    Product Description

    Order the Cocktail Hour Lobster Dinner for Two

    A “cocktail hour” is usually known for small plates and appetizers, but we promise that nobody is going hungry after they enjoy the Cocktail Hour lobster dinner. You and your partner are in for a special treat with this 4-course meal, complete with all the accouterments and kitchen gadgets you need to enjoy cooking lobster at home. The meal starts with shrimp cocktail and lobster bisque before moving on to the main course of 2 lb. live lobsters wild-caught in the Gulf of Maine. The cherry on top is a classic Maine dessert: Maine-iac Chocolate Whoopie Pie.

    Sustainably Harvested Lobsters

    Our lobsters are wild-caught using the latest sustainable harvesting methods that help ensure the long-term population of this coastal favorite and support thousands of independently owned businesses in Maine. You can feel confident that you’re eating great-tasting lobster that’s sourced responsibly.

    Unmatched Quality and Freshness

    We always handle our 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.

    Where Your Lobster Comes From

    We source our 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 every lobsterman and woman who catches them, and we trace our lobsters to every dock where they landed.

    Nutritional Benefits

    Are Lobsters the Next Superfood?

    Lobster meat offers a host of beneficial health qualities similar to other “superfoods.” Lobster 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 to support metabolism and cognitive function. It’s an excellent source of the antioxidant selenium which prevents cellular damage and is high in zinc to boost immunity. Like other seafood we sell, lobster also contains omega-3 fatty acids that help lower inflammation and can reduce the risk of heart disease.

    Storage & Thawing

    Simple Instructions for Storing Live Lobster

    We’ll help keep your live lobster at the highest quality possible.

    • 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.
