A word from Kitchen on George
Kitchen on George is a dynamic part of Mobile’s vibrant local restaurant scene. The restaurants lunch, dinner and brunch menus change seasonally to focus on fresh, locally sourced and regional cuisine featuring fresh Gulf seafood. Located in the charming neighborhood of the Oakleigh Garden Historic District, the restaurant is also close to businesses, local attractions, and a few blocks from many downtown area hotels. Our friendly staff and professional chefs seek to provide guests with a dining experience you'll want to repeat again and again. We have a great selection of wines and cocktails, too! Try our Sunday Brunch, or join us Monday through Friday for our cocktail hour from 4 p.m -- 6 p.m. We're just 4 blocks off Government Street in the heart of Mobile.Continued

  • "This was my 2nd visit and was even more impressed with the place. Service was excellent; menu of foods was outstanding. Look forward to my next visit"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "The food was great! The staff (our waiter was amazing) handled our small group of seven with ease and was able to intuit when to give information. Thanks for a lovely meal. I only say it is noisy because the next table had tired children. Other reviewers may say there was noise because of our table! Lol!"

  • "Steak dish was a little salty, but overall the food was very good. Tempura Fried Okra is highly recommended."

  • "Our waiter William was so enthusiastic and his knowledge of the menu was outstanding,we eat there on a regular basis, and this time had a visitor from North Carolina , she loved the meal, the location and the staff, and asked to come back on her next visit. Altogether a great experiece"

  • "When researching where to eat in Mobile, Kitchen on George kept coming up. As ex-New Yorkers, we set our bar high for restaurants. We were not disappointed. This is an adult restaurant for people who want to dine. The menu was interesting with many options. The wine list was short but had many choices at a reasonable price, and the service very professional. The noise level allowed for conversation. If we are in Mobile again, we would go back."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Food was Fantastic... Service was great! The only drawback from the dining experience was the lack of privacy. I felt like I could hug the patron beside me. The tables are so close together. It was really difficult to hold a conversation. Everyone is competing to be heard. Overall... it was a great dining experience and I would go back.."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "This nice little gem of a restaurant is located in midtown Mobile in a quaint neighborhood. A teaching outlet for Virginia College Culinary school, the food and service is always top notch. Highly recommnended."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Kitchen on George was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend it! I found it on Trip Advisor as I had not been to Mobile for an overnight stay in years. I enjoyed everything I had. The only thing that I found unnecessary was the seasoning in the olive oil as the rest of the meal had so many wonderful flavors."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "This was our second time at Kitchen on George. We dined there around the same time last year as we were passing through to Florida. After our spectacular meal last year, we made sure to stop in again. It was again a delectable meal. Specifically, we tried the artichoke hearts, which had been fried in tempura batter. Delicious to share as they are rich. The tasso ham corn chowder was so good, my husband was tempted (though he did not), to take a piece of the dense bread and scrape the bowl with it. We again got the shrimp and grits (just like last time). We requested extra shrimp as we wanted a piece of shrimp with each bite of the grits. I am not a grits fan, but these are sooo good. The blackened grouper..excellent. We'll be back"

  • "It is nice to see that free standing, non chain owned places like this can be run efficiently and provide an excellent product. This is one of the best dining encounters I have experienced in Mobile."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We were smart to make reservations. Seated immediately. Waiter was very friendly and attentive. Tables are close to each other and the noise level was much higher than I would have liked. Appetizer was salmon on a bed of greens with pears and dried cranberries. Excellent choice. Main dish was Pontchartrain catch of the day (flounder). Enjoyed the dish but felt like the portion of fish was small. Had cheesecake for dessert and it was excellent. I plan to return and try something different."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Overall the experience was great. The only thing I would have liked to be different is how cramped I felt in the back section of the restaurant in the corner room. Once the room was filled with guests at the other tables it felt cramped."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "The food was wonderful, service great, and most of all we weren't rushed. We had a leisurely, relaxing dinner. I have traveled a lot, eaten in many fine restaurants and would rate this one as a true neighborhood gem."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "I thought the food was absolutely delicious. The small bowls on the left hand side of the menu were to die for--fried okra--out of this world--crawfish and squash--soo delicious-the shrimp and grits was a delicacy."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "My wife and I were looking in Mobile for a local place to eat while on our honeymoon. I stumbled upon this gem. I have not had as good of an eating experience from top to bottom than this place. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu. We got blackened shrimp and grits with goat cheese. That was the best shrimp dish I've ever had. If we ever venture back we will be overly ecstatic to have dinner there again"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "My fiance and I visited late on a Sunday. We found the restaurant mostly empty, but they were very friendly and accomodating of our reservation. We had the duck confit spring rolls which were tasty, but not memorable, and the blackened shrimp and grits for an appetizer. The grits were awesome with a goat cheese base, I don't even normally like grits. For our entree we shared the steak, and it was amazing. My fiance still talks about it days later. I think we will be back."

  • "Dining at Kitchen on George is a real treat! This time, I had Crawfish stuffed mirliton with Louisiana crawfish tails. Hello, where have you been all my life? Chef Carl Tilley never fails to disappoint, and we also tried the crab cakes, tempura okra, and oysters. We polished off these, with room for main courses including the fresh from the Gulf grouper. When these folks say they serve fresh seafood, they are not kidding! Dessert was also a treat of sumptuous bread pudding. But perhaps the true hallmark of this restaurant is the unique balance of service, ambiance and local neighborhood feel. Combined with food that never fails to excite the taste buds, this truly is both a neighborhood gem, and the best restaurant Mobile has to offer. WOW!"

  • "Kitchen on George is my restaurant dream! I love the location, I love the food and service, and I love that it is an adult dining experience! The small plates and menu choices always thrill me. Our service was spectacular. Only wish I could go every night!"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "The Gulf Coast is supposed to have good food, right? Wrong! Food in the south has been a big letdown. But Kitchen on George was so good that I thought I was eating in New York again. If you are not originally from the south, or know that there is more to food than BBQ and the deep fat fryer in a hole in the wall, then Kitchen on George is the place to go. Food and service are both excellent."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Kitchen on George was recommended to my wife and I by friends. We went and were not disappointed! From the Goat Cheese salad to the most tender and delishious steak, topped of with Creame Brûlée - the entire experience was great! The service was great and very friendly staff as well. Would definitely return, and soon."

  • "This is a great little restaurant, with a great menu of small and large plates. Good bar selection and nice wine list. Great date night spot."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Kitchen on George was awesome! Try the tempura fried okra and duck spring rolls. My mother's salmon was fantastic but my duck was undercooked and rubbery. Our server, Elizabeth, was a doll. Excellent service!"

  • "Great place. Very friendly. Chef personally brought me out cucumber sticks since I could not eat bread. "
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "The food was just as we expected it to be. It was delicious, served hot and had excellent flavored. I had the Jambalaya shrimp pasta and my wife had the salmon salad. We shared a duck confit spring roll, delicious. We both ordered deserts and thank goodness, the waitress forgot my order of creme brûlée, since my my wife could never had finished her chocolate chocolate cake. This was our second trip this year, both times were trips through Mobile. Do yourself a favor and enjoy this restaurant."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "We love this little neighborhood restaurant. The black and white photographs of old Mobile add to the warmth of tastefully done interior. The waitstaff is attentive and the food delicious. Great place for a special occasion or week night out. "

  • "I love the atmosphere at this restaurant, and the service was exceptional. We had dinner with another couple. We ordered 6 different items, and all were delicious! The Alabama goat cheese salad was my favorite. The glass of Rush Cabernet wine was notable. We shall return!!"

  • "20 years marks a milestone in any endeavor, however, for a wedding anniversary it is something pretty special. I had heard from several friends that this place was a great dinning experience and the staff was wonderful, however, the experience was that and more. It was quaint and private, but not to private because the dinners sitting around us shared in some way there excitement, and happiness to for our special day. The food was unique and the taste was exceptional. The atmosphere was conducive to good conversation as well as sharing a personal and private moment."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "We wanted a nice interesting place to take some friends and we were extremely pleased. Excellent concept restaurant utilizing culinary interns in the kitchen. We turned our table into a Tapas event and had 5 of the appetizers. Both the corn chowder and bisque-ish soups were good. Great environment and good service. Recommended whole heartedly!"
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Neighborhood gem! Excellent ambiance, service is attentive yet unobtrusive. Food was superb, delicate blending of herbs and seasonings with local products works wonderfully. Deserts are to die for and the cheesecake with fresh strawberries was the best I have had in my 73 years. Especially love the "small" plate options which is just the right amount for "normal" eaters and allows choices to share with companions the wonderful variety. Prices are very reasonable for the quality. Will definitely be back next time I am in town. Having the chef visit the table was a nice touch. Kudos and A+++++."

  • "My wife (who is a great and innovative cook) and I came to Mobile just to get away for a week-end and to, hopefully, eat at some good restaurants.We dined at The Kitchen on George on Friday evening and, quite frankly, it made our trip a success from the start. The wine and dinner menus were diverse and inviting, the service was excellent (attentive, but not overbearing), the atmosphere laid back and comfortable, and the food was great. And the local craft IPA beer was excellent. We will not come back to Mobile without eating there again. Highly recommend."
