The service was wonderful and the food was pretty average but good. There are plenty of options to choose from on the... More

We choose Lobstahs for dinner because it was a couple blocks from our rental house so we could walk there. We were seated in the Tiki bar - it has lots of TVs and several games to play while waiting on your food. The food was good and our server was very helpful. You don't get fresh main lobster in...

We had fresh lobster flown in from Maine, delicious Gulf shrimp,fresh corn on the cob (so sweet!) and green beans. Everything was fresh and delicious, and to top it off, we had to try the key lime pie. OMG! The best... More
