According to a recent survey by Harris Interactive, men and women believe that a lobster dinner is the most romantic meal of all time!

valentines day lobster

The survey showed that most adults believe a lobster dinner is the number one most romantic meal. Nearly four out of 10 men (36 percent) and women (37 percent) think that it would be most romantic to get engaged over a lobster dinner, compared to about a quarter of men (25 percent) and women (22 percent) who think steak would set the most romantic tone. 

Men and women may disagree on many topics, but on this, they agree. They also believe that Valentine’s Day is the most romantic occasion for a marriage proposal. Over half of those surveyed answered that this is absolutely the most romantic occasion to propose marriage. And, get this, more men than women thought this was true.  Men (58%) are more likely than women (49%) to think that Valentine’s Day is the most romantic day to ask “Will you marry me?”

So, we wouldn’t tell you what to do – but, it would seem the numbers speak for themselves.

You may want to consider ordering a romantic lobster dinner from our Shipped Clambakes, and let nature take its course.

As far as we know, this was The Fresh Lobster's first visit to the Boston TD Banknorth Garden where he got to watch the Boston Celtics play the Phoenix Suns.

The Fresh Lobster was welcomed throughout the entire visit from the entrance at North Station, to the Beer Garden, the concession stands and especially in the souvenir shops.

Ralph, the usher, told us he would love to pose for a picture with The Fresh Lobster - but what he was really hoping for was a fresh New England clambake from B&M Catering !

Andy and Jay were visiting from Montreal.  For his birthday, Jay had received tickets to see Rajon Rondo and the Boston Celtics play at the Garden.  He and Andy took a bus down and had just finished a day of touring Boston on the Duck Tours before heading over to watch the game.

The Celtics beat the Suns that night.  But more importantly, The Fresh Lobster got to get close up and personal with Celtics heroes, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.

The great thing about being a caterer is that we get to bring clambakes, barbecues, pig roasts and just about every other kind of menu all over New England.  

thank you

One week, we are in Boston, serving up fun and food to students at UMass Boston.  Another week, we might be in Worcester, bringing a corporate luncheon to a deserving work crew.  Often, in the summer, we can be found on the beaches of Cape Cod or Newport with our grills and steamers, creating a unique wedding atmosphere.

We get the nicest cards and letters from our customers.  Every once in a while, its nice to check in to some of the online sites like Yelp, Google, Wedding Wire and more to see what else folks are saying about us.   Here are some of the shout-outs we found on those sites:


Here's one from Yelp:

YelpB&M rocks!  We hired them for a budget wedding in Narragansett, and were amazed by how friendly and thoughtful the staff was, especially Tim.  We were also amazed by how many of our guests told us that it was, quote, "the best food I've ever had at a wedding,ever."  The lobsters were very easy to open, and the staff was sure to give us extra lobster tails.  The clam cakes were amazing. We would hire them again for other catered events in a heartbeat.  ....They exceeded all of our expectations.  These people are PHENOMENAL - particularly given their exceedingly reasonable pricing.   -Nicole C.  Boston, MA

This one's from Wedding Wire:

wedding wire logoTim and Mickey from B&M Catering were wonderful to work with. We wanted something different for our wedding and chose B&M for our pig roast and bar services. The entire B&M team did a great job setting up the venue and making sure our guests were well fed. They even took care of assembling the Korean BBQ Sliders I had dropped off for cocktail hour. 

 EVERYONE loved the food and said it was the best pulled pork they have ever had. Tim even packed up all the leftovers at the end of the night for us. Thanks again for everything!   Elisa

And one more from Google Reviews:

google reviewB & M Catering catered a party for 100 guests located in Providence at Waterfires. The food was amazing, everyone loved the steak tips, swordfish and chicken. John hosted the bar and Rosina assisted in absolutely every way possible. Together they made our event seamless and wonderful. Several people made it a point of asking how we had found them and commenting on the terrific food and service. We will ALWAYS refer our family and friends to them without hesitation. You really can't do better!    - Kalee
