Happy to have great lobster rolls

I had avoided this restaurant because I really didn't want New England seafood while on the Gulf. I gave in and boy am I glad. Started with some fabulous calamari and then I had a lobster roll. Took me back immediately to memories of my visits to the Connecticut coast almost 40 years ago. So... read more

We went to Lobstahs after hearing my cousin rave about the lobster rolls. My father started off with the lobster bisque which we all tasted and it was phenomenal and full of lobster. My sister and father both had the filet that they said was delicious and very well prepared. My mother and I had the melt in your mouth... More

We went to Lobstah's for lunch. The service was quite slow but food was great! We had the Peel & Eat Shrimp-good portion to share as an app. I had the Lobster which was cooked well and the corn was sweet. Finally the fish and chips were great, crispy and flavourful batter and flaky fish! The kids loved them:)

On a whim stopped into Lodstahs for dinner one evening while on Anna Maria Island, nice casual atmosphere, really wonderful service and good food on top of that. Wife loved the surf & turf.....everything was just right.
