Hancock Gourmet Lobster Co Seafood Review

See ALL of our Seafood Reviews

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.

HANCOCK GOURMET LOBSTER CO

Hancock Gourmet Lobster Company was founded by Cal Hancock in 2000 on the premise to make lobster more accessible for eating at home. Located in Maine the company creates gourmet Maine lobster and seafood products that are all-natural without preservatives.

Outside of live lobster product, most of the food at Hancock are prepared meals. Those include award willing lobster macaroni and cheese, New England clambake, oyster stew and lobster pot pies. They also offer crab cakes and lobster hors d'oeuvre for party appetizers, soups, lobster tails, desserts and more. The website offers a nice layout with great pictures of the products and an easy check out process. If you are looking for fresh raw seafood you will find very little at Hancock's but if you are looking for delicious prepared seafood items this is a great place to shop.

Gift giving is a focus at Hancock Gourmet Lobster Co and they offer fun items like dinners for two, sampler platters, gift bags, lobster flavored dog treats and more. You may also choose a gift card and a gift message may be sent with any order.

Most of this prepared food is not inexpensive and adds up especially if you are feeding several guests. The product and shipping prices are inline with other providers of prepared seafood products and didn't stand out either way. The fact that they use lobster in many of their dishes pushes up the prices so be prepared to bring your wallet when shopping.

In the event that something goes wrong with your order Hancock takes a pretty firm stance that they don't accept returns but will definitely discuss the situation with you.

Hancock Gourmet Lobster Company is a great place to shop for delicious prepared seafood appetizers, meals and more. They've received positive press for their delicious food and have appeared on Oprah and in several magazines. But, bring your big credit card with you and be prepared to shop elsewhere if you'[re looking for fresh raw seafood - that's not their specialty.
