July 22

There’s something about outdoor sporting events in the summer that just naturally go great with the delicious flavors of our LobsterCraft lobster rolls!  The LobsterCraft Food Truck returns to the beautiful grounds of the Greenwich Polo Club for the Silver Cup Finals on Sunday, July 22.

July 22, 2018

Greenwich Polo Club Public Match – Silver Cup Final

Gates open at 1pm and we’re there until 5pm unless we sell out, which does happen on occasions at these events!  So what were saying is swing by the truck early, get your favorite lobster roll from us, and then stomp some divots knowing that you’ve gotten your fill of lobster roll!

These are incredible events and if you’ve never experienced polo, the Greenwich Polo Club is a superb venue for the sport.  Check out their website for more details on tickets and VIP packages.  It’s a great way to spend a summer afternoon.  Tickets available through this link:

Check back here on our website or follow us on Facebook to see where the truck will be for its public appearances.  Remember, if you don’t feel like chasing the truck (we know it’s exhausting running after a moving truck), come visit Captain Mike and the crew at our Fairfield Kitchen location.  We’re open Tuesday – Saturday from 11am – 8pm and Sunday’s from 11am – 3pm.  Call us at (203)292-5350 if you need directions or if you want to order in advance.  For Fairfield residents, remember that GrubHub is our delivery service!

We’ve got all the great, award winning lobster rolls, lobster mac n’ cheese, lobster bisque, clam chowder, and fries. Throughout Spring and Summer, we’ll be featuring specials such as our take on the cold lobster roll, which we call the Dirty Maynard, a lobster salad, lobster tacos, and a cold shrimp roll. We’ll post up what we’re doing on Facebook and Instragram, so if you’re not following us, please do so!

Book the Truck: Answers to Frequently Asked Catering Questions

By | Food for thought | No Comments

LobsterCraft enjoys creating a memorable impact for your guests while making it as easy as possible for you.   See below for answers to our top catering questions.

Can’t find the answer to your question?  Please send us an email through our Contact Us page and we will get right back to you!

What is the difference between Drop Off and Full-Service Catering?

Drop Off means LobsterCraft will arrive at a specific time, prepare the rolls, drop them off and then walk away.  Rolls are placed on large serving trays, which can be used by your serving teams.  We also offer our Lobster Bisque and Lobster Mac and Cheese.  

Full-Service Catering means LobsterCraft will give your guests the full food truck experience.  We prepare the rolls and sides on demand then serve them out of the truck so no additional servers are required.

Generally speaking, full service is required for more than 25 guests.

How are rolls served to my guests?

Depending on the type of catering service (see above), our rolls are typically handed out one-at-a-time in “boats” (inside open disposable containers) or they are placed together on large serving trays.  We can work with you to create a more personalized presentation (i.e., logos, labels, etc.).  Please ask about this when you book your reservation.

Which rolls are included?

LobsterCraft has an award-winning menu of innovative, hand-crafted lobster rolls.  We are happy to serve the entire LobsterCraft menu (all 5 rolls) or provide a smaller choice to guests.  Please ask us about our popular side dishes as well: LobsterCraft Mac and Cheese, Lobster Bisque, and more!

How much time will LobsterCraft need?

When you book the truck, please select the time you want to start feeding guests.  The booking tool will hold the correct amount of time based on the event type you request.  LobsterCraft typically needs 2.5—3 hours of serving time.  This includes set up, serve time and clean up.   Drop Off Catering requires only 30 minutes.

Is LobsterCraft available for my event?  If so, how do I book the truck?

Here are the step-by-step instructions to book LobsterCraft for your event:

  1. Visit http://www.lobstercraft.com/catering
  2. Select Book Now next to your desired service type (Full-Service or Drop Off)
  3. Select your preferred date and start time of the event
  4. Enter your contact information and any event details/special requests, then select Book Appointment
  5. LobsterCraft will review your information and will reach out to finalize event details and pricing

If the time you desire is not visible, please try another date or time.

How much does it cost to have LobsterCraft cater my next event?

Pricing is based largely on the number of guests, travel time from South Norwalk, and the menu items you wish to serve.  For reference, Drop Off catering generally starts at $675 and Full-Service starts at $1,800 plus tax and gratuity.  Please book the truck and we will work with you to finalize the price.

Is a Deposit Required?  Will it be refunded if I cancel my event?

Once your event details and costs are discussed, LobsterCraft will send a contract for review.  In order fully commit the truck for your event, a deposit payment and contract approval are required.

Deposit refunds are provided assuming you provide written notice at least one week prior to the event. Generally speaking, if a cancellation is requested less than one week prior to the event, a deposit cannot be refunded.

What happens if the weather isn’t good?

Don’t worry!  LobsterCraft is able to serve in all weather types–and we are mobile!  If you need to relocate the event to accommodate your guests, let’s discuss.
