We stopped here after 8 pm last Friday on our way home from New Orleans. My husband and I shared a meat platter (few ribs, chicken legs, BBQ chicken, pork and brisket as I recall) for $26. We chose mac & cheese (Velveeta shells?) and baked beans (Bush's?) as our two sides. All the meats were good, sides average). Surprisingly, only about four other small groups of diners on a Friday night, and it's a big place with picnic tables. Maybe the crowds were there earlier. Interesting, rambling, back-woodsy old shed with eclectic decor and good music. Would probably stop there again if we're in the area.
Jesse's has become our favorite fine dining restaurant in the Fairhope area. The whiskey steak, my favorite, is on Alabama's list of "100 things to eat before you die" and rightly so. Actually, everything we've had there is delicious, and they take as much care with sides as they do entrees. The ambience is upscale but cozy, and the servers are very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. I like that you never feel rushed even though they've always been busy when we've been there. It's not inexpensive, but well worth the price. They also have a good wine list and some scrumptious desserts. Highly recommend Jesse's!
My husband is from Cumberland and we always go to D'atri's whenever we visit family there. All of their food is delicious, but our favorite is the cheesesteak salad. The seasoned lettuce and hot and sweet peppers really take it over the top! Also love their pastas and Italian subs. Would definitely recommend it if you're in the area. It's always crowded, but if you have to wait it's worth it!
First of all, I'm a John Besh fan, so was looking forward to trying this restaurant while visiting the WWII Museum. My husband and I ordered the crab cake sandwich with fries. Big mistake!!! The crab cake was large, but seemed to be all filler and had no crab flavor whatsoever. It was served on a dry bun with a thick slice of tomato, a huge lettuce leaf, five whole, raw cloves of garlic (have never seen garlic on a sandwich served whole!) and no discernible remoulade sauce--worst crab cake we've ever had. Fries were small, thin and limp. Service was just OK. Would not go back.
We've been looking for a really good pizza place for a long time. We've found a few that are good, but the one we like best in Baldwin County so far is Vitolli's in Robertsdale. Our all-time favorite pizza place in the entire area is in Pensacola, but that's a long way to go on a regular basis! So, from now on, if we want to go "local" for pizza, it's going to be Vitolli's. It's small, cozy and seems to have a large local following. They also serve appetizers, salads, sandwiches, pasta and "Italian Turnovers" (pepperoni roll, stromboli, calzone, stuffed pizza slice) and desserts. Service is friendly and drinks are very inexpensive (domestic beers $2.75, imported beers $3.75, draft beer in a frosty mug $2.00-$2.50, and wine is $3.75 a glass).
We've been to La Rosso about six or seven times since they relocated here from the Eastern Shore Center. This location, with its checked table cloths and cozy decor is much more appealing than the former location. The food is always very good and the service friendly and attentive. My favorite dishes so far have been the chicken marsala and the beef with a bordelaise sauce. My husband really liked the beef teriyaki and grouper served on a boudin cake. Would definitely recommend it!
We went here for breakfast recently and were very disappointed. One of their specialties, the ultimate biscuit, had very little of the eggs, cheese and bacon it was supposedly stuffed with, and the biscuit was dry and hard. My husband's ultimate biscuit was a little better since he ordered his with sausage gravy over it--which gave it some much needed moisture. The service was fine, but food not good enough for a return visit.
We stopped here last week on our way home from the Pensacola Airport. We wanted pizza and the rave reviews on Yelp led us to Sky's. We LOVED this pizza! It was so good, I am going to revise some of my more generous reviews for other pizzas we've tried since moving to Lower Alabama two years ago. Since we live an hour away, I think we'll bring several home to freeze next time we go there. If you're in the area and you like New York style pizza, you must try Sky's!!!
We've been to this location several times on recent trips to Jacksonville. We've also dined at the one in McLean, VA. The food has always been very tasty, the portions large (we especially like their lasagna), and the service outstanding. I think they must have a very good training program for their wait staff, because their knowledge of the menu and wine list as well as their general demeanor sets their service apart from most chain restaurants. We also feel the food is better than most of the other Italian chains. An added bonus--you get a free "to go" meal if you order entrees from their "classics" menu (lasagna, spaghetti and meatballs, fettuccine Alfredo, etc.). We also enjoy the casual old school ambience and reasonable prices--it's a great place to take friends when you want a pleasant dining experience in a relaxed atmosphere.
We love Mediterranean food and haven't found any such restaurants in the Fairhope-Daphne area. So, based on all the rave reviews on Yelp, we went here for lunch yesterday. Wow--best gyro we've had in a long, long time. Also enjoyed the side of tomato-spinach orzo. Friendly service and very reasonable prices. We were delighted to learn they're opening a store in Daphne in about a month (former Marble Slab Creamery location)! We will be "frequent flyers" for sure!
