I am staying for a week in Windsor Locks area in CT and wanted to know I can buy some inexpensive lobsters since I could not find any affordable lobsters at the restaurants nearby. Lobsters were $20 a pound at Costco in Enfield, looking for some less expensive.

  1. Look in any fish market. I find it hard to believe that Costco is trying to sell lobsters for $20 a pound?? Wait a couple days as only an idiot would pay anywhere near that for them so they will soon die or be sold MUCH cheaper.

    1. They are $10 a pound at Stop & Shop and they'll steam them for you for free. Just call around, but generally $9-$10 is average. If you want to eat out, you might try the Maine Fish House in Windsor Locks. They are usually fairly reasonable as far as resturant prices

      1. City Fish in Wethersfield generally has them for $6-$10 per pound depending on the size. Buy Wednesday's Hartford Courant and cut out the coupon and get 15% off that price.

          Thanks for all the info, I will go to City Fish tomorrow. We did try Mickey's Oceanic in East Hartford today, tasty crab roll for 7.95 and the same for the fried clam strips. Alot of locals eat here. Discounts on certain items each day. Has anyone tried the lobster bisque or lobster roll? Note: They are not open on Sundays.

            DO you know if they are open on Saturday? I keep wanting to try them but I thought they were closed on the weekends? thanks

              If you are asking about Mickey's Oceanic Grill, they are open everyday except Sundays. I would definitely call ahead to make sure they are open. Their number is 528-6644.

          2. tinker's seafood is located on the north side of park road, just east of prospect st. good option versus city fish.. same setup but with nice tables to eat at if you want some fish & chips etc.
