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.

Cute little place to eat

Very cute little place with great food. Service is extremely slow so if you're in a hurry you may want to eat elsewhere.

Let me start by saying, the lobster bisque made this dining experience worth it. Skip the lobster roll and dessert. Neither are worth it. The sweet tea was diabetes in a glass. Glasses were consistently empty. Husband had a steak and enjoyed it. The worst part of our experience was the service. We were a party of 2 seated between... More

I really wish I liked this restaurant more, because some things they make and do are very good. But overall, the experience has been hit or miss, and they are quite proud of what they serve, and frankly, the quality isn't there. But being in a tourist heavy area, maybe it doesn't matter.

Oysters were delicious, bloody mary was a meal in itself! Had the fish and chips, it was good, friend had the library took and says it was great, maybe I should've done the same. Service is slow though, don't be in a hurry when you come here, it supports the laid back beach life protocols, flip flops and shorts are... More

While on vacation we were ready for seafood and this seemed like a good option and it is easy to find. Our server was attentive and knew the menu well. He had a great personality and we enjoyed his help with menu items. Everything was good and I would return to try more of extensive menu.

We went for lunch and had the wings and cheese sticks. Boy were those cheese sticks huge!!! Biggest that I have ever seen. The kids loved them. Hot wings were also tasty.

Don't get me wrong there was nothing bad about this restaurant but it is definitely one I could have lived without. The food was nothing overly exciting and was kind of over priced. Still good and I recommend it if you really like lobster.

My wife ordered a huge lobster, it came and it looked incredible. Unfortunately the appearance was only shell-deep, and aside from a rubbery tail the rest of the lobster was inedible. Our suspicions were raised when my toddler son asked our server to see the lobster tank (we'd been to many seafood restaurants in the States and the majority of... More

I'm sorry part of your lobster seemed rubbery. I assure you our lobsters are alive and not frozen before cooking. Our live lobsters are stored in a seaweed bed in a cooler as are most. The lobsyers arenot local from Gulf. We only use cold water lobster which are transported from Maine. The best of the best. Lobster tanks in... More
