Lazy Man's Lobster / Lobster Saute / Lobster Casserole

I LOVE lobster but hate the mess and fuss of dealing with a whole steamed lobster, while dining out... I know...I know... That's half the fun right? Anyway, I seem to remember a lot of restaurants on the Cape and elsewhere offering Lazy Man's Lobster: steamed lobster meat, de-shelled and served in drawn butter, often accompanied by toast points, or baked with breadcrumbs. Anyone know a good place still serving this decadent delight in the Boston area? Pleassssseeeee... I have a serious craving!!!

      Thanks! Totally forgot about L.O.'s as it would break my bank... Had a bite of a friends on his birthday and it was amazing!!! They add sherry and cream, which is always a good thing. :)

    2. It's not something you see on a menu very often, although for the life of me I don't know why. As much as I like lobster mac & cheese, a good lazy man lobster is even better. That said, Amrheins has it on their specials menu occasionally, so it may be worth a call. If you don't mind taking a ride to Salem, you can get it at the Witches Brew and I wouldn't be suprised if Finz had it on their menu.

        Great suggestions... I will see what I can find :)

          amrheims also does a lobster "pie" which is mostly just lobster meat under a little bit of crumbly topping

        2. A lot of places that offer boiled lobsters will serve lobster Lazy Man style upon request even if it is not on the menu, so it is worth asking (especially if you are willing to pay a few dollars more for the added labor).

            Yep. That has been my experience as well. Legal's and a few other places will take care of it for you.


          2. Lobster Pie at Belle Island Seafood in East Boston. It's a market/takeout place with stools at a counter. Closes at 7.

              Second Belle Isle. If you are looking for a lobster fix you can hardly do better.

            2. The hot lobster roll at Neptune. I often eat it with a fork and don't eat all of the roll. No mayo or fillers- just nice warm lobster and butter.
