Hi Nicole,

There are no churches in PEI that offer regular lobster dinners.  During May-June when the spring lobster season is open there are, from time to time, churches and local community groups that will have a lobster supper which is often take-out. These are typically fund-raisers for church projects or community activities. These, when they occur, are “one offs” and are not regularly scheduled events.

For anyone who wishes to have a traditional PEI lobster supper, I recommend they go to one (or both) of the Island’s two main lobster suppers:  Fisherman’s Wharf Lobster Suppers in North Rustico and New Glasgow Lobster Suppers in New Glasgow.  You will get a real lobster scoff with all the trimmings at either of these venues.  To give you an idea of what these lobster suppers entail, you can check out the article I wrote on the enduring popularity of these two restaurants here.  The article also contains website links for both suppers which will give you more details on what each venue offers.

It’s a true Island experience to have a meal at a traditional PEI lobster supper. Make sure you go with a hearty appetite and expandable waistbands are recommended!

Enjoy your PEI holiday and lobster feast(s)!

Barbara
