We had the Lobster Roll and a drink, they give you kettle chips out of a bag with it and we paid about twenty dollars each, to much for what it was. Also the Lobster Roll was to dry for my liking. Would not go back. Got a Lobster Dinner in Summerside a day or two later and it was... More

I have eaten here twice and both times it was amazing. They take your order and prepare it right away and then take the next persons order. Fast and courteous service. While waiting for our order we encourages other possible patrons to wait and not leave and they thanked us for the suggestion. They loved every bite also. Spotlessly clean... More

The Lobster rolls at Island Favorites are unbelievable!! Personal favorite is "The Greenhorn" flavor.. But sampling them all is probably the way to go!! Great flavors, great location and great people! 10 out of 10! Can't wait to go back.

Lobster landed price only up 90+% not 400%. Profiteering. Yes. For knuckles and claw tips. Your over paying for north shore lobster. Invest in facilities. Lower the price. Have specials. Who...

Allow me to make this very clear, we are for sure the lowest price in Cavendish! When our staff asked you how everything was, your response was that it was delicious. When we explained the mark up in lobster prices you behaved very defensively. You were speaking to my husband who is a lobster fisherman. He explained the rise in... More

I can't get enough lobster, and had lobster rolls several times during my recent visit. The best, by far was at Island Favorites in Cavendish. Most flavorful. the others were bland and also more expensive. I would recommend Island Favorites for an authentic lobster roll.

This was our second year visiting this restaurant. We were just as impressed the second time around. My husband and I got the sampler so we could try all 4 kinds of lobster rolls. My favorite was the Greenhorn and my husband liked the First Mate. We also tried some chowder this time and it was hands down the best... More

Island Favorites is a small restaurant at Cavendish that is well worth taking a minute to visit. Their lobster chowder is incredible and their lobster rolls are wonderful. The little restaurant is clean, the staff is friendly. I'll be back again.

Description
Opening Island Favorites was a dream come true for me, having over six years experience in the food service industry I noticed the most crucial standards have been declining. Quality of product and customer satisfaction is what Island Favorites strives for; I just knew that there had to be a better way. I opened Island Favorites in May, 2012 I am not a chef although I strive for excellence each and every day. The look on my customer's faces says it all even after indulging in just one bite! Join us at Island Favorites where we have a strong desire to make your Island seafood experience a memorable one. PEI's first and only restaurant to specialize in Lobster Rolls. We also offer the finest Lobster Chowder, PEI Loaded Baked Potatoes, Panini's, and a healthy variety of children's items. Hungry and heading to the beach? Let us provide you with a Family Beach Pack. Island Favorites takes pride in offering the freshest ingredients in a non- deep frying environment. Our mission is to raise the standards of service by always putting the customer first. Not one customer will leave Island Favorites without feeling 100% satisfied.
