The BLUEGILL Restaurant
Fried or Sauteed
Sweet Potato Casserole
Fried Green Tomatoes with Crawfish Royal
Fried green tomatoes topped with our famous crawfish tails in Bluegill's creamy herb sauce
Everything was great except the whole mask thing. I think it's a little bit overkill.
Great dining experience on the water. Our waitress Gracie was wonderful.
Great service. Food was delicious. We will definetly be back.
Great food and wonderful place to gather with friends
Thank you for dining with us and for the great review!!! We can't wait to see you again soon!!!
We were seated promptly. Michael was our waiter, he explained the menu, answered our questions, and was
very attentive during the whole time. The food was very good, especially the flaming oysters. We will
certainly return and recommend the Bluegill to our friends. Thanks for a nice experience.
We love having you and look forward to serving you and your friends again soon!! Thank you for the great review!
Birthday. I wrote that we were celebrating a birthday when I made the reservation then reminded the hostess during the lunch. They never came out to sing happy birthday.
Thank you for dining with us and we look forward to serving you again soon!! It is not our practice to sing at the table but I'm sure if you ask next time, those that can carry a tune would be happy to sing for you!!!
Nice lunch spot with exuberant waitstaff and pride in their offerings. Sizzling oysters and green tomatoes w, crawfish sauce were especiallygood
Thank you for dining with us!! We look forward to serving you again soon!!
I would recommend this restaurant, but, with reservations. The alligator dish and the slaw are tasteless. The only thing that had any flavor was the fried okra. This is my evaluation of my meal. Everyone else in our party seemed to enjoy their food. But, everyone else in our party was not in the food service business for over 40 years and a Chef for over 25 years. I'm a little more critical on food than most. The server was nice and pleasant and knowledgeable.
Great food and service!
We usually take family from the Denver area to the Blue Gill when they come to visit. They love the setting as well as the live bands. It was cold Friday night , but the overhead fans were on. Our server did quickly remedy the situation.
Food is usually good. I do wish they could expand the menu a bit and offer a meal or two in addition to the daily special.
My husband and I had lunch at Bluegill while visiting Mobile. A helpful employee at the Alabama Welcome Center on I-10 leaving MS suggested that we use coupons (from 2 coupon books she gave us) for free cups of gumbo at this and a couple of other Mobile restaurants. We took her up on it. The gumbo was excellent and made the total meal a very good value since it was free. My husband selected the omelette with a side of fried okra for his entree. He and I were surprised that the omelette (which was mediocre) was served on a roll. The fried okra was good. I had the fried oysters with sweet potato casserole as my side. We both agreed that the sweet potatoes were the highlight of the meal. Unfortunately, the 8 oysters were tiny and made the basket look laughable. In fact, one of them looked like a fried popcorn shrimp - not even enough for one bite! I expressed surprise to Erica, our server, who agreed to bring me one more to make up for it. Instead, she brought an additional 3, each of which was bigger than any in my original serving. These 3 were delicious; I just wonder why my portion for $10.99 was so tiny to begin with. Erica’s service was excellent and she gladly provided tea refills and covers to go. But the overall food experience isn’t one that we would rush to repeat.
We always schedule our travel to Perdido to make BlueGill and stop for lunch! Love the atmosphere, the music and the fact that they will take reservations! Food is delicious as well!
Can't give a 5 because the wife said her food was very salty. Mine was great.
Enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent!!! Highly recommend!!!
Loved the staff. Loved the food. Loved the back patio outside.
We had a big group and more showed up than we expected 18 vs 25). The staff added tables and chairs several times - but needed 2 waitstaff vs one to serve 25 people.
What wonderful ambience! Oh yeah....we'll be back!
Waitor was not seen most of meal and no drinks while meal. Food portions substantially smaller than previous visits.
Our lunch was a group of old friends and sorority sisters. Since we live in various places getting togetherness is special!
i got the char-grilled oysters. they were absolutely awful. they are my favorite. had way too much topping that made it seem breaded and the texture was not right because they were under cooked. had a pudding texture. told the server and didn't take them off. very disappointed. And i hate to be the one to complain and rarely do.
Service was excellent and oysters were amazing
The staff were all wonderful - very professional yet pleasant. The food was great!! We tried a wide variety - alligator, oysters, shrimp, mani mahi and fried green tomatoes. Wow, everything was delicious!!
Great food and atmosphere! Nina was a wonderful server!
The sauteed crab claws are absolutely delicious. The live music was not too overbearing, and the service was great.
Always love coming in. Food is great ,service is always awesome. I eat here on a regular basis and will continue to do so.
The food was great and the service even better. Great, fun atmosphere that knows how to operate.
Allison was our waitress and she was very attentive and friendly. She also greeted me by name which was impressive. It was a great experience!
One of our favorite places every time we are here.
My husband and I sat outside in a booth by the water. A reservation was definitely needed as the place was packed. Tried the "Flaming Oysters" and they were so good, we ordered another dozen and that filled us up! The entertainment was great and we had an enjoyable time!
Always popular, the Blue Gill has been a great hangout for great food, beverages, and music. We went on Father's Day, made our reservation through Open Table, arrived slightly ahead o time, but was promptly seated. Anna Louise gave the 6 of us a very nice dining experience. Of course, we'll be back!!
Great food great price. Really nice view of the water.
The Bluegill has great ambience! There is plenty of room between tables and the wait staff was amazing. Food was just meh. I had crab cakes and they were so thick that the center wasn’t done. Not sure if we would go back.
They have the best grilled oysters!!! Love the music and outdoor area!
My daughter had THE BEST 17th birthday celebration at The Bluegill!! The music was fantastic, the band even sang to her without us asking :) The food is always wonderful & our server was so sweet & understanding with all the teenagers! She truly deserved a great tip - it was well-deserved! Thanks again for separating our adult table so the teens could enjoy being on their own too. Definitely look forward to returning to enjoy another Delta drink too!
As always great food and service. We love having dinner at the Blue Gill
The restaurant was as good as always. The food was excellent and the service was great it’s just an all-around nice atmosphere. I will continue to enjoy meals at the bluegill.
The grilled oysters were amazing. The service was genuinely friendly.
Loved the laid back atmosphere and love music. Food was great, and so was service!
We had a great waitress and the food was excellent. We will come back the next time we are in town.
Medical school residency match day
food seemed like reheated leftovers from yesterday or even before that...water view was nice but food left us all both disappointed and feeling ripped off.
