Live Lobsters for Four
Choose your Delivery Date at Check Out!

Homarus sources their hearty, hard-shelled lobsters from pristine 500-foot waters 20 miles off the Maine coast. The rough, rocky ocean floor these lobsters call home is great for their health, which means great taste for us. These chilled-out and well-fed lobsters fill out their shells nicely as they grow, which hardens their outsides even more, resulting in nature's recipe for the perfect lobster. It’s no wonder Nobu and Grammercy Tavern buy their lobsters from Homarus—lobster doesn’t get any better than this.

Select from 4 sizes—“Quarters” (1¼ lbs), “Halves” (1½ lbs), “Pound & 3/4" (1¾ lbs) or “Deuces” (2 lbs).

"Quarters" (1¼ lbs) weigh approximately 1.25-1.35 lbs each. A small but substantial lobster, the Quarter totes the line between an appetizer, a light meal, or a surf and turf partner. Enjoy it on its own with drawn butter, or cook it and use the tender meat to make a lobster roll or tasty pasta dish.

"Halves" (1½ lbs) weigh approximately 1.5-1.65 lbs each. The pound and a half lobster is the most versatile. Share it with someone as a juicy appetizer (hot or cold), or enjoy as your main course with drawn butter and fresh lemon. You can prepare this lobster boiled, steamed, or grilled.

"Pound & 3/4" (1¾ lbs) weigh approximately 1.75-1.9 lbs each. The 1.75 pounder is a favorite among top chefs. Perfect as an appetizer for two (hot or cold) or a hearty entrée for one, steamed or grilled, and enjoyed with drawn butter and fresh lemon.

"Deuces" (2 lbs) weigh approximately 2.0-2.15 lbs each. The Homarus special two pounder is found in deep dark cold water way off the coast of Maine. These beautiful lobsters are full of meat and can be eaten whole, or you can channel your inner chef and use the lobster parts for different applications. The two-pounder is the go-to lobster for Homarus co-founder Jordan.
