The food is hot and delicious, the views are awesome, the people are great and they are usually lined up, so make haste. They open June 1st 2017.

I was talking to a local, and she strongly recommended me to stop by here for some lobster. It is inside of the national park, but if you tell the gate keeper that you are going to the restaurant, they will let you in for free. The place is very casual setting, and variety of fresh seafood with affordable price.... More

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

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
