I highly recommend The Station House for lobster! I drive from Jupiter to Lantana because they are worth the trip! Check it out for yourself and you will not be dissappointed!

Food was delicious. Their prices were overwhelming since the last time we were there. I had a 2.5 lb lobster that cost around $50.00. My other guests were also astounded by the new menu prices. We were there on a Friday night, in season and the place looked half empty at 7:30 p.m. I can only believe people stayed away because of the new higher prices.

This restaurant had good reviews on Open Table, so we went expecting a good experience. The place was empty and did not fill up as we sat there even though it was Friday night. It looks tired and forlorn inside. Even though the ladies room was quite nice, freshly painted and new. The valet who parked our car was nice. The waiter was very nice. The lobster bisque was so bad, we sent it back. The tails and tips my husband had were over cooked and the meat was not of a hight quality and presented more in hunks than tips. the broccoli was hard and not a vivid green. The fries were good as was the salmon., but the whole place felt dreary, gloomy past its prime. The coffee we closed with was good.

We celebrated our first anniversary at The Station House and we were happy overall. A bit pricey for fare that you can essentially get anywhere along the actual oceanfron for much less. Our waiter was excellent and the food was above average.

have eaten there for many years but have not eaten there lately. Different ownership, the menu has contracted. Not as many appetizers and entrees as were previously offered. Lobster bisque was very generic and not good. Lobster was good, but at $29 for a 1 1/4 lb, not great value. All other entrees were pricey and the menu prices have gone up substantially since my last visit. Service, however, was excellent.

We were really looking forward to our anniversary dinner and one of us was disappointed. The Lobster Boil was good and plentiful but the pasta and lobster was a small portion. There was only 5 small pieces of lobster and not much pasta. It may have been homemade pasta but for $30.00 it should have been a larger serving. I shared my plate that had a good size lobster, 3 huge shrimp, mucho mussels, cherrystone clams, andouille sausage (spicy), 2 medium potatoes and 2 pieces of corn for $40.00. Do you see my point?
Service was great, our waiter was excellent, salad was perfect, crisp and the Blue Cheese dressing was to die for.

Times change and so has the Station House. Disclaimer: I was a frequent diner under the previous owner's tenure. I was so excited about finally having the time to visit the Station House having dined there at least 8 times a year for about 10 years and I wanted my friend who is local to have the same great experience I always had so when I asked him to join me for their twin lobster special, he jumped at the opportunity. But alas, no more twin lobster special - and honestly, that did put me off. We ordered the seafood boil - some clams, shrimp and mussels in a broth (more on that later) topped with a 1.25 lobster. There was certainly enough food, but I will rate the meal as meh. Old Bay seasoning was pretty much the only thing that we could taste and being a New Englander, I cannot imagine ever ruining a good lobster with such a heavy spice. Crabs go quite well with Old Bay, but I'm a lobster purist. Great lobsters should be steamed plain with maybe a little drawn butter (or not - that's an individual choice). The old wait staff looks like they are all gone - new owner=new wait staff. I did not appreciate our waiter mansplaining lobster to me and why the twin special is no longer offered. Though the service was good, the mansplaining was insulting - especially to someone who started cracking her own lobsters at 3 years old! Here's what's the same and still good - the bruschetta is fantastic as is the peppercorn salad dressing (on a very tiny salad). The cocktails are still good. And what's the same and not so good? The hostesses are so very young and I'm not sure if they are encouraged to dress like they could work at Hooters, but they do. I will give Station House one more try and will re-review in the near future. But 2 strikes...we'll see.

We were a party of three celebrating my birthday but our waiter was not going to allow us a comp birthday dessert that a few other tables received for their particular special occasions.

He finally did come over with a dessert and had a nasty attitude when he placed it on our table.

He actually charged the other lady in our party for the dessert.

I advised the general manager Charlie about this incident and he was kind enough to offer us a free round of drinks when we return next visit. That was very professional and perhaps our waiter, Sean could use a teaching session from his management team.

We'll be back again and we'll celebrate another occasion soon at The Station House in Lantana, FL.

Went for all you can eat lobster which originally advertised for $50 per person. They charged $65.00. The reason given by the waitress is they lost money at $50.00. Seemed like a bait and switch. I will be back because I love this restaurant.

I went for the ALL you can eat lobster that was $65. Per person. I called at least 5 Times to inquire about the price no return call. I would not have gone had I known the price. I stayed for the 5 Small lobster Tails
at $40. Nothing to write home about, the corn was sour . The waiter was Arrogant. NOTHING LIKE GOING OUT FOR DINNER AND THE WAITER is Condescending. So After a glass of wine and the 5 lobster takes I hit their $65. NUMBER. LOL

I had the unlimited lobster feast and was pleasantly surprised. The first plate consisted of 2 pound and a quarter lobsters, small ear of corn, 2 boiled potatoes and coleslaw. After that the lobsters were brought one at a time. Our female server, whose name I don't remember, was busy as can be, but always was right there with another lobster. The lobsters were tender and sweet. Yes, I am thinking about going back on the 19th for another feast. $65.00. We had wine and delicious desserts. We were two women and were surprised that a 20% gratuity was added to our check. Since the service was good, and that's what I usually tip, I let it go. All in all, it was a great experience

The focus here is "Lobster" and I admit to having ordered grouper. The dish was presented with 4 asparagus and begun with a salad which was no more than lettuce with a couple of cherry tomatoes. I might not have thought so badly had the piece of fish had some flavor.

Perhaps, the "Lobster" dishes are better.
