Fantastic fresh seafood! My wife and I went there to celebrate three life events that occurred in a relatively close timeframe and we had a memorable, romantic meal. Can't wait for our next trip back to Key West so we can go to the A&B again!

Main criticism of this place was ambiance which wasn't their fault. We were there on a Tuesday out of season and weather wasn't great so virtually no other customers. Service was very attentive. Lobster a bit overcooked but oysters rockefeller were excellent. Wine not badly priced and cocktails very good.

Very good food. Service was great too. No pressure to turn the table so we enjoyed a leisurely meal. I enjoyed the grouper, crab overlay with a very good sauce, potatoes and asparagus. My husband got the Florida lobster tail. It looked pretty small, but he got completely full. Also the Caesar salad was awesome, a must get for Caesar lovers.

The A & B Lobster House is an outstanding venue with exceptional staff (John our waiter). It is the perfect spot for a romantic, outdoor dinner. The attached Berlin's Cigar Bar is a bonus; also exceptional and knowledgeable staff (Sean our bartender).

A&B Lobster House is one of our favorite restaurants to go when we visit Key West. They have both wonderful seafood and steak options. The Florida Lobster Tail was fantastic. Great ambience and wonderful view of the marina when dining outside.

My wife and I have made A & B our one traditional Key West restaurant for a time frame of nearly 20 years, and we recommend it to everyone we know that visits Key West. We will be back there again on our next visit to Key West! The filet mignon cuts like butter, and the Oscar grouper is fantastic!! We also enjoyed the HUGE shrimp cocktail martini!! Thank you chefs and staff!

If you're looking for somewhere very nice off of Duval St and away from the hustle and bustle
With a beautiful view this is the place to go You can dine inside if it's too hot outside. The outside deck is beautiful though. The service was good and the food was good.

Definitely a great place for an intimate date night and or birthday celebration. The food was great and the service was phenomenal. The view of the water on the balcony is fabulous and it's a very comfortable environment.

Great food options, it was also delicious. The host was extremely rude, I spoke to her before she spoke to me and she rolled her eyes. I've worked in restaurants before and for a place as fancy as A&B Lobster House I know that is not how you treat a guest. Aside from that the meal and our server were wonderful!

We enjoyed this special restaurant for a romantic dinner with a great view, in a warm evening of July. We was delighted by a delicious shrimp cocktail "Martini" and an excellent Butter poached Flirida lobster tail!

A great place for your white table cloth dining experience in Key West. The hog fish was amazing and I usually don't eat fish. Attentive wait staff, table with a view. Convenient for those staying at or close to the marina.

The Good: Two thumbs up for the Delicious food & great service.
The bad: Ambiance was not what we expected based on the menu price point. The restaurant was only 3/4 full and the crowd was a little boisterous, but the acoustics in the dining room amplified everything. Arrived around 8:15 pm on an the off-season Friday night and you couldn't carry on a conversation without raising your voice to be heard across the table. Finally moved across to sit next to my wife.
The Ugly (but very comical): Moving across the table allowed me to hear my wife speak without shouting, but set us up perfectly for the show which was about to begin at the next table. Five clearly intoxicated gentlemen arrived, ordered more alcohol, and began act one of the show. The first act was the their loud drunken memories of adventures at a local gentlemens' club . Apparently, one of their group had fallen in love, and had invited one of the entertainers along for a lobster dinner. Act two began when she joined them. The conversation turned political and the poor young lady happened to mention her support for a certain orange skinned businessman. This really upset one of their more drunken buddies. He proceeded to unleash a loud, profanity laced tirade in favor of the other candidate. The young lady tried to ignore him and eat her lobster, and his buddies tried in vain for 20 minutes to get him to calm down.
Dinner and a free show, what more could you ask for on your anniversary. That being said, it was Key West on a Friday night🤔

The restaurant is very pricey. Has a very nice view. We requested to dine outside, however it was a little noisy with boats, etc, but it was our choice to be outside. The food was excellent. We were there for our Anniversary and it totally Fit the Event!

Great recommendation from our hotel. Very well prepared seafood in a comfortable setting, topped off by great service from Luther, our waiter. The Oscar Grouper and Key West Shrimp Pasta were excellent, but you have to like rich sauces...which we do. Large stately dining room with additional outdoor seating on the wrap-around balcony.

We arrived for our reservations made through Open Table and was told by the hostess that they didn't have our name in their system. They were not crowded at the time, and we were able to get a table. Food was fair, at most, and highly over priced for what you received--I believe they're living on their name. Very disappointed that our Open Table reservations were not in their system.
