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. Our catering department can handle your big events and catering needs with special attention. See our attached Sports Bar with large screen TVs. Pool, Shuffleboard and Darts.

We had waited to have one really nice meal on the island and it was terrible!! The atmosphere was horrible! The drinks were terrible and the lobster was over cooked!! With a name like " lobstahs" it should have been delicious if nothing else was!! And all we kept hearing from the couple next to us is that they should... More

My daughter and I ate at Lobstahs a few months ago when she came to Florida to visit me. We had a delightful time there. The food was delicious, and the service was great. At the moment, I can't remember the waiter's name, but I do remember that he was personable an efficient. We ate outside on the "patio/porch." It... More

My wife and 3 kids went here recently and loved the food. Although it is not on the water it is well worth the visit for the exceptional seafood.

Popped in as just around the corner from our villa.We just wanted some cocktails and a snack and they were more than happy to oblige us. Christina the bartender was very helpful and pleasant and soon sorted us out with some cocktails. As the wife had never had Lobster before I decided to introduce her to this by getting their...

Friendly and quick service. Nice interior restaurant and more upscale than I had anticipated. Children's menu, of course as always, is a plus. Fries are skinny, crispy and excellent. The mac n' cheese is richly decadent. We got the namesake Lobster Roll (not the mayo based one), per our server's recommendation, and it was very good. The roll was nicely... More

We stopped in for dinner one evening and it wasn't crowded so we were seated quickly as well as got our food fairly quickly. The food was great and so was the waiter.

We visited AMI in June, it was unseasonable hot. So, we escaped the heat by stopping by Lobstah's for Lobster Nachos and frozen drinks. They were by far the best nachos I have ever had. They had real cheese (not liquid processed faux cheese) melted on top of real lobster. The sirachi strawberry daquari had the perfect, hot/sweet combination. This... More

We visited this restaurant last August and LOVED it. We couldn't wait to return this year. Wow were we disappointed. Service was slow and food not even tasty. Apparently different manager?! Will not return. Will go to Ginny and Jane E's instead!

Food was average but met expectations. Oysters had no taste and for the first time I had to rely on sauces to get them down. The garlic lobster on the other hand was quite good but the sides were lacking flavour too. The kids however had a good time and enjoyed the huge fish tank in the back.
