All you can eat lobsters remind me of a job i once had at a seafood company where in the mornings i'd saw frozen lobsters in half and put them in boxes 45lbs to the box,then in the afternoon i'd load up about 20 boxes and deliver them to restaurants along the beach,,my trick was to overload 4-6 boxes by one lobster then stop by the house on my route and take out those extra lobsters and the room mates and i had lobsters and beans for supper for many months, looking back on the venture it wasnt very ethical but i was young and stupid....

The lobsters we just had were great and were accompanied with corn on the cob,boiled new potatoes,Greek salad and white wine, i've boiled the remaining carcasses and the resultant broth is going to be the base for tonights seafood chowder..
Thanks for all the suggestions.

Bread. A paper plate.

That's about it.

If it is good crusty sour dough bread warmed a bit in the over with some real butter, I could go along with this

So who likes the "green" stuff? (aka Tomalley aka liver/pancreas) I like it if it is firm and not runny. Supposedly toxins like PCB and for Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning concentrate there though...

Asparagus, salad and a bottle of wine are good choices.

Coleslaw, fruit salad, potato salad... some good choices for vegetable side dishes are root vegetables, fiddle heads, string beans, peas.

Don't forget lots of napkins...

That's unamerican. And definitely unConnecticutan.

No, it has to be a hot-dog bun. Grilled. And the lobster needs to come out of a crockpot where it's been kept warm in melted butter.

Served on a plate. Fries optional but entirely unnecessary.

Un-American! -- What! You must be jesting!

Wasn't sourdough invented in San Francisco?

Not fond of that. I don't like the pasty texture.

If you don't mind me asking, where exactly is "here"?
