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!

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.

A&B is great spot in the Key West area for a fully composed meal as opposed to some variety of fancy bar food you'll find pretty much everywhere else on the island. Unfortunately the service was pretty slow considering that the place was pretty much empty the night my group was there. Same goes for the bar service. We ordered refills on drinks that didn't come until we were almost done our meals.

Regrettably my party of 6 business colleagues was directed to move from our table to another table after more than 15 minutes of settling in with drinks and wine bottle ordered. Very unprofessionally handled by inexperienced hostess. The original table was not seated for another hour and a half. This was avoidable and should never have happened. Thankfully our new server worked hard to improve the experience. Shrimp fettuccini with clam cream sauce was way too heavy, other seafood dishes of grouper and mixed grill were better prepared and enjoyed.

Hostesses were WAY too snobby and put me off completely. They were all hanging around the entrance and made us feel unwelcome. Our waiter was lovely though. Food was good but a bit overpriced for what we got. - Kate

This is our second time at A&B Lobster House when we visit Key West. Everything is amazing, fresh and delicious. Seafood is expensive as well as beef so please review the menu before you make a reservation so you are aware of what things cost. This restaurant is worth it.

A & B Lobster House has perfectly prepared fish and lobster, which is rare to find not overcooked most places. Our 3rd visit and just as good each time! Great service from Casey and food was excellent! We had the flounder topped with crabmeat special and grouper topped with crabmeat. All of us were impressed by the wonderful dinners.

I've been here before. It is an iconic Key West fine dining establishment. I was actually disappointed on several levels.
Service was inattentive and our waiter had zero personality or rapport.
When you pay top dollar (over $40) for seafood it better be amazing. This was just an average meal with a big ticket. Like I said, I've eaten there serval other times so thought I knew what to expect.
I brought my girlfriend here to share a great meal and although WE had a great time it was not because of A&B it could've been had anywhere else.
As a matter of fact after dinner we went to a dessert place called Better than Sex which just about lived up to its name! Yummy, Good stuff.
I feel that A&B was just living on their past reputation they just phoned it in. Nothing unique especially rubbery lobster come on you have lobster in your name. Bottom line it should've been much better there are many other excellent choices in KW.
Too bad Its great going back to place you've been to before and loving the food plus turning someone else on to a place is always fun...this was not the case.

We sat outside and had a view of the marina. We loved seeing the tarpon playing in the water. We really liked our waitress and the chef was able to accommodate our dietary issues. The food was great and so was the wine. If you are a scotch drinker, limited selection. I would recommend this restaurant.

Came for my fiance's birthday as we do every year. His favorite Surf and Turf was amazing as always. He really enjoyed it and talks about it for days after. We always have delicious meals and a fantastic time. Thanks to our server (Phillip) for wonderful service. See you next year!

I've been going there for over 30 years and I've never been disappointed before...lobster bisque was watery and didn't taste fresh, the lobster, shrimp and scallops were ok but not the quality usually found at A and B Lobster,no flavor. Definitely not worth the price. This was the first time I had been there in maybe 10 years so maybe it's the new ownership? My husband also didn't feel well later...I'm just sad.

Anniversary dinner outside overlooking the marina. Very attentive service without being intrusive. Food very good. One dish my wife didn't care for after it arrived but not because it was prepared poorly, just wasn't her taste. Will definitely go back again.

Great View, Food and Service at A & B Lobster House fine dining! Grouper with crabmeat was cooked perfectly and great service with a beautiful view of Key West Harbor. Oysters Rockefeller were delicious as well.
Downstairs at Alonzo's has great food as well (1/2 price drinks and appetizers from 4-6:30 every day). Casey at Alonzo's makes a great Mojito as well!
A and B OUTSTANDING
Service , food, ambience all top notch. Probably our best meal in Key West . Scallops appetizer to die for.Everything off the boat fresh.Server was spot on. Great overall experience .A little pricy but worth every penny.They should put something on the menu about the history ,it is something to be proud of. Cigar lounge as well. A definite must do in Key West. Will return next visit.
First Time Won't Be My Last
Loved this place for a nice dinner with a group of friends. We sat outside and had a beautiful view of the marina. Our server was on point with all of his suggestions. Be prepared to pay high end prices, but the food and service well worth every penny. We stayed long after dinner was over and just enjoyed the atmosphere and ambiance. Everyone agreed we would definitely return.
Dining at A&B
Food was excellent along with the service. We arrived a little early so went for drinks at the bar.
The young lady behind the bar was very nice and made an awesome margarita from scratch (no pre-mix stuff). would definitely recommend this place!

Probably the best oyster Rockefeller ive ever had (and I lived in New Orleans for 4 years) only disappointment was the restaurant running out of the 2lbs baked lobster, however, the lobster paella was an incredible substitute.
