Family group of 7 dined here on the Saturday before Mother’s Day. We ordered the party platter which has shrimp, fish, crab claws, chicken, pickles, hush puppies, and cole slaw. It was enough to feed six people out of our group (one of our members...More

One of my new favs on the Gulf! Food was good and fresh and the service was classic friendly Alabama. Don’t expect classy white table cloth experience though. The building has seen a lot of storms and salt air over the years. Could spend lots...More

If I based this review only on the food I would give the Mariner a 5 but there were a few issues that take away from an otherwise nice family dinner. Most everyone in my party ordered the seafood platter which looked great but I...More

This restaurant on the Dog River, south of Mobile, is truly a fish place. We were there with cousins sharing some camaraderie and it was a local hangout for them. The Whitefish Almondine was recommended, and we were so glad we listened. It was so...More

The service was really great. Jan 24th was a slow night, and we have found that usually when a restaurant is slow, so is the service - but not here. The server was friendly and efficient. Our appetizer of crab claws was great. The claws...More
