                                              Drinks were great a usual. Server spilled part of the drink on the rolls and some on clothing of my party. Mashed potatoes were very dry definitely not whipped. But in the end I keep coming back so it was good

                                              We ate there during the week and there were hardly any tables seated due to staffing shortage. Our reservation was at 8:45, which was the only one we could get. We ended up being the only table in the restaurant. It was awkward. The food was good, however, My husband had a Pompano dish that he found delicious. The bread pudding was the best we'd ever had. Things looked busier on Friday.

                                              Enjoyed the meal on a special Birthday . Host was very friendly and accommodating , Gumbo was best in the area, but disappointed that a “ bowl “ isn’t much bigger than a Cup . The Jamison special drink was outstanding . Service was good but not overtly attentive . Had to ask for bread where other tables were served it . Overall very enjoyable dinner .

                                              This meal was absolutely amazing! We had the crab cake and spring mix salad for appetizers and both were outstanding. For our entree we both had the basil crusted grouper and I can not rave enough about how good it was! Absolutely delicious! It’s one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. I will definitely be back!

                                              Pricey and not optimal option if you have a car. We live here, and the service was delayed and not great, and the food was fine, but better options for the money are in tiwn

                                              Very limited menu. Our server was nice, but we had to ask for water. Drinks were a long time coming. Food was good, but not as special as we were expecting.

                                              The duck entree was very good. Nice ambiance. Cocktails were also the best on the grounds. We will come back.

                                              Just ok. Waitress was very soft-spoken, had trouble with the menu special and sometimes we could not hear her. She seemed new at her position and sometimes unsure of what to do. The food was very good but it seems the menu was a little limited as well as the specials.

                                              Excellent service and atmosphere. Recommend seating near exterior overlooking Mobile Bay near sunset on a clear day to get a great of the sun setting over the bay. All items on menu are very good, but Catch of the Day is my favorite.

                                              We have come to the Grand Hotel main dining room several times over the years form special occasions. This time Southern Roots did not disappoint. They were great. We had a delightful time and will savor the memory of a magical evening. The waiter was professional, polished and knowledgeable. The food was delicious and innovative. The cost was inline with expectations.

                                              The menu is limited but there is something for everyone. The osso buco and grouper were both winners. The service was outstanding and it was a very relaxed dining experience at sunset. We will be going back.

                                              Our anniversary dinner experience was excellent! We started with some drinks at the bar and tasted our first Smoked Old Fashions. Then we strolled along the boardwalk taking in the beautiful Grand Hotel landscape. Dinner and service were top notch! Only downer was one small crab cake as the appetizer was not enough for two. We will definitely being returning to Southern Roots!
