Wish I could call out our server for outstanding service, but he didn't offer his name. BUT, he was fantastic. Managed to get reservations for 7:15 for 4 of us ... called at 2 this afternoon. The decor and surroundings are pretty and relaxing. It was a little difficult to locate the entrance, but it was dark outside and we... More

Large restaurant where we visited for dinner as I was especially looking forward to trying their lobster. My husband ordered a steak and I ordered lobster with crab and a sauce. when it was served the dish seemed to have an enormous amount of food on it, partly because the lobster tail had been taken out and placed on top...

We had a fantastic meal at the A&B Lobster House. Interesting that none of us actually had the lobster tail, but we all had excellent seafood dinners. Delightful atmosphere and attentive wait staff!

This was our best meal of our trip! Absolutely perfect! We all had lobster (in several different ways) and all four of us loved our meals. And the bananas foster for dessert was heavenly. The ambience is lovely though they did have to have the plastic sheeting down on the outside porch area due to the wind. Can't say enough... More

We went for dinner when the Christmas boat parade was about to take place. We had a great table on the outdoor balcony for a great view of the boats. We ordered the lobster, it was good but the sides were a little weak for a restaurant of this caliber. My wife had the filet mignon, it was cooked right... More

They don't call it a lobster house for nothing! My husband and I both ordered the lobster tails oscar style. They were outstanding. I'm surprised the restaurant was so empty on a busy weekend. The food was superb and the wine selections were great.

This place was the perfect stop for lobster. We had amazing appetizers (bisque and scallops) and then the lobster dishes were all wonderful. In my opinion, considering they were all local, it was a bit overpriced. But if you're not worried about spending, then I would definitely recommend this place. Cocktails were good too!

We almost passed on this place thinking it would be an overpriced tourist trap. So glad we didn't and we went back the next night. Everyone enjoyed their ribeye steaks, I had some sort of lobster dish that was delicious. The second night we got the stone crab claw appetizers. It was 30 bucks a claw but I just had... More
