We’ve been staying in since Covid. This was our first time eating at an indoor restaurant since March. The food was fantastic as always, but the restaurant was taking Covid seriously without making it feel like we were eating in a hospital or something. The patrons were spaced out and everyone was masked, so I felt super safe and comfortable. In spite of all the precautions, the staff and ambiance made us able to forget anything was going on at all for a little bit. You can’t beat the food, but they also did an excellent job showing that it is possible to provide excellent, mostly normal service right now if you try.
Great spot with great food. Will be back for more.
The Fried pork chop was unbelievably good. We loved this restaurant overall!
Dumbwaiter was fantastic as always. Business seems to be picking up and the staff had every other table closed for safety. They took great care of our team and the food was excellent!
One of our favorite in Mobile!
We had the Hook to table and it was one of the best meals we have had!!!! Service was exceptional!!!! We will definitely be back and would recommend to anyone looking for a great meal!!!!
Family had great service and great food. The seafood pasta was very good and the grilled shrimp were excellent.
Great service and food. Apple bread pudding finishing off great food was amazing! Wonderful night!
Excellent food and service. Great for a special occasion. Will definitely go again.
This was our first visit and, Lord willing, it won’t be our last. Every element of the meal and the service was outstanding. Darby, our server, was helpful, polite, and humorous and made sure we were enjoying our food and the experience. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough!
Fantastic! Darby always does an outstanding job for us!
The food is outstanding and the servers are friendly and helpful
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.
