The food was decent. I had flounder and my fiancé had red snapper. The “seasonal vegetable” was just some steamed broccoli. The SOCU oysters and deviled eggs were delicious. Overall, the service was decent but our food took an hour to come out. The bathroom had paper towels sitting on top of the dispenser, still wrapped in the cardboard closure. I felt for the price, there was a lot of room for improvement.

Doesn't look like the restaurant in the website photos displayed. Food is overpriced and the service is ok.

Atmosphere was very nice. There were not many people in the restaurant, but it took over an hour to get my food. No one seemed to be in a rush and the cooks took plenty of time socializing instead of working.

Food was excellent except for the crab cakes. Very salty! No social distance dining here! The place was packed! They did take your temperature at the door...hope no one was a symptomatic!

WE arrived at 7 pm for our reservation on my girlfriends birthday. The waitress took our order around 7:25. They lost our order and did not notice that we had not received any food until almost an hour later. After the manager came and spoke to us it still took over 20 minutes to get the food. We ended up missing the event we supposed to go to later that I had planned for her birthday. The food was good but not worth an hour and a half wait.

Delicious food all around and great vibe to this Mobile restaurant! Loved it. Our waitress Veronica was amazing. Will definitely be going back for the fried chicken and waffles, crab cakes or whatever else they are serving up at this gem of a eatery.

Enjoyed brunch with my college friends.
It has been years since we had an opportunity to get together and chat with one another.
SOCU was a great venue to catch up with one another while sipping mimosas & coffee and enjoying a delicious fresh brunch line up.
We all enjoyed something different and no one had any complaints. Everyone was embarrassed that we all cleared our plates.
We had: chicken and waffles, seafood omlet, French toast, and delicious sides to complement each dish-
I ate 3 of the most moist and flavorful pieces of fried chicken that I have ever enjoyed. My waffles were decedent and paired with a special maple syrup- Services was great though we waiting an expected amount of time for our food. It was obvious that love and care is put into every order.

We ordered one of the catch of the day (snapper) prepared two different ways.
Both were overcooked, very tough and dry.
If you are going to charge $34 for the catch of the day (market price) you should be able to prepare it properly!
Very disappointing experience

We had a party of 9 celebrating a birthday. We were sat outside where the wind was cold and they did not have any propane in the heaters. We arrived at 7:30 and left at 10:23. It was a night from hell! Food was cold, only got two beers in three hours. They attempted to make it right by giving us 25% off. My bill was originally $114 and after the discount I was charged $129?!? Then the manager was trying to figure out what happened for over an hour! He tried to give me $16 back?!!?

I have tried this place several times, they would get a 5 star rating from me each time however it’s always a hour wait with reservations! Management needs to address this issue. No one wants to take the time and make reservations days in advance to a “high end restaurant “ just to wait outside in the sun, while they allow walk in “with no reservations “ to be seated before their guest with reservations! If you have guest waiting with reservations, no one else should be allowed to go ahead. I have never make reservations at Ruth Chris or any other restaurant of its kind and had to wait. No one minds waiting 5 10 or even 15 minutes with “reservations “ but each time I come to this restaurant it’s always the same.
