How Many Lobsters Do You Need for Lobster Rolls?

Lobster Information and TipsPicture this: It’s Friday night, and you’ve decided to have some friends over for dinner. You’re making lobster rolls—great choice! However, there’s just one hitch. You have no idea how many lobsters to buy! You don’t want anyone to leave hungry, but you also don’t want to leave delectable lobster untouched on anyone’s plate because there was just too much food.

At Cape Porpoise Lobster Co., we make things really simple for you with our handy lobster calculator.

If you’re making a lobster roll just for yourself, all you need is a half-pound of lobster to make our easy, delicious lobster roll recipe. Knowing how much you need for one lobster roll makes it so easy to multiply. Dinner for two? Get one pound of lobster. A lobster roll feast for 10? Five pounds should do it.

Want to save a few bucks? It’s a great idea to purchase freshly cooked lobster meat without the shells if you’re making lobster rolls, or another cooked recipe like lobster scampi. If you’re eating whole lobster, the general rule is one lobster per person, taking into account that different people might have larger or smaller appetites. An average eater would enjoy a lobster weighing around two pounds.
