ABOUT THE LOBSTER MAN
Capturing shellfish and the hearts of locals since 1977.
Nestled away in an industrial warehouse, steps from the marina, you will find The Lobster Man - one of the original tenants of the vibrant community of artisan vendors on Granville Island. They have been Vancouver’s premier destination for sustainable, quality shellfish for over 40 years and their live tanks are a must-see if you are ever in the neighborhood. The Lobster Man predominantly sources products from within a 100-mile radius, and takes great pride in working directly with Canadian fishermen to provide seafood of the highest quality.
Feast your eyes on live lobster, crab, oysters, clams, mussels and a large variety of other shellfish before selecting a few for a feast your belly will never forget! They even offer a service to cook your chosen crustacean on site in their big steamer pots, at no extra charge! Their boiling pots are waiting for their next offering from the sea until 4:30pm every day, so plan an epic outing, complete with a seaside picnic, and be sure to include delicacies from The Lobster Man!
