First, I should caveat this review by saying that our entire family is really into ice hockey. My daughter took this one step farther by actually looking up which players came from PEI (Brad Richards) our former Ranger is one. We really liked the lobster rolls here...there was a neat variety and it's clear that the owners really put time... More

This was full of lobster; mostly claw pieces. It was very good. There was supposed to be haddock and scallops in it too but there was 1/2 of one scallop and maybe the haddock just fell apart into the chowder as I didn't notice any pieces. Over all it was very good...maybe a bigger bowl or lower the price a... More

A little hidden treasure. Their lobster rolls are the best that I have ever had and the flavour of the seafood chowder was delicious! Will definitely be going back before the summer is over :)

Good lobster roll but you don't get much for your 15 dollars. All you get with your roll is a small plastic cup of slaw or potato chips. Best on PEI? Don't think so. You might do a double take when the roll shows up.

My favourite lobster roll used to be from Richard's Fresh Seafood in Stanhope (and it's still pretty good) but Island Favorites has everyone beat. It's tasty, big enough, fresh and just, well, great! And the woman who served me gave me a half cup of lobster chowder just to try. Great move on her part because the next night when... More

We ate here multiple times during our stay in PEI. The lobster rolls and chowder are amazing! Everything was fresh and so delicious. They also did a fantastic job of preparing gluten free options for us. Even the cupcakes are delicious. The staff are very friendly -it feels like you are having lunch at a friend's place. I highly recommend... More

We had an amazing meal tonight at Island Favorites. We had lobster rolls and the most delicious chowder. The lobster rolls were so full, toasted bun and the perfect amount of dill. The chowder was so full of delicatible seafood. Rich and creamy. Will certainly recommend to our family and friends.

The place claims to be the best lobster roll in PEI and it's indeed awesome! The lobsters are very fresh, and even the bread is toasted to be hot and crispy. The owner is very friendly too. When we were about to leave, the lobster chowder was just ready and we got free samples!

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.
