These lobsters are fresh steamed in our store just before shipping. They arrive to you chilled and ready-to-eat. If you prefer to have your lobsters warmed up, we provide some simple reheating instructions that will ensure the meat does not get overcooked. All orders come packed with enough butter, bibs and lobster crackers to accommodate your feast.
Depending on the destination of your shipment, you’ll be offered local delivery or FedEx overnight service. All shipments to zip codes outside of Manhattan will always be sent via FedEx Priority Overnight Service to make sure they arrive at your door in peak freshness. In most areas this means the package will arrive no later than 12 pm. Overnight shipments cannot be delivered on Sunday’s, Monday’s, major holidays or the day after major holidays due to FedEx’s operating schedule.
Local deliveries to Manhattan based zip codes will be delivered using our own Lobster Place truck. Please make sure someone is available at the “ship to” address to accept delivery between 12-4pm.
Please keep in mind that to maximize freshness, your seafood should be consumed on the night that it is received.
