This place serves a meat and 3 plus menu options. We ordered the country fried steak, chicken and dumplings and the burger with mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, green beans, black eyed peas, fries and butter beans for our sides. The mashed potatoes and mac and cheese were good. The others were average. The buffalo fried crawfish tails are excellent.... More

This place serves good old-fashioned Southern comfort food. Great plates like fried chicken and hamburger steak with sides, and delicious gravy. Good cornbread, too, not that cake-like sugary stuff some places serve. Just remember the check out the specials and plan to arrive early since this is a popular place!

My wife and I had lunch here after the trolley tour. It was busy... but service was good and food didn't take long. I think most of it was already cooked ahead of time. But we had Chicken and Dumplings, Pork Chops, with yams, red beans and rice with sweet tea to drink. Now this meal was good... but not... More

The food was delicious. However, they ran out of cornbread dressing which came with my meal. So, I had to ask for a replacement side. Overall, ok service but really good meal.

True southern flavors throughout. We had a variety of items for our family of six. Friendly service and great food. Price point is right on as well. Nice downtown setting.

I tried this restaurant out on a Thursday and had baked chicken and dressing. Omg!!! It was delicious. It's REAL country food, not Cracker Barrel pretend country food. It was a nice little place and I'm already planning to go back next week to eat!

My wife and I discovered Mama's on Dauphin during a trip to Mobile and we are thrilled that we dined here. The restaurant is clean, bright and well lit. We were greeted in an extremely friendly manner and were seated immediately. After perusing the menu we ordered fried green tomatoes, the red beans and rice dish and a fish po'... More

The wait was quite long, and literally out the door when we arrived shortly after they had opened. It was well worth it as the food was delicious. The wait staff was very kind and attentive. They were out of chicken when we got there but the meatloaf was to die for, and well worth it. Wish we could have... More

This is a local favorite. If you want a table, get there early. Have the jambalaya. It is a fairly cheap place to eat, but it is small and very crowded.
