The title says it all ...... live maine lobsters are $7.99 a pound at 99 Ranch in Richmond and in most others I would assume. I doubt it will get much cheaper than this.

    Thanks for posting this Gordon. I bought 3 lobsters there, for about 4 lbs total, at that price about 2 weeks ago. I intended to post about it and forgot. I served them steamed with butter and pretended I was back in New England. Total deliciousness, at a great price.

      Friday I picked up 2 very lively lobsters in the City, 1 1/2 - 1 3/4 pounders each for the same price ($7.99/pound) at Sun Fat on Mission - Cross Street 23rd.

          We picked up a pair on Clement for a similar price per pound, though they were huge. Something like 6 lbs of lobster for around $50. Very lively. This was in the seafood shop on Clement a block east of New May Wah on the south side of the street, with lots of fish tanks.

              No, they're only set up to fry.
