New Glasgow Lobster Suppers

New Glasgow Lobster Suppers (604 route 258, New Glasgow, Prince Edward Island)
(902) 964-2870

Heard lots about the East coast lobster dinners where you can eat lobster and all-you-can-eat mussels/chowder/dessert.

The mussels come in a bucket. They were a bit on the dried up side, but other than that, they were okay.

The salads
Coleslaw, green, and potato. With bread roll.

First whole lobster of the trip! It came pre-cracked, so it was like lobster for beginners. Meat was tasty, fresh, and surprisingly easy to get out of the shell. If you eat the green stuff inside, the make it so that it tastes pretty creamy. Also, you can taste the ocean on it.

Coconut cream pie and lemon meringue pie.

Not pictured: seafood chowder. The salad plate was okay, and the chowder was a bit standard, but I would later have much, much, much more interesting chowder later in the trip. The bread was surprisingly good, and it was, in fact, the only food item that Dave liked. I wasn't amazed with the food, but it was a good experience to have, and a good benchmark for the seafood to come. I quite enjoyed my lobster and pie. I think I remember Josie saying she liked the pie crust.

Some notes: 
You pay and pick your entrée of choice right at the front of the restaurant before you are seated (even if you have reservations). 
They ran out of chocolate cake. :( 
Service is nice enough, but a little understaffed.

Would I return? Possibly... but I had a much better experience at Baddeck Lobster Suppers... more on that later...
