We were visiting family in Mobile and were spending time in downtown. Dumbwaiter was a favorite on Opentable. We were not disappointed. My wife enjoyed the stuffed chicken breast, my daughter and I split the steak special. All were excellent. Our server, Skyler, was friendly and professional. We will be back.
The food was delicious as always.
This place never fails. One of my favorites.
The fish was the best we had ever had! We will be back soon!
the food was very good, service was a little slow ( ordering & receiving drinks )
Everything was awesome! There was a hair in my steak. They replaced it and took half off the steak. Honest mistake. It was great though!
Delicious dinner and lovely service!
Get the Brussel sprouts and the fried pimento cheese. Great atmosphere.
Great food and atmosphere! Wait staff was excellent with a good drink menu and wine list.
Love this place!
Very good but pricey for meal.
Nice food. Nice people. Cute restaurant. I will definitely eat here again!
We had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. The service was top notch. Lois our waitress was one of the best I’ve ever had. She was friendly and engaged in light hearted banter which made our experience that much more enjoyable. The food was more delicious than I could’ve imagined. I asked Lois what she recommended and she suggested the biscuit dish and it was nothing short of amazing! A lot bigger portions than I expected as well! My boyfriend got the cowgirl ribeye and said it was one of the tastiest steaks he’s ever had. Oh and definitely don’t skip out on the brussel sprout appetizer too. If you are in Mobile, definitely check out this place. You won’t be disappointed!
We really enjoyed the food. Our waitress was very good. The owner was very nice and came to our table to see if we were enjoying our food.
Overall the dumbwaiter has amazing food and a good atmosphere.
The lack of a more diverse and expanded menu was overlooked in my case due to the quality of the food.
Prices are reasonable for the quality,but are overpriced on some menu items.

Service and food was awesome! Our service was outstanding
We ordered shrimp and grits. It was the worst thing we have ever ate. The shrimp were so tough, grits were not completely cooked and they were so stiff and gummy. We also had braised short ribs and a burger which were good. Dessert was really good- creme brulee and cheesecake. The service was the best thing. Price for what you get not worth it. We were disappointed.
Great food, atmosphere and service. Will be back. Location was very easy to find in Mobile.
Birthday! Very good food! Staff was kind and efficient as well.
Dumbwaiter has excellent food, service and atmosphere!
Restaurant was out of house salad and out of pickles for burgers.
Mahi was undercooked
Green beans were supposed to be caramelized bacon- they tasted like plain raw green beans
Table was right next to front door and every time door opened we froze - food got cold quickly.
Pimento cheese appetizer was fantastic.
Great meal before a concert at The Saenger, the staff made sure our time schedule was met and Food and Drinks were So delicious! Great night!
Great experience! Constance was great as our server and made great recommendations for food choices. Food was outstanding. Pot Roast was delectable. Cheesecake is immaculate. If you haven’t been you’re missing out on a great dining experience.
My first visit to the restaurant last year was a disaster: food was awful and service was terrible. I wanted to give the Dumbwaiter another chance so I brought a group of colleagues. We were placed in the private back room (not as our request but that’s where the hostess put us, which was fine) but I feel like we were forgotten about. We were not offered cornbread until I begged for it as we were waiting on our food for over an hour. Drinks were painfully slow to come. They said it’s because a large party came in and ordered ahead of us but we were there at least 30 minutes before this party. It was such a mess and took us 2 hours to get through dinner. The food this time was good (a bit too much sesame oil on the tuna though) but I am hesitant to return due to the service issues.
Wife &I ate here for our anniversary. It was our third time. Food was great, service was excellent. Couldn’t ask for anything more.
Overall, we had a very good experience. The cobia ( Hook to table special of the day)was very good with a great sauce on it. The steak was not quite cooked to our liking. Great service! Highly recommend trying The Dumbwaiter if you have not done so.
50th bday celebration. We truly enjoyed everything there.
Fantastic as always!
The service was good and the food was hot and very tasty
Disappointing. Loud. Bright lights. Over salted everything. However, service was great.
We enjoyed the quiet ambiance and the food was amazing! Plan an hour since the food is all made to order. I will keep this on my short list for special occasions!
The food and service were excellent! It was a great way to start our New Years Eve evening.
Pricy for what you received. For what your paying for the food, they should not be changing a transaction fee. McDonalds does not even attach a transaction fee.
This restaurant is amazing! From the service to the food. Incredible.
The food and service was EXCELLENT. It's not a quiet place and the seating is a bit uncomfortable, but that's ok. The food and service make up for it.
This restaurant when it first opened up was the best in Mobile, sadly it now is over priced for the dishes it offers. The service has gone down hill as well. Although it is by no means bad food, the value of what you are paying makes it not worth the visit.
They were out of bread, out of pork rinds, the brussel sprouts were not cooked with the normal balsamic vinegar, it was more water. The special rib-eye steak was literally caked in coffee grinds. The waitress was obviously preoccupied. Then we were seated at a table that should be relegated to a kindergarten class in one of the public schools. We have always had excellent food and service at the Dumbwaiter, not this time. The Subway down the street would have been equally impressive this night.
This is the second time we’ve eaten a Dumbwaiter and it was excellent both times. Great food and great service!
Food was great and Lois is a fantastic server!!
