While I liked the food, it was nothing to write home about or go back for. Was in a pinch as we discovered that the restaurant we wanted to go to was closed. Food was expensive - but what isn't on Anna Maria Island? 3 things that would cause me not to go back - the server was not at... More

One of the few places in our area that has real hard shell Maine lobster. Lovely dining establishment with professional staff. We both had a 2lb Maine lobster on our visit. We loved it!

We went to Lobstahs a few times during our stay this past December. The food was excellent and the service was prompt and attentive. On a few occasions we just ordered a bunch of starters and shared. This satisfied our appetite. They have happy hour drinks which is enjoyable with a few starters.

We have been to Lobstahs a few times in the last couple of years, and the last visit this past Christmas was the least favorite. The food seemed little less fresh than usual, the service was very slow, and it ended up costing more than some other (better) options on the island. My grilled salmon was way too salty (I... More

We ordered Lobster Nachos, calamari, kids cheeseburgers and soup with salad and salmon for the five of us. The waiter forgot to put an order for salmon, brought French fries instead of apple sauce, a hamburger without cheese. The service was slow although we didn't mind it that much if we had gotten our orders right. The food was ok,... More

My husband and I dined at Lobstah's a year ago and had a great experience. This year there were 4 adults and 5 children so we were curious as to how the meals would compare. Thank goodness for Open Table; we arrived a half hour early and our table, placed a bit away from the main bar area, was ready.... More

We went for a late lunch. Excellent service and food. The server was very attentive and there was several " regulars " which arrived as we were leaving. We will definitely be back
