    Very Quiet
    Visited Dauphin at on a Saturday morning. Wasn’t much happening. Found a small farmer’s market on the square in front of the Cathedral. Area seems mostly suited for nightlife. We did eat at Wintzell’s Oyster Bar for lunch and enjoyed that. Many people seemed to be enjoying lunch at Spot of Tea. Dauphin st felt quiet and deserted.

    Colorful Dauphin Street is worth a check
    Colorful street full of bars, taverns, restaurants and, I presume, shops but since we went in the evening any shops there were, were shut. Had a nice dinner at Dumbwaiter and a stroll afterwards. Check it out.

    Limited downtown area
    Dauphin Street resembles the French Quarter, Charleston and Savannah with its architecture. But the area has seen better days. It’s only about a mile long but half the storefronts are vacant. As a result, it’s dark and uncrowded even on a weekend night. I am also not aware of anything especially historic or significant about this street. It’s just some bars and restaurants and a square with a cathedral.

We planned a stop in Mobile because we read that it was like the French Quarter, only cleaner. The night we were there there was a lot of closed store fronts and several pods of young adults loitering along the street. That being said we opted to head back to our hotel and have dinner.

We really enjoyed walking in downtown Mobile especially on Dauphin Street. There are many small restaurants and bars. We visited On a Friday night/Saturday morning during COVID. Our night walk was fun and we saw adequate security out. Felt very safe although the hotel required a key to enter after dark. Can't say enough about Mobile. we enjoyed this great city sooooo much more than New Orleans.

What a neat street to just gaze at the houses. We worked our way from I-65 on the west to the downtown area just in wonder of the large great homes. Smaller, but very interesting homes can be found in the neighborhoods south and parallel to Dauphin.

The worst part was incurring the wrath of local drivers impact to be away with elderly Florida tourists.

This was not a formal guided tour.

Perhaps at one time Dauphin Street might have been bustling but currently there are more buildings boarded up than open. I saw a couple of restaurants and a few shops but none that I was interested in shopping in.
There are still a couple decent restaurants but that is about it.
I felt like I had been mislead by the advertising Mobile does for this area and it was a waste of my time.

There’s some great little restaurants down in this area. There are only two shops, but they are really trying to revive this area so I suggest that you make some time to try to walk the street and help provide the economy! It has a really nice square down there.

Dauphin Street is very nice. French architecture in the area is much like New Orleans French Quarter except it’s clean and safe. We enjoyed our short weekend in downtown Mobile.

This street could be in New Orleans but cleaner.
There were lots of restaurants and bars. Several currently are closed due to Covid. However it looks like a really fun place. We sat outside at a brewpub and watched people walk by.

Nice street to walk down, some interesting restaurants and art galleries, it’s a nice area to get some good pictures. Not best shopping but some stores to stop in and see. Bought some things at haunted book store and Lupercalia art gallery. Stopped at bier garden sat and enjoyed for awhile. A good weekend place. Worth a stop and see
