Been to Mitchell's in Birmingham multiple times. Great food but the service is just plain bad each time I go.
The latest was New Years Eve and it was not extremely busy at 9:30PM. We had TWO waitress. Had to ask for water and never received any bread (every other table received bread). Never came back to the table after we received our food. We also wanted to order a second round of drinks but they never came back until I approached one of the waitress when she was walking by. Then we never received the drinks until I asked 20 minutes later. They said it was secondary to the bar being busy. When I walked to the restroom 5 minutes later the bar was empty.

Not sure why the service is so bad at this Mitchell's

Disappointing at best. Service was slow where we had to ask to have table cleared after each course. Had to ask for drinks - even water.

Scallops were overdone and had to be sent back. Rest of diners were done eating by the time food came out again. Bread pudding dessert was nuked so much it was stiff. Replacement wasn't much better.

Great Food and Great Service with a unique Ambiance.....after a movie we walked over to Mitchell's and were seated right on time for our 6 pm dining reservation. We really enjoyed the Surf and Turf special for New Year's Eve. A wonderful way to end the year!

Food was fair at best. Waitress continued to ignore the request for no scallions on food. First bread basket under done second overdone. Not surprising that there were maybe a couple dozen people in the restaurant for a Saturday night. Only benefit was that it was quite and we could have conversation.

Mitchell's was busy on Christmas Day. We had a lovely meal. Tried the shrimp bacon appetizer, clam chowder, the apple salad, along with lobster/shrimp stuffed cod. I had a few of the quaint Baptist church across the street. We would do this again. A very nice Christmas meal. I strongly recommend reservations for Christmas Day.

Our Waitress was frequently AWOL. It started with the Appetizer, we asked for what was the fastest item and it took 20 minutes. We ordered a bottle of wine and it was forgotten until we asked again. Twice they brought new servings and we had to ask to take away the used plates.

It took about 15 minutes after we were seated for any member of the waitstaff to even say hello. I finally got up and complained to the maitre d’ whom, I think, spoke to the manager. A few minutes later a waitress appeared. From then on the service was fine. I might have been more patient if the restaurant was busy but it was not. There weren’t more than 6 tables in use.

Food was mediocre. Good appetizers but my entrees was dry and somewhat over-cooked.

It would have been nice to have a good dining experience because the restaurant is walking distance from our home.

One last thing- the sound track was inane. They need a new musical director.

Took 1 hr 25 min to get our food. People who sat down after us left before our dinners arrived. The waitress said all the right things and did her best to get the food out, but she can't wait tables and cook the food. Manager said all the right things too. He picked up our dinners. The manager and waitress did the very best they could with an uncooperative slow kitchen. We have enjoyed their food in the best, but nothing tastes good after such frustration. I hope the kitchen gets straightened out. We will give it a good long wait and try it again.

We went for Happy Hour and were not disappointed. There were lots of selections and the food we picked was plentiful, very tasty, and very reasonably priced. We had the shrimp pot stickers, the Margarita flatbread and the lettuce wraps. It was almost too much food for two people. The total, with one glass of wine, came to only $22! We'll be back.

Service sucked. The waitress spilled 2 glasses of water on us and our coats. The waitress was apologetic, it was an accident and could happen to anyone .
The things that did stink were that it took forever to take our order, then get our drinks came late and wrong. After sitting a long time they brought our meals and forgot the apps. It’s was a cold walk to the car with wet coats in 20 degree weather . I will not rush back

I was celebrating my daughter’s birthday. The food always consistently delicious, however the service was the worst I’d ever received at Mitchells. The servers timing was terrible. She was not cognizant of ‘proper’ timing to approach a diner from the start of dinner until the end. We felt extremely RUSHED throughout the entire experience. As soon as we sat down, she asked if we wanted a drink. We hadn’t even gotten a drink menu or wine list. She never asked if we wanted water. We obtained a wine list and it hadn’t been a minute later, that she came by and wanted to take our drink order. We informed her that we hadn’t even had enough time to review our options. She appeared irritated that we hadn’t made a ‘snap’ decision to place an order quickly. She then reappeared in less than five minutes asking if we’d made a decision. We both felt pressured to order something quickly. It was awful! Dinner was no different in us feeling rushed to make a decision. As we ate & talked she kept coming over to the table to see if we were done eating. She actually grabbed my plate & I had to tell her I wasn’t finished eating my meal. I ordered a carry out for my husband and she brought it to the table holding the bag at an angle so all the content slide to one side of the container inside. It was a terrible presentation. All the food inside the container was smashed together because of how she carried it and delivered it to the table. I was so embarrassed. This was my daughter’s first time here and I’d spoken so highly of this restaurant. The service was ill executed. Perhaps because of her youth and lack of experience, she had no clue as to how to gauge when enough is enough and too much of a servers presence is just as bad as not enough. Poor execution... I will more than likely decide upon another location when celebrating a special event. U am a frequent diner card holder with his restaurant group, and there are some great options within the group to choose from.

We each had the Shanghai Sampler plus my eating companion had a bowl of lobster bisque which she rated as the best ever, and key lime pie which she had to take part home. John R was the best waiter I have had at Mitchell's. Kudos to his solicitous attendivness. Altogether a wonderful evening experience.

My husband was pleased with his salmon dinner. My filet mignon was okay. I asked for it butterflied and medium/medium-well. It had char on it, was crunchy in spots and was not butterflied. The salads were amazing. My husband ordered the spinach and goat cheese and I ordered the house salad. It was packed and pretty noisy. At times we could not hear our waiter but everyone was enjoying themselves.

This visit to Mitchell's was less than stellar. Part of it was due to other patrons we were sitting by watching loud videos on their phones, but the food seemed to take forever to come and some of it was warm/cool when it arrived. Hoping this was a one time event and will give it one more chance since my niece and father were very happy with their meals.

We had the three course specials and ate in the bar to get the Happy Hour wine prices. The bar staff was really pressed - they needed one more person. Our shrimp entree was excellent, but the lobster topped tilapia had sauce that tasted like canned tomato soup. Also, the service was slightly lacking. Not the usual Mitchell's meal we have.

It took our waiter an excessive amount of time to initially engage us; however, once he did his service was excellent. I had the crab stuffed flounder. While the crab was tasty, the fish itself was pretty bland. Presentation was good, and the prices were reasonable.
