My food was decent. The shrimp and grits I had for $27 would likely have been of better flavor at Wintzell's. The shrimp were large, but that was the only positive. The other three people at my table had equally meh plates. The hanger steak was the favorite of the table. The sides were minuscule... read more

We went in late with no reservation. The staff were friendly and very helpful! I had the hanger steak and it was fabulous!! I tasted the pork chop and it was the best I have tasted! The brisket was a little dry. We will definitely go back!

A group of nine of us ate here after a wedding and were served with friendly and attentive service, even moving our expanding group to a larger table when more people arrived. Despite some of our party being a little rowdy and obnoxious, our waitress was patient and friendly the entire time. The food was delicious as well, with some... More

The people you dine with always set the stage for a good night, but a great restaurant can make it exceptional. As a some one who post reviews I am always careful to ensure my post are not over exuberant with emotion. The Bull.

The Bull has been a fairly consistent choice in downtown Mobile. Based on the recent couple trips I see that changing. It appears management has decided they can drink freely from the bar and coast to continued success. I have watched the manager pour multiple beverage glasses of libations and exceed any customer in intoxication. The food can be well... More

The food here is not bad, but not my favorite. Have eaten there with friends several times since they opened a few years back and just can't seem to find anything that is exceptional. (my own opinion, of course) It seems a little over priced to me, for what you get. Just not my cup of tea, I guess. Nice... More

My husband and I were there for a late dinner. Mine was pork chop and cheesy mashed potatoes with sautéed local fresh vegetables. Very wonderful food, the kind you definitely go back for and we have and will again. Very nice bar and drinks, tables in a downtowns atmosphere, covered in white linen. Very nice.

Excellent Steaks, Seafood and Desserts! Good atmosphere and service. The only think I didn't like is that water glasses are small and we kept running out of water. Wish they would leave pitcher on table. LOL!

I've been working in Mobile for a little under a year now and this is my favorite place. It's a very nice room and is yet casual enough to feel at home. It's a varied menu and always has a nice special or two. The wine list is adequate, although I wish there were a few more choices. There's a... More

This restaurant was a slight disappointment. We wanted to eat here for a while, and finally were able to go for my birthday. Our appetizer was better than our entrees (black bean dip and guacamole...really excellent). My husband had the brisket, which apparently a lot of people love, and it was just so-so. I had the pork loin with grits... More
