Looks good, but it's overpriced and ordinary in most other ways, too. There are lots of of better choices and they're nearby.

Ordered take out one rainy evening. Our food was pretty average, nothing that warranted a recommendation. We waited in the bar for our order the staff and service were great. Would return to the bar and maybe a nosh at the bar sometime.

Visited Lobstah's for a drink whilst visiting AMI. We were greeted by Jess, a member of the bar team. She was extremely friendly and helpful. We decided to sit a the bar for a drink but stayed there and ate some very nice food as the atmosphere was great. Would definitely recommend Lobstah's to those visiting AMI

Fun, bar like atmosphere with bar game like shuffleboard. We were here during the off-season, so the long waits and overworked servers weren't an issue for us. We walked in and we're sat immediately. Cocktails are good, food was beach food, seafood and the like. It was good, I would say expensive for a restaurant on the beach-side. It's not... More

I really wanted to Eat he'd because I thought food would be great! The server was very tentative . He worked great with the kids and they have a kids menu which is a plus. Much better than the price we paid last night . My husband and i got the grouper sandwich and dad got tacos . The kids... More

We have tried this place five different times in hopes it would be a better experience than the last. Unfortunately, it disappoints each and every time. The food is weak. We do love the bar areas but every time we want a snack or small plate we are disappointed, even when we are drunk (which is saying something). Great sports... More

Two years ago we came for a Tuesday lobster special. We loved it. We sat in a trendy and pleasant front area of the building with modern decor and light woods. The special is no longer offered. This time, we were seated in the back in an odd room, maybe sports bar. It was like it was an enclosed back... More

Went here on our family vacation and had read some reviews about bad service but we hoped that since it was in the slower season it wouldn't be bad. But we were sadly mistaken. Our waitress only had two tables (there were only three in the whole place) and we couldn't keep our drinks filled at all. The food was... More

My sister, my husband, and I went to Lobstahs as a second choice since our first choice was closed for off season maintenance. We were greeted upon arrival and promptly seated. My sister and I agreed that the bar/dinin g area was quite pleasant. Our server greeted us with a rushed "Hi. How are ya? Be right with ya." We... More

Lobster Bisque gets 4.5 Stars. Lobster served many ways here. Good place to sit at or near bar and have a good meal and watch some sports. Bartenders friendly and food good. We will be back on next visit to the island!!
