    There was no doubt that those two feisty guys were alive and kicking. We followed your instructions for cooking them. Can't imagine anything better.

    I feel like Legal Seafoods may be on the pricey side of options out there, but everything arrived on time in excellent condition. The lobsters were perfect and plenty lively when we opened the cooler!

    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!

    Have been ordering lobsters from Legal Sea Food for years an years. Have visited your restaurant in Boston and also purchased live lobsters at the airport and ordered them for each special occasion. I have never, never been disappointed. Outstanding!!

    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.

    Great Customer Service

    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!).

    Wonderful customer Service since our lobster was not moving at first they gave us a gift certificate even though it did move a little and I ate it. It was kind of broken up, poor thing. Thank you so much.

    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!

    While the quality of the lobster is very good, this is the second time that I have ordered two one and a half pound lobsters and one of the lobsters was clearly less than one and a half pounds.

    Lobsters for Dad!

    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.

    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.

    Since I definitely live far away from the seashore but live there previously I have missed all the wonderful Maine lobsters and all the good seafood so I recommend this company everything arrived as it should and it was well packaged and I received it the day that I wanted it

    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!

    I so enjoyed my lobsters. They were fresh and sweet tasting. I do think they are pricey, so will only get them as a treat, but worth the $$ for a treat.

    Delivery was as promised. Lobsters were packed on dry ice. They were large with a lot of meat (1.25#). Taste was delicious. Came with buns and crackers and great directions for cooking. Can't wait to order again!

    We ordered 2 two pound lobster. It was shipped in 1 day. It was very fresh and delicious. They sent a complimentary 32 oz container of clam chowder. That was awesome tasting!

    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!

    Great delivery!

    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.

    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.
