Kitchen on George Ratings and Reviews
It was good, however the portion sizes are small and expensive. Would like to see a little bit more food on the plate. It was very yummy! However maybe I'm just being greedy! Not an everyday restaurant due to the price. Strictly a special occasion dining venue.
We went for Father's Day brunch. Food was very good and fresh, and staff was very good at keeping the buffet well stocked. Service could have been better. Once we mentioned that we hoped to enjoy a leisurely brunch, the server stopped rushing us to order the make your own omelette which was part of the brunch ( the first 15 minutes felt like the server wanted us to hurry up and eat, despite many empty tables - we stayed a total of 90 minutes). The server seemed unaware of things such as refilling empty coffee cups, and we had to ask for more coffee several times. We plan to try again for dinner and hope service is better the second time around.
We had never been to the area so this was a first. A friend sent us a gift card to the restaurant because he knew we were foodies. What a wonderful place as the menu and then the food are the best. We tried the 5 item tasting and were treated to some of the best food in a very long time. Wine and beer menu was designed to fit the food selections. All I can finish with is that you need to try it! You will not be disappointed. We will be back!
I went to this restaurant with 3 business associates based upon a local recommendation. The restaurant is located in a neighborhood zoned area with street parking.
I ordered the crab and corn soup and beef tenderloin. The soup was a thick creamy (very rich) soup that was quite tasty. Three of us ordered the beef tenderloin. A 6 oz piece of meat that was perfect size after finishing that very filling soup. The beef was cooked to what I asked for and was excellent.
The entree menu is a bit limited. The catch of the day was an anchor fish which was described as more of a meaty steak than a light fish so I passed on that.
I found this place online while looking up good places to eat while visiting Mobile AL. I am very pleased with the decision to dine here. We liked the location, the ambiance and the quality of food was exceptional! The shared menu dishes were larger than other farm to restaurants I have been to (positive.)
Lastly, our waiter Duskin was patient and kind. We will visit King on George again. I have already recommended this place to people I met along my weekend visit here!
Kitchen on George is always excellent. We had not been there for over a month due to some medical issues for both of us. They have a new menu which was great. The mushroom soup was fabulous. My wife raved about the duck leg.
It took a little more time than usual in being our food. The server kept us informed all along and gave us free dessert because of the wait. The wait was not very long but she went well beyond to make sure we had a good evening.
We enjoyed the buffet style breakfast- however we witnessed at least four different families/customers leave once they found out it was a buffet. This is not well advertised on web page and the customers were confused that it was only buffet style! Other than that great service and the food was delicious!
Attended a work lunch here. Food was great but every member of our party was freezing! I noticed that the air was set on 68, colder than I think most diners would prefer. Had the flatbread with seasonal veggies and it was delicious. Would recommend but suggest bringing a jacket!
I hate to send a bad review, but my wife and I had one of the worst meals we have ever eaten. Service was good and pleasant. The table we were sitting at was to close to the next one. So, we could hear everything they were discussing. The food was awful. I had a Catfish that was over breaded and lacked a nice taste. My wife ordered a Flatbread that tasted like it contained all the left overs from other entree's. The sad thing is, this was not our first visit to the restaurant and it was always a excellent meal. This was not the case on this evening. $130.00 later and my wife left hungry. This is a restaurant that has a changing menu and that can make it interesting. This particular menu needs to be changed immediately! It will be a while before I ever consider going to it again.
This has been my favorite restaurant for several years. Definitely a decline in quality and variety of food. Both soups were unappealing in presentation (mushroom was downright nasty looking) Corn and Crab was overcome by seasoning. Salad was drowned in dressing and soft shell crab overcooked.
Food took ages to get to the table and when it did the steak and potato cake were burnt beyond recognition. I wish I could post a picture here to show just how bad it was - completely inedible. Search for my Facebook review for pictures (if they haven't taken it down).
The other dish was supposed to be braised chicken and it looked like the worst fish fingers you could imagine. Clearly overcooked in old oil and grey throughout. not one sign of any white chicken meat remaining.
They comped our meals but we still ended up paying $80 for a couple of cocktails, a beer and 2 glasses of wine.
Definitely in the "never again" category.
On our last trip to Mobile we enjoyed an evening at KOG, it was fabulous in all aspects. We returned a +year later to find nothing had changed. By the middle of your first course you realize why they are number 1 in Mobile and deservedly so. thanks to the entire staff for a great meal and evening.
This was my second time eating at Kitchen on George. My first visit was excellent. Food was great and plenty of it. . This time my food was good but my entree was only a few small pieces of steak, and two domino size potato pieces. There was not enough food to qualify as an entree. It should have been called an appetizer. I had to order salad seperately. My wife had fish. She was pleased with her portion and her side.
My advice to the chefs at Kitchen on George is give the customers a fair size entree and side.
I was excited to finally try this restaurant. Overall I was pleased and I would plan to return but there were small hiccups with nearly everything we ordered. The burger was medium well instead of medium rare, the jambalaya pasta was swimming in a pool of grease. The brownie dessert was unpleasantly crunchy like it had just come out of the microwave. The bill showed "open liquor" when I ordered a non alcoholic drink. The server was friendly but gone for long periods of time so I didn't have the opportunity to have the issues addressed. Overall mostly small issues but I was expecting more of a five-star experience and found it to be 3-4 stars instead.
First time we have been for Sunday Brunch. It was so good. Most food on their regular menu was on the buffet so that was great. Gave us an opportunity to sample several different items.
(We also have had two bridal brunch's at Kitchen on George...it was great.
This is not a negative review. However, considering its' number 1 rating, I think I was expecting more. The food was very good, not exceptional. Service was very good, not exceptional. Ambiance was very good, and again, not exceptional. A definite top 5 but not sure on the number 1 rating.
