Twin lobster dinners at Oyster House

Truth about lobster: it's pretty much a waste to eat it any other way than simply steamed and pulled directly out of its shell, with an optional swim in a ramekin of melted butter. The best way to do that without leaving Philadelphia is every Wednesday night at Oyster House, when two whole 1-lb. lobsters plus corn on the cob go for just $28. Add a Kenzinger shandy with house rosemary lemonade for $5 more and you're set for the night.

Where: Oyster House at 1516 Sansom Street

When: July 22, 2015 from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

How much: $28
