My wife and I made 12:30pm reservations for Sunday Brunch. We arrived about 15 minutes early and were pleasantly greeted and seated by the hostess. Our waiter turned out to be friendly and very knowledgeable of the menu. He explained that in addition to turning out fantastic dishes, the "Kitchen on George" trains chefs in their kitchen. It is not only a restaurant but a school for up and coming chefs - all under the strict supervision of their Executive Chef.

We had heard about the Bloody Marys and ordered two. Wow! The Bloody Mary is almost a meal in itself. It is garnished with boiled shrimp, crisp thick bacon, pickled okra, olives, and the rest. At $8 a pop it's a little pricey but will be one of the best Bloody Marys you ever experience.

As an appetizer we ordered the Fried Artichoke Hearts that came covered in a tasty horseradish sauce. My wife followed up with the made-to-order Omelet and I went with the Red Snapper special. Both were perfectly prepared and delicious. The entire meal plus drinks, less gratuity, came to about $75 and was well worth it. I can't wait to visit the Kitchen on George again and try their "Bacon, Lettuce, and Fried Green Tomato Sandwich"! The couple seated next to us had one and it looked indescribable!

This place is fantastic. Great food- and such a great staff! They went way above and beyond what any place does! Food was great, manager came and talked with us! Packed- we only had a table because of a reservation we made the day before. It was perfect to dress up and celebrate a romantic night with my wife for our one year anniversary! Definitely one of the best places in Mobile!

Luckily for us as we were stopping in Mobile only for the night, we were able to get a reservation. It truly is a gem of a restaurant. Seating is limited and some can be a bit uncomfortable if you have a bad back. Sitting in the bar on a Friday night was louder than we were expecting, but it did settle down after a while. It didn’t help that there was a socialite flitting about table to table visiting her friends that were also dining there. But that’s what this place is about. Really good, fresh food fixed for your friends and family. It’s the type of restaurant you wish you had in your neighborhood to walk to. (Like living in NYC) There are plenty of gluten free options as well.

I’m sure for the neighborhood it’s a catch 22 with having the restaurant there. Great to eat at, but a pain for parking. Although we had no problem finding a spot. I don’t think I’ll ever understand Mobile’s penchant for parking facing in either direction though.

Located in the historic district of Mobile, and well deserves its reputation for food, wine and service quality. We went around 6:30pm on a Thursday night - and tried the seafood dishes (flounder and snapper), the creme brulee. We had sauvignon blanc with the flounder, and chardonnay with the snapper. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The courses were freshly prepared and very delicious. The recipes are local (we understood) and the sauces are quite creamy and rich, but excellent flavor. The ambience is great for conversation, not too quiet at all. Overall, very impressed. Cost was about $100 for two including a glass of wine each, a shared dessert, and gratuity.

We went here for the Sunday brunch. The people were incredibly friendly and receptive. The menu had many excellent items. The shrimp and grits are the best I've ever had. My wife has some delicious crab cakes. The shrimp and corn chowder was outstanding. We cannot wait to go here again. We went here for our 23rd anniversary. I thought the cost was very very reasonable
