A&B Lobster House Ratings and Reviews

My family and I very much enjoyed our experience at the A&B lobster house. We were originally seated outside, and a boat nearby was blaring Music. We asked to be moved inside, and they accommodated us immediately. The food was delicious, and it was generally a calm and laid back experience. I would highly recommend it to others.

Shrimp Cocktail both generous and delicious, a must try. Lobster Bisque was also a killer! The rest of my party loved their main course. I had the yellowtail snapper and would not recommend. Too much fire in the dish ruined the delicate flavor of the fish.

Whenever we are visiting Key West, we always love to visit A & B Lobster House for a wonderful meal! The cocktails are great, the food is superb and the ambiance is perfect! Go early to have a cocktail in the lounge....very comfortable! Our server was the best! He was very energetic and fun!

Outstanding dining at A&B Lobster House. We brought several family members to Key West for Thanksgiving week and knew that A&B had to be one of the places we ate. We have been here many times before and this evening was a good as those before it. We like A&B so much it is our annual restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner (and there are many excellent places to eat in Key West). Our guests are leaving the Wednesday before Thanksgiving but we booked A&B for just the two of us for Thanksgiving dinner. Service is outstanding as is the marina view. The food is extraordinary with a variety of choices from steak to lobster and everything in between. You cannot go wrong eating here.

Refined atmosphere among the hustle and bustle of Key West. Delicious seafood, and steaks. Lobsters are their specialty. Very professional wait staff. Portions are on the small side, but that left room for a fabulous creme brulee. Highly recommend.

We were a little disappointed with this visit. Before this visit, this was hands down our favorite place for a nice dinner in Key West. The menu has changed from the one I was familiar with; which is fine, except they don't have one of my favorite entrees now. The oysters Rockefeller were marginal. The food is still good but it is not the stellar dining experience we were used to.

Although pricey and a special occasion destination, we felt A&B delivered for the price! We had a beautiful view of the marina, it was removed from the noise of Duval (even during fantasy fest), but only a short walk, GREAT location. Our server was EXCELLENT! Not one time were we waiting or looking for him. I ordered the Lobster/mushroom/truffle risotto....OMG YUMMMMMM. Highly recommend. We were a party of 4 and honestly I don't remember what everyone got, my husband got a lobster pasta dish which we both loved, the other wife got the lobster tail and I think scallops, whatever it was we were all thrilled with the presentation, portion sizes, flavors, textures, temperatures etc. I'm usually able to offer some constructive criticism for the restaurant but can't think of a single thing they can improve on! Awesome dinner! Thank you A&B!

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 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.
