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 were large, meaty and the batter is uniquely different, but delicious. The fried flounder was... More

Tried this place on a recommendation, and it didn't disappoint. Service was friendly and fast. Food was excellent as was the atmosphere. This is a tucked away place a few minutes south of Mobile, and GPS is helpful to make sure you don't miss the turn. It's right on the Dog River, and the view is nice. There is outside... More

The sauté crab claws were delicious; the service was fabulous. Our drinks were awful...barely any liquor. A double did not have enough to be a single. Come for the food and service, but order a beer or wine.

This is a casual restaurant located above and adjacent to a working marina. You can dine inside and see the river through the windows or you can dine on the deck. The servers are friendly and good although not really special. They are more like what you find in a neighborhood restaurant. There is a small bar area at the... More

Watched fireworks from deck and able to see boats go by as eating. Great steamed crab claw and fish tacos!! My 10 year old was sold on deep fried whitefish that night.

Hidden restaurant, we used navigation to locate. Nice water views. Waited 15 minutes to be seated in almost empty dining room. Service could improve. Food prepared nicely with good portions. I ordered the stuffed flounder, others in our party orders shrimp and grits and fried shrimp and fish.

We met with our Flotilla Group from Turner Marine at the Mariner for a group dinner. It is everything you would expect it to be for a harbor-side restaurant. We ordered the shrimp & grits and the blackened burger. WOW that burger was AMAZING! I can't explain why but it was one the best burgers I've had, add on the... More

I saved an article several years ago about The Mariner Restaurant. We travel through Mobile when we visit family. Plug the address into your GPS anytime you are in the Mobile area. Don't let the outward looks be deceiving..............the food was DELICIOUS! We ordered a POUND of crab claws. They were huge and yummy! We then ordered the SEAFOOD SAMPLER.... More

It has been a couple of years since I was here, but at one time this was my favorite place for seafood, great crab claws, great outdoor sitting ( when not to hot) not a fancy place inside but the food was always good. this is truly a place where the local go.
