SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - DECEMBER 24: Rock lobsters are displayed as crowds gather for last minute shopping before Christmas at the Sydney Fish Market on December 24, 2015 in Sydney, Australia. The Sydney Fish Markets experience its busiest trade over the Christmas week including the 36 hour marathon from 5am on the 23rd December until 5pm Christmas Eve.

You can’t deny the scrumptious taste of a boiled lobster dipped in butter.

We’re drooling over here! If that’s now how you do it, then you’re not celebrating National Lobster Day properly.

Lobster is one of those foods we just don’t get to enjoy often. Why? Because it’s one of the most expensive foods in the world.

National Lobster Day is observed annually on June 15th. Celebrate today by going out with friends and family to your favorite seafood restaurant and ordering a delicious lobster meal. Or stay at home to cook your own Mr. lobster recipe!

Here are some of the top restaurants in and around Charlotte to indulge in your lobster or other preferred seafood options. Just be prepared, your wallet might be crying by the end of the night!
