While the lobster rolls were good i was surprised of how small they were for the cost. It is not a place to go on a budget.

Not the best. Still too high priced. Not cheapest in cavendish. At these prices no fine linen or china. Second visit confirmed the chef and husband highest paid fisherman in north coast. Filling too dry. Not enough chunks of lobster more minced. Would be second rate in contest. Chowder not bad. Recognizable fillings. Nott watered down. All portions too small.... More

Small unassuming venue .. who would guess the food would be that good? It's not cheap, but it's good. Great staff, too.

We went to Island Favorites because of all the reviews on Trip Advisor and we we not disappointed in the great quality and taste of the lobster roll and chowder. We understand prices vary and that's the price you pay if you want Lobster. Would definitely come again to eat.

We came here because a lot of people on Trip Advisor recommended it. It was good. We got lobster rolls and lemonade. The lobster roll was really good. They gave us a decent amount of meat from the entire lobster, including claws and tail. It wasn't the best lobster roll I've ever had in my entire life, but it was... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us! I wanted to write and tell you that our Lemonade is homemade, I make it myself. The ingredients for homemade lemonade are simply water, sugar and squeezed lemons. (That is all.) The reason there is very little pulp in our lemonade is because the juicer we use strains out...

I travel to Cavendish every summer and always have to stop here to get some lobster rolls. All of their flavours are delicious.

I spent quite a few days at Old Home Week in PEI working and needed to eat out most days. Island Favorites was mine and my daughter's "favorite" food vendor there. The staff was friendly and the lobster rolls were delicious. I tried the lobster chowder for the first time too . Loved it!!

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

First let me apologize for your not so nice experience with us. I wish you voiced your concerns with us during your visit. This is the only way we can turn your negative into a positive. A positive experience for all of our customers is certainly what we strive for. If you felt that canned meat was a better option... More

I have to agree with the review of Ron R below. For the high price, the quality and quantity of the food should both be better. We had better servings of chowder and lobster in Halifax, NS and St Andrews, NB for about the same price.

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.
