The service was good and the waitress was pleasant. The food quality was poor and way overpriced. The portions were ridiculously small and left there still hungry. It is priced as an upscale restaurant, but buffet quality food. The zucchini was soggy and soaked in...More

Lobstahs is closing soon. They have abbreviated their menu, and no longer offer some of the favorites that we have enjoyed previously. Rather than limp to a closing, they should consider closing immediately and just get it over with. Sadly...

Very friendly staff, good meal, a little more than I work normally spend but you have to expect that at the beach. Good selection of food, my husband loved his dish. I ordered lobster, it was a little dry. Overall, I would recommend.

Hello What are the gluten free menu options please? I see in some reviews a gluten free menu is mentioned but I am not able to view it with your regular menu. Will be traveling with a young child so child preferred gluten free options is what I am most looking for. Thanks in advance!

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!
