At D&R Market we have the freshest lobsters, but what distinguishes a fresh lobster from one that is sub-par? Ask any of our staff and they will be happy to answer just how fresh the lobster is. When dealing with live lobsters, asking behind our seafood counter is the only way of discovering their level of freshness.
If you want to know how fresh a cooked lobster is, look for shiny eyes, firm flesh, and a curled tail. A curled tail is the most telling sign, which indicates that the lobster was fresh when properly cooked.
