Great seafood! Lobster is to die for! Service is outstanding. Ask for Luther he is the best waiter ever!
Awesome service. Luther was terrific - very friendly and super helpful. Food was very average. The Florida lobster and octopus paella had a lot of the seafood over cooked in it - very chewy / dry depending on the seafood item in question - also very small portions of lobster and octopus (dish title) for almost $50 for the entree. A lot of the restaurants we went to close by gave larger portions of seafood and seemed fresher and better cooked for similar prices. Great ambiance and service which definitely more than saved the evening. The shrimp cocktail as an app was great and bananas foster was very good at the end.
Wonderful dinner, everything was perfect. Our server, Jennnifer was great and helpful with suggestions, along with the other servers. Love the old school ambiance in the lounge!
Our server Nick was fantastic!!
Food and service excellent! Would go again for a special occasion.
Superb in every respect. Outstanding food (filet & lobster, lobster & wild mushroom risotto) was exceeded only by impeccable service. Nice view of the harbor enhances the overall experience.
The whole dining experience was fantastic. We went there as a party of 6. All loved their meals. Our server Luther made it a great night.
The three of us thoroughly enjoyed our lobster and grouper dishes! Great service and food!
Great food- had the special (hogfish) and pink shrimp- so delicious! Luther was our server and did a great job. We celebrated a birthday and they did a nice surprise dessert!
I read in many reviews the service was not great, as was the case with our waiter Philip. The food was fantastic! Had chowder and lobster/escargot for apps, lobster oscar & mahi for dinner finished with bananas fosters. Personalized service for the cost, dont expect it. I didn't see any waiters/waitresses too outgoing.
A beautiful restaurant in a perfect setting. Food was very good, but a little overpriced considering portion size/content. (They must make amazing margins). Service was so/so. Our waiter was a nice guy but not very attentive. I think I would have felt better about the prices had the service been amazing. Overall I would eat here again and I would say it’s worth trying for anyone who likes lobster:
Great food. Great service. Awesome place for that special night out.
We were disappointed in the Gulf Lobster as we like local fish. We should have done Grouper or Snapper as the lobster was a bit under-cooked and lacked the flavor of the New England variety. All else was great. Good location and service was good , if harried do to large parties.
Overall we were not displeased. We just should have ordered something else.
Service was ok not the best but I guess it is the keys.
Food was ok I’ve had better but I’ve also had way worse.
The location was amazing
Our waiter, Luther, one of the best waiters ever!!! He was congenial, informative, low key charming and real !!!! Hold onto him!
It was wonderful!!!
Nice atmosphere but the menu is somewhat tired and outdated. Our waiter never told us his name and it was obvious he could care less about his work.
service was great food was very good with the exception of some of the dishes needed more seasoning, however overall it was a very good dining experience at an old established Key West location
Delicious!! Wonderful experience as always!
We are frequent locals that love A&B LOBSTER.service and food are wonderful. Atmosphere is wonderful.
Fabulous way to spend Mother’s Day!
Celebration dinner. Well taken care of by everyone there. Must get the ahi.
DJ, our server, was excellent as usual. Food was exceptional! Ambiance overlooking the marina amazing.
This is one of our favorite restaurants in Key West! We have been coming to Key West almost every year since our honeymoon over 27 years ago. We found this restaurant many years ago and it is a must on our trip. Food is just wonderful. A very romantic and the waiters and waitresses have always been great. We always get a water view at sunset. Watching the boats come in is very relaxing and enjoyable. We usually try to eat there at least twice on our trips. Can't wait until next year.
Visiting Key West. Meal was delicious- location great! Can’t wait to go back sometime.
Wonderful atmosphere, delicious food, and a great waiter--Luther! Highly recommend!!
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
Very nice restaurant. Wonderful dinner. Good service.
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.
Great location overlooking the Bight if you are seated on the veranda, great waiter, great food. Not pretentious but good.
Amazing food and wine, had a great time!
They made my birthday extra special especially our waiter Luther.
A last minute reservation but treated as if we’d been on the books for months. Wonderful all around and a gorgeous view of a full moon, too. We enjoyed every bite. Thank you!
excellent food, attentive service. Good cocktails "rightly loaded"
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.
Excelente comida y excelente atención. La vista a la marina, única!
