T.P. Crockmiers Restaurant & Bar

This past weekend Marty and I were at the Mobile Opera, helping them to kick off their new 2022 season. They have an exciting schedule planned for this year. Operas by Donizetti, Adolphe, and Puccini are in the works. And we love to support organizations that exert a powerful influence on us as human beings. Music can boost memory, build task endurance, lighten your mood, reduce anxiety and depression, stave off fatigue, and improve your response to pain. The show, complete with all the drama, adds intrigue to our lives, and if you are interested to see what the Mobile Opera offers, you can visit their site. Saturday, when we were there, we had a blast; we even got a behind-the-scenes look at the next show. After all the excitement, we decided to walk across the street, for lunch, over to a restaurant that began in 1875—originally established on the corner of Peachtree and Walton Streets in Atlanta, Georgia, as a place that would appeal to Atlanta’s finest. T. P. Crockmier became the place for conversation and good fellowship. Another T. P Crockmiers opened in Mobile, Alabama, at what used to be called the Florida Bowl and was in business in Mobile for over 50 years. Now, it is conveniently located in downtown Mobile where Marty and I enjoyed a streetside view of the town during lunch.

Start with a nice bottle of Rose’, then try an appetizer. I couldn’t resist the Ribeye sandwich, grilled and topped with sauteed onions and bell peppers. Also topped with lettuce and tomato, then served on authentic New Orleans French bread. Yum! I left off the bell peppers, though, since they do not like me. Marty ordered the Mahi Mahi, grilled and blackened with whipped potatoes and broccoli.

A great choice if you are trying to get your Omega vitamins. We really enjoyed our meal and the nice atmosphere. There was a birthday party going on next table over, such a great place to have a party like this, meet a friend for lunch, or date night. There is a beautiful bar with a multitude of drink combos or dining outside, and people watch.

Don’t forget dessert! They offer bread pudding, TP’s Brownie, or Crème Brulee. They even serve weekend brunch, so if you want a Sunday lunch out after a visit to the Saenger theater, then stop here, as many other places are closed on Sundays in downtown Mobile. T.P Crockmiers is located at 250 Dauphin St. in Mobile, Alabama. For more Keeping It Local, you can follow us on our blog.
