“Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

We were very curious about this interestingly titled restaurant. The restaurant was full when we went and we were sat at a high top table which was fine. I had the special scallops which were almost melt in your mouth. My husband had the salmon which was a little dry but tasted good. Loved the veggies and potato with the meals. The next time we visit the island we will certainly go back again.

“Good Restaurant and Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

We enjoyed our meal at Lobstahs. There was friendly service and the food was good. It is fairly expensive for what it is but there are not that many choices for restaurants with a full seafood menu. It is an OK choice but nothing special.

“Better Options”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Don't limit yourself with this restaurant. The lobster bisque soup was only mediocre and the dinner salad was blah. Unless you are looking for convenience, try somewhere else.

“Really Disappointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

My husband and I were so excited by the reviews we read about Lobstahs, but when we arrived, we found the service slow. We were right next to the bar, ordered two glasses of the house wine and that took 15 minutes to arrive. Our appetizers followed a bit later, but it took over 40 minutes to get our entree. When my "fresh" lobster finally arrived, it tasted as if it had been frozen and heated up. It took a few more minutes for my side dishes, but my husband's dinner arrived "cold". Finally, when our bill came, we had been charged top shelf price for the house wine. It took twenty minutes for the bill to be changed. The manger was apologetic, the waitress gave her best, but this establishment does not have their act together and they definitely did not serve us fresh lobstah.

“Good Eats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Good food, good staff, good prices....I'm not a seafood guru but the Anna Maria pasta and maple salmon were both really good.
