We come to Key West and I am always hesitant to try something new. A&B Lobster House was not what I expected, at all. It was better. The inside of the restaurant was very pleasant and classy looking. We ended up sitting on the front porch facing the pier and water. It was windy so the plastic shades were pulled, made sense but it would have been even nicer if the weather had cooperated. Our waiter - DJ was excellent from start to finish. I would gladly ask to have him serve us again - top notch. So if you are thinking this is going to me your average Lobster place with corn on the cob, cole-slaw and corn bread - think again. I ordered the seared scallops with sweet cream corn and pollenta cakes. Hands down - 5 stars. The scallops were cooked to perfection. The dish was so well done and I savored every bite to the very end. My appetizer was the lobster bisque and although it was not the best I ever tasted, it was up there, very good! There were tiny chunks of lobster in it and the flavor was very nice. My husband had the mixed green salad with crab cakes and thought everything was very well done. Overall I would highly recommend trying this place. There are many to pick from, but our meal and experience this time was excellent! Thank you!!
I had the prime rib and my wife had the scallops. Both were great. Finally also got around to trying the Key West ale it was great too!
Server was arrogant, rude, patronizing, we almost walked out when he lashed on our kid who was playing with his napkin and inadvertedly touch the back of the gentleman at the next table. I told him not to speak to my son this way, and he gave us to someone else.
Our second trip to this place in three days. Look forward to our next trip the Key West and a visit To A & B!
Amazing food and drink! Not to be missed!
We go here whenever in Key West. Great seafood. Not too fancy. Cool jazz bar for after dinner. Highly recommend it
This was the second time we chose to eat at A&B for 2 different trips. We have put it on our 'must do' list while in Key West. The menu offers something for everyone. The staff was very friendly and attentive. We love A&B.
Wonderful evening enjoyed with friends. Highly recommend.
EXCELLENT food & Service!! A must go to when in Key West- simply the best!!!
We have dined at A&B a few times. This time left us a bit disappointed. Our waitress was less than helpful. We had to ask for a wine list and she had no input other than it's good. We ordered two bottles of wine. The food was okay. Our Strip steak was quite tough for Medium rare.
The experience was less than comfortable and for 220.00 it should have been better.
Valentines Dinner date and what a great surprise. Refered by a friend who dined here last week. Arrived about 30 min early so went downstairs and had some of the sweetest and freshest oysters ever. Dinner service by Casey was excellent. I had the best lobster and mushroom risotto and my wife loved her perfect crab cakes. Evening topped off with Bananas Foster. Can’t forget a great wine list. Coming back Friday night!
It was our anniversary of 37 years of marriage. I was expecting some acknowledgement that we were celebrating a major event! We didn't.
Wish we could have been seated outside.
We love having dinner at A&B on every visit to Key West. Consistently excellent.
Wonderful food. Erica was a fantastic server.
Absolutely Fabulous. The Food, service we're perfect. Philip is amazing, true gentleman.
Really a must visit.
I wish people would dress for a visit to a restaurant of this quality. I get it... it's Key West but come on.
Maybe a nice collared shirt, nice shorts - I don't need to see Men's feet when I'm eating.
I swim bare footed - I where big boy shoes when I take my Wife on a date.
Our dinners ( both had Caribbean lobster tails) were excellent. We arrived 30 minutes before our reservation so we had to sit inside (the fans made us feel pretty cold on the inside ). Our waiter was wonderful. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.
This was our 2nd visit to A&B! The first time was about five years ago when a tropical evening thunderstorm resulted in us looking for shelter. This was a lucky find then and we looked forward to our next visit when we returned to Key West. Everything was top notch as we remembered it. The atmosphere, the service and the food set this establishment above most dining experiences. If your looking for a high end all around experience, visit the A&B Lobsterhouse during your Key West visit.
We were in Key West with some friends for a long weekend. Looking for a good meal. Saw this on line, made a reservation and went. Had a really good surf and turf and my wife also got a really great strip steak. Very good. A little pricey, but the food was good. Good time. Good service.
