Bring Fine Maine Dining Home With 2 lb. Live Lobsters
Let Maine Lobster Now give your dinner routine a little shot in the arm. Although “little” isn’t exactly right when we’re talking about our 2 lb. live lobsters shipped overnight directly to your front door. Bring this classic New England delicacy home to add some much-needed excitement to your boring dinner routine, or as a romantic dinner surprise for your partner. Lobsters are easy to cook on their own by following our cooking directions, or you can extract the meat to use in classic dishes like lobster BLTAs or lobster ravioli, two easy meals to make right at home.
Sustainably Harvested Lobster
Our live lobsters are wild-caught using the latest sustainable sourcing methods that help ensure the long-term population of this coastal favorite and support thousands of independently owned businesses in Maine. All our 1 lb. live lobsters are healthy, harvested fresh in the Gulf of Maine, and free of antibiotics. You can feel confident that you’re eating great-tasting lobster that’s sourced responsibly.
Unmatched Quality and Freshness
We always handle our 2 lb. lobsters humanely and responsibly. We purchase our lobsters directly from local wharfs along the coast and immediately transport them to our storage facility. We keep our lobsters in a saltwater tank that is maintained at a temperature that promotes their health and enables them to thrive until the day they arrive at your home.
We source our live lobsters directly from independently owned wharfs, some just a few miles from our headquarters here in Maine and others all along the North Atlantic coast. Each day the docks trace their landings to the lobstermen and women who catch them, and we trace our lobsters to each dock where they landed.
What’s the Serving Size of 2 lb. Live Lobster?
One question customers almost always ask about ordering lobsters online is: “How much meat will I get from my live lobster?” Generally speaking, a 1 lb. hardshell lobster is expected to yield about 3.2 oz. of lobster meat. With the standard serving size of lobster meat being 3.5 oz, your 2 lb. live Maine lobster will be plenty to fill 1 hungry person and ideal to split between 2 people.
For your lobster feast, might we recommend starting with an appetizer of mouth-watering crab cakes or clam cakes? As a side dish to serve with your cooked lobster, add traditional corn on the cob or Susan’s Seafood Stuffing. Of course, no New England meal would be complete without a classic Maine-iac Chocolate Whoopie Pie or Maine Blueberry Pie.
If you think a 2 lb. live lobster might be too much food, or simply won’t be enough, shop our huge live lobster selection to order a different size.
Are Lobsters the Next Superfood?
Lobsters offer a wide range of beneficial health qualities similar to other popular “superfoods.” Lobster (similar to other seafood we sell) is an excellent source of protein, offering 19 grams of protein per 3.5 oz. serving.
Lobster also contains a healthy dose of vitamins B3, B6, and B12, which help support metabolism and cognitive function. Lobster is an excellent source of the antioxidant selenium, which prevents cellular damage, and lobster is also high in zinc to boost immunity. And like salmon, lobster contains omega-3 fatty acids that help lower inflammation and can reduce the risk of heart disease.

- Handle live lobsters with care. Live lobsters are best cooked the day they arrive. We cannot guarantee overnight survival after delivery.
- Refrigerate the entire box. If the box doesn’t fit, carefully remove lobster(s) and wrap them with the seaweed included in your shipment in damp paper. Do NOT store in an air-tight container.
- Do NOT put lobsters on ice or in freshwater. Any of these will kill your lobster(s).
Warning: Closing claws and tails can cause bodily harm. If lobsters arrive without bands, please exercise extreme caution when handling.

Lobster is now our regular Thanksgiving dinner. I purchased 2 lb lobsters for the last two years in a row and will order again this year. Lobsters arrived alive and were very tasty
Burdella BaconVerified BuyerOutstanding
We ordered half a dozen of the 2# live lobster to celebrate a birthday. Ordering was so easy and the website has detailed directions for preparations. The lobsters arrived by 9 a.m. on a Saturday so no worries about a late dinner. They were definitely very alive! The lobster meat was delicious and we had a really fun dinner cracking the claws, & extracting tail meat.
RandyGreat Family Night
This has become a tradition every spring because we have 4 birthdays in March. The lobsters are always fresh and delicious. I hope demand this year doesn't stop our plans?
MaddogLove it so
The lobsters actually appear very fresh and look alive. In Tennessee this is a rare occurrence.
