Hello again, I am really looking forward to my trip in September. Can you tell me what restaurants served the best oysters in Charlottetown? I am also looking for great local seafood near Summerside and Bloomfield. What would you suggest? Thanking you in advance, Janet

Hi Janet,

You will find the best oysters at nearly any restaurant on PEI! With I think, 30 varietals of the Malpeque Oyster they all have unique flavour depending on the environment they are grown in! At the PEI Shellfish Festival on September 13-16, they have 27 different oysters available for tasting! That's where you can gain a deeper appreciation for the subtlety of the flavours of each! This takes place at the event grounds in Charlottetown! 
 
As far as restaurants in Charlottetown- Sims Corner Steakhouse and Oyster Bar, Claddagh Oyster Bar or Carr’s in Stanley Bridge- if you are in Stanley Bridge there is also Gallant’s Seafood where you can buy and shuck your own or steam open on a barbecue! 
 
Closer to Summerside and Bloomfield- Open Eats in Summerside and Catch Kitchen and Bar in West Point!
 
Hope this helps!  Happy Slurping!
Chef Jeff
