I'll be in Mobile for a few nights in about six weeks with a group of 12 and am trying to figure out where to eat. I've combed the board to get some recommendations, and I'd appreciate any feedback folks have or suggestions of places I've left out. I think we are going to be staying at the Marriott on Airport Road just off 65 and we will be spending a fair bit of time at the Mobile Tennis Center (just north of Azalea Golf club). I think the Tennis Center is close to the Brick Pit, so we'll definitely hit that for lunch one day. Picklefish and Via Emilia are also relatively close. Thoughts? I thought we might go downtown one night: Noja, Wintzell's or Cafe 615? It seems Boiling Pot has a good po' boy and is close to the hotel, so it might be a place we hit. What about Osman's? It's also really close to the hotel. And breakfast? The only recs I noticed were Tiny Diny's and Spot of Tea; what will the drive be like to those two places? Some other places I'm considering are Callaghan's, Queen G's, Butch Cassidy's Cafe, La Pizzeria, Zorba the Greek, Dew Drop Inn, and the Jerusalem Cafe. Any thoughts on any of them?

    1. I would do Noja for dinner. I am not a fan of Wintzell's. For seafood I would go to the causeway - Original Oyster House, Blue Gill and Ed's are all good choices for dining with a view of the water. Make sure to order the Royal Reds (shrimp).

      Tiny Diny is a more southern breakfast - I prefer it to Spot of Tea. Callaghan's does a great burger and is in one of the prettiest neighborhoods in Mobile and after you can walk to Cream and Sugar for coffee and dessert. I like Dew Drop Inn for their cheeseburgers. Jerusalem Cafe is not worth the trip. If you like Pho, a good place is Pho 88 on Azalea right off Airport. We also like the Bicycle Shop for Mexican (downtown).

        1. I see everyone is steering us to the causeway for seafood. But I think we're going to be tired and looking for something closer. If we do get out there, Felix's, Ed's, Original Oyster House?

          2. I also may try to do some shopping Saturday morning. Where's the best outdoor market/farmer's market?
