I just got back from a trip to St. Kitts after going on my best friend's family vacation with him. We stayed for 7 nights and spent two nights eating at rock lobster it was that good. We were a group of 9 and everyone was able to find something they liked; vegetarians and carnivores alike! The place itself feels... More

Our first full night of vacation and we ended with dinner at Rock Lobster. Food is a little pricey but good. Service is great, very attentive and on top of things. It was off season so it wasn't crowded at all. Would most likely go back again.

We went here the first night and arrived late, they were so nice to serve us after 9:00. The lobster was delicious as well as all of the appetizers! Easy walking distance from the Marriott so this is great if you don't have a car.

Before I traveled to St Kitt's recently I was looking forward to dining at Rock Lobster. I took me 4 passes to finally see the sign which is very poorly displayed. I stopped and took a closer look, walked right inside to the building (which very dusty due to a nearby construction project) on to find it was closed with... More

Despite the name the Rock Lobster actually offers a wide range of cuisine. Steak was very good and significantly better than at the royal Grille Steakhouse at the Marriott just along the road. Also serves a range of seafood, the Fish (Grouper) and chips was excellent, service if friendly and efficient, only slight negative is that it is mostly open... More

While the reviews were mixed, I appreciated Shay's simple review. We were staying at the Marriott and didn't venture too far for food because we didn't want to pay a great deal in taxi fares. The food was good, and agreeing with Shay - the Calamari was awesome. But what we found to be outstanding was the service. Very attentive,... More

Based upon reading reviews our expectations were set high. Unfortunately Rock Lobster should have been called bland, overlooked lobster. The paella and the conch chowder had the same 2 qualities. For pricey entrees we expected the taste and quality to be better. However, we were happy with the ambiance, service, and presentation.

The food is really brilliant, even if you don't eat lobster! My only disappointment is that drinks everywhere on the island seem to come from the pump and I just don't like the taste! Despite that, the service was great and on my second visit I took my own can and there were no objections!

We both had the lobster dinners and it was fabulous. Excellent pear and walnut salad. We sat outside and enjoyed the evening weather. Bugs not a problem. Total bill with tip was just over $60. Again, an excellent dinner, thanks!
