Description: 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.

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

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

“Overpriced.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014 via mobile

Good food, just not THAT good. $32 for special, 3 scallops, green beans and 3/4 potato. Just not impressed. $17 for a dozen oysters?

“Great Ambiance + Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

I had my parents come down to visit me from up north and all they had in mind was to get some great seafood; I took them to Lobstahs and this place did not disappoint! Not only was the food great, the general atmosphere was really relaxing. Rachel, our server, was funny and knowledgeable and made fantastic recommendations. I am definitely a fan of this place-- you can't beat fresh food and a welcoming setting!

“Best Lobster Roll south of Red's in Maine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Folks in Maine may brag about having the best lobsters, but that is because they never ate at Lobstah's in Anna Maria Island. Our waiter/bartender Ryan was awesome. My only suggestion - make the roll bigger even if you have to charge me more - cause it is so good I want more.
