Unlike cinematic love scenes, cuisine can be enjoyed in the company of parents without embarrassment. Dodge future moments of uneasiness with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of seafood, steaks, drinks, and more at Alisson's Restaurant in Kennebunkport.
Alisson's patrons engage in casual dining with a menu of lunch and dinner dishes culled from the sea's tummy-rumbling depths and the meadow's succulent stretches. Seafoodies get their lunch fix with Alisson's signature lobster roll, packed with mounds of Maine lobster with a dollop of mayonnaise, served on a grilled roll chaperoned by fries or coleslaw ($17.95).
Both midday and evening eaters can access a roster of 8-ounce burgers ($7.95 and up) and 10-inch pizzas ($6.95 and up) that help diners decorate their interiors with a selection of 20 tasteful toppings, from banana peppers to crumbled bacon and edible lamps. For dinner, ask the restaurant's veteran waitstaff about ample entrees such as the 12-ounce New York sirloin strip—buried under beer-battered onion rings, potatoes, and fresh vegetables ($21.95)—or the baked haddock served with wild rice and tame vegetables ($17.95).
Alisson's happening calendar of events expands the palate to trivia on Tuesday, date night on Wednesday, and Mexican specials on Thursday. An extensive wine and beer list complements nightly merriment, clearing pipes for Friday-night karaoke and lubricating hinges for popping and locking to live tunes on Saturday.
