How do you eat Lobster?

If you or your children are going out with an important person, I would suggest to order something less messy.  The restaurant also may offer a lazyman’s lobster which means, “shell off.”  Order this dish using a knife and fork to eat it.

When you are with friends and family, order anything you would like.  Sometimes you just don’t want to worry about being messy.  It’s called being off and taking it easy.

    Is it OK to eat it with fingers the whole way through even with friends and family? And cleaning hands with a lemon like Dad taught us?
