    Hard shells are lobsters that have reached their growing capacity. They are typically packed to the brim with meat that is firm and dense in texture.
    New shells have a softer shell and hold extra water weight. The meat is typically more tender and sweeter in flavor, but you may want to try to order a slightly larger soft shell lobster!

  • Cooked lobsters are meant to be prepared and served the day received, however they can stay in the refrigerator overnight
  • Shelf life of lobster meat is up to a week if stored properly, kept in the fridge in a container of ice.

Just wanted to let you know that McLoon’s delivered, and our kids were very, very happy. They said the lobster rolls were delicious with plenty of lobster meat and the blueberry bread pudding added by McLoon’s was fabulous.

Our daughter sent us a lovely gift of lobsters for our anniversary. Wanted to let you know how great they were. They were really cold, survive the trip to Utah! We enjoyed them for two more days. Good packaging and appreciated the cooking instructions!

We had visited McLoon 's Lobster Shack, and wanted to treat our family for a special event. We ordered 10 lobster rolls. Even getting the package was cool. It's packed with everything you need, instructions, all the touches, and somehow the meat is the absolute best! I know it's fresh, maybe it's the way it's picked and packed. Perfect, thank you McLoons! We had no problems. Overall experience, super!

All I can say is WOW the McLoons complete lobster dinner was beyond fabulous. I purchased it for my sister's birthday and she was blown away by the high quality lobster meat, beautiful blueberry pudding, lobster stew, and all the fixings including real Maine butter for the lobster rolls. Packaging was fantastic. She lives in California and her beautiful lobster dinner arrived in perfect shape. THANK YOU for offering such a great product.

My dad is 87 years old and he has had many, many lobster rolls in his life. He was born a half a mile from the ocean in Swampscott MA, and visted all of the famous shacks, and restaurants, all over New England, Florida and England and Africa in the Korean War. When he received his present he called me that night and said he has never had a more fresh delicious lobster roll in his entire life and he wasn’t saying it just to be polite, I promise you that my dad does not do that! He didn’t believe me but now he does!My father is very hard to please when it comes to food, and that’s putting it mildly, he adored the lobster rolls! He was impressed by the packaging and how everything was so carefully done. Thank you.

On time delivery, as promised. Perfectly packaged. I ordered the lobster rolls as an early Christmas treat for my daughter and I. We couldn't have been happier with the result. The lobster meat was sweet and fresh and took me right back to my many summers in Maine. Loved having the traditional East Coast bun and the salted butter! We are still talking, thinking, dreaming about them and will have to order again soon. Thanks to you all, lobstermen, preparers, packers and shippers! Still feeling happy just thinking about it!

Everything arrived at its destination on time and was well-packaged. As always, the quality of lobster meat in the Lobster Roll Kit from McLoons was outstanding, and there was even enough lobster to make a small lobster stew to go along with the lobster rolls! We have ordered this gift for out-of-town relatives for the past several years, and they are always delighted.

We vacation in Maine every summer and eat at McLoons at least 3 times during our trip. We absolutely love it there, so ordering through Goldbelly was such a treat. Our lobster rolls were beautifully and securely packaged. The food was absolutely delicious and there was an abundant amount of lobster meat. We would definitely order through Goldbelly again.
