Happy hour at Alonso's was great.

Great happy hour downstairs from A & B Lobster House. Everything on the left side of the menu is half off from 3pm- 6pm. Drinks were half price too. Seafood was fabulous. Service was great! Our waitress was excellent. We would definitely return!

We almost always do dinner at this restaurant. We love sitting on the porch in the harbour watching the boats come in and out and the food is always great.

We were a bit hesitant to visit because of the mixed reviews (real foodies not wanting a tourist trap, dining with a child) , but so glad we did. The food was delicious, perfectly prepared and service was excellent. Sourdough bread was exceptional. Lobster dishes were all perfectly prepared, coconut rice was a lovely accompaniment. Great wine list... Breeze made... More

Wonderful! Superb service, gorgeous view, and probably the best snapper I have ever eaten. While I would have adored eating on the deck, my family appreciated the cool reprieve of the interior space. I was only disappointed that I couldn't try the dessert menu (too full!) I felt this spot really represents the broad mix that is key west, between... More

We saw the restaurant and decided we had to go (A & B are our initials). We were not disappointed; the food and service were all very good - our server was very helpful and informed. Prices are high, but you are paying for location.

The best lobster ever. I don't think I've ever seen a lobster larger and certainly not more delicious. If you want lobster, here's your place.

Main highlight is definitely the view as the restaurant sits about Key West's busy harbour. If you eat anything, go for the lobster - guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
