Kitchen on George Ratings and Reviews

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.
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.

This establishment is newer on the food scene in downtown Mobile and this was my second visit. I was thoroughly impressed with the service on both occasions and the food is impeccable as always! I look forward to eating at Kitchen on George soon!

We were a group of Japanese visiting Mobile for a convention. We shared our entrees, so that we could taste and enjoy different dishes....and they were all very delicious!!
They had prepared a large table for us as requested and the atmosphere of the restaurant was also very nice. Thank you.

Had a lovely dinner there on a Friday night for my birthday. Salmon and brie salad was delicious, as was the blackened shrimp and grits. Nice local beer selection. Marble cheesecake was a bit grainy, so would love to try another dessert on our next trip. Definitely will be back!

Very accommodating to our group of 12. We had our own room with a view of the patio. The food was delicious. The server was very nice and was able to split all of our checks accurately. The 20% gratuity was added but we tipped more!

Higher priced meal, but that was expected with thefarm to table concept. However, the freshness of the food was not evident and the food lacked flavor. I ordered the blackened shrimp and grits, as well as the fried oysters.
The ambience and the fact that some others enjoyed their meal would prompt me to give them another try

I have been to Kitchen on George before and loved it. This visit, however, was beyond disappointing. Table was not ready when we got there, so we went to the bar and sat..and sat...and sat before finally being asked if we wanted a cocktail. I had to follow up with the hostess to get the table that we had reserved. Our server was not very friendly even while I continued to say thank you, please, etc. every time she was at the table. When I asked if my salmon could be blackened instead of grilled, you would have thought I asked for the moon. You have blackened salmon as an appetizer, so it shouldn't be a big deal to blacken my entrée piece. Once our meal arrived, my salmon was blackened, but the potato and turnip au gratin was stone cold. I sent it back, and when it was returned, the au gratin was warm, but not hot. Also, the three pieces of asparagus were so undercooked, one almost went off the plate when I attempted to cut it and was not seasoned. My business guest had the chicken which the bartender raved about. She advised it needed a good five minutes less cooking as it was very dry. We had to ask our server what the dessert specials were as it was not offered. We ordered two of the blueberry cobblers, which was actually a blueberry cake, not a cobbler. I bake and know the difference. The other person with us also said her cheesecake was "soft". None of us finished dessert. The only saving grace for the night was the goat cheese grits in the shrimp and grits appetizer. All three of us ordered that and wished it was on the menu as an entree'. With regard to the ambiance, our table was right next to the server's station looking up at the upstairs. That paired with the flies buzzing (there were two) was the icing on the cake. I don't know when I will go back and definitely won't be doing any business dinners there until I know the quality has improved.

We had a delicious lunch on a Sunday afternoon. I ordered the artichokes, pea shoot and beet salad, biscuits and their special mojito. My husband had the corn and crab soup and the omelette. He loved his too. We shared the amazing key lime pie for dessert. The service was friendly, knowledgeable and went out of their way to accommodate our every request.

The fried chicken was excellent. It would have been nice for waiter to ask or inform as to what he pieces would be. My daughter said the waffles were fantastic and I had the salad and soup. Both had great taste. The crab and corn soup was a bit spicy with noticeable taste of white pepper. The salad with goat cheese and candied pecans was very good and had just the right amount of vinaigrette. The only miss was that the waitress was going to bring us blueberry lemon muffins but never did. When we asked she said they were in he oven but she never brought them. Overall it was a great Dunne experience and highly recommend the fried chicken with the Tabasco honey drizzle.

I had the "soup" of the day and it was supposed to be beef stew and it was more like beef both with huge slices of carrots. It was not satisfying at all. I was very disappointed. I wouldn't recommend that at all. For my entree I had the grilled salmon. The grill marks were very pronounced which made the piece of fish taste burned. I understand they wanted to have a pretty presentation but don't sacrifice flavor and taste for aesthetics. Over all I was very disappointed and dissatisfied with the meal. I didn't send anything back because I didn't want to make a fuss about it because I know it is a teaching kitchen. I just won't go back.

First time dining at Kitchen on George and it was absolutely amazing. Quaint location and amazing local food. Everything was fresh and delectable. Our waiter was knowledgeable and helpful in meal decision-making. I will definitely go again when I'm in the area.

My date and I were put in a cubby with another table of two and a table of 6 boisterous diners . Due to the smallness of the space and the acoustics of the space the noise level took away from the talking with my date.

Wonderful service. We really enjoyed the historic Mobile feel of building. Nice music background. It was very cold and I would recommend having a sweater or dinner jacket. We were dissapointed with duck spring rolls and fried okra because they were very greasy. The corn chowder was very flavorful and my favorite of the night. Beet and pea salad was refreshing. I ordered crab cakes for main dish but they were fishy tasting in the middle. Black drum ponchatrain had great complex sauce but I felt conecuh overpowered the delicate fish and shrimp. Oustanding service by our waiter and manager Steven. Will definitely try again.

We had a table of five people for my birthday dinner. We ordered 3 larges plates, 4 small plates, a salad, and one dessert. The small plates were nice for us to taste a few different things. The only recommendation I have is that if the small plate is not enough for everyone to have a bite the server should make the table aware. For example there were four oysters and five people. Everything we ordered was amazing taste wise! Definitely going to be returning soon.

I have been to Kitchen On George many times. This is the last time! Our waiter was terrible, the food and drinks were very overpriced. We had to sit at the bar to get our
Happy hour drinks. The bartender was as sullen as they come. Obviously, he did not want to be there.
IBelieve me, it is truly not worth the price!!! There is nothing special about the menu. A piece of baked chicken (small piece at that), a blob, and I mean blob of mashed potatoes, and green beans for $22.00. Come on! If it was tasty, that would be a different story. Unfortunately it was not. Bye, bye.
