Creamed spinach, red wine, just about any kind of potato.

A nice salad.

Corn on the cob.

I agree with Andy's suggestions too of course.

I don't think you can beat a good baked potato with that meal. You don't really want anything strongly seasoned to compete with the flavors of the steak and lobster.
You'll need a little green something...perhaps broccoli florets or asparagus spears braised in chicken broth.

The only side dishes I've ever served alongside lobster have been corn on the cob (obviously not in season now), tossed green salad, & shoestring french-fried potatoes (I like the Ore-Ida brand).
