The food was ok. I got a lobster bake and had to ask for a towel to clean up after. I feel like that should have been an automatic after I was finished. The wait staff was not friendly and was throwing shade at other staff.

Restaurant was clean and wait staff was friendly. Food, however, was not what I expected from a Key West establishment as the risotto was very bland and the side dishes were average at best. With so many fantastic restaurants serving fresh sea food on KW, I would be hard pressed to visit A&B again.

The atmosphere was very nice but the dishes were more of a show then something I would rave about. My lobster was smal. Probably around 6 oz and it was over cooked. My wife’s dish was a nicer portion of a lobster tale with crab meat but the lobster was soft and mushy. So the excitement of going here was pretty much a let down for my wife’s Birthday and that we couldn’t wait to have the lobster. Oh well

Later dining to follow an event (sunset cruise) that was suggested by a lodge we were staying. I and my wife both had the lobster thermidor. It was the best I'd ever had. The service was excellent and the ambiance was nice.

We had a party of 6. We were tightly fit into a corner so it felt cramped, especially for the person in the corner with a wall to her back and side. But the food well then made up for any small inconvenience of having to get up for anyone on that side to get out. There was a large loud and drunk party at a table right next to us. Our server was serving them too, so it was sometimes hard to get her attention or for her to hear us. But the other staff kept our water glasses filled and removed our empty plates, and she checked on us enough to make sure we had what we needed. Everyone’s food was wonderful. From the appetizers (yummy lobster bisque, perfectly cooked pink shrimp cocktails and a BLT wedge) to the main entrees (two of us had lobster Oscar, one had the butter lobster, one had the surf and turf, and two had the fish special), it was all exceptional. Other than a slightly undercooked scallop, which was quickly replaced, there was nothing to complain about. The shared desserts of key lime pie, bananas fosters (about the best I have ever had) and creme brulee, were also fantastic. The bread was also great. It was an expensive meal, but we did up right for our last night in Key West. Highly recommend.

Everything was top shelf except our waiter was kinda busy, especially with a larger table next to us. we waited a bit too long. We had hoped to get out to see the sunset but we waited a long time for our check. He was very efficient and friendly beyond the time lag.

This was our first time visiting while vacationing in the Keys! The food was magnificent and the view was breathtaking (we dined outside)! We will definitely be back and have already planned to return to this restaurant for my parent’s 50th Anniversary next year!! Loved every part of it!!!

The food was delicious and our waiter was efficient, professional and friendly.
The issue we had was that we specifically requested ‘one of your best tables overlooking the water with a view of the sunset’ because it was my spouse’s birthday. No one got back to us to tell us that there were NO VIEWS of the sunset from this restaurant! Also, when we did arrive, there were multiple tables available outside but we were placed in a table right next to the door to the inside dining area and a view of the hotel next door. It was very disappointing. The porch itself was also nothing special. Definitely not romantic at all. Overall, it was just an ok night...not a special night.

Great service, great location, the food was awesome. id i had to complain the stone crab claw was OVERPRICED for what you get. The fish special of the day (snapper) was GREAT as was the scallops and lobster soup. Would highly recommend. Prices are high BUT well worth it. Key lime pie and the coffee was a great way to finish off the meal.

Great old style atmosphere. Great dark wood bar with a solid lounge singer doing some traditional Las Vegas style.
Sat outside looking over the boats at dock.
Good wine list. Service good. Class place.

I suggest you keep it simple and enjoy the fresh seafood.

Extensive wine list. My husband ordered the special sea bass and the fish was mushy. I ordered the grouper Oscar and found it lacked flavor. The salads were average and the appetizer lobster and escargot was also just ok. Expensive dinner but left feeling very disappointed. Will not return to this restaurant
