Diner Reviews
  • "My wife had some good fish. I had some not so great shrimp. Along with a pretty cheap tasting batter they were also out of the side I had asked for. Furthermore, we had to ask for bread as everyone else had been served around us. Probably won't be back anytime soon. It was our anniversary so I wasn't going to complain."

  • "My fish was overdone and was taken back for a fresh piece to be made. When it took a little longer than they thought, the manager came over, apologized and actually took it off the tab. I'd go back there as a result of the way it was handled."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We usually love going to Mitchell's and this time it was so loud.. It was difficult to hear conversation. We also were disappointed that they only have one round table, so our party of 6 was seated in a long rectangular table. At first we were offered one of their horseshoe shaped booths but that is so difficult for 6 people to get in and out."

  • "Great food, great service, great ambience. I will definitely return again."

  • "Our service was slow, our lobster bisque like warm at best. My sea bass was undercooked- cool and jelly like in the center. My husband's filet was sub-par at best with gelatinous Hollandaise on top. The only part of the meal we actually enjoyed was the lump crab appetizer. We feel like our waiter forgot about us. An expensive lesson learned at a former favorite spot."

  • "Waiter not personable and very rushy. Very loud. Door when opened slammed against our seat. Food okay husbands fish cold"

  • "That is what was advertised by OpenTable when I was looking for a new brunch spot. No brunch offered but my group of 10 allenjoyed the menu.."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "OK it was a Sunday and after the lunch rush but the service was pretty bad. Food was so-so. I saw one couple walk out and the folks behind us complaining about when their food would arrive. Maybe it was just a bad day but it was my first time here so I can't be certain. There are certainly other restaurants in Birmingham, so choose wisely."

  • "We invited a few friends to dine with my husband and I and the entire experience was fabulous. Everything on the menu was prepared as desired. We will be returning although it is very far from our home."

  • "One of our favorite restaurants had an off night. I had the "Mitchells Trio" this visit. The only tasty part of the meal was the teriyaki based glaze that the scallops were served with and the mango salsa presented with the tilapia. The carribean "jerk" tilapia was bland, the black beans and rice were honestly awful. The salmon was average at best. Again, one of our favorite stops but these dishes with an "ethnic" theme require more attention or should be replaced."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Our party of five was at dinner to celebrate a birthday. Seated promptly at nice round table so we could talk. Waiter was attentive. Food was good and so was company. The free birthday dessert was a nice touch."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Nice place, but fish dish was just fair. The spicy shrimp appetizer was great, lobster bisque soup too thick, coleslaw too sweet, and fish and chips were bland. We have tried their lobster stuffed cod and plank salmon in the past, which were also just fair. For the price, we will try to find another restaurant for a better fish dinner. Chris, our waiter was very good, but just won't go back."

  • "I go to Mitchell's for their specials. This month was lobster themed, and I had an excellent salmon oscar. They reliably have very fresh fish and good waitstaff."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "We visit this restaurant every other month or so--always on a Saturday night. Our table was ready on time, the service was great, the food selection appealing to all four of us. The restaurant was busy, but the noise level fine so we could hear each other. I tried the Chilean sea bass, a house specialty, and it was delicious and the portion generous."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "With a party of 6 stuck in a semi circular booth that did not allow me to move my legs at all, I was was very uncomfortable. I am short. If I had been tall, it would have been agony. Within 30 minutes, my left leg was numb & it was hard to enjoy the food. If you are a party of more than 4, always ask for a round table."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "It was our first visit and it was my wife's birthday. As some have mentioned, it took a little longer than expected for our main course to arrive but that happens occasionally in other restaurants. We enjoyed our meals but we thought that the portions were a little small. The waitress explained that their normal fish portions are 7 ounces. All together, it was an enjoyable experience."

  • "I was really disappointed, this is the second time I have been to Mitchell's (previous time was a different location). This time was for an anniversary dinner. My steak was extremely overcooked. I also felt as though our waiter tried, but the location seemed to be understaffed, so he would stop by when he could, but seemed to be constantly running. Won't be going back."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Service was atypically slow - 20 minutes after being seated we still had only water and JUST gotten our bread. My wine was delayed another 10+ minutes. A manager came by, apologized, explained they'd run out glasses and opened a new box - and my wine would be on the house. Also, the back of my booth (very near a window - post 2B, I think) was not very stiff. I kept getting bumped in the back by the couple in the booth behind us - as they shared pretty animated conversation with the people across from them. I thought it might have just been that couple, but they left before us and I had a similar experience with the next people seated in the booth. I've never noticed this before in any other booth - at Mitchell's or anywhere else."

  • "Mitchchell's a go to for my hubby &I. Sometimes we drop in,other times reservation to be on the safe side. Always interesting as one never knows which Mitchell's you get. This night was both. Arrived 15 min. pearly, had requested a booth , hostess seemed puzzled. There were 16 empty. We followed her as she asked a server if we could have a booth? Awkward , but our server & food were great!"
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "We both had the Shellfish Trio, first time for us. We both thought it was the best meal we ever had at Mitchell's. Crab Legs, Lobster and Dungeness. Excellent"

  • "I recently celebrated my 25th birthday with my boyfriend at Mitchell's. Our server was great very attentive and helped us pick great drinks. We ordered the fried calamari, I had a Caeser salad and a shrimp and marinated steak skewer dinner special, he had the whole Maine lobster. He really enjoyed his dinner I however was disappointed by the low quality shrimp, overly marinated steak (which tasted sweet) and horrible salad dressing on my Caeser salad. The dressing had way too much mayo, lacked acidity and seasoning. The steak was cooked to the correct temperature even though the marinade ruined the flavor. The best part of my meal was the mashed potatoes."

  • "I was quite surprised when we were met at the door with a smile. The staff is wonderful, everyone seemed to be so happy. The food was great and the prices are reasonable."

  • "The appetizers were wonderful, the main course of Tuna and Salmon tasted like "fresh-catch" and were delicious. Over all, we had a wonderful birthday celebration for my husband. Thanks!"
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "I love Mitchell's seafood specials! I had their special including a lobster tail, and king and Dungeness crab legs and it was delicious and the price was great. We don't have Mitchell's in California, so I like dining there when I find a restaurant when I'm traveling out of town."

  • "We frequent Mitchell's fish market often. We prefer the Birmingham location, due to quality food and service. We were surprised to find very slow service during dinner. We order drinks, soup and side salads to start. We then ordered our entrees. We had to wait quite a while to receive our drinks and the usual bread that is served with dinner. We waited so long that we only had one drink each, compared to usually ordering a second drink when dinner arrived. We continued to wait for our bread, soup, and salad. The bread, soup and salad finally arrived. Another half hour later, we received our entrees. The server apologized for the wait and offered a free dessert. We will go back again, but hope to have quicker service."

  • "My girlfriend and I went to dinner here and found the service to be great but was rather disappointed with the food. I had shrimp scampi and she had surf and turf which was frozen days prior and not fresh at all. The beef skewers were chewy. Very disappointing. They always do so well so hopefully the next time we go back, it won't be the same."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "relaxed atmosphere, upbeat, fun & you could hear in the area where we were seated - I didn't visit the bar area the seared tuna was delicious & the wait staff service was very good, attentive"

  • "Our group of 8 enjoyed our meal at Mitchell's tonight. We made a reservation thru Open-Table and our table was ready for us when we arrived. We had a variety of entrees and almost everyone was thrilled with their food. Only problem we had was the meat kebobs served with the shrimp on the skewers came too well done, but they were replaced correctly. Lots of interesting choices, new preparations and fresh catch, made it a memorable meal. And the coffee was excellent!"

  • "I love this place. It has never failed when I have visited with my friends and when I have taken my wife. The food is great and the service is always on point. During my last visit, I explained to the waiter that the dessert that I truly crazed was actually next door at their brother restaurant, Cameron's Steakhouse. Without hesitation, the waiter offered to go next door to get the dessert. truly one of my favorite locations."
