Just wanted to write a quick note on the restaurant as we just were on the island for 10 days. This was the worst meal we ate during the entire trip and I was not happy especially since it was my choice that day ( selected by way of tripadvisor ). First the server tried to sit us in the... More

My sister and myself vacationed on Holmes Beach this past week and ate our '"mutual birthday dinner" at LOBSTAHS and it was divine. The head waiter Gary is the nicest and most knowledgable gentleman. From the Miami Vice to the excelllant hog head grouper we had the most wonderful meal. Thank you soooo much, planning to return!

We were a group of six, two couples and 2 10 year olds. This restaurant has a fun atmosphere, but it reminded me of the Jersey shore. This is not a knock on the Jersey shore, but it wasn't as laid back as I expected an AMI restaurant to be. Our server was very attentive and was happy to split... More

We have just made our January reservation for Anna Maria, and found a place that was two blocks from LOBSTAHS!!!! The last night we were here earlier this year, the manager made us feel like we were royalty. Hope you're still there Ron! We'll be there at least once a week starting January 3! This place is really that good.... More

Visited Lobstahs after almost two years. Restaurant was fairly empty so service was prompt and consistent throughout the meal. I ordered the lobster tail while my friend ordered the 2 lb lobster. The lobster tail arrived with the vegetable of the day and red potatoes. It was slightly over cooked (tough) and a fairly small tail (I would guess about... More

Our girls group stopped in for lunch, this place was great! It was not busy when we stopped in so the bartender was our server. Her drinks were great (frozen piña coladas and strawberry daiquiris). Two of the girls got the buffalo chicken sandwich and said it was excellent. Another got the lobstah bisque, which was a bit salty, but... More

Had our first meal here on our first night. Pleasant enough inside, staff very nice. Lobster roll was gorgeous but those fries, they are so small you can't even get them on your fork. They were like chip sticks, very tiny thin ones. Rather pricey for what we got and had to wait a while for drinks. Other than that... More

The service by the friendly staff was excellent! Rachael, our server, was very attentive and quite knowledgeable on the food and wine. She even got my wife to like wine after a couple different samplings! The meaty lobster bisque was fantastic and our Delmonico steaks were melt in your mouth delicious. We even had Rachael make reservations for us to... More
