Any recommendations for lobster (not lobster roll) in RI- Bristol County?

We have a lobster fanatic coming to visit and would love to take her for great lobster.

  1. Buy some at your local fishmonger's and cook it at home. You won't get anything better or fresher at any restaurant.

      Totally agree go to to the beach and get some fresh seaweed and sea water. go to a good lobster company in Galilee. Ask for HARD SHELL Lobsters. all soft shell lobsters are sold to most restaurants and contain about 40% meat loss because they are cheap so when lobsters are sold for cheap, run lol. . If boiled go for the 2lb size. :)

        While I agree with the others about cooking at home I realize it may not be an option for you as I know some don't like to deal with a live creature. I have lobster at least once a month but never had one in a restaurant as it is to messy for me and so easy and less expensive to do at home. I just seen an ad for Lobster cooked any way at Grist Mill in Seekonk MA. http://www.virtualr.net/colin-mcrae-d... But there are many places.

        I normally steam them at home.

        Frank, I tried your method of the sea water as I live a few blocks away, but must say I still prefer them steamed.
