Disappointing to say the least! Being from New England we expected to be brought back to shores of the sound but was sadly let down. Paid 30 dollars for a small plate of pasta to only include some lobster knuckle . Plus they only carry 1 1/2 pound lobsters. I expected more I think I'm being generous with a score... More

I order the 2- 3oz medallions tenderloins with potatoes and veggies. All was very good. The meat was mouthwatering, tender just all round fantastic. And I am very picky when it comes to my filets. This entrée was 24$. I didn't care for the added 18% tip for a table of 8. My family of 6 and what we ordered... More

This was our third visit to Lobstahs....our first a couple of years ago was great, our second las year was ok, this time it was really not very good at all. We've travelled a long way to eat here...from England, so were looking forward to our meal. Service was pretty poor to start with, we had booked but there was... More

I arrived in AMI Saturday afternoon with my family and after unpacking our gear at rental house we drove around and stumbled upon Lobstah's. Me and my daughter love oysters and we shared a dozen. Their homemade cocktail sauce was great with a side of horseradish. My fiance ordered their meaty lobster bisque with a hint of sherry which I... More

I'm from up north and the lobster is not even close to fresh and flavorful. The best part of the place is the ambience

First of all the food was excellent. We ordered the Garlic Lobstah and Grouper Bites. However while our server, Hanna, was beginning to take our order another server named Jessica interrupted her and raised her voice at Hanna because she was supposed to take our table? I'm flattered that our table must have been so important to her but it... More

Walked in the door and almost turned around because of the fishy smell which is usually a bad sign but the rest of my party convinced me to stay. Great selection of beers - made me happy as well as the smell seemed to only be at the front door - the back where we were seated was odor free..... More
