    Market Basket has them for $3.99/lb or are you looking for dinner at a restaurant? My mother went about a week ago to Finz and dedham and got a nice twin lobster dinner for $19.99 http://www.hipfinz.com/dedham.php Two 1.5 lb lobsters with corn and potatoes.

      Mt. Vernon in Revere always seems to have a good lobster special. The popovers are pretty damn good as well.

          I went by Mt. Vernon yesterday and the twin lobsters are $11.99. That price is only on Saturday-Monday though.

          Foodmaster had them for $4.99 a pound this week.

            It has been $9.99 lately on weekends that they offer a coupon in the Boston Metro.

            The Rocky Neck Fish Co. at the East Milton Marketplace still has medium-firm shell lobsters for $5.95/lb. with sizes around 1 3/4 lb. They are better than average quality.

              I went to MB yesterday and got 3 lobsters for 4.99lb.

              This time though, they were hardshells, yum.

                  Lobster at the Rocky Neck Fish Co. is up to $6.99/lb. but they are now hard shelled lobsters averaging 1.5 - 1.75 lbs.,, a good buy if you are in the area.

                  Roche Brothers is running an under $5.00/lb special this week for smaller lobsters, no idea about whether they are hard or softer shells.

                    Any updates here? I am looking to do a lobster feast, probably Friday night. I just called Market Baset and they are still at $4.99, which isn't bad. I got in at $3.99 a couple of weeks ago there.
