Welcome to the
North Lake Boathouse Harbour Eatery
Boathouse Eatery host Valerie Flannery brings her own seafood and other culinary ideas, combined with the memorable recipes of her mother and family – and the traditions of earlier-generation North Lake cookhouses – to the local people of North Lake and area and guests from around the world. Valerie has become known for serving up ‘tradition on a plate’.
Fresh Sea Air!
With its nautical-themed front deck and interior restaurant and kitchen, the Eatery is housed within the original working boathouse built by North Lake fisher Ken Fraser, recognized by the International Game Fish Association as holder of the world record for the largest bluefin tuna ever caught at 1,486 pounds, a record that still stands after more than 40 years.
Situated less than 10 metres from the edge of North Lake Harbour Beach, the Boathouse is also central to the live ‘theatre’ of one of the largest working harbours on P.E.I. – a constant curiosity of fishing captains and their crews, colourfully painted boats with names you’ll never forget, and the ever-present comings and goings of the ocean tide.
Relax inside or enjoy the fresh sea air from the Eatery’s outdoor deck!

North Lake Harbour and North Lake Creek Watershed
In addition to being nicknamed the ‘Bluefin Tuna Capital of the World’ and home to more than 90 lobster fishers, North Lake Harbour is among Prince Edward Island’s most productive areas for snow crab, herring, mackerel, and halibut. The harbour is a bustling place, with vessels embarking and returning from the beautiful Gulf of St. Lawrence…a fascinating place to simply watch all the activity. The North Lake Creek watershed, meanwhile, originates in the west at “Fountain Head”, a renowned spring close to Greenvale. Alder Brook, a key tributary, flows north and meets the main branch of the river east of the East Baltic Road. North Lake Creek eventually flows into North Lake itself before draining into the Gulf of St. Lawrence at North Lake Harbour.
