Located in the heart of Holmes Beach, Lobstahs brings New England Style seafood to beautiful Anna Maria Island plus local seafood favorites. We take great pride in providing the freshest seafood. Our lobsters are flown in daily and we work with farmers and fishmongers to bring the best quality ingredients to our guests. Land lovers will find USDA steaks, chicken and pasta selections on our extensive menu. The largest cold water lobster tank on Anna Maria Island and the recipes created by Chef Patrick, have defined Lobstahs as a "destination restaurant" for diners from all over the world. Lobstahs is a "destination restaurant". Our extensive menus feature over 60 fresh and tantalizing items for all taste buds plus our kid's Lil Lobstahs Menu. Don't forget our daily specials too! Outdoor deck makes for a more open island dining experience. We can accommodate large tables and parties, catering, banquets and special events are our specialty. Planning to spend a day at the beach? Let us prepare an authentic Maine Lobster Bake for your family and friends. Whether you dine in or take away, the fare will always be excellent. Our catering department can handle your big events and catering needs with special attention. See our attached Sports Bar with large screen TVs. Pool, Shuffleboard and Darts.

We again had our annual dinner here with friends. I had salmon and my dining partner had grouper, and both meals were excellent. Fresh fish, ample portion and well prepared. The service was fine, allowing for the more leisurely pace of the place. But again, we had to shout to hold a... read more

I got a steak as they waiter talked me out of two lobster dished which i thought was odd. The steak was just ok. My husband... More

We had a wonderful lunch today at Lobstahs. The service was outstanding and the food was wonderful. I ordered lobster bisque and it was delightful! Full of lobster. Be careful because it is very filling! My husband had a lobster roll and he absolutely loved it! What a great meal and a fabulous time!

Meh, thought this was a tired and overated place that was relying on their location instead of their quality of food.

No seats at the bar and empty tables in the bar area-wouldn't you want paying customers? Manager accommodated us for Happy Hour drink prices but not food. We ordered lobster nachos to share between 4 people--on the small side and an OK dish. The outside is not an indication of the décor on the inside. Nice, well-lit atmosphere; seemed to... More

Arrived at Lobstah's at 6pm & expected a wait much longer than 2 min! We were treated so well from beginning to end. Server was top notch! Then the food arrived & every bite was excellent. I chose the grouper & my husband had the salmon. Will definitely return & highly recommend this great eatery!

We stopped in for Lobster Rolls and Lobster mac and cheese and really the serving was small with limited Lobster in both offerings. The mac and cheese had excellent flavor but was much smaller than the portions from one year ago. There were few people in the restaurant so this should have been a warning sign. The young lady who... More

Have enjoyed Lobstahs the last few years. Excellent food, drinks, and great wait staff. This year on our return to Lobstahs they no longer offer the "early bird specials". This we enjoyed as the portions were smaller and the price less. So instead of eating there several times as we have done in past years we now have found several... More
