The Lobster House restaurant came into being in 1944 on the Southbank of the St. Johns River in a building that used to be a boat repair shop. It’s pop culture claim to fame is that several scenes for Revenge Of The Creature, the 3-D sequel to The Creature From The Black Lagoon were filmed there in the mid 1950′s with the Gillman climbing from the St. Johns River and snatched it’s victim from the restaurant. The structure burned in the early 1960′s. The current River City Brewing Company is located close to The Lobster House’s former site at the base of the Acosta Bridge.
