Looking for source/rec for overnight lobster delivery from Me.

shellymck Nov 30, 2009 02:25 PM

My husband has strongly hinted that he would appreciate a lobster dinner for the holidays. What I'm looking for is the type that lends itself to gift-giving: a couple of live lobsters plus the crackers, hammers, a large pot, and the trimmings. I've found a lot of potential sources online but maybe someone on here has a favorite to recommend.

Thanks a lot.

      we've had good luck with Three Sons and they will allow you to use your own Fedex account if you have one .

      The quality from Brown Trading Company can't be beat!

        I haven't personally ever tried mail order lobster, but I've heard of this place often...

          Graffam's in Rockport is a great place. Very friendly, very professional. The ship a lot of lobster. The Trenton Bridge rec is also a good one.
