I had lobster ceviche and the chicken fajitas and my son had a bacon cheeseburger. My fajitas were just average my son said the burger was average as well. But the ceviche was the best I had while I was on the island.

Your experience at the Happy Lobster will likely depend on the day and time you visit. I visited the restaurant on two different occasions (over two different days) during a single trip. The first time, the food was well-prepared, fresh and tasty. The second time, the food was dry, old and poorly prepared. The wait staff demonstrates little care for... More

I ordered the grilled lobster plate! It was really good!! The coconut rice served with it was delicious. There were personal fans at each table that really kept us cool. Highly recommend!

Nice restaurant on Caye Caulker Main street. Food is good and price worthy, and the atmosphere is relaxed like everything else on the island.
