We are fans of the Station House since the very first time we went over 25 years ago, has changed owners a few times but the service is top notch and the lobsters are always great. We had the clams with white wine sauce appetizer it was so good, could have used a few more pieces of the toast though. Also now that there are no food shortages we need the rolls and bruchetta back. Please please bring it back , it was like a trademark and it has been gone too long. We really enjoyed it and I know others are missing it to.

Thanks for a great review Unfortunately, with COVID and all the restrictions we have been writing a check every month to keep the doors open and make sure that our 50+ employees and their families are taken care of. This has forced us to make some difficult decisions which include complimentary bread for our guests. We realize this has been a long time tradition of the Station House we are currently in uncertain and unpresented times. Thank you again for your kind review and understanding

The food was not nearly up to par. Fried Ravioli was overcooked, caesar salad had an odd, indescribable taste, and the lobster scampi had an overpowering flavor of lemon. The restaurant was loud with a genre of music that wasn’t appropriate for a supposed fine dining establishment. For what we paid for this meal we were both quite disappointed. We won’t be back.

Another great meal at The Station House. Nick was awesome and his suggestion of the bread pudding was a great way to end the meal!

I was looking forward to a delicious lobster. Unfortunately it was tasteless. The potatoes did not taste fresh and the corn was practically a quarter of baby corn.
Nothing on my very expensive plate was good. I went home hungry

My fiancee and I had a great date night at The Station House. The peach martini was amazing. Our server took the liberty of splitting the caesar salad for us and thereby saving us a few bucks, which was very thoughtful. The chicken and the shrimp pasta were outstanding. Our only complaint was that there was a large lag of time between our appetizer and our main course. We had to ask for it to be checked on a few times. Otherwise, we had a great meal and would return again when we visit the area.

This was our first time here. The service was good and the restaurant had a nice ambiance reminiscent of older Florida. We had lobster and crab and both were excellent! I also recommend the key lime pie!!

Advertised special was a 4 pound Maine lobster for $99.00. The carapace on the 4 pound lobster was over 5 inches, making it a Canadian lobster.
The real (smaller) Maine lobsters are better tasting.

Came here for NYE with my boyfriend and his dad, and sat outside. Felt very comfortable with the social distancing. We ordered the lobster and a few drinks. Our food was delicious and well done. I appreciate that they will break open the lobster for you! Loved the lobster outside and took pictures! Will be back!

The best Lobster in the area. The service is great, they crack the lobsters for you so it’s easy to eat. They have expanded the menu for those folks who don’t want seafood. The Filet was delicious as well.

We were disappointed that there were no 4lb. Lobsters available at the beginning of service, but the 2lb. ones were good. I didn't like the mac and cheese at all but the mixed veggies were very good. Salads were good. Lobster bisque and the crabmeat stuffing were just ok. It was chilly outside and not much better inside....hard to eat your lobster fast enough so that it doesn't get too cold. Our waitress Amanda was attentive. Overall, it wasn't quite what we had hoped for on our 1st Christmas away from our family, but just ok. We WERE lobster-sated when we left though. Thanks to all who worked on Christmas day to serve us.

We have gone to Station House for years. I made a reservation for five which is confirmed on this app.

Upon arriving, we were greeted by a very rude hostess that said there was no way we made a reservation for five and that they did not have room for us.

We were going to leave, but another employee suggested we eat outside which we did.

The lobster was good, but of course overpriced because it was Christmas.The salad portion was small. The potato portion was small and the corn on the cob portion was very little.

The only thing that was excellent was the waiter and his service.

We realize that Covid has put a pinch on restaurants to a certain extent, but this cannot be the excuse here.

They need to do better.

Have been coming for YEARS. Nice to see menu always seems a little different but the classics remain. Francese is always my fave and always great whether it’s grouper or snapper. Hostess was very nice as was our new server. I recommend SH to so many people as it’s a bit off beaten path. Def worth leaving your usual downtown scene for.

Exceptional as usual! They have added a number of very nice Italian nice dishes & other items to their new menu. The service could not have been better. We go for the Maine Lobster. 3 lb female, plain broiled after a dozen fresh, cold raw oysters and their house salad with the house dressing
Simply the only go to and the best restaurant anywhere in S. Florida for Maine Lobster.
It amazes me how many people who have lived in S. Florida for years "never heard of Station House".

Lobster is outstanding and service is excellent with friendly workers. We went on Sunday evening and it was very quiet. I have to believe this is due to Covid-19 concerns because there is nothing negetive to be said about this resaurant. Also the building is charming similar to the Florida Keys or Cape Cod. We will definately be back for the freshest lobster we've ever had.

The food my wife and myself ordered was descent, but it was disheartening that you charged for bread. There is not price I wouldn't pay for quality service which we did receive, but to be so cheap as to not bring bread with our dinners is ridiculous. I do understand times are a bit rough, but y'all don't need be cheap. Truly other than that, it was a pleasant experience.
