Kitchen on George Ratings and Reviews
We went Valentine's Day. We had expected a limited menu but not this limited. My husband and I were very disappointed in the limited menu choices and the taste of the food. There was a choice of 2 soups to choose from, 3 entrees and 2 desserts. We both ordered different soups, entrees and desserts to try them all. Food was not what I had expected and we were very disappointed because it was very expensive for what we ordered. Will not be returning nor recommending.
The chef's employ the use of culinary school students and therefore there is a critical eye on all plates served and extra effort being used by those wanting to impress for a grade or future employment. The menu is small for lunch but has many tasty items listed. Our table ordered and enjoyed greatly the fried okra small plate as an appetizer. I would order that again. We ordered the goat cheese salad, the ceasar and the corn soup - all of which were very tasty, moderately priced and well received. For the main course, the small plates mean small plates to be cautious of that if you are a big eater. The crab cakes were awesome although tiny. The spring rolls very well presented and tasty although no filling. The BLT was the largest dish served and was very good. We also ordered the shrimp/grits and fish/grits which are worth a trip back on their own. We finished with warm cherry cheesecake and the bread pudding and those are worth a trip just to enjoy on their own. Overall a great dining experience.
Delicious and inspired food, warm and inviting atmosphere, personal and welcoming service. Kitchen on George was absolutely wonderful. The Caesar salad, for example, was laced with subtle smokiness from tender grilled kale. The blackened shrimp and grits was fabulous, with creamy cheese grits complemented by the subtly spicy yet tender gulf shrimp. The kitchen is staffed by culinary students under the careful tutelage of an outstanding chef, so while I was eating exquisite for I was also feeling like I was supporting education! What a great place, at an affordable price!
I like Kitchen on George, but it would be really good if they could provide more vegetarian options. It seems to always be the sandwich, which is often disappointing. This time, the bread was under toasted and soggy. The friend who joined me said she will never go there again. She eats vegetarian and has been disappointed every time she's visited. I had the salmon small plate and the crab cakes small plate and both were very good, but the salmon was perfect.
Service was top notch. Edgar was a really good server. I thought it was bad to be charged $3.00 additional for a refill of tea. This is definitely for us a special occasion kind of place. Too expensive for the size of portion to be a regular on our lunch rotation.
Charming restaurant in an old house with a lot of character. There was a great selection of appetizers, salads, small plates and entrees. Very friendly staff and there was no rush to order. I would definitely return if I was in the area again and I would highly recommend it for any occasion.
I went with a couple friends for Sunday brunch. They only had a buffet with no menu items. The food was good but the buffet was $30 and they charged $9 for a glass of champagne. There are too many other brunch spots in town with a much better ambiance and exceptional food for a substantially lower price. I will definitely not be back for brunch.
We came for Sunday Brunch ... a family favorite.
On the plus side ... Our server James was spectacular.
On the negative side ... The beef special (communicated verbally) was grossly overpriced, and unfortunately we did not ask for the price before two members of our party ordered it. As a dish ... it was tasty, well presented and the serving size was appropriate for brunch, but the value did not match the price.
Everything we ordered was delicious. The goat cheese salad is the most interesting and tasty salad I've ever had. The fried oysters were perfectly cooked, and the spicy sauce was a nice complement.
Unless you go at an off time, make reservations. The place is fairly small, and seems to be quite popular, even on a week night.
Best-of-2016 dining experience for my group of 10 celebrating daughter-in-law's Master's Degree ceremony at U of South Alabama. Fried okra a must, entrees (including daily special of wreckfish, scallops and shallots) outstanding, service was impeccable. Our only comment would be with respect to the bread offering with meal...very ordinary and not up to the level of all else. That, my friends, is admittedly picking a piece of lint off the collar, so to speak.
My party of four got the Duroc Pork Duo, the Blackened catch of the day (grouper), and the grilled salmon. The bread, the beer, the food, and the service was amazing and we will definitely come back! There is only one thing to add- the salmon dinner was a bit too salty and my mother was just a little disappointed.
