What happened to Brown's Lobster Pound in Seabrook?

oceans | Aug 2, 2009 11:43 AM

My friends and I have been enjoying Brown's Lobster Pound in Seabrook, NH, for close to 50 years now. I get back as often as I can, at least once a year, and have steamers, lobster, and onion rings. I was there twice this year. In April, the lobster had a band on it indicating it was from Canada. It definitely was not as good as the lobster I used to have at Brown's. I returned again last week, July 2009. This time, I requested a Maine lobster. The first one they got out for me said Canada. Then, they got me another one that had a band that said nothing on it. I am not sure where that lobster was from, but it was not very good. It was not sweet like a Maine lobster and was rather tough. So, after 50 years, Brown's has disappointed me twice in a row. Do they have a new lobster supplier? Has anything else changed there? We were able to get wonderful lobsters in southern Maine, so I know they were available.
