Kitchen on George Ratings and Reviews

Meet out of town friend for quick business/social lunch. It couldn't have been better.
Everything was close to perfect. Appreciated the wait staff/hostess and the electricity from two large groups that were "celebrating" a wedding and birthday while we were there.
Remains a favorite!

The food and service is always very good. We normally love to go with our fish or seafood choice but this time we both tried meat dishes. My wife got a filet that was wonderful. I had the pork loin and pork belly. It was very good but I like smoked pork belly better.
Their wines are also very good and we almost always have a bottle.
It is one of our favorites so we will be back often

I was in Mobile on a business trip and found Kitchen on George on some site (yelp or trip advisor I can't recall). It had excellent reviews so I booked a reservation. The food was FANTASTIC. We ordered the shrimp and grits as our appetizer and I had the Pontchartrain catch of the day. Both were excellent. Our waiter was very patient with us as we tried to decide (all sounded fantastic). I highly recommend Kitchen on George and if ever I find myself back in Mobile I will for sure return.

Second visit to restaurant. Been for lunch & dinner. Shrimp & grits best I've had-better than famed Charleston. Fried okra great except served one piece that was stringy and could not be bitten in to. When okra is tough you can tell when you cut it. Heads up in the kitchen!

Opentable had 2 $ next to this restaurant, so I expected something like Chili's prices. That was not the case. The cheapest entree was $25, so my date and I both chose from the "small plate" or appetizer menu. He ordered crab ravioli for around $13 and got exactly 3 raviolis. Needless to say he was not satisfied at the end of his meal. Fortunately there was free bread and olive oil, but I wish our waiter would have refilled the bread basket. Then my date could have at least filled up on bread. Otherwise, the food tasted great and the atmosphere was great. Service was okay, except for the bread and lack of drink refills.

I found the service excellent and the food as well. However, it was quite noisy. My mother and I could hardly hear each other over our lunch. Because of this I would not return. Most of the noise came from the kitchen. Perhaps we were not seating in the best area.
I might return again and ask for a different seating area.
Was a bit pricey, but service and food was well worth it.

My fish meal was described as fresh fish with a lemon butter sauce and it was served as a square of fish that was tempura battered and fried, with no sauce that I could tell. Served over some potato swirls, that were like deep fried mashed potatoes squeezed out of a piping tube, sounds good but didn't really compliment the tempura shrimp. Probably should have questioned the fish recipe but my sister felt ill, so we didn't stay long. She ordered a corn crab chowder that was okay.

I sat at the bar. Regretfully, I cannot recall the bar tender's name. He was an Ace. Prompt, polite, engaging, knowledgeable, and spot on with his recommendations. Kitchen on George is a gem. Nice, clean, contemporary atmosphere, with excellent local cuisine. I recommend it highly.

I've been a huge fan since KOG opened. Have never had a bad meal, had to wait, always EXCELLENT fiis, drinks and service! When out of downers ask for recommendations for dining I always mention KOG.
Keep doing what you're doing...it works!

Very pleasant spot for a meal, in this case a Sunday post church lunch-brunch, but also true at night and other times. We did what we frequently do at lunch here and that is split the superb okra appetizer, a salad (in this case a seasonal pea and beet salad), and a George burger---all very good and 1/2 portions perfect at lunch. Very good service and excellent food, the salad particularly good and a little edgy. Only complaint is that the Alabama law is so ridiculous, even tho we had been to church and had communion we were unable to have a Bloody Mary because it was before noon!!! We knew that before we went---but then there is always hoping!!

These folks really major in customer service. Ashley was awesome and she made us feel like we were part of a family, she made our experience really special.From the time we set foot in the door, we were treated with excellent customer service. We chose this restaurant based on the Open Table ratings and they did not disappoint. Knowing that we were from out of town, our waiter offered us a sampler platter of their best sellers. The goat cheese grits were off the chart. Everything was delicious and portioned just right. We will definitely come back on our next visit to Mobile.

The food WAS Disappointing. Shrimp and grits drowned in butter. Tough shrimp. The BLT was very sparse on the bacon and the sauce was just so so. Their potato fry's were excellent. I asked the waiter for some mustard for my BLT, he never brought it. It is a great setting. They need to have a serious talk with their chef. For my money I would go to Jacksons in Pensacola for similar food and they knock it out of the park. I would nor recommend to a friend. Too bad, we had high hopes.

We were introduced to it before it required a reservation for Sunday brunch. Still love it. We try to share it with others and especially visitors to the area. It is an out of the way must in a quaint historic neighborhood. The food is always exceptional and far above expectations.

The restaurant is in a repurposed house in a quaint neighborhood. The bar and ambiance were great. We were seated next to a very noisy birthday party and politely asked to be moved. Thank you to the staff that understood our desire not to shout at each other over our drinks. The happy hour special cocktail was amazing. Order the blackened shrimp and grits for an amazing shareable plate. The duck was the best preparation I've ever had. The pork was over cooked (ordered as suggested by the server) so skip this option. My brother had the Pontchartrain red snapper and he loved it. We finished with key lime pie and the brownie. Both were perfect. All in all, a wonderful meal! We will definitely return.
This is a great neighborhood restaurant ...
This is a great neighborhood restaurant in the historic Oakleigh neighborhood. Delicious salads (I love the Brie and Salmon), excellent small plates, such as crispy calamari, fried oysters (excellent), fried okra, as well as regular entree dishes are served, and they have the creamiest shrimp and grits you'll ever find. KOG serves lunch, dinner, and has a great happy hour from 4 -6 weekdays, with half price specialty drinks and small plate specials at a very reasonable price. (Called drinks are not included however). An excellent choice off the beaten path in a beautiful old neighborhood close to downtown Mobile
OMG. One of the best dining experiences ...
OMG. One of the best dining experiences there in a long time. Ashley was our waitress. She knew everything about the "fresh Gulf fish" on the menu. She was attentive but not overly attentive to be in the way.
I was a little disappointed in the Southern Sampler. The West Indies was not like the traditional one from Mobile's Bayley's restaurant. The salad with goat cheese was everything I expected. Love all food is as local as they can get it.
I ordered the Ponchatrain dish. Never had cobia before but it was everything Ashley said it would be. Loved the sauce with shrimp and Conecuh sausage.
Mojito was one of the best I've ever had.
My friend had the pork rilletos or something like that. They tasted like Golden Flake brand. When you order "cracklings" from the Dumb Waiter they are actually cracking. I didn't taste the "dip" that came with it. Companion also had the Ponchatrain dish. Loved it.
Since we were asked to move from our table to accommodate a party of 12 coming shortly sweet Ashley comped our dessert. Companion had the brûlée and I had the white chocolate bread pudding with cherries.
Both were OUTSTANDING.
Ashley was icing on the cake. She made an outstanding dining experience even better. We will return!
However, the party of 12 barely 21 giggling noisy girls drove us out of there much quicker than we wanted to go. Wish there was someway to fix the noise level. As we exited there was a table of about 8 in the front that was real loud, too. It was a lose - lose on noise.

Great place for a birthday celebration!!! It was my first time to visit. I was very impressed. I treated two family members whose birthdays were days apart. The service was grand. They both were treated with a birthday desert of their choice. I will be back. I loved the Sunday brunch.
