“Get Your Lobster Here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

My husband and I checked out the prices at some of the lobster shops in town and ended up buying a cooked 5 lb. lobster to share from the "Alma Lobster Shop". They give you a better price on the bigger lobsters and we weren't disappointed in the taste at all. It was so good, and not only did it feed us both for supper, we had enough left over to have for lunch the next day. So glad we were in town during lobster season!

“our first supper”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Our first supper was thanks to the Lobster Shop. My daughter had lobster a couple of times before, but was always presented as a cut-open lobster tail with the trimmings. This time, it was a full lobster, surrounded with mussels. The look on her face was priceless - but she managed to eat everything. As for my youngest daughter, it was her first time trying mussels - she couldn't get enough, she loved them. A first experience for the kids.

“Really interesting place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Really tasty lobsters bought here and very helpful service. The coolest thing is that they have a tank filled with odd lobsters, crab and such. Lobsters with blue on them or 3 claws, etc. Very cool.

“Straightforward. Get a freshly cooked lobster, and eat it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Pick a cooked lobster based on its size/price (written with black marker on one of its claws). They'll cut open the main bits to help the amateurs (like we were). They put it on a tray, with napkins, picks, pincers etc. Walk outside and sit at a picnic table, and blast away at the lobster. The cooked lobster is sitting on ice so it is cold, but it is far more reasonably priced than buying the 'market price lobster' in the various restaurants in Alma (we ordered lobster in two other restaurants in Alma, and got nowhere near the amount of lobster as we did at the Alma Lobster shop). The smoked salmon was also excellent. I HIGHLY recommend this place for you to get your lobster fix satiated.

“Just plain lobster”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Great seafood shop just on the edge of Alma. 2 choices for cooked lobster at incredibly reasonable prices. We split a larger beastie for lunch. They give you a tray, crackers, scissors, melted butter & lots of napkins. Picnic tables are outside behind the shop. No eating inside. For inexpensive cooked lobster with no frills, you can't beat it.
