Food was expensive but subpar quality. Got the chicken dish with overcooked vegetables in a lackluster cream sauce. Also got the tenderloin which was undercooked and not to specifications requested when ordering. Restaurant was loud to the point it was hard to hear my dining companion. Server was great, just wish he had been wearing a mask since the resort specified that precautions were in place. Ambiance was nice with great background music-would have been very pleasant if less crowded. Overall just wish food had been better.

We had appetizers and cocktails before our dinner reservation with one of best bartenders I've ever seen ! Then dinner was awesome except I had requested a window table, the maitre tried to sit us at this horrible table but he finally got us at a better one, not window but one of the center booths, it was sufficient, the waiter who I can not remember his name was very nice and food was excellent, hubexcepect hubby sidnt like the chicken to much, but my filet was superb

My husband and I went there for dinner while visiting our daughter who lives in Mobile. We stayed at the Grande Hotel and the staff recommended Southern Roots for a special dinner.

The food was wonderful and the service was exceptional. Our waitress suggested the butter poached shrimp appetizer and grouper. Both were amazing. For dessert, the table split the banana pudding as well as the bread pudding – unbelievable!!

The view of the resort, ocean and sunset were a treat!
