Where to get a good lobster in Nashua/Manchester this time of year?

My birthday is coming up, and all I want is a lobster (at a restaurant). Not lobster in a special dish, casserole, or any other way but whole, steamed or boiled. Any suggestions on a good place to get one in the Nashua/Manchester area? I realize it'd be easier in the summer--and I'd head out to Brown's or someplace on the coast if they were open--but since it is winter, I'd prefer to stay local if I can get something good.

    1. I prefer Lobster Boat to Tinker's.

      PS- the site is adding an "automatic" address for the Lobster Boat III (?) in Litchfeild, but actually I had in mind the origina; one in Merrimack or Lobster Boat II in Nashua.

        Casual is fine. Thanks for the suggestions--I'll look into both of those. Also considering the Milford Fish Market--anyone been lately?

          I would prefer to take home a steamed lobster from Market Basket than to eat at MFM.

            My last experience left me with a bad taste in my mouth, and an even worse one in my wallet. I paid over $12 a pound for scallops that when I got them home had a very strong ammonia smell. I didn't bother taking them back, with gas prices at $3+ a gallon it would have cost me $ to return them. I will just never go back. Shame really, because I eat mostly seafood and vegetables, and very little meat so they would have had a very loyal customer. I usually go to Market Basket because they are the least expensive and I have NEVER gotten bad seafood yet from them.

              Kind of crazy how MB is the place to shop for seafood, especially that Milford location, that store is really lacking in aesthetics.

                I go to the one in Londonderry or Concord NH usually because I live on the Manchester/Litchfield line area. The MB in Concord has a large selection, and sometimes you can get Sockeye Salmon for < $6 a pound!
