IMO Lattitudes is nice but also a kind of special occassion place. Boat ride out there, dinner on the beach, torches. And, curiously, I've never been to the A&B. I do Alonzo's for a grilled or blackened fish platter.
We love A&B Lobster for a special dinner. If you go, get there before dark and request a table on the balcony.
I am a big fan of A&B Lobster House. I love the food and the outside tables on the front deck. The inside is nice too but just a bit cold feeling for me (atmosphere wise). Banana Cafe is getting really great reviews on the dinner menu and 915 has always been a favorite for me. BTW - both A&B and 915 were James Beard winners. I do not think you could go wrong with any of them. It just up to you and which menus sound good to you.
A&B and 915 are only open for dinner so maybe you could do one of the other ones for lunch.
A&B Also does happy hour specials on the appetizer side of the Menu, I have gone and just done that with drinks if you want a light bite early. I think for happy hour they are 1/2 price.
Latitudes on Sunset Key (free ferry ride for a meal) is no more expensive than BOs for lunch. The flaming torches are dimmed but it remains a pleasant beach lunch in a special location on real sand overlooking salt water.
The half price happy hour is at Alonzo's, not A&B. Alonzo's is the place downstairs from A&B. I like A&B and 915. Those would be my picks, but all 4 places would be great.
You all have done my job for me again - thanks :)
All Latitudes menus can be found here: www.westinsunsetkeycottages.com/latitudes
I think you'll find the prices are not just for special occasions, and they are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
In a very few weeks the new Latitudes will be open, and they will offer a small plates/tapas menu in addition to the other menus. So that will give another option, price-wise.

Damn, just looked at the lunch menu at latitudes and now have another "must-do".Edited: 24 March 2010, 17:14
Latitudes is out for me. They are booked through April 24th so that makes it easier for me to eliminate places. Thanks guys and maybe next time I go I will call early and book Latitudes as it did sound great! I leave April 11 and can't wait!
