another great place to try. Located in New Glasgow, a bit of an older establishment but in a great location as it overlooks the New Glasgow River. We also hear great reviews from our guests at Seawinds. Some people like the fact that they are served their complete meal and do not have to be running to the salad and soup bar. They serve unlimited salad, mussels, chowder and dessert with your meal.

The New Glasgow Lobster Suppers has about 44 reviews on Trip Advisor with a 4 out of 5 rating. Of these reviews 87% would recommend this place. This place rates highest of the 3 places mentioned in this post.

St. Anne's Lobster Suppers serves lobster dinners in a church basement. Located in Hope River, this place provides a different experience then the other 2 places previously mentioned. Many like St. Anne's for it uniqueness, while others seem disappointed that its in a basement type atmosphere. However I hear the food is great.

St. Anne's Lobster Suppers has about 5 reviews on Trip Advisor with a 3.5 out of 5 rating. Of these reviews 60% would recommend.

Hope you find this helpful when cruising for lobster on the North Shore of PEI!
