Visited here with friends and were pleasantly surprised by the good quality food available. Staff were attentive and the Lobster on the menu had great taste and great sides to compliment. Lobstah's had a great variety of cocktails to wet your appetite and great puddings to finish. All in all, a good find on Island Beach.

Have gone here for several years, regularly, have management problems, constant changeover of cooks/chefs and quality is unpredictable. Happy hour is a good value, but they change the hours very often, according to the number of patrons. No consistency, worried about them surviving when the snowbirds leave.

I have been hearing about this place for weeks. We made a reservation when we got there we were told the wait would be a little longer. Finally got seated at the joining bar at a tall table. Not ideal for a 2 year old. Food was ok at best. Didn't get a top for the kids cup had to... More

We stopped by Lobstah's for lunch while visiting Anna Maria island. Our server, Linda, and her trainee, Adam, were helpful, attentive and friendly. Adam had just had the lobster bisque (first day on the job) and recommended it. It didn't take too much to convince us. We each had a bowl of the bisque and shared an order of calamari.... More

Can't tell you about the inside of the restaurant as we never went in, we opted to sit outside 82f. Beautiful day. Service was excellent, and timely, food was fish and fries and coleslaw and a beer, All 1st. Class would definitely go there again.

I'm new to the area and was looking for a good family restaurant and a place to get a drink after work. Friends of mine decided to stop in on a Wednesday and found out there was a happy hour going on so we decided to have a drink before dinner. I was amazed at how well the pregnant bartender... More

Went here with a few friends after work. And went to the bar for some drinks. Megan was awesome, we didn't know what we wanted and she was so helpful. And right there every time. She held side conversation with us as well! Way to go Megan, we would go back again just for your service!

Our group, up to 15-20 couples go to Lobstahs Tiki Bar every Wednesday evening. Megan, the best bartender ever, takes great care of our entire group! She knows us all so well she anticipates our next drink and has it ready for us!! We love her and the venue! Kudos to Megan Schmitt!!
