Mobile, Alabama is on the Gulf Coast, a cultural hub for a diverse range of restaurants. Seafood is a specialty, of course, but Mobile has that southern charm that truly makes eating here a special experience. No matter what your food preferences are, you’re sure to find a meal to remember at these local Mobile restaurants.
For a quick lunch, you can’t go wrong with Panini Pete’s. The paninis, of course, are excellent. However, the dish you really can’t miss here are the beignets. Homemade, full of sugar, and the best way to cap off a breakfast, there’s nothing like a good basket of beignets.
Kitchen on George
In the Oakleigh Garden District, Kitchen on George is worth the splurge. The menu changes with the seasons, so you know you’ll be eating a fresh dish perfect for the day. The intimate atmosphere and historic location make this a special place to get some of the best food Mobile has to offer.
Wintzell’s Oyster House
If you’ve ever thought about trying oysters, Wintzells’ is where you want to start. This restaurant has become a historical landmark in downtown Mobile. Casual and moderately priced, this is the perfect place to get the family together and try the sample oyster platter.
Spot of Tea
Just down the block from Wintzell’s, you’ll find a little piece of Britain. Spot of Tea is famous for its tea, of course, but their breakfast is no less amazing. With Spot of Tea, you’ll get that extra Gulf Coast charm with dishes like the Cajun Seafood Omelette and Cajun Tomato Bisque. A grand piano plays in their Victorian-style dining room, so you’ll feel more like you’re in Buckingham Palace with each sip of tea.
The Royal Scam
Dreaming of fine dining in Mobile that won’t empty your wallets? Look no further than The Royal Scam. They’ve got both land and sea options, and their beef is some of the best in town. Don’t forget to finish your meal with the peanut butter cheesecake–the family might have to fight for the last bite of that sweet treat.
