It's Patio Season

Longer days and warmer temperatures equals patio season on Prince Edward Island. With a view of the water meeting the sky, there really is no better place to be on a sunny day. If you are lucky enough to catch a sunset and some east coast tunes, you’ll recall this meal for a long, long time.

Add these locales to your PEI summer vacation bucket list.

The The Pier Patio & Grill is located in Stanley Bridge on the north shore with a patio overlooking the sand dunes of the Prince Edward Island National Park. Enjoy lunch or dinner made with some of PEI’s finest ingredients. Docking at the on-site marina is available.

Lone Oak Brewpub is one of PEI’s newest full-service restaurants with a 3,000 sq./ft patio overlooking the North River on the outskirts of Charlottetown. Enjoy a full menu, signature craft beer, regular evening entertainment and custom-made fire pits for cooler nights.

Point Prim Chowder House – This salt-kissed clapboard restaurant should be called a triple threat given its high-ranking reviews for food and service, proximity to PEI’s oldest lighthouse and spectacular panoramic views of the Northumberland Strait. When you dine on the patio, you are just steps to the sea.

Sunset Room – Here, mother nature provides a beautiful backdrop while you enjoy menu items such as lobster stuffed sole or a smokey sunset burger with happy hour specials…need we say more. 

FiN Food Food is a casual take-out serving mouthwatering seafood classics with a deck overlooking the white sand dunes that shelter Tracadie Harbour.  

Located right on the wharf in Victoria-by-the-Sea, Casa Mia by the Sea is an elegant restaurant and patio offering breakfast until afternoon, lunch and dinner.
