    I purchased lobsters a couple of months before Valentines Day. Right before V Day, I started seeing adds for a certain percentage off. I emailed and asked to get that discount and they took care of it immediately! Of course the Lobsters were fresh, alive and delicious!

    It was easy to call (I did have to wait awhile to talk to a customer service person) and use the gift certificate to get the lobsters. The lobsters came on the day it was promised, and I received an email to let me know. The quality of the lobsters were excellent! Thank you!

    Purchased a couple of 2lb lobsters for our Valentines/Anniversary dinner. It was as if we were in Boston at legal seafood! We were not disappointed. Sweet, tender lobster. We paired it with drawn butter, mini red potatoes and asparagus spears. Coupled with a beautiful champagne and we had a memorable dinner!

    We ordered four 1.5 lb live lobsters to have for dinner on Christmas Eve. They arrived mid-day and the lobsters were active and fresh. We steamed them and they were very flavorful and tasty. Everyone was happy. I have ordered lobster for my family many times and Legal Seafood is really great. I could order lobster from a few places within driving distance but they are alwasy bland and tasteless.

    We ordered 6 two pound lobsters for Christmas but unfortunately FedEx had a 24 hour delay in Indianapolis so the lobsters were dead on arrival. A call to Legal Seafood Customer Service quickly remied the situation at no additional cost. The lobsters were shipped immediately and arrived two hours before our dinner Christmas Eve. The lobsters were excellent! Given this experience and the "no questions asked" customer service we will definitely be ordering again.

    The lobsters arrived perfectly and ALIVE! my niece was so EXCITED to receive this gift as she lives in Texas now, she misses the new England seafood and even though her clam chowder ( promotional gift ) did not arrive with this order , after I contact Legal they graciously sent it out to her right away and she was extra thrilled. I highly recommend legal for all occasions and their customer service is outstanding.

    Delicious whole lobsters that arrived alive in the Rocky Mountains. Our resident expert lobster preparer cooked them to perfection. My only disappointment was that I received a coupon from Legal for 20% off any order the day they arrived. That would have been nice to apply it towards the 6 live two pound lobster order.

    Enjoyed all that was shipped to our home. The Clam Chowder was incredible. Lobsters were great, but 2 of the 6 were mush after boiling. Could have been our fault? The container / box arrived split open on the side and was soaking wet. Maybe reason for the 2-mushy ones, as ice completely gone. Lobster Bisque was amazing. Thank you for the experience!

    I sent a lobster bake meal to my in_laws for a gift. It was perfect for those hard to shop for who have everything and dont want anything. The dinner arrived right on time and they enjoyed it tremendously. Even split it up for 2 meals. They reported the chowder was jam packed with clams. Well worth it!

    Ordered 6 lobsters. Fast overnight shipping arriving on time. 5 of them were alive and tasted great. One poor guy was dead and must have been for sometime, as it cooked and was flaking, nasty. I will probably go through legal sea food again, just slightly disappointed with the one dead lobster at a premium price.

    My father is a big fan of lobster so for his 85th birthday I sent him and my mom two lobsters. I ordered them pre-cooked s my parents are elderly and I didn't want to have them bother with the cooking. To my (and their surprise), they received two live lobsters. They had it cooked at a nearby restaurant and all was well in the end. Customer service was very helpful in listening to my issue and rectifying the situation.

    My 97 year old fatber, an old Bostonian, residing in California has two rotating caregivers. Neither had ever eaten a whole lobster or "real" clam chowder......well they have now...... and I'll never hear the end of it Now its........when are we gonna do it again? Jim, who I told you knew Paul Revere, is looking forward to his 98th year annual birthday lobster in December! Glad the shipping rates got lowered....every little bit helps! The meal was a 10 on a 5 scale!

    I ordered Lobsters and Chowder for my parents who live in Florida as an anniversary Gift. Unfortunately they arrived dead which limbs falling off and no chowder which was disapppointing due to spend so much money on the food and shipping! Thankfully i spoke to the kindest who in customer service willing to help resolve the situation. She ordered new lobsters which are set to arrive today ( alive hopefully!).

    We bought a 12 pack of pre-cooked lobsters for a party and it was a great decision. Not having to hassle with cooking and the smell that comes with it was a joy. The ordering process was simple and delivery was as promised. While we paid a premium price for what we received, on balance it was worthwhile.

    After visiting your restaurant in Boston years ago, all special occasions consisted of Lobsters from you. Always fresh and Kicking (sorry) do miss the seaweed in the box. Adds a lot of flavor when steamed. This is over 40 yrs. Have you ever had live lobsters in a carton getting on a plane, I have in Boston!
