This restaurant offers a very simple seating at the beachfront. They offers live lobsters with high quality and some good quality wines. They also have some cool live music.

Impressed that on arrival our request for a table on the decking near the band was honoured, by Cheryl even though this meant moving a large party including a well known celebrity resident on the island! The lobster was unbelievably good, both hot, cold and as a salad. We enjoyed the Jazz which added much atmosphere to the meal. The... More

Today was my sister-in-law's birthday and she loves lobster. So, we made reservations at Lobster Alive to celebrate. Two of us had the lobster, two had the catch of the day, and two had lobster bisque/appetizer and salad. We all enjoyed our food except one catch of the day seemed to be a bit under-cooked. The Rum punches and Pina... More

By far the best tasting lobster on the island! Beautiful atmosphere on the beach. Fresh vegetables with the tenderest lobster, melts in your mouth.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Lobster Alive. Our family of four was seated by the beach in this cozy restaurant.Although a bit pricey, The lobster was prepared perfectly and was delicious. I actually wanted to go back again for another lobster but we had run out of time. This is a great venue with great food! Enjoy!

We visited this restaurant before, so this time we booked for an early dinner and sat right on the deck by the beach, but you can also dine on the sand. Great lobster Thermidor, not cheap but great atmosphere and food. They have live jazz several nights a week

We visit every time we are on the island. We have made Lobster Alive our new tradition for Thanksgiving. We have spent the last 5 here with them. I can tell you that the fresh grilled lobster and creamy pina coladas beat turkey and stuffing any day! Do go when they have jazz, as it really makes for a fun... More

OK first visit, but the second visit.... Good food (one good lobster thermidor, one undercooked small lobster, two good lobsters) and very indifferent service! Pretty, very scatty waitress that got nearly everything wrong, was slow and mostly absent, and a change of shift waitress (yes, we were the last lunch customers) who was rude, in fact, extremely rude. My advice:... More

Description
The restaurant initially began as a wholesale distributor for the island's hotels and restaurants. Cooked takeaway service was added; along with a friendly free beer while you wait. Shortly after that the health inspector demanded we go the whole way or "wholesale only". This was around 1998. Long time friend and fellow musician with the local VSOP Jazz band "Stu Jenkins" became the resident artist (designer) and we named the up coming restaurant "LOBSTER ALIVE and all that Jazz". We felt our way; with many of the usual restaurant mistakes. But it seems now, we have scored quite well with international critics, restaurant guide books; and our many repeat customers.
