Lobster Mac & Cheese

Saying happy holidays with ready-to-bake lobster mac & cheese from Maine Lobster Now is sure to leave an impression. Our lobster mac recipe was prepared by an executive chef. It was taste-tested against several competitors and tweaked until we found the unanimous winner. This is a great dinner option to have on hand by itself or serve as a side dish during your Thanksgiving or Christmas holiday dinner.

Seafood Soups & Chowders

When you think of seafood, one of the first things to come to mind is clam chowder. We have that and so many more options to warm up for the holidays. All of our soups and chowders are loaded with large pieces of seafood like clams and lobster. Try our lobster bisque, haddock chowder, lobster stew, or seafood chowder that contains a smorgasbord of lobster, scallops, shrimp, haddock, and clams.

USDA Black Angus Prime Steaks

When it comes to lobster dinners, one of the most classic you can get is surf n' turf. To pair with your lobster order we offer delicious steaks. Visit our huge selection of USDA Prime Black Angus steaks, the same grade found at five-star restaurants. Order filet mignon, rib eye, strip steaks, porterhouse, and much much more.

Sea Scallops

Need a healthy and quick dinner option? Choose from several different sizes of delicious sea scallops that are easy to sear in a pan. Or grab our savory ready-to-cook bacon-wrapped scallops that make the perfect appetizer or finger food for a holiday party.


Clams, oysters, shrimp, and mussels are all available through Maine Lobster Now. Our shellfish are of the highest quality and make for perfect appetizers and meals on their own drenched in lemon and butter, or added to classic holiday recipes like linguine or stuffing.


Eating healthy during the holidays can be a challenge, but our seafood holiday gift guide is loaded to the gills with healthy options. So add some salmon to your weekly dinner planning. All our salmon varieties offer Omega 3s, vitamins, protein, and a dose of healthy fats. Best of all, salmon is a festive addition to holiday recipes. Make some lox or add it to a fresh salad for a pop of color and flavor.

Lobster Tails

When you don't want to go through the challenge of cooking and deshelling a whole live lobster, order our prepared lobster tails that are ready to cook. Choose from our small 3 oz. size to our best-selling 10-12 oz. tails that are perfect for any budget. This is the easiest way to bring home the classic flavors of Maine for the holidays.

Maine Blueberry Pie or Whoopie Pies

Maine may be well known for its lobster, but that's not the only sweet treat that comes out of the Pine Tree State. Maine is also well known for its blueberry harvest and blueberries make for some delicious blueberry pies. Another famous dessert to come from Maine is the whoopie pie, a round chocolate cake sandwich filled with vanilla créme. Grab either of these tasty desserts to treat yourself and the family this holiday season.

Maine Lobster Now Gift Cards

Have trouble deciding between all of these incredible options? A Maine Lobster Now gift card is the way to go. Let them choose which seafood products to order without them paying a dime. We offer physical gift cards you can gift in-person, or choose a digital version sent directly to any recipient's inbox.

Fresh Lobster Meat

Lobster meat from Maine Lobster Now is cooked the same day it's caught and then flash-frozen to maintain flavor and optimal freshness. Each piece is thick, juicy, and perfect to make your own lobster rolls at home or add it to salads, soups, and your favorite lobster recipes.

Alaskan King Crab Legs

If you love lobster and have never had crabmeat, Alaskan king crab legs should definitely be on your wishlist this year. We purchase these giant crustaceans directly from fishermen in the Pacific Northwest and Norway. Because of these connections, our Alaskan King crab leg selection includes sizes that cannot be found in supermarkets. Alaskan king crab meat is super sweet and tender, and pairs great dipped in melted butter or cocktail sauce.

Live Maine Lobster

Let’s talk about our "bread and butter." Our selection of live Maine lobsters ranges in size from 1 to 3 pounds (the state of Maine regulates the size of lobster that can be caught here). Cooking lobster at home can be a fun, festive way to enjoy a meal with family and friends during the holiday season. Our live lobsters are shipped overnight from Maine to anywhere in the country. (Note: It is highly recommended to cook live lobsters the day you receive them, and at the latest 24 hours after receipt. Since we do not deliver on national holidays themselves, use the calendar at checkout to find the closest day you can receive live lobsters around the holidays.)

Jumbo Lobster Tails

If your holiday festivities call for more meat than our standard lobster tails, then take things up a notch to our jumbo lobster tails. Starting at 14-16 oz., these massive lobsters are caught in the frigid waters of the North Atlantic and will make an eye-catching centerpiece at any holiday feast.

Seafood Gifts Under $150

Alaskan King Crab Leg Cluster

When you simply need more Alaskan king crab in your life, then add our Alaskan king crab leg clusters to your holiday wishlist. These gorgeous leg clusters include the entire side of the king crab. So you get all the legs, the claw, and even shoulder meat as an added bonus. Who doesn’t love a Christmas bonus!?

Lobster Dinner Kits for Two

If you’re looking for a way to treat someone to a special holiday meal without needing a reservation at a fancy restaurant, you can bring that same experience home this holiday with some of our lobster dinner kits for two. Try the Lighthouse Dinner that includes live lobsters, clam chowder, crab cakes, and much more! Or choose the Surf and Turf Tail Dinner for Two, where you’ll get lobster tails, USDA Black Angus Prime Filet Mignons, Clam Chowders and a dessert of Maine whoopie pies.

Seafood Gifts Under $200 & Above

More Lobster Dinners for Two

If the above full lobster dinner kits caught your eye but you want a little more bang for your buck under the Christmas tree, shop our full selection of delicious lobster dinners that come with lobsters, appetizers, side dishes, and desserts. This is a great option to impress the in-laws this holiday or treat your loved one to a gourmet meal at home.

North Atlantic Lobster

When you want a truly special treat for the holidays, cooking and sharing a giant North Atlantic lobster is the way to go. Bring good tidings and cheer to your holiday feast with one of these massive crustaceans to indulge in huge lobster tail meat and sweet, tender claw meat.

Giant Whole Alaskan King Crab

When you order our giant whole Alaskan king crabs, you’ve truly hit the motherlode. These gorgeous crustaceans range from 5-6 lbs. and are perfect for large family gatherings during the holidays. These crabs come fully cooked and are flash-frozen to preserve freshness.
