Worth the trip - A Special Place on Anna Maria Island

We first were attracted to Lobstahs, in September 2014 because my husband hails from Massachusetts. The pun with the name - (if you are from Massachusetts you say Lobstah -not Lobster) drew us to this fabulous seaside establishment. But it has been the friendly environment, the personalized... read more

Food was great, drinks excellent, and service (ask for Gary if you want great service and want to be serenaded as well) was wonderful. We had a VERY nice evening.

That wasn't the first time at Lobstahs for dinner. Actually, we like to come here, every time we are visiting AMI, at least once. Today, the service and even the kitchen failed completely for the first time we ate here. We ordered 2 surf&turf, one steak, one 2 pound Lobster. Both surf& turf we ordered with a medium-rare filet mignon... More

Don't trust reservations made on OpenTable. I received a confirmation email, but after looking at reviews on TA saw that others had trouble with their OpenTable reservations. I called and left a message asking to confirm the reservation and to call if there was a problem. Of course when we arrived they didn't have a reservation for us at all.... More

Insulting! I went to this restaurant with my elderly parents and were shown to a raised booth in what I think is their "tiki room" which is full of video games, ping pong table?, and loud music. My mother was offended by the lyrics of the music they were playing. We asked for another table in the main part of... More

This place is sad. Worst managed restaurant I've been to in a looooong time. Wasted 2.5 hours of a perfectly good night. Will not go back. Hostess was bad, waitstaff bad, and manager was trying to micromanage every little thing which she did poorly.

We went out with a group of 6 to celebrate the end of "Snowbird Season", now that the traffic is returning to normal! This was my first visit to LOBSTAHS, although my friends have been there many times. I found it to have a very welcoming hostess, and a great server, Rachael, we were in the mood for a little...

We showed up at 8:15pm with our three daughters--hungry after a day of exploring Anna Maria and thought we'd try Lobstahs as it was always buzzing when we passed. We thought we were in luck as for once there was no queue outside, and we're looking forward to nice juicy steaks and friendly service. However, we were told by the... More
