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.

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.

The food was great, the service was a bit slow but totally worth it. We were traveling through Mobile from a beach weekend and we wanted to stop somewhere for a "scenic" brunch. This place was great except the girls from Nola were very excited for the awesome bloody mary bar but we had an 11:15 reservation on a Sunday in Alabama. We aren't use to alcohol limits :)
We had bloodies for dessert, and it was great!

My wife and I chose the restaurant based on it's #1 rating in Mobile and we had never heard of it. The atmosphere was pleasant, the staff was knowledgeable, and the food was excellent. The fact that the cooking staff are students from Virginia College Culinary program was a special treat and anyone can tell that they are all passionate about providing a memorable meal and developing return business. The corn and crab bisque was wonderful and the Fried Chicken and Waffles with the Spicy Honey was incredible. We will be back.

Mobile Tennis Center hosted the USTA State Playoffs which gave our table of nine a reason to dine at KOG Friday June 24th at 6:00 pm.
Our food was outstanding as was our waitress and I'm drawing a blank on her name but included the date and time so she could get a shout out from whomever there who keeps up with feedbacks.
The only frustration was the specialty drinks not being made properly. I tried twice but both the French 75 and the Pimm's Cup were not drinkable. I switched to wine and by all means was happy.
I will definitely go back should I get to Mobile again.

Great restaurant! This was our second visit to Kitchen on George and we were not disappointed with their brunch. The Build Your Own Omelet was very good and the sides were outstanding. The Shrimp and Grits and Fish and Grits were outstanding as was the Fried Chicken on Waffle! The only complaint was that the perfectly fried chicken was not boneless - but it was delicious. Reasonably priced and quality food!

Mobile is fortunate to have Kitchen on George. Innovative dishes prepared with local ingredients that are used knowledgably at the peak of their goodness. My friend and I had a wonderful evening together. We sipped on delicious cocktails, knoshed on yummy appetizers, and chatted happily all while being taken care of by our fabulous server, Ashley.
A wonderful dining experience is when everything comes together like puzzle pieces on a table. The chef's skill and knowledge, the manager's coordination of personnel and resources, and your servor's professionalism and timing. We hit the perfect trifecta at Kitchen On George.
I had the Lemongrass Ginger Martini which was one of the best martinis I've had in a long line of martinis served from bars in 4 different continents and a spate of Caribbean islands. This one stood out because of the use of fresh ingredients, balance of flavors and a bartender who clearly knows what they are doing.
My friend's Garden District Mojito was a long, tall glass of summery goodness, chock full of fresh mint and fruit floating in a frosty glass of sipping heaven.
Our server, Ashley was what turned our good girls' night out into a fabulous one. She was personable, attentive and professional. She set my mind at ease and allowed me to trust that what came out of the kitchen would be delicious and in keeping with my food allergy. And that is not a common thing when someone with allergies has to eat out. Thank you Ashley!
My friend and I agreed to come back, bring our spouses, and share this island of good eats with other friends and family.

Very good food and service for a reasonable price. If we could change anything about this place it would be to do some acoustical engineering--very difficult to carry on a conversation with friends because of the ambient noise level.

1st time visitor very impressed! Highly recommend fried artichokes, blackened shrimp and grits (lovely perfectly done shrimp) duck shrimp rolls in the small plate! My husband had lemon battered fresh catch was to die for (grouper I believe) and my only complaint was the special ( Royal reds sautéed with potatoes) which I ordered were still shelled and very small and totally unlike any of the royal reds I have had! All in all a very pleasant evening and we will surely return!

Overall, a wonderful experience. The food was amazing for all courses with a great wait staff. Everyone around our table seemed to be enjoying the place as much as we were. Sorry we do not live in Mobile as it would easily be our favorite spot.

The salads were fine, but the main courses and wine were very disappointing. I ordered the catch of the day, grouper, prepared with light batter and lemon sauce. What arrived looked like an appetizer. (We are used to small portions, but, hey, folks, this was ridiculous!) It resembled fish and chips sans chips. My wife ordered duck breast medium rare. It was delivered to us medium and tough. The side was a gloppy bread pudding. The wines by the glass were ordinary and overpriced.
Nothing was terribly wrong with our meal. However, nothing was terribly right either. We skipped dessert and called it an early evening.

This was my first visit to The Kitchen on George. We went for brunch. The food was wonderful! My friend ordered from the menu and I ordered a special; both were delicious. Our server, Abby, was awesome! I can't wait to go back!
First time and not the last
The reservation was confirmed by email and phone, which might annoy some, but for this kind of place is critical. Our pleasant experience began with our arrival-- gracious direction to our table, smooth handling of different individuals challenges with the seating arrangements. The booth was wonderful for 6 (5 plus a chair) and could have handled another one or two. Our server was just great-- professional, friendly, and wholly attentive. We had the tempura okra (wow), the crab cakes, the fried artichokes, and the delicious bread to start. People were smiling and munching. Did I mention the cornbread? Not too sweet, melt in your mouth, no need of sauce or butter. The roasted cauliflower salad was amazing-- just the right balance of ingredients. The server recommended the "student creation" of the day-- as a teaching kitchen there can be such an offering. Offer that kid a job-- the mushroom and sweet potato concoction that accompanied the fish was more wonderful than our server had even said. The rest of the food disappeared practically before it could hit the table. We'll be back to savor more-- and maybe save room for dessert this time.

My wife and I have been there several times and each time has been excellent. I had the redfish special and the sauce was fantastic (I wanted to lick the dish). My wife had a filet with a great mushroom sauce. Our server,Cameron was very attentive and helpful.
