An awesome place to have a lobstah dinnah in Tampa, Florida.

Of all the restaurants that I've been to in Tampa, Monstah Lobstah has gotta have the blandest food of them all, AND THAT'S A GOOD THING!  It's really refreshing not to have a meal that's chalked full of grease and over-salted or over-sugared, like most of the other food that I've had in Tampa.

I like their dinnahs here.  Yeah, I said it.  Dinnah!  They also have appetizahs, samplahs, groupahs, chowdah, etc.  I love it! :)  My friend and I split a lobstah dinnah with a one and a quarter pound lobstah.  The lobstah was simply boiled and served as is with a side of potatah salad and corn on the cob plus some melted buttah.  The lobstah was perfect, and the potatah salad and corn went very well with it.  The dinnah was $21.  Deal!

Interesting tidbit: Monstah Lobstah is owned by an ultimate fighter of the same name who's from Maine, where apparently, the lobsters are from.  So it's no surprise that a few of my friend's jiu jitsu classmates work here and you'll also find many MMA folks dining here.

There's nothing fancy about Monstah Lobstah; it's plain and simple delicious food.  Totally down home with no frills.  Aside from lobstah, they also serve clams, shrimp, groupah and crab, the latter of which the staff really, really recommended we try the next time we were there.  The staff members, by the way, are awesome.  Besides making good recommendations on Monstah Lobstah's menu, they also gave my friend and I good recommendations on other restaurants around the area.

Gotta love that lobstah!

This one sounds like a great place to be. I have a friend moving to Florida, I'll let her know about this one for sure! Thanks!

I lived in St. Pete which is right across the bay from Tampa for a very long time. I'm curious as to where in Tampa this place is located.

Oooh, I've been to St. Pete a few times! Monstah Lobstah is in south Florida in a strip mall on South Dale Mabry.

Near MacDill Air Base?

Hmmm... Well, not that south, maybe about 5 miles north of MacDill.

That gives me a better idea.
