Unfortunately, we are now out of our $11.95 lobsters. We understand how frustrating this can be for seafood enthusiasts like yourself. Please understand that it is difficult for us to estimate festival attendance due to so many factors we cannot control. We increase our orders every year but due to the festival's popularity, it continues to grow beyond our expectations. We try our best to accommodate all our customers and ensure that everyone gets to take advantage of this amazing deal. Unfortunately, sometimes we run out sooner than expected.

We want to assure you that the Great Inland Seafood Festival is a total Seafood extravaganza that offers a variety of different seafood options all weekend long and lobsters are just a small part of the overall event experience. We are confident that you will find something else that you would enjoy just as much.

We value your patronage and hope that you will join us at the festival to discover all the other amazing seafood options that we have to offer. Once again, we apologize for any inconvenience caused and look forward to serving you soon.

I wasn't able to try every single thing, but the things that I did eat were absolutely delicious! The $10.95 Lobster was great and it was a fairly good size for the price! I suggest walking around and looking at everything and then deciding what you want to eat. There was a pretty good variety of different things out there. Definitely going back!

Great lobsters, tasty, and what a deal!

We love it, the music, the food. We invite more and more people every year. What can I say except we ate lobster, crab legs, shrimp and more shrimp, scallops, corn on the cob and of course the lobster Mac & cheese. Everyone in our group left full and happy! Can’t wait until next year!
