A and B Lobster House Key West
A & B Lobster House is a wonderful fine dining seafood restaurant. The location is perfect, right off the marina. They have tables available outside on the deck that come with a stunning view of the water. I highly recommend the oysters Rockefeller. I love oysters. Everyone raved about how delicious these were. The scallops are also very good. They melt in your mouth. Their seafood was fresh and cooked to perfection. Their lobster pasta has a creamy tomato sauce and goat cheese with sausage. It is very flavorful.
There menu includes items such as appetizers of shrimp cocktail, summer salad, lobster medallions, fried seafood platter and escargot. They take care of the little details, such as serving butter that is in the shape of an A & B. Another nice detail is the caviar garnish that is included with some meals. Main meals include lobster thermidor, lobster bisque, crab, fillet mignon, stuffed shrimp, oysters, clams, scallops, red snapper, seared tuna, lobster pasta, and shrimp pasta, just to name a few. For dessert I would recommend the key lime pie. The creme brulee is also very good. They also offer a chocolate cake. Although, I have never personally had it, I have heard it is one of the best if not the best chocolate cake ever.
It is a fairly pricey restaurant, however their prices were in the same range as other seafood restaurants in the area serving good surf and turf. Considering it is an upscale fine dining experience, it is reasonably priced. They do offer early bird prices of any starter before 6:30 p.m. During this time you can get any starter for half price. It is definitely a fine dining luxurious experience. If you want an upscale nice night out with that someone special, this is the place for you.
The portions of good sized, the food is excellent, and the wait staff are very helpful and accommodating. If you are ever in the Key West area and are looking for a romantic evening or just a place to relax and enjoy seafood while enjoying a beautiful view, the A & B Lobster House is the place for you! It is an overall great experience!
