You cannot get a better view. I went for Sunday brunch and a great selection. l got the shrimp, which were fresh and lightly battered. I do miss the eggs benedict. They are doing a great job distancing the tables.

Brunch was terrific and more than affordable. We spend roughly $40 and that included a mimosa and poinsetta, an appetizer, and 2 entrees. Will definitely return for the brunch!

I still waited about 15 mins for a table even though I had a reservation. That is unacceptable. Everything else was great.

Clay was our server and he was helpful, knowledgeable but not intrusive. The view of Mobile Bay was breathtaking at sunset. When we arrived we were seated in the lovely bar area for a drink by a friendly Southern waiter with his hair in ponytail which reminded me of home. The crab cake appetizer was just the savory need to set our taste buds for dinner.

The flourless chocolate cake is to die for

I recommend this as a must stop on your Mo-Bay adventures

The food and service was amazing but the best feature was the top floor 180 view of the city of Mobile. Would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

I took my boyfriend to Dauphin’s for his birthday. This restaurant had the best prime rib I’ve ever had. The menu was reasonably priced and didn’t cost nearly what I had expected. For four drinks (one soft drink, three alcohol), one appetizer, and two entrees was $150. Overall great experience and highly recommend.

The food was fantastic. I have eaten at Dauphin's for lunch several times and was not impressed; however BRUNCH should be the talk of the town. The only downside was our waitresses. She seemed like an unhappy person. She was the only downside to our brunch experience. The music was nice and smooth, social distancing, and delicious food. We plan to make brunch our monthly tradition.

The food was great but overall I feel like the restaurant is more overhyped. The restaurant was mostly empty and we were sat in a table where our view was blocked by metal bars. The food was good but it was nothing that “wow’s” you. Waitress was nice but not as attentive as we would like (left waiting 15 minutes for check, empty glasses, never came to check after our food was brought out). I wouldn’t say it was a bad experience but it definitely didn’t live up to the hype. It was average food and experience with a higher price. I would recommend making the trip to Gather in Atmore instead.

Loved the service and the food was good. I just wish the dress code had been enforced because some people got a little too rowdy at the bar and that could have been the excuse to ask them to leave. But, I didn't let that ruin my evening. I couldn't have asked for anything more from the wonderful staff.

The experience was absolutely amazing. We booked a reservation and got a beautiful view of the city for our anniversary. The waiter was very attentive and patient throughout, he made sure that everything was well taken care of. The food was delicious as well and we even got dessert which I highly recommend! 10/10 definitely recommend.

We made a reservation but had to wait for table. They seemed short staffed. When we arrived to the table the menus were placed on the table instead of handed to us. Fine dining prices are not appreciated if it is not a fine dining experience. It took server a few minuets to greet the table.

We went to Dauphin’s for the first time for our 10-year anniversary and were very impressed by the atmosphere and the overall experience. The view of the city and water from being at one of the tallest buildings in the downtown area were beautiful. The lighting and chill vibe made for a very quiet and peaceful night. The food was a bit pricey especially for the amount of food you get which was expected but it was delicious.

Absolutely enjoyed our meal on NYE! We each had a steak, a ribeye and a filet and some of the best we’ve had ever. The pecan pie for dessert was delicious too!
