With our dinner you won’t be have to choose between steak and lobster, enjoy both with our Surf & Turf dinner! Fire up your grill and get cooking! While you’re cooking start your meal off right with a taste of our Clam Chowder or the Lobster Bisque. Grab your steaks and lobster off of the grill and enjoy the best of both worlds. The feast isn’t over until you’ve at least had a few bites of our cheesecake, which comes in a variety of flavors.
Surf & Turf Fun Fact: Surf & Turf did not become popular until the 1960’s. For awhile some got creative and alternatively called it “Beef & Reef” or “Pier & Steer”, can you imagine those names sticking? Originally the lobster of choice was a frozen South African lobster tail; over time the Maine Lobster you have come to know and love replaced the spiny lobster because of it’s more robust flavor.
How long can I keep my Maine lobsters alive?
We strongly recommend that you cook and enjoy your fresh Chix Lobsters the day they arrive. Upon arrival we suggest you immediately refrigerate contents or place the entire box in a cool environment. If you are unable to cook the Chix Lobsters the day that they arrive, you should partially cook them. Partially cook the lobsters by boiling for one third of the suggested cooking time listed in the cooking guide. Refrigerate the blanched lobsters for up to 48 hours. When you are ready to serve, place the blanched lobsters back in boiling water for the remaining two thirds time specified.
About Our Lobsters
All of our lobsters are hand selected hard-shell and wild caught in Maine daily and are antibiotic free. Once the lobsters have been selected and graded by our team, we keep them healthy by holding them in large tanks that have constant re-circulation of cold Maine ocean water. Once it is time for your lobsters to be shipped, we pack them in a cooler with some seaweed (when available) and ice packs to ensure they arrive alive and fresh to your doorstep, within 24 hours.
