3/17 update from Fishermen’s Net

Hello and Happy St. Patty’s Day!
First, I would like to apologize for the lack of lobster in the tank/case. The weather, as well as other factors, have caused a drastic increase in the prices making them fly off the charts. I made an executive decision to hold off and wait a couple of weeks before re-ordering and to allow the prices to stabilize. This too shall pass!!!
Today we have a Fish-N-Chip special for $9.99
Fried clam plate is $16.99
AND we have…
Crabmeat on sale at $12.99/lb

Thank you all for making this a GREAT winter!!! We are hoping to make this a GREAT summer for you!!

Stay safe!
