We've been dining here for years! The food (and martinis) are ALWAYS top notch! It doesn't matter where you're seated - outside is waterfront and beautiful while the inside wood is fabulous! My only complaint is we ate here after sunset last Friday (March 18th) and they were out of Stone Crab claws! Maybe I'll have better luck next time...

Great fresh sea food and happy hour in Key West. Seat in doors or along the ocean board walk. Can go wrong

We all had the lobster, three different ways, amazing. Great staff with a menu that has a good variety, but seafood is where it's at.

We had a variety of things from the menu from steak to lobster. Our main meals we good portions somewhat small. We ordered a wedge salad, do not waste your time incredibly overpriced for the size and lettuce was not fresh. I actually would have given this review 3 stars but our waiter was amazing!!!!!!

Found this place for lunch. Ordered Alaskan King Crab legs & hubby got Lobster. Excellent choice. Both were market price but we got what we paid for. It was wonderfully cooked and tasted great. The Key Lime Pie was smooth and tasty. A little more expensive but well worth it. Service was great.

Very expensive for the quality of food you get. I was quite disappointed with a $200 bill for a sub-par dinner that I could have made better at home. Lobster therm-adore...don't waste your money. And my friends steak was over cooked, and the veggies had seen better days. The martini's however were very very good!!! Only thing that got me... More

Am I dreaming? A cigar lounge upstairs at a lobster house? Old Fashioned, Surf & Turf and a cigar? What a trifecta!

We went there for a Nice Dinner, I had Stone Crabs, they were really good, and scallops, the prices are expensive but damn! Is worth it! You must visit A&B when you come to Key West

This was our only fine dining place we ate at during our trip. Service was great and food was great. I got the lobster bisque and the Grouper Oscar. I don't typically like white fish but the Grouper was incredible and so was the lobster bisque. Well worth the price.

Thank Hg44ever
