A&B Lobster House Ratings and Reviews
Great place to dine if you enjoy a stuff ...
Great place to dine if you enjoy a stuffy atmosphere and a rude waiter. My wife and I made a late evening reservation with the intention of each having a bowl of Lobster Bisque. You should have seen the change in our waiter's attitude when we told him we just wanted Lobster Bisque.
When we asked for our check, he accidentally (wink, wink) gave us someone else's bill for $250 -- such a classy move. We also noticed that if you spend $250, he writes his name and "Thank You" on the bill, but not if you order a measly two bowls of Lobster Bisque for $10 per bowl. Sorry to disappoint you, Mr. Waiter. The next time we are in Key West and we are hungry for seafood, we will be sure to avoid A&B.

Fabulous meal for two and attentive service. We had hogfish with lobster and the ribeye steak. Followed by key lime pie. Food was absolutely delicious and steak cooked to perfection. Book ahead to avoid disappointment.

A & B Lobster House is a beautiful place to dine on local fare. We had Lobster and Hog Fish, and both were very good. We also had a single, jumbo sized Stone Crab Claw, one claw = $22! That's right, one single crab claw for $22. I don't mind paying upscale prices for upscale food, but the charge for one claw was outrageous! I will likely not return to A & B Lobster House, as there is upscale quality dining all over Key West that is much more affordable.

Food was great . Waiter was very friendly and attentive. Had amazing Key Lime pie on the house for my 50th Birthday! Your staff was very friendly towards my friend and her- Medical Alert Service Dog "Buzzer". Staff member gave "Buzzer" water.

An unexpected treat. We needed a table for a large group last minute and found this on OT. They were able to accommodate us and provide us with an excellent table. Servings were generous and everything was flavorful. The food was fantastic - most people at the table wanted to keep eating but were just too full. There services was great - very attentive, but not overbearing. In all one of the best meals I have had in a while in a beautiful setting. The only downside - very expensive.
Just one word. Disappointed. Not anymore ...
Just one word. Disappointed. Not anymore the A&B that it used to be. My steak came undercooked and my wife's yellowtail was swimming in oil. I've been a loyal patron for years, sorry to tell you, I won't be back. To be fair, the only thing outstanding was service. That's it.

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.

Had a wonderful meal at A&B for my bday. Kinda pricey but well worth it. Had the lobster which was excellent and my husband the filet mignon and cooked to perfection. Leave the small kids at home. You'll have a better time.

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.
