Overall this is a nice place, but not necessarily for a special occasion like a birthday. I expected a little more than just a sparkler (most places offer a complimentary desert) and I guess they don't read the remarks when making a reservation because they didn't seem to know that I mentioned it there. My wife did enjoy the lobster and it was served shelled as we requested. I ordered the Grilled Fillet Mignon and for some reason they served me the Grilled Rib Eye! I should have returned it but it did look good so in the interest of time I decided to have it instead. That was a mistake, I have had much better at a more reasonable cost! I am going to recommend A&B Lobster House for the seafood but not for their Land menu because of what I was served!

Fantastic seafood in a wonderful atmosphere, overlooking the Key West Bight. Prices are high, be prepared to ask what the 'market price' items go for. Great for that special evening.

All good especially the service. Had the risotto. Excelent. Great bottle of riesling priced well. Lobster Bisque was very good. Beef Carpaccio was also tasty. If your choosing between Latatudes and A&B, this is the place hands down.

Very nice seafood house. Great to sit inside or outside (we sat inside because we were hot but the walls are lined with windows, so you get a nice view of the water from the inside too). Excellent service and great drinks.

Dragana is, hands down, the best server I’ve had in all my travels! And I’ve traveled the world!! Thank you for having her as part of your team! Please give Dragana my warm regards and please keep her on your team. I know she is such a blessing in the workplace! My partner and I agreed that her service came from a genuine place and we truly enjoyed her energy.

Our waiter Stephen did an outstanding job. The surf and turf was A+. We had a couple of bottles of a very nice Malbec that was reasonably priced. A&B has made a considerable effort to make for a safe and enjoyable dining experience.

Great for and service, but the table was sitting right near a bright blue light. The owners obviously don't know that the visuals are a part of the dining experience. My plate was a melange of purples and blues. Really, a shame.

It was my husband’s 50th. birthday, although the food was enjoyable, we were disappointed that a “lobster” house ran out of lobster, and was told by our server that they only had four(4) lobsters for the day. Unfortunately, that’s what my husband wanted to order and why we even choose the restaurant.

Great place. Waiter was awesome and very helpful. We ordered a steak and lobster dish. Steak was ordered well done- had burnt edges, but still good flavor after cutting away those pieces. The lobster however was amazing! Will return on our next trip to Key West.

We told them it was our anniversary when we reserved on open table but they didn’t acknowledge it. We saw another waiter celebrate someone’s birthday at the table across from us, so I was a little disappointed. Otherwise, our dinner was absolutely delicious. We went at 6:30 so the restaurant was almost too quiet/empty for me.

Awesome location on the harbor. Beautiful scenery, especially from the outside dining tables. Awesome food. Great service, with a (covered) smile.

As a side note, our table was a 2 top at the end of the porch and there was no fan overhead...during the hottest days they should just not seat anyone there. It was miserably hot. They would have moved us inside had we asked, but we chose to stick it out. I’m certain the experience would have been better at any of the other outside tables as they all had overhead fans. Just a little air movement would have been awesome.
