Victorinox Swiss Army Fall Warehouse Sale:  November 16 and 17

November Event – Victorinox

We love working with the great folks up at Victorinox because hey, we’ve always been big fans of the iconic Swiss Army Knife but they also make all sorts of other cool stuff from clothes to watches to luggage.  Steve our COO swears by their roll on travel case given his former years as a global marketing guy.  His current Victorinox case has nearly 5 million air miles on it and it’s still going strong!  We’ll be bringing the LobsterCraft Food Truck up to the warehouse sale on the Friday from 11am – 7pm and Saturday from 11am – 4pm so that the sale shoppers can stay well fed while they get some incredible deals!  The Victorinox Fall Warehouse Sale runs Thursday through Sunday.  Check out their Facebook page for more information: Victorinox Fall Sale Facebook Event Page

September News

Hi Folks,

It’s been a wonderfully busy summer for LobsterCraft both with the permanent location in Fairfield which is open Tuesday through Saturday 11am to 8pm and Sunday’s 11am to 3pm, and with all of the private parties, corporate catering, and special events we’ve done with the LobsterCraft Food Truck.  We are truly grateful to have so many loyal customers and to have met so many new ones!

Fairfield Location Hours.
A lot people are asking us when we’re shutting down for the season.  Strange question as we’re open year round!  Also, rumor has it that pirate themed temporary tattoos are back for your little pirates…  Or hey, if you want one for yourself, no one here is going to stop you.

Booking the truck
We’re seeing people already book the truck for 2019 and we’re booking events in late October-December now.  If you want to have the truck for your fall party or holiday party, now would be a great time to either send us an email at  Contact LobsterCraft or call us at (203)292-5350.  We’ll happily customize a menu for your from our extended catering menu that will help you create a truly special and unique event!

Menu Updates!!!

Some great new items on the menu in Fairfield!

The Land Lubber is our 12 hour hickory and cherry wood smoked pulled pork served on our signature toasted roll.  “Wow” “Spectacular” “Who knew a lobster place could make such awesome BBQ” are some of the comments we’ve heard from the folks that have tried it.  It’s been a favorite on our catering menu for a few years, so it was time to get it up and running at the shop.  Now when you suggest LobsterCraft to your co-worker or family member that doesn’t or can’t eat lobster, we’ve got an option for them to order as well.

Who likes dessert?  We do!  Introducing our very own LobsterCraft Lemon Moon Pie.  Perfect size, right balance of tart and sweet.  It’s a great way to finish off your meal.  The same local bakery that makes our signature rolls has done these for us, and they’re mouth waveringly good!
