Terrible service. Table for four. One person got her food and was half way through before second got hers. Very pricy. Would not come back. Fourth person didn't get hers until after the first was done.

The service here was wonderful and the staff were great however, it is quite pricey and we were not happy with the food. The fries were quite good however the fish was not. It didn’t taste fresh and actually had an odd taste to it....There were 3 of us and none of us were able to finish the fish. Very disappointing for the price that was paid for 3 one piece fish and chips.More

Have to agree with the previous review that the food is expensive here. This is not a sit, table service restaurant. Mind you, the food is good. And they give you way to much to eat. That’s a pet peeve of mine. They wouldn’t allow...the light appetite adult to order from the kids meal and there was no option for a one piece fish & fries, for example. The meals come with more fries than any one person could possibly eat. Set up is a little odd. You have to go to one building to order and then another to pick up. They gave us a number to put on our table and I thought we were getting table service at least, but no, you had to go to the pick up window. They are licensed and have a good selection of beer & cider. Location is handy if you’re in the St. Peter’s Bay area, just around the corner from the artisan shops. I’ve never quite figured out how to eat fish & chips out of a box so I had to take it out and eat it off the plastic tray it came on.More

Good but ridiculously expensive! One individual ‘meal box’ of 2 average pieces of fish and somewhat greasy fries with 2 very small sides in little plastic cups was over $40 alone including tax. Vastly Overpriced!

Our favourite meal on the island!! The atmosphere…the music…and the food!!! It doesn’t get any fresher or better than this. We had cod, mussels, cod cakes, and some excellent local beer…

Last night, we were in St. Peter's and were looking for seafood but not deep fried. Of course one can have, what I am sure are great Fish & Chips at Rick's. We saw some interesting items on the menu and ordered a lobster roll...and a Ahi tuna burger. Both were delicious, served with a home made slaw and aioli mayonnaise. The two pieces of tuna were cut relatively thin, seared on one side only, still deep red and NOT overcooked (as fish and seafood should be). If you don't like raw fish that would not be for you, but there are many other choices. I overheard a client popping into the kitchen to congratulate the chef on the best scallops he ever had. In brief, a very modest exterior and beer garden, but a classy kitchen.More

We had fish and chips, a lobster roll and a burger. My son thought the fish was excellent. The verdict on the burger was middling. The lobster roll was on a toasted buttered bun,overflowing with huge chunks of lobster, not much lettuce. Oddly, there was...mustard drizzled over the top and a little bit of relish. Fries were fine, slaw was quite good. Outdoor seating area was charming and can accommodate dogs. There was an order mix up but it was corrected very quickly and the staff were all quite nice.More

We enjoyed a few lunches at Rick's Fish & Chips during our vacation on PEI, which was only 10 min away from the hotel we stayed in (the lovely 45 Steps Inn right on the north-shore of PEI). Great food selection (incl. lovely salads), which...tasted really well (I loved the cod!). Very friendly staff!More

We ordered two lobster rolls to go. One with fries, one with salad. Paid $4 more for the one with salad. Arrived back at our hotel - no fries with one order. Lobster was chewy - overcooked. Lobster was artfully arranged on top of a...huge bun - which you couldn't fold into a "roll" or sandwich as the bun was too huge. we had lobster rolls in previous years from this place - they have gone downhill in terms of quantity and quality. We paid $60 for this meal. Money better spent elsewhere. Problem is there's not much in terms of restaurants in this area, which I suspect is a reason this place is busy.More

Fish & chips are the best on the Island. As good or better than what I tasted in UK. Worth the 45 minute trip from Charlottetown. Crisp and crunchy outside and fresh, flaky and tender inside. Definitely not greasy. Large portions of everything. So stuffed...afterwards. Bought the 2 piece fish & chips and shared it with my adult daughter. Try it with the malt vinegar. Delicious. Had the Greek salad too. Perfection itself. Friend had a burger and fries and stated that it was definitely home made, not a pre-frozen pattie and was delicious. Varied menu for all tastes. Staff were solicitous & served us with smiles, small talk and knowledgeable about menu items. Best to be there at 12 NOON on the dot as restaurant fills up fast at meal time. Interior and deck seating available.More

Ordered the baked haddock and chips. A puny piece of fish served atop a piece of lettuce was served. Doubtful it would even be appropriate for a toddlers appetite. Was told the fish is "pre-measured" to approx 4 ounce pieces. My piece seemed smaller than...that and I left hungry. I felt quite ripped off for the price they charge! Much better value at other fish and chip places, for example Richards!More

Although highly recommended to me, I can not recommend this restaurant, at least not for the fish and chips. This is quite ironic given the restaurant’s name! The presentation of the meal was good but the amount of fish inside of the coating was very...small. I have had a number of fish and chip meals on PEI and this one was by far the most disappointing. On the plus side, they do serve Pepsi!More

As the name implies, they mostly have fried items. However, they do have lots of non-fried menu options as well. Everything I had was good. My favorite was the fried haddock. The mussels were also great.
