I visited this location with my elderly parents who have had seafood chowder and lobster rolls in many locations on P.E.I. Island Favourites is a must try as it is second to none. Lots of big chunky lobster and rich and creamy seafood chowder! Can't...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.

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.

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

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.
