Prince Edward Island loves lobster. It’s how we roll.

It’s impossible to think of Prince Edward Island without thinking of lobster! From tip to tip, summer has only truly begun once you’ve had your first lobster roll of the season. We’ve compiled a list of some of the most delicious of the “on-the-go” delicacies. Challenge yourself to try them all this summer.

Point Prim Chowder House

Located next to the oldest lighthouse on PEI, this rustic, cozy spot overlooking the Atlantic is spectacular. Here, you have two lobster roll options to choose from. Alternatively, order both to share, or not.

The Lobster Shack

The Lobster Shack in Souris is all about a traditional approach to the lobster roll. Enjoy a healthy serving of lobster meat with only a small amount of mayo served on a grilled and buttered hot dog bun. It’s so fresh, you can taste the ocean.

John Brown

A fan favourite, John Brown is located on Victoria Row in Charlottetown. Grab a table outdoors to enjoy the sun and a local beverage while listening to some tunes on stage. Devour their delicious lobster roll with a side of crispy fries, salad or both.

Black Hat Take Out

If you’re near Skinner's Pond in the western part of the province, visit the Stompin’ Tom Centre. Here, you’ll enjoy the memorabilia and music of the man in the black hat. This on-site restaurant is brimming with PEI specialties, including the Clawgeroo Lobster Roll.

Lobster Barn Pub & Eatery

Winner of the inaugural PEI Lobster Love competition, the Classic Sweet and Salty is described as 5.5 oz of PEI Lobster mixed with homemade mayo and served on a toasted roll with crunchy romaine lettuce. This classic was well-loved long before it was officially crowned in 2020.
