On the way between Saint John and Halifax we had our first lobster dinner of our trip through the maritimes.
It was at Butlands in Alma, NB, and it was excellent. The place itself is really a seafood store rather than a restaurant, and since it was raining we couldn't eat on the picnic tables outside (and there is no seating inside) so we ate in our car. Amazingly (and slightly unfortunately) the next day it didn't smell at all like lobster or fish.
They sell cooked lobster for $5-6 per pound, so we had a 5+ pound lobster for $31.75 (+$1 for almost a cup of garlic butter). It was great, the taste was very lobstery.
It wasn't easy but we finished it, and it was extremely delicious. I like the larger lobster a lot even though the tail is a bit tough because the legs etc have so much meat, it's really worth the effort. I'm not very good with bones or shells.
The plastic fork is in there for perspective. The box the lobster is served is a 24-can soft drink box.
