Fishman Lobster Clubhouse

Fishman Lobster Clubhouse

Upon entering, you notice 5 lbs lobsters in rubbermaid bins being paraded about the dining room, as large parties cheer in anticipation for a meal they will not soon forget. Fishman is a seafood empire in the city, cranking out fried lobster towers and Hong Kong-style crab to the Toronto masses. Tanks surround the entire perimeter of the banquet-style dining room, where patrons can ooh and aah at the unbelievably large crustaceans.
