For the first time, the food wasn’t perfect. We had two DIFFERENT salads, & we each thought there was way too much dressing on them. We each had a different cut of steak, & both of us thought it was too salty. The ambiance and service were excellent.

The food was excellent, our server was nice, congenial, and knowledgeable. Our view was amazing, and with the additional spacing due to covid, there was ample room and we didn’t hear conversations at other tables.

We loved that we didn’t feel rushed, and were able to enjoy our evening at our pace.

It was a wonderful birthday celebration for an 82 year old friend.

Clay is an awesome waiter, patient and explained the dishes excellently. Recommend highly was a great experience, even if the hostess tried to put us by the kitchen at first. Everything else made up for that

This was for my son's thirty ninth birthday dinner, there were five of us and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the dinner and experience. We started with fried oysters on toast and the oysters were perfect. My son and I had the cowboy ribeye which was coming off the menu in the next day or two, cooked to perfection, very tender and only problem was so much of it, we both brought some home. My wife had the filet which was also very good, tender and cooked just right. My daughter had mahi which was one of the fresh catch of the day fishes, it looked great fried over a bed of grits. My granddaughter had a pasta dish with shrimp and chicken that looked very good. Everytime we go, we come home satisfied, this is one of my go to restaurants in Mobile. BTW, the view was spectacular as it was an uncommonly clear evening for Mobile.

We made a mistake with our reservation (our fault) for Brunch on a very busy Sunday. However, the lovely manager went out of her way to find us a table. We were able to get seated, eat and make it to our appointment on time. The food and service is always amazing! Wish I had the managers name that helped us. She deserves our many thanks!

Absolutely love this place. It has never disappointed us. Food is always on point. Service is always fantastic. We absolutely love the view out the windows at night. Somehow we get the best seat in the house every time for our anniversary. The piano in the distance added to the ambiance. Can’t wait to go back.

One of the most elegant places to eat in the State of Alabama!! On the 34th floor you have amazing views of the City of Mobile and the waterways. Live piano made for a great place to spend our 19 year anniversary. We visited the speakeasy in the basement area behind Roosevelt’s bookcase!! Very happy with our visit and will be back soon!

Dauphin’s is our “go-to” for a nice quiet meal on Friday or Saturday night. The service is always fantastic, and the food is as good as you’ll find in south Alabama.

Stevie P was most attentive. Cocktail excellent. Oyster appetizer fabulous and salad with strawberries very nice. Wahoo thin and overcooked and therefore DRY.

Overall nice ambiance and experience.

Will return but avoid fish options as it appears this is a weak area.
