Need some Mobile recommendations (moved from New Orleans)
I love The Mariner. I grew up eating there. It's a bit of a casual family joint (plastic diner glasses, some items come out in the little plastic baskets) that is on pile-ons overlooking a marina. Really great fried seafood, but the Grouper Almandine's really great, too. I even had my very casual rehearsal dinner there. Ask about the different batters if you're going to go with the seafood platter. The Original Oyster House is pretty great, too. But, my favorite is still The Mariner. Also, I really enjoy eating at The Bakery. They have good seafood, but a variety of other good dishes, too. If you're in the mood for ribs try out Dreamland BBQ.
