You have to try the lobster chowder if you come here! So fabulous!! A bit on the pricey side but very tasty.

Hi Thank you for your feedback . We are very happy that you enjoyed the chowder. We did keep our prices the same as last year although the seafood prices did take a jump this year. We hope to see you again next year.

Great food and services was very nice. Kids loved the grilled cheese and the tuna panini was amazing. So good it's worth saving the address for next year vacation. Price is fair for local food.

This was one of the better lobster rolls I had on my maritimes trip. For me, I like my lobster in chunks not shredded so this place hit the spot for me. We went with the Original and with the "Greenhorn" which came with chives...More

We've had a lot of lobster rolls and this one is by far the best ! Lobster portions are up from last year by a lot. The staff was very friendly and welcoming and the food was well priced given the price of lobster.

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.
