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.

It started just fine with a Wonderfull welcome And quick service. The food was excellent but what About paying 36 dollars for two glasses of whine? We felt really bad, we should have paid more attention but weren't expecting these proces at all. And the Wonderfull welcome turned out to Be an expensive one!

Our first meal of our mini-vacation was a great experience! It was a Tuesday night after the dinner crowd so it wasn't crowded and the atmosphere was very nice. Our server, Gary, was very knowledgeable and extremely friendly and personable. After a wonderfully prepared Ahi Tuna appetizer, he recommended the Corvina special which was also very good. A couple of... More

Four of us went last night (Dec 15) to Lobstah's and had an excellent meal. Since it was a Monday night and not yet quite in high season, there weren't many patrons and we got a table next to the fish tank which all four of us (all adults) thoroughly enjoyed. So I'd recommend asking for that table, as long... More

Nicelt decorated place in this "beachy" town......martini for $12.21???????? Salmon disnner very tasty, Linguini and clam portion small, and Calamari appetizer underdone. $142.00 for 3 dinner and drinks a little much. Our server, Rachael, personable and professional. High season beginning and new cooks apparently in training.

Our family vacation began with our first visit to Lobstah's, and we will be back. Lovely setting, great location, and excellent food. Our daughter tried clam chowder at every place we went on our trip and, hands down, Lobstah's was the best. The kids had a great time cracking open a whole lobster, and I had a great time sneaking...

When we booked our vacation to the island, I was really looking forward to Florida hospitality and some great seafood. Well, we got both at Lobstah's. The waitress couldn't have been friendlier, more knowledgable or accommodating. We had a 4 year old with us, so she immediately said, "Well, let me seat you by the fish tank because kids love...

My family enjoyed a nice dinner here during our week stay on Anna Maria Island. The warm lobster roll was delicious and linguine in clam sauce and caprese salad both very good. I was glad that we had made reservations. The atmosphere is fun with beach signs and a low key setting. Had an enjoyable evening and the server was... More

Our group visited Lobstahs recently and we thoroughly enjoyed it; from the food, to the atmosphere and service! Gary provided exceptional service, responding to every request of our table of ten even helping us further perfect the delicious espresso martini (add some Godiva liqueur and half and half)!
