A great dinner idea is to cook your own lobster dinner. Buy live lobsters from a tank and mussels from Hannaford Supermarket (in town at 86 Cottage St), along with fresh bread, corn on the cob, and redskin potatoes. In July 2009 lobsters were $5.50 per pound so each lobster was around $7-7.50.

Just bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Boil redskins for 15-20 minutes (until potatoes are soft) adding corn for last 4-5 minutes and remove. Meanwhile steam mussels in a pan just until shells open - don't overcook - and start on the mussels as appetizers. Then add lobsters to large pot and boil for 5 minutes (measure from when water boils again after adding lobsters) while you melt the butter in the microwave. Add some fresh bread and a bottle of wine from House Wine (very friendly and helpful - on Main St.). The kids will love the hands-on cooking of live shellfish and happily the cooking is easy and fun. The food will taste fresher and less over-cooked than in a restaurant, and you can get a nice wine at an affordable price. The informal setting will create a long relaxing, fun, and memorable evening. 

If you have access to a kitchen, this is a fun and affordable evening for the whole family.
