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.

We came here for a $20 lobster dinner. The food was well prepared and tasty. The service was fair. We didn't get the attention I felt would be adequate, we had to wait for drink refills. I would rate this as an average place to go. We did go back later in the week to get another cheap lobster. It... More

Had the lobster bisque soup to start-phenomenal! My husband had a lobster dish with a side of vegetables and potatoes and he thought it all was amazing...specifically the potatoes and veggies. He said he thought the dish itself tasted similar to the lobster bisque soup but it was still very very good. I had the peel and eat shrimp which... More

The Anna Marie Seafood is very good, highly recommend at 4pm I paid 1.88 for a glass of Yuengling! Service was great and food was prepared fairly quickly, although we were there off season. Nothing negative to say.

Driven past this little gem many times but never stopped in. Until last night. This is a great spot for an excellent meal. And it looks nothing like a Jersey shore restaurant inside (I'm from NJ) and I disagree with one of the previous reviews. Thus is a cute little restaurant with an energetic atmosphere. Dolphins hanging from the ceiling... More

You can't rely on the previous negative reviews for this restaurant -- My husband and I went there tonight and met up with the best waiter in the world, Gary, who was most knowledgeable about the many unique entrees -- he also sings for you table side reminiscence of being on a gondola in Venice -- Having vacationed in Maine...

Just wanted to write a quick note on the restaurant as we just were on the island for 10 days. This was the worst meal we ate during the entire trip and I was not happy especially since it was my choice that day ( selected by way of tripadvisor ). First the server tried to sit us in the... More

My sister and myself vacationed on Holmes Beach this past week and ate our '"mutual birthday dinner" at LOBSTAHS and it was divine. The head waiter Gary is the nicest and most knowledgable gentleman. From the Miami Vice to the excelllant hog head grouper we had the most wonderful meal. Thank you soooo much, planning to return!
