Richard's is located in Covehead Harbor just down the highway from the great sand dunes and beaches of the PEI National Park. Richard's is on the wharf just meters from where the local fishermen tie up their lobster boats, so the seafood is fresh, fresh,...More

This is a very casual roadside café but don't let that fool you. Their fish & chips and lobster rolls were awesome and well worth the wait. You can dine there if the weather is good or get take out. You just know it's going...More

The best Lobster rolls I have ever had. Husband had lobster burger (I ordered one for snack later--so good!). Not fancy, long lines at times. A chunk dropped out of my bun while I was taking a bite, I looked down and noticed an entire...More

I am very sorry that you had a poor experience with us. I, like many other owner/operators across the Island, make it a point to offer up only our best each and every time. That being said, sometimes we fall a little short, as was...More

Decided to visit the Island after the shift from summer vacation time to September and back to school. This is a followup to a previous review and I am happy to report that the food is still good and possibly even better. Perhaps it was...More

I visited here twice this week. The first time I was with friends and ordered the lobster burger. This is hot lobster with butter which melted in my mouth. The bun was incredible as well. The fries were among the best I've had and I...More
