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

The bar offers a wide selection with good bartenders. This is a "local" restaurant with a lot of regular patrons. The blue corn meal dusted oyster appetizer is great. The entrees range from a house favorite slow roasted brisket, to seared red fish or kobe beef meat loaf. Service was good and the atmosphere welcoming.

Ate here on a Sat evening with family and friends. Its a rather small casual type place but was nice and well appointed. Sat at the bar and had a few drinks and a little food. Lee was the bartender, service was great, she poured a nice drink and wasn't bad to look at either! Ordered the gumbo which was... More

Nicely appointed with a lovely menu. Good service. I would go again. My only disappointment was my meal was over salted for my taste.

Went here last week before the Bill Maher concert and had a terrific dinner -- very possibly the best beef brisket (covered in a surprisingly tasty chopped chard coulis and surrounded by sweet potato puree) I've ever had. Friends dishes were also good -- scallops, shrimp (perhaps a bit overdone), and the young woman waiting on us was very helpful,... More

We had an excellent dinner and had lots of fun in The Bull's warm, convivial atmosphere on a freezing cold night! I ordered the red fish- I thought it was perfect, grilled and served with a tomato relish and potatoes. It was fresh and good. The service was great too!

We celebrated our wedding anniversary with a wonderful dinner. Service was over the top with Taylor. The BCS Championship game was on and it was a Monday night so, it was not real busy. Great menu for steak or seafood and a nicer atmosphere than a lot of downtown restaurants.

This place is great. Modern décor and thinking has gone into the business plan of Bull. They focus on localvore, sourcing from as close as possible. Our waiter even told us the eggs come from his families farm. Great seafood and meats (don't know why this page heading says Mexican, it's not) great wine list and service. Highly recommended.

My extended family all met here for Sunday brunch. This included two babies with carriers in tow. The wait staff was unbelievably accomodating to our needs. Service was prompt and the food was delicious. The atmosphere was of your typical elegant downtown Mobile flavor, but with booths instead of table / chairs. They did have a separate bar, but everyone... More
