A Plan To Put More Lobster In You: Twin Lobster Dinners At Oyster House


‘Tis the season for eating sea bugs, folks. Lobster dinners are popping up all over the place all of a sudden, and few are quite so anticipated as the Twin Lobster Dinners at Oyster House.

There are two important questions here: What do you get and how much will it cost. And both answers ought to make you smile.

For starters, this is a TWIN lobster dinner, so you get two whole steamed one-pound Maine lobsters (plus corn on the cob and drawn butter). The price? $28.

Of course, that’s just the base model, you understand. Suitable only for the amateurs and bargain hunters in the crowd.

Want to go the pro route? Show up early for happy hour at Oyster House (between 5-7pm Monday through Friday), take advantage of the East Coast oysters and cherrystone clams for a buck per, pair these with the deals at the bar (a $5 rotating punch, $3 oyster shooters or $5 Kenzinger shandies with hosemade rosemary lemonade) and you’ve got a perfect lobster pre-game going.

Oh, and something else cool? The lobsters that you’re eating are coming in from Maine. But more important, they’re coming in express from Maine. “Our lobsters are pulled from Maine’s cold waters on Tuesday evening, driven overnight, and picked up Wednesday morning,” according to owner Sam Mink. “They have been out of the water less than 24 hours when they hit your plate.”

The Twin Lobster Dinner deal starts this Wednesday, July 8, and is available every Wednesday night through August 26.
