Lobster has fortunately closed. Enough of an overrated restaurant with an overpriced menu! Apparently enough other patrons had had enough.

Atmosphere is terrible! Crowded and you feel like you are having a conversation with the table next to you. The service was horrible, the food was mediocre at best. Overpriced and overrated! Please people-ask a local where to go and forget about this tourist trap!

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...
