From our saltwater tank filled with live Maine Lobster to a full display of fresh fish & shellfish – you will find more seafood variety at Colonial than anywhere else on the Shoreline.  Our buyers seek out the very best from local waters and work with a number of New England vendors to bring our customers variety that includes Cod, Salmon, Tilapia, Swordfish, Mahi-Mahi and more, plus lots of shellfish including oysters, clams, shrimp and King Crab Legs.
