Default Live Lobsters Online

I am thinking of doing a dinner with live lobsters for six around Christmas. Does anyone have first hand knowledge of a place to order online? Googling brings up quite a few places but having never bought them online I would like to have a reference. I would like to get six 1 1/2 to 2#ers.

Thanks,
Aubrey

I'm a lobsterman. I think you can buy them in florida cheaper than you can buy them online.

For obvious reasons I have never bought online from them, but I have used them to ship lobsters to friends around the country.

If you want, I will go and place the order myself for you, just let me know.

My wife orders from livelob and so far over the course of many years I have been extremely satisfied, not only with the lobsters but everything we have gotten from them.

Thanks to all. I will check out the local seafood place today to see what they can do.

RIB,
Thanks for the offer. Many years ago I was stationed at Ft Meade, MD and would fly to Quonset Point airport a couple of times a year. We would always take the cooler and orders from people back home. I don't remember the name of the lobster house we would go to but Gardener's looks very familiar. I would always buy the culls that were missing one or two claws. WOW! That was some good eating.

Aubrey- I have been meaning to ask this, family gets lobsters for xmas eve and my mother asked about having them shipped down. I will have to check out the links provided. Any idea what lobsters are costing per pound at the local supermarket? I want to say I saw $15/pound at Publix the other day.

10.99/lb at Publix today.

The Publix near me (its a rule in the are of Florida, there is a Publix every 1.5-2 miles, along with the Walgreens and CVS on alternating intersections) all have lobsters - all the time. I have never seen the tanks empy. They even have different color bands to differentiate the country of origin, U.S.A. or Canada.

No joke about how many of them there are. There are 3 Publix' near my house. All are less than 3 miles from me. Even if the ones near you do not carry them all the time, if they a seafood department they would probably order them for you. They are very accommodating I am always ultra careful when buying seafood from a supermarket, but the lobsters are LIVE, you can't fake that.

I haven't checked Publix. There is one 2 miles from my home so it would be convient. When I have paid any attention to the tanks, they have looked kind of small.

I did call Mainly Lobsters in Cocoa Beach today. They have them now for $8.99/lb now but said they usually go up as it gets closer to Christmas.

Thanks to all for the ideas.

Steve- I must have miss read the sign, I just took a glance as I was walking by. But how true you are about the number of Publix'! I have 2 within 2 miles, they seem to put them up on every street block! And CVS & Walgreens are just as bad, there everywhere!
