    This is one of the best restaurants in Key West! Food was superb and service impeccable. Well worth the cost for the ambiance of overlooking the marina and enjoying a beautiful dining experience in this wonderful city. I look forward to going there again!

    We spent 6 glorious days in Key West and the last night we reserved for A&B Lobster House. We are still talking about our meals! I had the lobster risotto & my man had the chef’s special grouper. The meals were unbelievable, the bomb diggity, lick your plate clean and not even feel embarrassed about it. The service was too notch, we never had an empty glass of drinks, we never had to ask for anything additional. We will definitely make this a required dining experience the next time we are in town. And, most importantly, that have a number of gluten free meal options!!!!

    Aweful experience. Service was slow and lackluster. Food was bland and overpriced. Manager was extremely rude, uncaring and tried to rush us in and out. Will never go back to this restaurant and advise everyone not to dine here! There are so many cheaper and better tasting alternatives.

    Just another overpriced restaurant. There is zero value to this place. I'm most disturbed by how on every item on my check the price charged was several dollars above the menu pricing! Absolute theft. Appetizer $14 menu and $18 check, various Burbon's 10, 13, 14 menu but $15, $17, $18 check, They know it and allow this to happen to a customer already paying $45 per entre.

    This was our second time at A & B and unfortunately, aside from a knowledgeable and friendly waiter it didn’t live up to our first experience. Wanted to love every bite like last time but each dish was just a little disappointing. Lacking in flavor for some dishes or overpowering in others. Key Lime Martini is on point though!

    Went here on our last night in Key West! The venue looked nice, situated in the water! Our waiter Chad was very nice and attentive. We ordered the lobster bisque soup which was ok. We ordered two lobster dishes and a surf and turf dish. All of the lobsters were tough and tasteless. The filet was good. I think we had high expectations of this place and honestly they fell very short!

    Our waiter was fantastic! Wish we could say the same about our Lobster. We had the Lobster Risotto and the Lobster with Crap Cake, Asparagus and Rice. The lobster was extremely tough and a bit rubbery. Hardly fresh. For the price, choose elsewhere.
