One of the nicest things about spending time on the east coast was being able to get our fill of fresh local seafood. We are big fans of fresh fish in our family, and we cooked up some great meals featuring the local catch of the day. I was absolutely amazed at how there was no fish smell at all in any of the places where we went to buy fish – that’s how you know the fish is really fresh.
We couldn’t leave the island without checking out the local fish and chip places. One of the best meals we had was at Sharky’s in Summerside. The portions were generous, and the fish and chips were crispy and delicious. Apparently they make the batter fresh for each individual batch. With clam chowder to start and cold beer on the side, it was a great meal on a hot summer day.
Try the sweet potato fries on the side for a little twist. And look for Jake, our charming server. Tell him Lifeovereasy says hi.

And if you’re in the Charlottetown area, check out the fish and chips at Brits. We tried The Works platter, which let us sample four kinds – cod, haddock, sole, and halibut, with onion rings and fries on the side. It was delicious, but that was enough fried food to last us a long time! Brits offers a cute pub atmosphere, and is located in a charming part of town – perfect for a walk afterwards to work off some of those tasty calories!
