Due to the location, this place seems like a popular place. We visited on a Monday night (after 8 PM) with a party of 8. While it was not busy, we still had a 20 minute wait. We found this to be more of a bar atmosphere than a fine dining establishment. The food was mediocre at best and the... More

We stopped in for a late dinner and didn't want a huge meal. I ordered the meaty lobster bisque and shared the lobster nachos. The bisque is a MUST have. Lobster nachos were great and it's a good portion to share. We'll be back.

Our weekly lunch group (Retired Old Men Eating Out - Spanish Main) ROMEO's found our our original destination in Holmes Beach was closed recently causing us to seek another venue. After a brief discussion, the 10 members present decided to try Lobstah's since it was located conveniently. The wait staff was very accommodating and efficient despite the busy lunch hour.... More

Went there twice. The food both times was very good with good selection of choices. First time we went the waitress was not good. In fact I left her a $0 tip, which I've never done before regardless of the service level. I and spoke with the manager. The manager apologized and offered free dessert. We went the second time...

The best and biggest and most reasonably priced. Like the menu says - tall. Minimal crust. Beautifully displayed.

We ate in the tiki bar because the restaurant was booked and we didn't have a reservation. Food was good, but small portions for the price. Our waitress was friendly enough, but not very attentive; she seemed distracted. Maybe service in the restaurant proper would have been better. Overall there are better restaurants to go to in the area.

this place is in the very downmarket looking shopping centre in Holmes Beach but you will be pleasantly surprised if you step inside as the decor and atmosphere are good. They major on Lobster but have a good selection of other dishes too. My husband had a filet mignon which was perfectly done. Service was great from Kyle who was... More

We really enjoyed our meals. There were 7 of us, including 3 children. The lobster nachos, lobster roll & grouper tacos were all delicious! The service was a little lacking though, but would definitely go back.

I had the lobster roll which was awesome; my husband had grouper and it was great too. Sit on the deck outside and enjoy the sun. Definitely a place to try when visiting Anna Maria.
