The lobster, scallops and shrimp special was very good! The pier-view seating was an added bonus. Service was equally as good!

Average restaurant along the pier. Staff was not very friendly. Alittle over priced for the amount of food. Would not eat there again. Great views of the marina and boats.

Friends who live in Key West took us to A&B for cocktails and dinner. The restaurant has a beautiful setting and the food did not disappoint. Our friends raved about A&B as a terrific happy hour location.

We started with an amazing dark & stormy martini in their cocktail bar. I then went for the seabass special which was delicious, my partner had the steak which was also very good.

We didn't notice much, but our server, Luther, noticed there was a slight rock to our table which he... More

We had dinner here two weeks ago. While it is an expensive restaurant, it is well worth the money. It was incredible. My son and I each ordered a Florida lobster tail and the were fantastic. My wife had the hogfish special that was fantastic. Spend the money, dress up and go. You won't be disappointed.
