I didn't know Lobster Suppers existed until my first visit to the island back in 2016. New Glasgow Lobster Suppers opened its doors in 1958, and has since become a popular tourist destination in New Glasgow, PEI. Upon arrival, you are asked to decide your entree & purchase your meal order before being seated. Gratuities are not included in the price of your meal, so if you're pleased with the meal and service, tip your server (in cash) before leaving. 

We started off the meal with a basket of homemade rolls and bread. The bread was to my liking - super fluffy. The salad on the other hand has been a hit/miss. 


All meals are served to you at your table and include unlimited appetizers, freshly steamed Cultivated Island Blue Mussels, non-alcoholic beverages and desserts. Appetizers available are salad sampler plate, coleslaw, PEI potato salad, garden salad, seafood chowder and tomato basil soup. 



Included in the meal is a bucket of Steamed Island Blue Mussels, which is completely refillable. Most restaurants charge $12+ for a single bucket of mussels, so this was a great deal to me. We finished 2 buckets. 


We both opted for the lobster entree, I got 1 pound ($36.95) and J got 1.5 pounds ($43.95). The lobster wasn't anything special, as it was just steamed with a side of melted butter. I appreciated the lobster being pre-cracked, so it made eating it much easier. 



We had our first meal here in 2016.


Ended the night off with the Coconut Cream Pie and a cup of coffee. 


J got the Pumpkin Pie (seasonal) with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.


Given the high prices of eating out in Charlottetown, I'd say that the price paid here (per person) was pretty good in value. Some people would probably group this place as a "tourist trap", which I can understand why as it's now on most lists of top things to do in PEI. However, it's a good deal for what you get.
