The Maine Event

Rocky coastline, picturesque lighthouses, and a staggering array of superb seafood. That's why we call this package 'The Maine Event', in tribute to the charms of that northern state. It's got lobster, of course. Plus littleneck steamer clams. Plus clam chowder. This is how to buy online and overload on a good thing!

Chowder is a given, the traditional way to open a meal 'down East.' Littleneck clams are a bivalve mollusk – crack open the matching top and bottom hard shells when you're ready to enjoy them. And nothing is more emblematic of Maine than pure lobster. We get ours from qualified sources all along the coast, and we guarantee you'll find the meat sweet and tender and full of ocean flavor. Convenient mail order and expert delivery makes this a simple indulgence. Can you smell the salt air already?
For Two:
  • Two Live or Pre-Cooked Legal Lobsters
  • One 32 oz. Quart of New England Clam Chowder
  • One lb. of Littleneck Clams

    The dinner, our very Favorite selection from Legal was delicious. Love the clam chowder. There was enough to have it for supper again the next night.I have the nation's largest collection of claw crackers, we order this meal THAT often. I should open a store on EBay. unfortunately one of my lobsters was dead and I was afraid to serve it. It had a very soft shell and its head fell off.. (should I be concerned?) It was still a great meal and I'll order it again.

    I order this package along with shrimp for my daughter every year for her birthday. As in past years, it once again did not disappoint, it usually ends up being two meals because the quantity is so much.

    Before traveling for a week we ordered a seafood delivery to arrive the day after we returned home. Delicious! We had lobster and clam chowder the night after we returned and claims the night after that. Very cool.

    I ordered this as a gift for my parents, and they absolutely loved it. I happened to be there the day it arrived, so I helped them crack open the lobsters and get the meat out, which they then refrigerated to have for dinner after I had gone home. They raved about everything.

    I used to have my own lobster traps but since I moved south, I missed the taste of fresh lobster. I tried getting it in restaurants and supermarkets here but just never had the fresh flavor. Have ordered from Legal Seafoods twice"Maine Event" and both times everything was perfect. Next time I get to Boston I will stop in for dinner but in the mean time overnight shipping will have to do. I do appreciate the great quality. Thanks!!

    I send the main event to customers I do business with. Everyone I have ever sent the main event too absolutely love it!! Nothing but good comments and the lobster pot is always an added bonus that makes the whole meal even better.

    What a perfect meal and an incredible experience. Easy online ordering. Set delivery date and time. Arrived when expected. Lobsters alive and kicking. Clams and Clam chowder fresh and delicious. All all the utensils. Nothing like fresh east coast seafood. Especially here in the Midwest. Highly recommend for a taste of home.

    We were pleasantly surprised to receive our order at the exact time we specified. The lobsters were alive and kicking!! I watched a video of the president of your company, who recommended we microwave the lobsters rather than the tradition way of steaming. They were absolutely delicious!!!! We couldn't have been any happier going to a fancy restaurant to get this meal. We plan to order items as gifts to friends and family in the near future. Couldn't be more pleased.

    Moved to GA from Boston recently. Sent the Maine Event as a Father's day gift and it was delivered on time and everything was great. My parents told me the lobsters were big and said everything tasted amazing. The other great thing was the tracking of my shipment so I knew when they would receive it which is important when shipping live lobsters.

    Our original order arrived undeliverable but immediate and responsive customer service coordinated for best day to redeliver. The order arrived and lobsters, chowder, and clams were so wonderful and made an amazing meal! Due to the previous deliver issue, the company representative provided additional products, such as a lobster bisque, and this was such an appreciated response to the delay! I will recommend this service and company to everyone and I definitely plan on using their service again! Thank you!

    The lobsters were a gift for a friend who lives in the mountains of northern Pennsylvania, hundreds of miles from the ocean. When she opened the box, she said she was speechless. By all accounts everything arrived fresh and delicious. A gift that was meaningful and memorable.

    I sent this meal to my father and grandmother for their Christmas Eve dinner and they absolutely loved it. The food was fresh and there was quite a bit - enough for some leftovers. They were absolutely blown away we it and being in FL they never are able to get good seafood. The were completely chuffed. I will be sending this meal again.

    We have ordered from Legal Sea Foods for ourselves and as gifts a number of times over the years. The lobsters, clams, and chowder are such a treat! We had a dead lobster in our last order (first time for us), and Legal Sea Foods made good in an unexpected way by sending us two fresh ones! They have great products and stand behind them. We recommend them whole heartedly!

    Everything came on time. The Live Lobsters were in great condition and tasty. Our only disappointment was in the clams. 1/2 of them were broken, and I do not think it was a full dozen. everything was good.
