Who We Are

The Freshest Fish since 1975!

-   ABOUT US  -

Lobster Bin

Started in 1975 by John Tung, the Lobster Bin began as a fish truck outside Bonjourno's supermarket. Soon after, Lobster Bin's popularity would outgrow the truck, moving into its current location. Lobster Bin's dedication to serving its community the best seafood available has turned it into the local landmark it is today.

Even 45 years down the line, John still goes down to market himself to pick out fish for Lobster Bin.

Our Covid-19 Policy

We are going through tough times. The current pandemic has forced all of us to rethink how we do many of our everyday things. Your safety is our priority, and while we know fish really well, we've decided to leave it to the experts when it comes to COVID-19.

We, at Lobster Bin, have been following all the recommendations of the CDC regarding the virus. Our staff has been hard at work cleaning and disinfecting the store, keeping everything as pristine as can be. As well as maintaining the store clean, we are following all recommendations regarding Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), enforcing Connecticut's mask mandate, and encouraging social distancing while inside the store. We have been keeping ourselves informed, and are constantly looking for new, verified information to update our efforts. Lobster Bin thanks you for your efforts and together, we will get through these challenging times.
