Dauphin Island is a town in Mobile County, Alabama, United States, on a barrier island of the same name (split by the Katrina Cut), at the Gulf of Mexico. It incorporated in 1988. The population was 1,238 at the 2010 census. The town is included in the Mobile metropolitan statistical area. The island (originally named "Massacre Island") was renamed for Louis XIV of France's great-grandson and heir, the dauphin, the future Louis XV of France. The name of the island is often mistaken as "Dolphin Island"; dauphin is "dolphin" in the French language.

We arrived late Sunday afternoon and tried to go on Monday. They are not open Mon or Tues. Arrived Weds morning about 715 to a LINE! Order muffins, turnovers and a cinnamon roll to go with the breakfast I was making for the family. The cinnamon roll was HUGE. It was gone before I was done cooking. I had one small bite and it was good. The turnovers were also good. I did not get to try the muffin. It was shared and gone before I sat down to eat. I was told I would be going back before we ended our vacation

Plug in the address to your GPS, otherwise you may get lost as it is located behind a golf course. It is very, very casual, but the food is good as is the service. The waitresses were very attentive. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the sunny day.

We arrived on the island LATE afternoon Sunday with dwindling options. My wife found Jr's and it was a good meal. Two seafood platter for my wife and daughter looked good. My shrimp poboy was good. Bar upstairs for over 21. They take food up. No alcohol can come down. Good food and the view at sunset should be worthy. We were too late.

Early dinner on The deck. The locals were inside but the northern set outside. It was lovely. I ordered shrimp and grits. Wonderful. Then our daughter decided we needed dessert. I AM GLAD SHE DID! The bread pudding was wonderful. There were several lower ratings on YELP (We look at both) . Glad I ignored them and trusted the last clue reviews. Go! Enjoy.

Dority's Bar & Grill

Reviewed By cindyannsmith - Huntsville, Alabama

Not quite sure how to rate this place. I understand the menu changes but tonight it was pretty much a burger or a burger. I found a burger that sounded great but they wouldn't put a different kind of cheese on it. How hard is it to substitute a slice of cheese? So I chose a different burger that was excellent although I'm not sure it was a $12 burger. Plus the sides were potato chips or potato salad. No substitutes. I don't eat either so it was just the burger. Our other burger was very good as well. Just a bit pricey. Ambiance is just adorable. Very cute and hip. I hear the live music nights are wonderful. So again, conflicted.

We stayed on the island and would ride our bikes every morning to get one of their breakfast biscuits. Biscuits are light and fluffy, just like moms. Reasonably priced. Lunch specials look good but we haven't tried them yet. Staff is super!!
