From the moment that Gary introduced himself, we knew were in for a great dinner. The food was excellent -- great calamari, wonderful lobster tail and garlic lobster over linguini. Gary was knowledgeable, gracious and anticipated our needs. He outdid himself by singing us an Italian aria. We will return for sure.

Having been disappointed by the standard of food at several island restaurants lobsters proved to be a revelation. 6 of us had a variety of starters and mains all of which were excellent and the service was just as good.

After reading nearly every menu on AMI I only wanted to go to Lostahs. We had my sister in law joins us so we could share menu items. Our waitress was a gem, but I do not recall her name. It was her 3rd day working there.
We were served a basket of garlic baguettes with roasted garlic oil for dipping, what a way to start!
Our meals arrived and the smells were amazing. My husband had a cheese burger, my sister in law, lobster mac and cheese, me a single tail dinner. All were delightful. The mac and cheese was the best!
The decor of Lobstahs was nautical, yet plain. Very refreshing. We sat by the front window on padded window seats with pillows and so comfy!
This is a definite stop on AIM!

This was the first time our party of 6 adults ever ate here. It was a Friday night and they were really busy in the dining room, so we ate (same menu) in the Tiki lounge which was nice and quiet. We had the shuffle board table and games all to ourselves to play before and after dinner, which was great for us.

My daughter and I had the "meaty" lobster bisque ($14 a bowl!), which was good, but I've had much better. It was kind of salty to me. We also got the lobster tails, and I started to eat mine but it was not cooked enough - it was soft and floppy and not white but pink. I was afraid I was going to get sick if I ate more of it. I asked if they could cook it more for me, and they were nice enough to cook me another one - which I really didn't expect and it took awhile of course. It was much better but not the best I've had. They apologized about the first one. The rest of the party enjoyed their food OK, no complaints but no raves either.

The waitress was nice and provided good service.

Thank Chris C
