Cozy and charming, the service, drinks, and food were terrific!
Portions were a little small but the food was absolutely excellent. Will be back.
Went there for an anniversary was not disappointed!!
Even though they were packed, we got great service. Food ROCKED!
I took a family friend here for dinner after a post life celebration. The ambiance was just right, slightly formal without being pretentious. I started with a new house cocktail, called the Alabama Penicillin, a local bourbon mixed with ginger and seltzer, along with some honey. Not overly sweet and refreshing. We both had the chicken mulligatawny soup, which was very hearty and flavorful. Just a slight taste of curry and tasty chicken, rice and vegetables. Delicious. For entrees, my friend had the fresh catch, which was a sesame and fried wonton crusted red snapper, served with a soy/mustard sauce, fresh vegetables and a ginger aioli. A delicious combination of flavors. I opted for the filet Mignon, which was cooked to a perfect medium rare & was accompanied by roasted fingerling potatoes and roast asparagus. All very good.
My only disappointments were after the entree, the only creme brûlée available was coffee, or dark chocolate/almond. And the place didn’t have a single tea bag available for a post dinner pot of hot tea. Our server, Holly was totally amazing, always asking if she could help in any way. Very reasonable prices. I hope to return on my next trip to Mobile!
Celebrating my husbands birthday. The service was excellent. The food has an overall great taste, my only complaint is the temperature of the food. It seems as if everything got cold waiting for one item to cook. Nice, relaxing environment. The best gumbo!
The food was amazing. Staff is excellent. Fun cocktails. Great place for an early evening cocktails and dinner...and the dessert was divine! Thank you for opening back up after the covid closure. The wait was worth it!
New to the area and trying different restaurants downtown
The food is excellent worth the reopen wait .the food is delicious and the atmosphere is very nice . Our waiter Terry was super nice .
We are so delighted that Royal Scam is open again! We were celebrating our 52nd wedding anniversary and were so happy to have our celebration dinner there. Our server was Azra and she was very efficient and a pleasure to talk with! 5 STARS for Royal Scam!!! Everything there is first class and soo delicious!!!!!
Loved the food!
Had to go in and try their updated menu and I’m glad I did! They were busy, so it was a longer wait between courses, but understandable. We had the crab cakes, salmon, steak sandwich and creme brûlée; every plate went back to the kitchen clean.
Not enough food for the price. I go to restaurants for the food not the decor and display.
New ambience and menu after reopening, Thought outdoor seating was in patio but it was on the street. Fortunately there was a table inside and staff was excellent.
The food was excellent. It was very busy but the staff was attentive and very hospitable. The manager even came by the table to make sure everything was satisfactory!
What a great night! Celebrated our anniversary and one of our favorite places. So glad they are back open.
Great dinner and service. Only suggestion would be to offer bread basket and desserts were not comparable to how great meal was.
Everything was amazing. Delicious gumbo, great craft cocktails, amazing entree’s and seafood special with new Caramelized bread pudding side . Scrumptious.
Amazing place to dine. The food was delicious! I will definitely return.
Nice music just a little loud for my taste.
Probably the best grouper fillet that I have ever had.
