If they have been out of the sea for more than a few days they are already changing in flavor as they are eating their own fat rather than eating as they would naturally. Imagine 100% lean beef...yuck.

If you have ever been up in the NE, ME or MA specifically, and been to a lobster pound you know the taste of fresh lobster. Many I visited when up there boil the lobster and any other items you order in salt water right off the docks. Unless lobster is flying off the shelf, lobster in seafood restaurant tanks aren't fresh, believe me. They are handcuffed and merely alive.
The big ones don't really taste good either; I like them between 1-1.5 lbs.

We have a local place that sells lobster rolls, they are tasty but expensive. The family that owns it is from Maine or nearby. I mean they must right, because they all wear Red Sox hats.

Anyhow I wouldn't eat 'fast food' lobster because I expect it to be lobbster or crabb like they sell prepackaged in grocers. (some fish blend with tilapia or cod).

You're paying a lot of $$$ for bread, and it's not very filling, IMO.
Well, it's really not "fake food;" imitation crab, etc. is just fish, usually. It's not crab, etc., but it is seafood.

Not that I eat seafood, myself.

Red Lobster is another place with great photographs of their food, A few years ago they had something called 30 shrimp any way you like, what came to the table on a plate the size of a teacup saucer .was 30 shrimp that were so small i would have called them krill.
Their lobsters are also a special breed of midgets and in no way live up to expectations one derives from their advertizing pics.

What you get for $12 if you go buy 2 lobsters and do it yourself.=

The extra $2 went toward that $8 bottle of wine..

OK, I tried the Subway lobster special.

You really don't get much lobster meat... you get the same amount of meat as you get when you order the chopped beef.

Now, I've eaten lobster rolls, excellent ones (Ozzie's in St. George, New Brunswick, makes the world's best!). The problem with trying to turn a Subway sandwich into a lobster roll is complicated... too much bread, too little lobster, and you're left with lettuce, mayo and salt and pepper to try to make a lobster roll.

It doesn't work well. It isn't like a standard Subway sandwich, where you can add cheese and peppers and such to load it up. It doesn't even stack up well to the McLobster... which is like an appetizer compared to a decent lobster roll.
