We had late dinner here on a Monday night, forgive me for thinking it but given the name of the place is Lobster House I was most disappointed when told they had run out of whole lobster. Had I'd not already ordered drinks and a bottle of wine, and bread was already on the table I think I would've walked... More

Can't ever go wrong here. This place has been around a long time. And in Key West you don't stick around long at all if you have lousy food and service.

A &B is an upscale restaurant, upstairs from a more casual restaurant in the marina. The decor is elegant with air conditioning and views of the boats and harbor. We were seated as requested near a window. The wine list was very extensive with tasting notes. We were getting sea food so got a Sonoma Chardonnay which was lovely. The... More

This is actually two restaurants in one. Downstairs is more casual and upstairs (our choice) is for a more formal experience. We selected outside seating which was a second floor balcony overlooking the marina. The service was outstanding. The drink menu was extensive. I got a Mohito Martini which didn't disappoint. They offered several specials involving fresh catch items. Everything... More

we had a brunch with seafood and burgers and toddies and enjoyed them all. Very clean and well managed by staff, more so than most Key West establishments we visited.

Every time we stay at the Galleon Marina we look forward to a meal here. The food, service and atmosphere are very pleasant. Fish specials never disappoint.

This restaurant was suggested to us for Maine Lobster dinner. Definitely $$$$$! Enjoyed our dinners but could have done with out the expense.(to be expected for Maine lobster in Florida) Afterwards we walked along the pier and peered into the beautiful yachts and boats moored, Nice ambiance also romantic for couples.

Went to A&B for my birthday and was not disappointed. We were there during Lobster Fest and of court Lobster was on all menus of all restaurants. A&B had them all beat with the best lobster hands down, along with the Oysters Rockefeller, which was to die for. The servers were attentive but not in your face and the location... More

Service was top notch by our waiter Luther. He was excellent. Our dinner was outstanding and everything was cooked to perfection. The scallops were so tasty and the view from the outside porch was great. We celebrated my husbands birthday and could not have asked for a better dinner. Luther was the best!! He made the dinner even better.
