Lobster is one of the most romantic meals to eat on Valentine's Day — whether out at a restaurant or in the confines of your own home. While it's certainly a special treat, it can also be terrifying, especially for new couples just starting to date (it can get quite messy). How do you eat a lobster? Where do you crack it? Can you only eat the tail?

No worries. Valentine's Day dinner is only a few short hours away, but there's still plenty of time to learn how to eat a lobster before then. Click the play button after the jump to watch Food Network Kitchens break down a lobster and you'll soon be a pro (and your significant other will be very impressed).
