Wonderful experience

We went here for our first night in Key West. We didn't have any idea of good places to eat. We were just walking around looking at menus. This place is wonderful. The staff was very attentive; I never had an empty drink. The food and service is amazing. The steak and lobster melted in our mouths... read more

Fresh and good seafood! One of the better seafood restaurants I've been to in a while. Located next to a marina, and water. Casual attire appropriate.

From the moment you arrive you feel great, the little hostess, Nikki I think is such a nice kid! We had a wonderful romantic dinner overlooking the harbor. Wait staff were very well trained. If you only go out for one nice dinner in KW, go here

We visited A&B in July on a whim, had no preconceived ideas, no recommendations, just walked in. It was fabulous! The service was impeccable, the food was terrific! Crab cakes were delish, the lobster and crab Oscar was over the top! Atmosphere was great, view was wonderful. I would definitely recommend and will visit again!!!

After being married at Ft. Zachary, we headed to A & B for a romantic dinner. The view from upstairs was wonderful. There was a nice breeze coming from the water and a great spot to enjoy the sunset. Dinner was amazing. We were offered complimentary champagne as soon as we were seated. Our waitress was just wonderful. We chose... More

Way overrated. Lobster was so bland and the rice was over cooked. Conch fish special is just a way to make guests think you are getting something special. A local at the bar said the restaurant used to be good.. but not anymore.

Tuesday, July 28, 2015. My wife had the Grouper w Crab Oscar and I had the Lobster with Crab Oscar. Both dishes came out lukewarm, surprising since we were there when the fine dining section opened at 6pm. It was not crowded. My lobster was a little tough. Being from Maryland I know fresh jumbo crab when I taste it,... More
