AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Unlike the cute little cottages in town, A&B is on the waterfront overlooking the docks at the west end of Simonton Street. It’s like two restaurants in one: Upstairs at A&B’s the menu runs to gourmet (in preparation and price) with steaks and Maine lobster. Downstairs, the prices and meals are less lofty. If you’re not familiar with Florida’s spiny lobster (which is actually an oceanic crawfish), you owe it to yourself to try one, and Alonzo’s serves it up fresh off the docks out front. While Alonzo’s offers multiple preparations, the fresh lobster pasta, with Florida lobster sauted with mushrooms, shallots, andouille sausage and goat cheese in a tomato cream sauce, is divine. There’s a cigar and wine bar, as well, and if the weather’s pleasant, get a table on the second-floor deck overlooking Key West Bight.

  Great local...on is ok...service tends to be overwhelmed even curt at times. They rush you through to turn tables and you feel it. lovely dining room and separate lounge with big comfy leather chairs....have a drink there and dine elsewhere....   Read More

  Maybe it was just an off night but I have had better food and service at a fast food resteraunt. We was seated right away but it took at least 10 minutes before we received out drinks. My wife did like her crabcakes, but I ordered main lobster at $30 a pound. It was at room tempeture at best it had no flavor. Our waitress never came back to check on us our drinks where never refilled. Like I said maybe it was an off night but I would not recommend it....   Read More
