My fiancé and I ate here on our last night in Key West. We were seated outside overlooking the harbor, which was great for us because we enjoyed listening and watching the locals go about their business. However the couple next to us complained about the ship docked below us that playing Aerosmith. *Please understand that the restaurant does play... More

I have eaten at some extremely high end restaurants and I appreciate the fine dining experience. I would agree with the other reviewers that it was a casual atmosphere and fine dining combined. Our party ate outside on the covered deck and the view of the dock was very nice. I had the sea scallops(AMAZING!!!) and my husband had fish(I... More

My wife has the house-favorite Lobster Tango Mango and she thought it was excellent; perfectly prepared. I tried the hogfish special with shrimp and also found it to be delicious.

We enjoy coming to the A & B lobster house when we are down in the Keys. The Lobster...of course! The surf and turf is very good. Keep in mind that sides are a la carte. It can get pricey. Top notch service! Great place for older kids and adults. Amazing food!! They are only open for dinner.

$$$ but worth it. One of the best meals in Key West. Great service, waiter was a comedian and very attentive. Sat outside and enjoyed the marina view and ocean breeze. Food was delicious. Loved the lounge/bar...throwback to the Rat Pack days.

Everything was perfect! We came here the evening after our wedding with some friends in town and had an amazing dinner here. There were 7 of us total and every person loved their appetizers, entrees & desserts. I was surprised to see how slow it was in the dining room but the service was extremely quick & efficient. The view... More

If you choose to eat at this restaurant, do not pay by credit card. This was the only establishment where I used my credit card as we were getting low on cash. I received a call from my credit card company today telling me that my information was stolen. Several thousand dollars in charges. I will admit it is my... More

My husband and I held our wedding reception here. The food was delicious and the staff was very professional. It was also very reasonably priced for what we got. Our guests are still raving about it. Thanks A and B!
