THE CRAB PLACE

The Crab Place motto pretty much sums it up "Maryland Seafood Delivered from our dock to your door." Greg Cain started The Crab Place in 1997 in Crisfield, Maryland. As the business grew more family members and others joined the team. The company began by selling and shipping fresh Maryland crab caught daily by local watermen and now offers a comprehensive seafood delivery website.

Despite the name, The Crab Place provides a plethora of fresh seafood options including live lobster, oysters, fresh fish, shrimp, breaded seafood and several crab varieties. We really liked the look of the website , the ease of use, the clear attractive pictures and the easy search maneuverability.

If you're looking for a gift at The Crab Place they mainly offer gift cards but you are easily able to make any selection and the check out process allows you to include a gift message.

The Crab Place says they offer the guaranteed lowest price on the web, when we compared their prices to several competitors we found they were a little on the high end. However, if you join their yearly VIP club for $49.00 the shipping costs drop in half making your total cost lower priced than most.

In the event you aren't satisfied as a result of product spoilage or a high mortality rate on live crabs, upon the shipments arrival, The Crab Place will replace free of charge.

In the end we really enjoyed the website including the layout, professionalism, pictures, check out process and ease in finding the information we were looking for. If live crabs are what you are after The Crab Place should probably be your first choice. But, we felt that without the VIP membership the prices were a little steep.

LOBSTERS ONLINE

Lobsters Online has been in business since 1997. Located in Cape Cod Maine Lobsters Online offers Live lobsters a nice selection of fresh fish, crab, shrimp, and prepared foods.

The Lobsters Online website is geared for the lobster lover with interesting information about the history behind these crustaceans and how to cook and eat a lobster properly. We found navigating Lobsters-Online easy to maneuver for most of the products and information we were looking for.

Unfortunately, when looking for other customers comments and experience with this company we found several disappointed with the size of the lobsters and unresolved shipping issues. The customer service department came up several times as a downside to this company.

The prices are right at Lobsters Online and were some of the cheapest we could find. Customers also receive a 5% discount with any purchase over $100.

If you are looking for a gift you will find seafood combo meals and gift certificates. A gift tag is available with any purchase at Lobsters Online.

We were excited about the products and prices at this company but hesitate in our confidence with them due to unfavorable reviews numerous customers reported.

Many people love the idea of fresh seafood delivered right to their door and ready to cook. Unfortunately for most people, finding quality seafood isn't easy. The few grocery stores that offer fresh seafood don't have much variety, and often charge high prices for what they do carry.

However, a growing number of people have found fresh seafood - including lobster, fish, shrimp, oysters, and more - from online seafood stores. With the internet, fresh seafood is only one click away from anyone wanting the best seafood delivered direct to their doorstep. Plus, many of these seafood stores offer excellent gift packages that are sure to impress seafood lovers.

Online seafood stores offer an excellent selection of the freshest and finest seafood. For those looking to buy seafood for themselves or as gift they should consider the following before making a purchase:

  • Selection. Can you anticipate a wide variety of fresh seafood, or does the company cater toward one particular seafood product? Do they offer seafood gift giving options?
  • Cost. Compared to the competition, how does the price and quality of the seafood compare?
  • Satisfaction Guarantee. If something goes wrong with your seafood delivery, will the company make every effort to satisfy you?
