“A north shore classic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

You can't visit PEI National Park's Brackley-Dalvay segment without stopping in to Richard's for some delicious take-out. They have a huge selection of fresh seafood, and plenty of food for those of us who don't like fish. Reasonable prices for delicious Island food.

“Great fish and views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We went here on the recommendation of a friend from the island. It was amazing! The fish and chips were delicious and the portions were so big we could barely finish. The views of the harbour from the upper deck were a great way to enjoy our dinner.

“about as good as it gets on PEI”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We ate our way through northern PEI in late August and early September, 2012. Other places were expensive and their seafood dull - we were disappointed in PEI restaurants. Richards was the exception - rustic, simple, and authentic. Their seafood was the best we had on the island, and comparatively speaking, less expensive. It is the only restaurant that we ate at that I would recommend and that I would return to.

“Talk about fresh fish!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Oh if you like fish and chips...wow....check out Richards deep fried haddock with handcut pei fries. The only regret is that I ordered one piece of fish! Also to note....they close occasionally for 30 minutes. We had to wait about 15 minutes to order ( and we were doubting our even staying) But OH! 'tis worth the wait!

“What happened? Richard's is AWESOME. A few years ago it was just average.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Haven't been here in a couple of years as the food was generally underwhelming, but got caught at the beach, and the children were starving so I glumly headed back. WOW. The fish sandwiches we got were awesome. Great value for the money. Thanks for making your place a must stop destination now!
