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.

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!
