Very disappointed with their evolution during this difficult time. Likely the last time I go back. It is sad as they have been a staple in Palm Beach County for cold water lobster.

Food was good. Main problem was at 5:30 pm restaurant was out of its steak special and other selected dishes. Waiter told us this often happens on Sunday afternoons.
The restaurant representatives did not tell us of items that were unavailable when we called to confirm the details of our reservation, Very disappointing!

On dining at the station house, the waiters were great, it was a birthday celebration great dessert. the food appeared to be good but when we got home both of us were sick. I do not know if the lobster tails were cooked enough or not?
In the past I would have recommended the Station house and I never had a bad meal there.

From the arrival time to the departure time the service was absolutely exceptional (including valet team). The hostess gave options of sitting a few tables inside or outside the restaurant due to the fact they were nearly full. I was very pleased that we got a choice. The appetizers were brought as made and were very , very fresh. The clams casino were stunning! The only suggestion would be a fever bacon pieces on top but was delicious. The cobia bites were super fresh and 'finger licking good.' The main course comes with the house salad and choice of dressing: blue cheese, balsamic vinaigrette or raspberry vinaigrette . The main course both were very tasty and prepared to the perfection. The fish on either dish was not fried and both were seared.
Very good restaurant and I would come back again!

Unlike others times, this was a miss. Everything about our experience was very good to excellent except the crab cake entrees. Our server, Adam, was professional and anticipated our wishes. Cocktails were expert, generous and reasonable. Both the Ceasar and wedge salads were on point. The side of brussel sprouts was outstanding - what doesn't taste better with a ton of bacon? Sadly, the feature item was 2 patties of mashed potatoes dotted with some crab. (Actually, Riggin's makes them much better) They seemed redundant along side garlic mashed potatoes. This was a case of shudder stuck to the lobster or fish.

The best raspberry ranch dressing makes any salad taste so wonderful that you eat every bit. Great broiled lobster with crab stuffing!

Food was amazing, staff was five star.

Dining room temperature was warm, there were fans in dining area, but doesn't help if they are just blowing warm air.

Apparently no dress code, went on date night expecting a dressy type evening, but were seated next to customers in shorts and t-shirts with sandals. Felt a bit awkward.

On the higher end pricewise, but to be expected for the type of food they serve. The food was fantastic, and the service was very good. I would definitely recommend it for a more than casual night out.

if you want lobster, this is the place to go. The night I went they had 1 1/2 to 6 lbs and we settled on a 4 lb. Unbelievable.

This was our first visit to The Station House. The service was great as our waiter was very attentive and answered any menu questions we had. The food was delicious. We dine out a lot and this was the best lobster we’ve ever had. If you want lobster, this is your place. Can’t wait to go back when we are in the area.

The lobster was, as always, delicious. I'm from Maine so I know lobster. Our server was great - friendly and helpful. I was particularly impressed with the safety protocols - cleanliness (the ladies room was spotless), gloves and masks on employees and social distancing of tables. It was the first time I have ventured out for dinner since March. I went because I had seen the Station House's statement about safety - what they had done to make guests safer - before I went. The reality lived up to the expectations they set.
The only negative: the lobster came with boiled potatoes and corn. There were four tiny potatoes and a third of an ear of corn on the plate, looking very forlorn. For the price, I expected at least an ear of corn and one large or a couple of medium-sized potatoes. It can't be that much more expensive.
One positive is having the server crack the lobsters for you. I think Maine sends all their hard shells down south and they can be challenging to crack open. Overall, great meal.
