Description: 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.

This was our first visit to the restaurant although we have visited the Island for the past 12 years. We did not have a reservation but the host/hostess was extremely friendly and sat us immediately. Our waitress Rachael knew the menu and was very helpful in explaining items to us. The food was wonderful and the experience was very nice.... More

Having read other reviews on this restaurant, I would say they heeded the comments and have adjusted very well. We were a party of six on a Saturday, early evening, arriving for our reservation at 6pm. Being early in the evening, half the tables were seated. I counted 6 wait staff, obviously anticipating a busy evening. The service was prompt... More

We have eaten at Lobstah's countless times over the last three years, and have eaten there three times this month. The food is still excellent (they have the same chef, who knows his stuff!), but I want to talk about what happened the last time we were there this week. As always, we went around 4:30, in order to beat... More

Delighted to return to this non-expensive restaurant. Portions are good; fish fresh, and vegetables not mushy! We arrived with friends at 5:01 and only entitled to "happy hour" drinks, not ordering from the menu. Funny, last January, our waitress was very flexible in noting time. But, lots changes in one year! Our waitress, Rachel, was good, brought drinks and items... More

Looked for sports bar to get Big Ten Network. 2 of us happy with lobster dinner, lobster roll. 3rd diner had clams and linguine that were just okay. Service was great. Changed channel for us. Stayed entire game, no pressure to buy more. Would go back again.

Oh my gosh. My husband and I have been here four times in a week! It is absolutely delicious! The atmosphere is casual and unpretentious. The food is BY FAR the BEST! The lobster tails are so delicious and the veggies are amazing too! Great happy hour deals also. Our server, Rachael, was very friendly and knowledgeable about all items... More

Went because of the ratings. First and last visit. Food was good but the portions were terribly small. I am not big eater but I left hungry. I had the Grouper sandwich and it was 1/2 the size of other places in the area. My wife had the steamed clam and they were pathetically small. Most were about the size... More

We enjoyed our recent visit to Lobstahs expecting a casual dining experience, which it delivered. On arrival we were shown to a high table with barstool-type chairs. Whilst not ideal for a couple in their late 50s this arrangement didn't detract from the dining experience once we had settled ourselves in. The waitress accomodated my request to order a main,...
