Located in the heart of Holmes Beach, Lobstahs brings New England Style seafood to beautiful Anna Maria Island plus local seafood favorites. We take great pride in providing the freshest seafood. Our lobsters are flown in daily and we work with farmers and fishmongers to bring the best quality ingredients to our guests. Land lovers will find USDA steaks, chicken and pasta selections on our extensive menu. The largest cold water lobster tank on Anna Maria Island and the recipes created by Chef Patrick, have defined Lobstahs as a "destination restaurant" for diners from all over the world. Lobstahs is a "destination restaurant". Our extensive menus feature over 60 fresh and tantalizing items for all taste buds plus our kid's Lil Lobstahs Menu. Don't forget our daily specials too! Outdoor deck makes for a more open island dining experience. We can accommodate large tables and parties, catering, banquets and special events are our specialty. Planning to spend a day at the beach? Let us prepare an authentic Maine Lobster Bake for your family and friends. Whether you dine in or take away, the fare will always be excellent.

Casual Lobster Nicely Done

Nice causal spot for a variety of lobster dishes and more. The cocktail menu was fun and our server was friendly and prompt. Definitely a place to try when in the neighborhood.

The nachos were awesome! Sweet and spicy with a creamy sauce. My family's appetizers were fantastic and their meals were great too. However, my fiancé and I got the fried shrimp, and while they were HUGE, they tasted like salt water and dirt. So that was very disappointing to me since our starters were so great.

Had a great experience at Lobstah's. Service was more than excellent - Gary was super friendly and attentive. We had the meaty lobster bisque (OMG!), lobster nachos (huge portion but so delicious), and the delmonico. It was cooked to perfection, had beautiful marbling and was very tender. We cleaned our plates! The ambiance was great as well; a little more... More

If you have kids and want to sit outside in the heat and receive poor service, then this is the place for you. My Partner and I went on a Thursday nite and it was quite slow.

Our host, Ryan, made our multiple visits over the last two weeks quite enjoyable. The food is excellent Oysters, Lobster Bisque with chunks of lobster added, chicken, steak, burgers, all great. Late evening fun with two pool tables, two dart boards, shuffle board, and music selections. Prices quite reasonable. Nice beach town ambiance.

We had very good service and really enjoyed the food. We had the grouper special, the steak special, a whole lobster and a lobster tail. Got to have lobster if you go to Lobstahs. Everyone said their meal was great. We topped it off with home made cheese cake and key lime pie. Will definitely go back.

Stopped in for a snack and beers while the ladies had their toes done. Dined on the "Butter Roll" which consisted of: 1.) Two rich butter rolls sliced in half, stuffed with, 2.) Rich, succulent Maine lobster. This was quite good, and washed down well with a couple of Red Stripe beers...

The food was great for the most part. The lobster nachos EXCELLENT. We got the grouper which was dry- I find this upsetting when you specialize in seafood. We had a 6pm reservation - arrived a few min early and they were rushing around to make a table for six. Our waitress was horrible. I mean the service was just... More
