Live Lobster?

Looking for a restaurant that serves fresh lobster. Will be vacationing up there next week & my husband wants to have our kids pick out a fresh lobster for dinner. We know there is a Red Lobster nearby, but wondered if there are any other choices. Nothing too fancy, want it to be family friendly. Thank you!

Manny's and Oceannaire have them, but they are very expensive. I would look into Jax Cafe, which has a large saltwater tank and more reasonable (altho not cheap by any means) prices.

Check out the lobster specials there on Sundays, but I think you have to call in advance to take part in it so they keep on top of demand.

A friend recently went to the Smack Shack downtown and really enjoyed it. I've only been to the 1029 Bar location for the Lobster Roll, which I thought was fantastic. I am not sure how the prices compare to Manny's or Oceanaire.
