Lovely meal food was excellent and service perfect
Great southern food and service. Cocktails were mixed nicely and brought out promptly
Good food! Fried green tomatoes were delicious. The fried pork chops are a must try!
After seeing the Dumwaiter on Guy Fieri show we were excited to try it but was disappointed
Food was ok
service was good
price was 114.00 for 2 ok fish dinners ( the special of the day)and a cup of soup
The twice baked oysters weren’t good. The seafood pasta was “meh”. The Honeysuckle was great. The Brussels sprouts were amazing. The porkchop was ok.
Amazing food and service (thank you, Stephanie!). We have always had a great experience here. Highly recommend!
We went on a Saturday and ordered the fish special. I received the small end portion of the fish, which is the lesser quality portion. Others at table ordered the same dish and received better portion fish. When questioning the waitress, she said the owner is over there and oversees the dishes. The owner never came to the table. For the price of the fish special, I would except a better quality dish. Too expensive for the fish special, portion and poor quality delivered! Love this place but need to deliver great quality for all dishes to get return business.
Great Food, great service. Highly recommend them. Good menu!
Loved our dinner here. We will be back next time we’re in Mobile.
We had a party of 8 and we were in private room. Food was delicious and service was amazing!
Atmosphere great excellent service.
The service was very prompt and friendly. The seafood was perfectly cooked and well seasoned.
We went for our anniversary, we had heard that the food was great so we wanted to try it for ourselves. First off, the service was amazing, from the hostess to the server at our table. They both made great recommendations on food and were very knowledgeable of the menu. The food and drinks were outstanding, one of the best steaks I’ve had. We will definitely be going back.
Super overpriced for not great food. Will not be going back again.
Everything was excellent we did shared plates 2 orders of the scallops amazing! Brussels outstanding and oyster hot app!!
Hailey great job
My first experience was everything and more! I will be back !
The pimento cheese appetizer is the best thing that I have ever eaten!
Though I selected that it was our anniversary nothing was mention.
Hailey was super sweet. The service was excellent and food was even better!
The appetizer course was good. We ordered green fried tomatoes and baked oysters. That is where the positives of the restaurant ended. While we were still finishing our appetizers, our main courses were delivered. We asked that they take them back until we finish our appetizers. When we got the main courses they were dry and not very good. We felt rushed through the meal, even though no one was waiting for our table, and there were empty tables. Overall, not a good impression of the restaurant, unless you just go for appetizers. In addition, they have an uncharge for using a credit card to pay. Who carries that much cash around to pay for an expensive dinner with drinks?
We arrived a little late and they were very nice to hold our table for us.Heather greeted us when we arrived and was very happy we made it.Our waitress Haleigh was a delight.She was so sweet and patient with us.She gave us plenty of time to order and we never felt rushed.The food was outstanding.The steak was cooked to perfection and the mashed potatoes was amazing.The fried green tomatoes had a piece of fried cheese in between each tomato.So good 😊.Can’t wait to go back and try something else.
Wonderful food and atmosphere!! Really the best cheesecake ever for dessert
Stephanie was wonderful and food was excellent
Best filet I have ever had. The bourbon peppercorn sauce was delicious. The fried green tomatoes were very good as well. Would highly recomend
Always a favorite for us. Professional service and delicious food with a great atmosphere. Hits all my requirements
which is why we return often!
Everything about this visit was amazing, except for the host. Walking into the restaurant, we were at the host stand and the feeling of being welcomed went out through the door. You’d expect your first impression of a place to be welcoming and happy. The host lacked the enthusiasm and happiness that most places has; no “hello”, no smile, nothing. We stood there for a bit until we finally just said we’re here for a reservation. She went on to walk to our table, not realizing that we had to follow her because she gave us 0 communication on anything. After that, however everything was AMAZING. Our server, Stephanie, was very warm and welcoming and informed us about everything we needed to know about the menu. I work at a fine dining, so there’s my credential. Of course, I would never know if someone is having a bad day, so maybe it was just a bad night for her. - 5/28/21
This is an overpriced restaurant. The food was just like any other meal you can get from Texas Roadhouse or even Logan’s. The Brussels Sprout appetizer was horrible, I sent it back after tasting the horrible vinegar that was paired with Brussels Sprout. $55 for a ribeye, a spoon of mashed potatoes that was dry, and some super crunchy asparagus. The only thing was okay was the honeysuckle drink. The bartender needs to learn how to make a simple strawberry lemonade margarita that tasted like a bag of salt. Please don’t believe the hype with this restaurant. A dinner for 2 normally is well worth the wait for your food and drinks but this was H-O-R-R-I-B-L-E. We will never eat there again. $200 bucks for what?
A must place to dine if you are in Mobile. My husband rarely is pleased, but he raved about the Shrimp & Grits and Blueberry Bread Pudding! I had the fresh fish special and it was excellent! The Old Fashioned was worth the visit alone. Our server was delightful. Well informed and passionate about the food and history of the building.
I’ll be back the next time I’m in town!
Table was in sun and very hot. Waitress was friendly and food was good. Dessert was the only bad thing was a terrible bread pudding.
Amazing. Simply amazing. We were able to book the last reservation at 9pm, the kitchen closes at 9:45p. we normally won’t book within an hour of closing BUT I’m so glad we did.
My friend ordered meat and potatoes which was supposed to be Wagu beef. It was more chewy so we believe it was more ribeye. She still enjoyed it.
I ordered the fresh fish which was amberjack. I don’t tend to go for more meaty fish but this was cooked well. My dish also came with cheddar grits and green beans which I subbed for asparagus.
The desert was blueberry bread pudding with ice cream. Just get it. Don’t ask questions!
Thank you Emily, our waiter, for your outstanding service.
My husband & I were taking a mini vacation & our stay at Battle Field hotel which was such a disaster 😡 however, once we came into your restaurant and our server came over with her welcoming smile 😊 all of my agitation started to melt off and then once our dinner came and that first bite of Wagyo flat iron steak & roasted potatoes !! Really did the trick ! Thank y'all for making our trip happy again.
I love it!!! The food was amazing and it was a nice ambiance! Can’t wait to go back!
Very good atmosphere and service was excellent. Reservations were good as was the follow up.
Food and drinks were good. Room was a little loud and tables/chairs are not the most comfortable.
Stephanie was amazing and food delicious
Great service, amazing tasting food, a bit pricey but worth it.
Poor table offered with a reservation. Food, drinks, and service was outstanding.
First time at the restaurant and they gave us a private space for a birthday dinner. Server was fabulous; very attentive. Will put this one on my return list.
