A&B Lobster House
Fantastic Fine DiningOur party enjoyed a great meal - first the food - from the daily specials including the pecan crusted grouper with scallops and the lobster with crab cakes to the surf and turf - all perfectly cooked and delectable. These were were accompanied as is the A and B tradition with baby vegetables and mashed potatoes. The Caesar salad, shrimp cocktail, and lobster bisque were outstanding as well as the bananas foster and key lime pie. Service is impeccable here as well! The al fresco ambiance of this night was special
due to the cool north breezes at dusk. Yes you pay a bit more for this but it is well worth it.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food but priceyThe food was excellent and although the portions were just right for us I consider the portions to be too small for the price.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Food BUT...The food, service and decor are fabulous but the specials run out early and there are items on the menu not being offered any longer....noteably the caviar service. One of the few places to get caviar and they stopped serving it. I was there for a 50th birthday dinner and one of the reasons for dining there was for caviar which they do not have despite it being on the menu. Then the alternative was giant stone crab claws but that ran out before the order could be put in....oh well. The food is really delicious as well as service and ambiance...disappointing still....5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLOVED IT!Took a few clients to A&B on our last night in Key West. Great decision! Food was excellent - service was wonderful, and the cigar lounge helped seal the deal for me. Outstanding!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMNice dinnerNice setting overlooking the wharf. Food was good not great. Would definitely return though.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceA and B Lobster House is right on the harbor in Key West. We dined outside and had a great view and cool breezes. The food was delicious...from the soup to the desserts! The service was very good. It was well worth the money.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved It!Three times to Key West and we finally went to AB Lobster House!
We have always wanted to go, but activities got in the way.
Close to Mallory Square, we went after the show. PS-Make sure you see Jeep and Cleo (Mallory SQ)
AB Is at the Harbor, beautiful view both in the lounge and restaurant.
To die for gourmet Clam Chowder only $7.75 with fresh bread, that alone was worth the trip.
Bria was our server and she was excellent and not hovering.
Romantic Table for 2 outside with a harbor view.
Large portions. Extensive enough wine list. Great Seafood!
We will definitely make this a must do on our next visit. Special tip-if you scooter or mo-ped you can park for free5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWOW!We dined with another couple to celebrate their thirty year anniversary and my wife's birthday. Spectacular food, wine, service and view of the marina. It doesn't get much better than this!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved food and service.We loved food and service. Outdoors table overlooking the old harbor was great. Definitely must visit if in Key West.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Spot in Key West for SeafoodMake your reservations in advance, and try to get a table on the outside deck. Great views of the water/harbor, especially at sunset! The lobster thermador is excellent! Rich, flavorful and generous. The wine list is quite good and wide ranging. The shrimp cocktail is one of the freshest and tastiest I've ever had and my partner's escargot appetizer was decedent and sized more like a meal. A&B is a must for anyone visiting Key West who has a taste for fresh seafood made well. Prices are a bit more expensive than average, with dinner for 2 including wine, running about $240. But it's well worth spoiling yourself for a romantic evening or special occasion.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great Meal. Wine listHad a great Meal. Wine list was good,but did find the same wine in another establishment for $20.00 less only disappointment of the evening. Otherwise great experience.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAte outside with a great viewAte outside with a great view of the harbor, fun watching the evening boats coming in. Service excellent from hostess to waiter who was attentive and experienced. Food was very good as well. Seared tuna excellent. It is a bit pricey being over $200 for two with tip.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing, super fresh seafood.Amazing, super fresh seafood. This is a restaurant not to be missed when visiting Key West!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA&B has it all. Great food,A&B has it all. Great food, service and location. Enjoy Florida's finest local seafood or a great steak, have a drink and enjoy sitting dockside at Key Wests busiest marina. Located above Olonzo's Oyster Bar (which has a great Happy Hour from 4-6), A&B thus offers it's elevated white tablecloth service from it's elevated second story spot. Wear your best shorts and flip flops and make sure to save room for the award winning banana foster dessert.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMEddie OThe scallop appetizer was fantastic. The fish special "Hog fish was excellent. loved the place4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMJust OKA beautiful restaurant with great service. The items my wife and I ordered were just alright. She had the yellow tail snapper and I had their Lobster Thermidor. The Lobster Thermidor was not what I expected. It was served in a casserole dish not a lobster shell. It had more whole mushrooms (not even sliced) then lobster. The lobster itself was kind of mushy and not the right texture. The creame sause was not classic Thermidor. The snapper was heavilly breaded and just ok. Both dishes came with tasteless vegetabe medly and dry tasteless mashed potatoes.
I should have ordered the special which was Hogfish and looked good. Ended with a decent Creme brulee and coffee. In closing, over priced and just OK.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA+One of the best meals my partner and I have had in a long time!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMKeep the snapper replace the sidesThe snapper was really great but I wasn't impressed with the sides. We had a nice table overlooking the yachts which made it very pleasurable.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWell worth the costExcellent food and great views of the Key West Harbor.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMromantic dinner for twoabsolutely enjoyable dinner, i had lobster and croissant appetizer and my bf had shrimp cocktail which both where great.

Always great food & great service. Excellent atmosphere.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfully DinnerWe absolutely loved our dinner. Everyone ordered something different & nobody was disappointed. The steak & lobster to the sea bass were done to perfection. If ever in Key West we would recommend this restaurant for sure!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFreshest seafood in key west!Service was knowledgeable and outstanding although non-obtrusive which is a difficult feat to pull off.
Excellent seafood, very fresh - right off the pier! Lovely setting. Downstairs is a regular bar and oyster/raw seafood bar. Wonderful. Upstairs is an elegant setting. We did both.
I loved this place and will definitely go back!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service!!!My husband & I had a really nice evening here. The food was delicious. We started out with Tuna Tataki....it was awesome! I could've had 6 orders of it for dinner! Instead I had lobster w/ homemade pasta. Unfortunately it was a bit disappointing, just a bit though. The pasta was delicious, the amount of lobster was abundance, but the lobster itself was just a bit tough. Wish it was more tender.... My husband had a 10oz Filet Mignon Bearnaise. He loved it!! He said it was cooked to perfection. We also shared some sort of chocolate dessert & it was chocolatey. The list of wine was endless, but we managed to find a delicious bottle of Burgundy. Service was top notch. Thanks!!1/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
