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 saw this restaurant when we first came to town, but did not go there until our last day. 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

Went to dinner because recommended by real estate group. The lobster nachos were fabulous. The lobster was cooked perfectly. The drinks were mixed well. The wait staff did forget my salad but was very apologetic and friendly.

We have seen the advertisement for over a year when we finally stopped in to eat. Incredible experience. The quality of the food was as if we were eating at a 5 star restaurant. The service was just as great and the atmosphere was incredibly laid back. We had a wonderful experience and will definitely be back.

Food was good. Had the grouper which was very good. Calamari so so. Lobster bisque very good. A little pricey but everywhere on the island is overpriced. Our waitress was great. One person in our party had the wahoo on special and was sick all night and was fine before dinner. Just fyi.

The lobster nachos were awesome. The lobster roll was awesome as well but a little on the small side. All in all great atmosphere and experience.
