    An excellent meal was had during our recent visit. We had the mushroom/escargot for appetizer which was delicious and Lobster Crab Oscar which was excellent. The ambiance was relaxed but semi casual. Then service was quite good but a bit misleading on the Hollandaise NOT being homemade. All in all, man excellent meal and well worth the visit.

    So I was hoping for an amazing experience but it was just so-so. I ordered the Carribean Lobster tail and it had an ammonia taste and sent it back. The Tuna steak was okay at best. The waiter Casey was nice but they seemed under staffed.

    This place was below average to be honest. First off, the service was slow. It took an hour to get our appetizers, which were 5 pieces of shrimp and 6 oysters? In all, we were in there over 2 hours. The surf & turf, for $100 was nothing special. A small unseasoned filet, a chewy piece of lobster and mashed potatoes that were probably made from a package. Save yourself the $$$. Don’t try to eat fancy in Key West, you’re going to be disappointed.

    Pricey for the quality of the food. Our waiter had a condescending attitude and that is reflected by our rating. The key lime pie was not the best I've ever had...Kermits was better. They seem to prioritize moving customers in and out , and not quality service or customer experience.

    We started out with a cocktail at Berlin’s speakeasy, then went to our reserved table, waterfront, outdoors. The grouper, Oscar, and the snapper were delicious!

    It was phenomenal. The food was amazing, service was excellent. The lobster Oscar stole the show. The crab meat was plentiful and delicious as was the lobster (Caribbean, not flown in from Maine). The beet salad to start was the perfect choice! The tropical cosmo was superb and finished off with the best key lime pie we have had in Key West. Wonderful experience.

    We celebrated my wife's 60th birthday at A&B Lobster House. If you want the best seafood in Key West, this is the place. It is pricey but well worth it. I highly recommend it as one of your culinary stops!

    Old school tremendous service - excellent from the moment we arrived. Our waiter was terrific. The key lime pie was the best I have ever had - absolutely go with it for dessert.
