Our Story

Where memories are made while wearing a bib!

Rooted in traditions and values that never go out of style – excellence, teamwork, genuine hospitality, and authenticity – we are proud of our 65-year history as a family-owned and operated restaurant.

From the first day, we opened our doors on June 24, 1958, we’ve been bringing families and friends together around the dinner table.

It’s here, while you’re cracking lobster claws, laughing at dad in a bib, and marvelling at our meringue pie, that you’ll be reminded of what really matters.

These are the moments that will live on in your collective treasure trove of family memories for years to come.

And we are honoured to be a part of your PEI vacation experience.

Community, The Heart of It All

Here at New Glasgow Lobster Suppers, we cherish the ties that bind us together – as families, friends, and community members.

In fact, our very first lobster supper event in 1958 was a fundraiser in support of the New Glasgow Junior Farmers Organization. Comprised of young members of the community between 21 and 31, the organization focused on farming practices, entrepreneurship, and contributing to community life.

While much has changed since the 1950s, community still remains at the heart of everything that makes New Glasgow and, indeed, Prince Edward Island, such a special place.

We love showcasing our little piece of paradise on PEI’s North Shore and encourage you to spend the afternoon exploring New Glasgow before you settle in for your lobster supper with us.

We Always Choose Local First

Here on Canada’s Food Island, buying local isn’t some new trend, it’s simply a way of life. We’ve been choosing local since 1958 because it just makes sense.

The best meals begin with the freshest ingredients. And you can’t get any fresher than vegetables grown in our red soils, shellfish harvested from our waters, and dairy from cows that graze our rolling green pastures.

It also helps that we have our own lobster pound on site, holding upwards of 20,000 lbs where a continuous flow of frigid salt water ensures the best quality PEI lobster!

We also choose local first, because it means we’re supporting our neighbours and our friends. We remain ever-grateful for the passion, skill, and dedication of our Island farmers, fishers, and food producers. And the best way we know how to say thank-you to them is by always choosing local. It’s truly a win-win-win for our customers, our cooks, and our food suppliers.
