A Long Island restaurant is hoping to solve a crustacean caper and get their mascot back.

Kobe, a 7-foot lobster statue was stolen from out in front of Amagansett's Banzai Burger.

The more than 100 pound statue normally holds a sign that says "Eat Beef" near the Montauk Highway.

The owners did not report the lobster-napping to the police because they inherited the lobster with the property and it was just an old prop they used for fun.

But, if you find Kobe, they're offering a $1,000 reward in booze and food to anyone providing information that leads to the lobster's safe return.
