Live Lobsters in Westchester

I'm jealous of all the Long Island 'hounds bragging about their cheap lobster ponds! Has anyone found any place in Westchester that offers healthy seabugs at attractive prices?

This week, I've seen $7.99/lb., for all sizes, at both Stew Leonard's (1 Stew Leonard Drive, off I-87, Yonkers) and at DJ Fish (1575 Central Park Avenue at Tuckahoe Road, Yonkers).

That's not a terrible price, but any lobsterman or -woman on the water will tell you the market's been pretty depressed lately and there should be some better deals out there... Let's use this thread to keep each other informed.

Thank you.

  1. IMaybe Ebb Tide in Port Chester? I haven't been lately but will try to stop by and check lobster prices next time I'm over there.

        Really? Won't be buying them there then. My husband is actually on LI today near Plainview and I practically begged him to stop at the place the LI'ers mentioned but he may not have time.

    2. This week, Stew Leonard's has chicken lobsters for $5.99/lb. and larger ones for the same $7.99/lb. as last week. The signs in the store claim both those prices are $3 off. Hmmm; interesting math.

      1. 1 1/2 lbs. @ $7.99/lb. at DeCicco's today. Anyone find better?

        1. there is a place on 9A over in greenburgh between wendy's and sam's club or costco whichever is over there, might have a good price, i think he claims to sell wholesale

            Are you talking abut the place just about under the I-287 over pass?
            They do sell wholesale and retail.

          2. 4th of July weekend, found $5.99/lb. for 1-1/4 lbs. at Stew's.
