“We went for the mussels and Oh Boy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

Based on reviews from T/A we journeyed up to Richard's to have their steamed mussels advertised at $8.00 for 1 1/2 pounds. For us Midwesterners we couldn't touch that many mussels for $8.00. We each had an order and although there was a bit of a wait it was well worth it. Delicious! If you are looking for upscale or fancy, this is not the place. But if you want fresh seafood at a great price, then this is the place. It's inside the National Park and if you tell the gate person you're headed to the restaurant there is no charge.

“The Best Fish & Chips in PEI”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

After spending three weeks in the maritimes and having some great fish and chips this was a notch above. The Fries are homefries. The fish is dipped in Panko breadcrumbs for a delicious coating. The tartar sauce and coleslaw are made in house and extraordinary. Servings are large. Have I used enough superlatives? There is a small seating area next to the take out with a second story giving you an excellent view of the bay and wharf.

“great value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Richard's was scaling back since it was the end of the season. They were only doing takeout with tables outside where you could sit to eat. The food was fantastic. My lobster roll was overflowing with whole claws. The salad was fresh even though it came in a prepackaged container. The fish was some of the best we've had - very, very moist. There was no service since it was just takeout.

“My biggest regret....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

.... is certainly notstopping here for a takeaway tonight! No, my biggest regret was only getting around to stopping here mere days before they close for the season. In my time on PEI, I have tried fish and chips at many different places, many places that all claim to have 'the best fish and chips'. Well, all those other places shoudl be fined for false advertising. The fish and chips I had here tonight is by far the BEST fish and chips I have EVER had. And I speak from a lot of experience, and am not even typically a fish lover! The portions are huge (easily could share between two people), the breading is light and crispy, the fries handcut, the coleslaw such an interesting medley of fresh flavours, and the tartar sauce unlike any I have ever tasted - they experiment with non-typical ingredients and it works! The location is beautiful, and when you order, you are given a buzzer that will vibrate, which they told me has a range of up to 1km! So, you can stroll the shoreline and walk to the beautiful Covehead lighthouse and return back for hot fresh food when your pocket vibrates. I cannot recommend this place enough. Don't miss it. And if you are looking for the best fish and chips you have ever had, don't even bother going anywhere else!

“Amazing food!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

Richard's is a great place to stop for seafood!! My favorite place to be on the island is the Stanhope area, and Richard's is right at the Covehead Wharf within the national park. Amazingly fresh seafood, and they don't skimp on the portions. Deliciously cooked and served with fresh made coleslaw and delicious dipping sauce. And surprisingly affordable prices. A must for anyone visiting that area of PEI!! It's also along the most beautiful stretch of beach on the island, you can't go wrong!!
