Ron and the staff were incredible hosts. From the moment our party of 10 walked through the door, we knew we had come to the right place. We had taken family pictures prior to our arrival, so everyone was really hungry, and it was late. Normally they were only open until 9, but Ron said "Not to worry, we'll take... More

We did not have a reservation, but that was no problem because the bar was wide open and we like to have a conversation with the bartender when eating! Great margaritas and the most original and delicious shrimp spring rolls, ever! My husband had fried shrimp. He was born and raised in Florida and he said they were the biggest... More

As soon as we arrived, we were pleasantly greeted by the hostess, who happily seated us for our 6:30 reservation. Gary, our waiter, was extremely prompt, with a great personality, as he displayed friendliness, honesty, as well as providing an excellent description of certain items on the menu. We ordered the New England Lobster roll, which was really fresh and... More

We arrived without a reservation, and they were really accommodating. A few of us got the Meaty Lobster Bisque, and it was really good. The main dishes were a hit or miss. My daughter got the Lobster Newburg, and it was ok. My niece got a garlic lobster dish, and that was really good. I got the butter lobster roll... More

I was expecting a little more from this place than what I experienced. We arrived at the dinner hour with the place only about half full, and we were seated in a booth adjacent to the bar. Table service was slow and inattentive. After looking over the menu, I opted for a cheeseburger with a side of coleslaw. When it... More

When we arrived to the restaurant at 6PM on today Sunday night, the owner or manager asked us if we had reservations. There were only five tables taken at the time and I immediately asked him if we really needed to have made a reservation. He just answered, "We'll see..." At that point, I wanted to leave...I mean really? There... More

Came into the restaurant, nobody was waiting to be seated, asked for a table for 11 and was asked if I had reservations, I said no and the host said it would be 1 1/2 hour wait. Not a single person was waiting to be seated and then he said he was not trying to be mean.

We were very pleased to celebrate the birthday of my bride (of 46+ years) with a excellent meal. The food was super as was the staff. We live on the Island so we will be returning many times.

When the former restaurant was purchased and name changed, we thought Lobstahs meant authentic New England food featuring big, juicy Maine lobsters. Not so. Not only is the name misleading but there's nothing about the place that you would call a memorable experience. The food is over priced and over rated. There are too many good restaurants on AMI to... More
