Alexander Keith's Lobster Boil 2022 at Rodney’s Oyster House

Head down to Rodney’s Oyster House on Thursday, May 26th for the annual Maritime Lobster Boil

Hosted by Alexander Keith’s, your ticket includes a welcome pint (of yours truly), a 1.25 lb Atlantic lobster (flown in LIVE), corn on the cob, potato salad, and the Chef’s house-made lime pie!

Your lobster is boiled in-house with Rodney’s specialty mirepoix and Rodney’s crew will crack your lobster for you. All you have to do is bring an empty stomach. 

Enjoy live music, great company, and the sweet (if not salty) feeling of messy, buttery hands! 

Tickets include tax and gratuity. Purchase yours today!
