Good Cheap PEI Eats in Charlottetown and East

missmasala | Aug 10, 2007 08:18 AM


We will be doing a bike trip in a couple of weeks in Eastern PEI, mainly on the confederation trail. I'm looking for some good, cheap, family-friendly (we will have our kids, 5 and 8, with us) places to eat in the area. Not sure of our exact route, but if anyone has suggestions for Charlottetown, Mount Stewart, St. Peter's, Souris, Cardigan, Georgetown, or Montague, it would be much appreciated.

Also, if anyone knows of any hidden dining gems along the confederation trail itself, I would love to know about those.

We're looking to go fish/seafood heavy but the places also need to have at least fries or something for the kid (isn't there one in every family?) who doesn't eat fish.

Am already planning to hit the new glasgow lobster supper and also read here about a good fish and chips place in St. Peter's (is it ricks?)

I heard the corner store in Charlottetown is good. Can we bring our kids there?

Again, not looking for upscale dining, just good, reasonably priced food.

Also, we love oysters but are probably not going to make it to western PEI, where it seems most of the oysters come from. Is there a good place in Charlottetown or East for oysters? Also, we will be driving across the confederation bridge. Is there a good place not too far from the bridge to sample some oysters?
