A&B Lobster House Ratings and Reviews
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.
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!
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.
Went for anniversary dinner. Dinner was outstanding we both had fish dishes, and were cooked to perfection. We ordered a dessert brûlée which had happy anniversary chocolate on top. I would have given it 5 Stars for ambiance out on the porch over the water, but it was windy and they had to have the plastic down, no fault of theirs- and would be 5 Stars if we had a view too on a less windy evening. Will definitely be back.
We were on a weekend girls trip that my friends and i do annual. When i made the reservation, i specifically noted that we were celebrating a birthday that evening... hoping they would do something a little special, but nothing was mentioned or done... i was disappointed in that, matter. Our waiter was wonderful and did an outstanding job, i don’t blame him seeing as he isn’t the one that sees the reservation.
We chose A&B for a business dinner with clients , our experience was nothing short of perfect .
We were greeted and seated within seconds . Our server for the night was Luther. He is one of the main reasons for this review , We love him !!! He helped us choose wine and introduced us to the new items on the menu (which we loved) He took such good care of us , checked in often to see if we were happy or needed anything . The entire experience at A&B including the amazing food was A+,
we will be back !!!
Had a wonderful lobster Oscar meal with client.
Shaina the host was very friendly and helped us to great seats and came by to check to see how we were doing. Jen our waitress was fantastic. Also stopped at the bar and had a couple of martinis. Great all around service and food.
One of our favorite spots of all time!! The staff is outstanding and make you feel so at home. Love the escargot, lobster bisque and caesar salad and save room for the amazing bananas foster. Great spot for romantic evening but order slowly if you are not in a hurry. Food comes out very quickly.
The appetizers, a salad and 3 soups, were brought out almost immediately after ordering. Our party of 4 was still having a drink before dinner.
The food was over done and did not have much taste. It wasn't worth 1/3 of the price they charged. On a scale of 1 to 10
I would rate this place a 1. It was an absolute tourist trap. Never again. A definite for the "must miss" list.
We have been to A&B many times,all excellent.This last time though one main dish..a fish was severely under cooked..almost raw.We will likely go back..give them another try.Our waiter ,Mark ,handled the situation like a professional..so that eased the ruined experience.
A & B does steak and lobster right. My wife and I were treated to top shelf service at an excellent restaurant that never disappoints. The oyster's rockefeller are the best on the island, and the steak and lobster thermidor were everything you'd want in those dishes. A nice rose recc'd by our server was just right, and it was so nice not to be rushed out, even though we were the last ones to close the place, and it was a little cold out.
Traditional at its best, we will be back again as soon as we can get back down to Key West.
Extraordinary service, extraordinary fresh sea food and great ambience can always be counted on at A&B. I've been dining at this restaurant for 5+ years and I have never been disappointed and our dinner this past Friday night was no exception. Just outstanding!
