1.25 lb. Lobster


When Yankee Magazine sent their editor up the Maine coast in early 2017 to sample dozens of lobster rolls and crown one champion, she chose McLoons Lobster Shack for their fresh lobsters and perfect rolls. Known as “quarters” by those in the biz, this 1.25 lb. lobster is the most common size available. This one should fill you up and allow room for sides and dessert! Perfect for serving at large dinner parties or lobster bakes!

More Details

  • The Difference between New Shell and Hard Shell:
    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!

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.

The lobster from McLoon's was incredibly fresh and lively when it arrived. A rare experience in the high desert of New Mexico! 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!
