I dined during Restaurant Week and found the entire experience excellent. There were numerous choices for each of the 4 courses and the serving sizes were the same as they would have been under regular pricing. I truly enjoyed myself and the sentiment was the same for my entire party.

We celebrated our anniversary at Dauphin’s this past Monday. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and is very welcoming. There is a spectacular view of Mobile River and bay including the docks and bay way. We had their four course special which was delicious. The Poke and the Beef Tornedos were our favorites. We finished our meal with the flourless chocolate cake which is sinfully good. Overall a very nice evening with a beautiful atmosphere.

We celebrated our anniversary at
Dauphin's. We were greeted by the staff
and seated near the bar while our table was prepared. Beautiful views and drinks were very reasonably priced. Our table was then ready and we had a choice of 4 fish of the day specials. Also a beef tenderloin was offered. We ordered appetizers, shrimp cocktail and alligator tail. Both were delicious. Our server was very friendly and attentive. Highly recommend.

Everything within the restaurant was perfect. The only issue that I had was upon entering the restaurant and hour early, I was told that the restaurant was booked for the night. I was a little confused because I had already booked a table At 8:45 PM. However, as the night became young we enjoyed the live music and the city view. The servers were phenomenal. I give this restaurant Five stars, simply excellent.

The brunch on Sunday was exceptional. I found the staff to be accommodating as I was allowed to substitute fruit for grits. Service was excellent although the server did not hover but seemed to know when to check. I recommend Dauphin's without reservation.

the chicken gravy tasted like pinesol, the swordfish was dry, the dressing on spinach was awful, the bread pudding was extremely dense and dry. We were extremely sad, the drinks and view was all that made the experience somewhat positive

Highly disappointed
I heard so many great things and was so excited about going. We love Ruth Chris but heard Dauphin’s was just as good. Well, Our reservation was 4:00 and we was given the best seat in the house- it was beautiful overlooking the Convention Center, Mobile Bay, etc. the view was spectacular - they brought us out bread - cold bread (was it supposed to be cold?) but the spreads were delicious. The strawberry, spinach and goat cheese salad was delicious then our entree’s arrived, my husband had the pecan crusted fish on Yukon gold and he said it was delicious, I ordered the stuffed flounder with shrimp, crawfish and crabmeat and it wasn’t hot or even warm yuck, yuck 🤢, did I say yuck? The stuffing was cool and the skin on the flounder was so tough I had to scrape the meat off it. So I tried the rice - cool, gummy and yuck 🤢. At least my hubby enjoyed his meal. I’ll chalk it up that it was too soon after their lunch crowd and they didn’t have time to prepare. (Yeah, right). Will I return again? For that view probably but will I order the bread, the rice and the stuffed flounder again? never ever yuck, yuck 🤢 did I say yuck?

We reserved a table 6 weeks ago and requested a table overlooking the water. We got a table overlooking a parking lot. We got a single thin slice of bread all night. We ordered the filet mignon and both were over cooked and tasted like fish. They had obviously been prepared on the same surface as fish.
