New Glasgow Lobster Suppers

$$$$ Fodor's choice

Established in 1958, New Glasgow Lobster Suppers brings fresh lobster direct from a pound on the premises to your plate. Scallops, roast beef, salmon, chicken, haddock, ham, and even a vegetarian dish are other choices if you've already had your fill of crustaceans, or you can choose to have just an appetizer and dessert. All come with fresh rolls, steamed mussels, seafood chowder, salads, house-made desserts, and beverages. Bar service is available, as is a separate children's menu. The huge, bustling dining area can seat up to 500 guests, and it often fills up. Because turnover is fast, there isn't usually a long wait.

Prince Edward Island Preserve Company


One of the best spots on the Island to stop for a bite, the café at this preserve company has a soaring ceiling and two walls of windows looking over the Clyde River. Everything served is noted for freshness—even the ice cream is house-made. Particularly praiseworthy items include the savory potato pie with maple-bacon cream, available at lunch and dinner; other entrées include pan-seared haddock with lobster velouté and barbecue-style ribs, which you could follow with a not-too-sweet raspberry cream cheese pie.

Avonlea Village may be all about Anne of Green Gables, but the branch of Samuel’s Coffee House in this historic setting is all about good coffee and house-made treats such as muffins, scones, soups, salads and a delectable raspberry cream cheese pie. It’s in a nice old clapboard building with a few tables out on the sidewalk. It is only open when Avonlea Village itself is open.
