Are church suppers still something that exists on the Island?

Hi Wendy,

Unfortunately the majority of the classic “church” style lobster suppers no longer exist for a multitude of reasons (like St. Ann’s Lobster Suppers - dearly missed!) 

Fortunately, there are still a few establishments offering that same style of supper. New Glasgow Lobster Suppers would be one of the most popular ones, as well as Fisherman’s Wharf in Rustico. One other I can highly recommend is the Lobster Lover’s experience with the Fiddling Fisherman - the meal happens on a lobster boat right where the traps are pulled up from the ocean. Awesome experience! 

As another little tip, some community groups are still offering “cold plate” takeout lobster dinners for fundraisers in various communities - these can be few and far between and typically the only way to hear about them is from word of mouth or the local community newsletter - but they do still happen! With some luck and the right timing, you might stumble on one.
