Richard's Fish and Chips is a Must! The Portions are large, the fries are hot, and the batter on the fish is to die for. For a busy little place on the shore, the service is excellent, with just enough time waiting for your food to enjoy the scenery, and have a nice conversation. If anything, more seating would be...

Good place to eat. We had a crab and a lobster roll. They didn't have their "proper" bread because their delivery had not arrived yet but it was still delicious. To be honest we got there about 15 minutes before they opened and there were already about 8 people in line so we knew we had made a good choice... More

My wife had the fish and chips while I had the scallops. We loved the flaky breading. The fries were great too. (Those Islanders really know how to cook some fries.) The sun-dried tomato and dill tarter sauce was very unique and wonderful as well. You get a ton of food so unless you're a total glutton, one order of... More

The wait is quite long, the service is just ok but it's worth it because the food was amazing! We came here 3 times for take out on our 10 day visit to PEI because it was that good! Particularly delicious were the lobster rolls and the fish and chips. Beware though because they close off the wait line about... More

We had supper here late summer. We all had the fish and chips as the menu was not big at all. My wife and son enjoyed the fish and chips but my daughter and I didn't. Nice location and reasonably priced. Lots of people rave about their fish and chips and I also hear others who don't like it. All... More

My partner and I went to Richard's on their second last day of being open for the season. We were on a hunt for the best fish & chips on the island. We arrived around 5:30 and the line up was pretty big.This didn't both us one bit though, and took it as a good sign that so many people... More

We eat at Richards every year while vacationing in PEI. We have always had wonderful meals, and can honestly say, we are always delighted with what we choose. A must if you are visiting in Brackley Beach. The chef there is top notch and the staff is so pleasant too.
