We tried scallops with asparagus and tomato mozzarella plate for appetizers. This was the preview to a great dinner to start. For dinner we ordered sea bass, grouper oscar, Florida lobster, tuna steak and fettuccine with shrimp. Everyone was extremely pleased with our food.

We were lucky to be at A&B during the spiny lobster season, which ends in March. The place is large and a bit noisy, but not obnoxiously so. We ate inside, since the wind curtains were drawn on the outside area, making it not very...More
