Worth the wait!! The lobster rolls were absolutely delicious and we enjoyed sitting upstairs on the patio watching the sunset in this very scenic spot overlooking the water. Luckily, a friend recommended this restaurant to us, otherwise I don't think we would have found it....More

I contacted Richard's. They have public washrooms with ramps, but no hand rails in the stalls. The restaurant has a ramp and a table to accommodate wheelchairs and will move another table in place if necessary.
