Our starters and soup were very good, however, our entrees did not meet our expectations. The special for the night, flounder, was dry and my husband's meal, Mobile Bay Stew, was tasteless.

I was super excited to celebrate our anniversary here. We just moved to the area and we were told that this was the place to go. However... we didn’t feel the same after our dinner.
We started with the cheese plate- which didn’t come with any sort of bread or crackers. When we asked for crackers- we were given individually wrapped saltines. The waitress could not identify what was on the plate for us either.
I ordered the gumbo z herb and sent it back. There was zero flavor. Water, rice, and sausage. I also ordered the stuffed flounder as the main course and only ate about half. Again- flavorless. The wife had the filet with mushrooms- the mushrooms were as bland as the steak. Salt and pepper in the kitchen would go a long way. I will say the steak was cooked as it was ordered.
Overall- there was a lack of professionalism from the wait staff and the music playing from the speakers when the live artist took a break was so loud we couldn’t hear each other.
The dinner was $160. We were both very disappointed- but the view was great.

The view alone from the the 34th floor makes Dauphins worth visiting. Add to that extraordinary cuisine and attentive service, and you have a remarkable dining experience. If you are visiting Mobile for either business or pleasure, you should not miss the opportunity to dine at Dauphins.

Sunday Brunch was wonderful. The jazz was a pleasant surprise..Enjoyed appetizers of crab claws and fried green tomatoes with shrimp.. The shrimp and grits were rich and savory..and the BISCUITS were SPECTACULAR!! The views here are incredible...we've lived here in Mobile all our lives, looking out over known landmarks is pretty cool, But I can just imagine how awesome it would be for tourists.. we shall return.. if not for any other reason but to see the skyline at night

Our reservation was Sept. 8, 7pm. Brooklyn and her partner, I'm afraid I can't remember her name, gave us excellent service. They were both so young, but amazingly professional and worked seamlessly together. Brooklyn suggested a wine that worked for our 3 very different dishes and it was perfect! I would definitely recommend and go back again!

We live in Daphne and came to mobile for an evening of dinner, Sanger theater concert and to spend the night at the Hilton. Dinner at Dauphin’s was amazing, we had a great time, caught the happy hour we didn’t even know about! Our waiter was great, food was tasty and above all the view is to die for. Anybody that hasn’t tried this place should. Thanks for a great date night away from home

Server was rude & treated my military friends very rudely. I asked if I could get sidewinder fries with a side of Junkanoo sauce and was told “not today”. Did not enjoy my previous experiences but wanted to try again. Picked up food from a different restaurant on the way home. Will not be returning.

We drove over from Pensacola and enjoyed Sunday brunch to celebrate my wife's birthday. The experience was well worth the drive. Our waitress, Michael, took very good care of us. The brunch menu had some interesting choices. Our food was well prepared and well served. The portions were generous and the price very reasonable. The live music was an additional treat and the view from the 34th floor was awesome. We had a north facing window which looks out over the more industrial side of Mobile. The next time we visit we will request a table on the east or south side which face Mobile Bay. If visiting the Mobile area give them a try

Exceptionally attractive setting. Go for a drink at the bar. The food was a disappointment. Dozen unwashed tiny oysters, with grit inside from not washing exterior properly. Waitress brought bubbly to have with oysters well after oysters were served and mostly consumed. Although it was not busy.
Stuffed flounder had a decent stuffing but was awash in something akin to a thick barbecue sauce on top and was cut across the midsection. I mention this because it should be easy to slide your knife the entire length of the fish to separate the meat from the bone, since it is served bone in. But the cut made it difficult. And really it was basically just a mess. The sauce was awful.
Sorry wanted to love this place. The view was exceptional. Get something very simple if you must.

Best view in Mobile. Excellent take on local ingredients. Four of us throughly enjoyed a birthday dinner celebration. To be hyper critical, I had to pour the wine myself to refill my guests glasses. A bit more staff training would solve this small problem. All in all a very enjoyable evening.

This was our first time at Dauphin's. We got there early to take advantage of the view from the bar. Hanna, our bartender was so much fun and made out drinks to perfection.
Vanessa and Brooklyn were our servers for dinner and went above and beyond our expectations and made our experience memorable. We enjoyed the beef carpaccio, shrimp cocktail, fried shrimp and filet prepared to perfection. The key lime pie was calling our name as well. Looking forward to a return visit.

Overall we had an amazing time. The only downfall of the night was when we were first seated we were given a table on the side with a view of the city. We asked our waitress if possible, we wanted a table with a view of the water. After finding out there was a table, the waitress had an attitude with us. I understand it took away from her, but her section was full within 25 minutes, and I didn’t appreciate the attitude. Overall though, great place. We will go back.
