Looking for the best lobster dinner in Toronto, but don't know where to start? We've complied a multitude of Toronto restaurants doling out some of the city's best lobster.
There are many reasons why living in Toronto is unparalleled to other cities, but being nowhere near an ocean is not one of them. Thankfully, it hasn't deterred the many seafood restaurants in the city from procuring fresh and sustainably caught products onto their menus.
Lobster is a versatile crustacean to cook -- from butter poached to boiled and even deep fried, the options go on. If you want a traditional east coast-style dinner from one of Toronto's seafood institutions, Rodney's Oyster House will pull your lobster straight from the tank, weigh it on the spot and cook it to tender perfection alongside crispy potato wedges.
Looking for something a little more unique? The Fishman Lobster Clubhouse's lobster tower is a gargantuan mile-high stack of deep-fried lobster and crispy garlic bits that is just as much a show as it is a meal.
Whole Atlantic lobster is always a highlight on a menu, usually accompanied by rich clarified butter, lemon and -- if you're lucky -- a fashionable plastic bib to ensure you can pick out every last morsel from those shells.
If you're saving this delicacy for a special night out, there are plenty of options in the city to indulge -- here are some of our favourites when it comes to Toronto's best lobster dinners.
