Our last night in Key West, after an amazing 6 days, we had a craving for lobster. We have visited Key West several times over the past 20 years, but never gave A & B Lobster House a try. Unfortunately, when we did, we were a bit disappointed. The very young hostesses were quite aloof and seemed to think they... More

Wanted an upscale dinner for our 20th wedding anniversary. Our waiter D.J. was fantastic and the food was delicious. The only tiny issue was the dress code. We wanted to go somewhere where we could wear something nice. Prior to picking A&B we called and the spokesperson said business casual. We thought great. Upon arrival though there were customers in... More

There are many restaurants to choose from in Key West, make sure to add A & B to your list. Even on a rainy night it was a great visit. Try and get a seat on the balcony overlooking the marina. Our seafood meals were superb and the server was most attentive.

This restaurant came highly recommended by our hotel. Definitely lived up to the recommendation. We sat inside, as it was very windy--but the views were nice, and the setting is very comfortable. Excellent food--husband had the paella, which was delicious, I had the lobster risotto, which was also excellent. Excellent waiters, great service.

Excellent fish menu (what else would you expect in Key West?) but probably at the upper end price-wise. We had Caribbean lobster (no claws, just a large, juicy tail). Delicious. I had the clam chowder (OK, maybe a bit on the salty side) and my wife had an excellent lobster bisque. Quiet setting on second floor overlooking the boat harbor,... More

Made a reservation on open table for a weds evening, they don't open the main restaurant until 6. You can eat down below at the oyster house earlier though. I requested a seat with a view and we were put on the outside porch which is beautiful. A little too windy in April for the outdoor screens to be up,... More

We've been to Key West twice, and A&B twice! The food, cocktails and service are always outstanding! Great place to have dinner overlooking the marina. Ask for an outside table if it's available. We will visit A&B every time we're there.

View is fabulous but the food is average. Portions are quite large but I would have preferred smaller portions with tastier food. I had the risotto with Caribbean lobster and truffle. The lobster was actually good but the risotto and mushrooms were bland- very little taste of truffle. I think there must be tastier menus with equally beautiful views. On... More
