great food what a shame they rush you

The food and menu was varied and very interesting. The portions are plentiful. The cuisine is great and execution top notch. Great taste. The wine list is extensive and very reasonably priced. What can you say. They then destroyed all that by rushing on the dishes. Despite being told we were in no... read more

My wife and I visited The Bull on a Saturday night at 7 pm with reservations. There was one other couple in the place when we got there and they left before us so we were the only diners until after 8 when we left. We discussed the "crowd" with our server who suggested the big fight tonight was keeping... More

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, & didn't necessarily pair well... 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. I have visited this place on and off since it open. the restaurant offers the decor... More

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!
