Went to the bar

Went here with a large group and just went to the bat. We left to go have dinner elsewhere but shouldve stayed. Had the best dirty martini ever here. The service was great. Great atmosphere with a great restaurant. Great place to catch up with friends ot colleagues.

Dined as a group, and the service was surprisingly very good for the number of people we had. The restaurant seemed fairly empty though so there wasn't really anyone else to concentrate on. The hipstery vibe of this place isn't usually to my taste, but the food was good.

I love the unusual recipes that are served. I've eaten here more than 10x and every time the food has been top-notch. For a nice evening out, The Bull is a more affordable choice than others. The only complaint that I have is that we are always a little put off by the coldness of the hostess. The servers are... More

Been to The Bull on several occasions. The first couple times were outstanding. The last two times not so good. For the prices they charge, I am expecting to be wowed. Just an average meal . My wife and I have the New York Strip and it was tough and cooked hard on the outside on a medium rare steak.... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants among many nice ones in Mobile AL. It's white table cloth so quite uppity. Food has always been excellent...we mostly order steaks. Service exceeded expectations; wine service provides a broad selection. Atmosphere is quiet although there's a bar there and, apparently, locals gather after work and conversation flows. Regardless, we found it a... More

Just pulled into town for one night on our way to San Antonio and found The Bull just by chance while walking down Dauphin St. I had the special which was cat fish with potato hush puppies prepared beautifully and layered with local veggies and just the right sauce on top. Lovely! I hated leaving any on my plate but... More

Found this gem in downtown Mobile. Excellent food and friendly atmosphere. The double cut pork chop on a bed of cheese grits was to die for.

Being that I don't know too much about Mobile, I didn't know exactly where to go eat while there. So, I found a few restaurants that were located on the same street and just decide to stop by a few and see which "felt" right at the moment. My husband and I walked down Daulphin St. -- which is where... More

We were taken here by a local and were surprised at how good the food was. The gumbo was excellent and so were the main courses. I tried the brisket and although it was a little dry, it was as tender as any I have ever tried. The others tried the fresh catch and rabbit and were not disappointed.
