Tuscaloosa, AL is a wonderful large small southern city (or alternately a small large southern town), with a distinct college town flavor. It is blessed with lots of natural beauty including the foliage (it's called the Druid City because of all of the oak trees) and a great river view. Unfortunately not many of the local restaurants or bars take advantage of this view. The Lookout is almost ther only one that does. Located atop the Indigo Hotel (reviewed previously separately) it offers the absolutely best views of the river, bridges and sunset in Tuscaloosa. For that it is without equal. Unfortunately the food and drinks the Lookout are, at best, just average. The food tastes ok, but it is barely more than pub food and certainly not really anything I would recommend for a full meal. It is also WAY overpriced (at least for ther quality and quantity of food you receive). I absolutely hate that fact. I SO want this place to succeed. With the view and potential it has it could be as GREAT place. Unfortunately, the execution leaves a lot lacking. In full disclosure, it probably is more like a 3.5, but forced to choose, I would rather rate it a 3 in hopes that they will step up their game.

Some call it a sports pub kind of place, but it's nicer than that. Much cleaner, too. Food was good. Service very good. Lots of room inside and amply space outside. There are plenty of TVs to catch sports. We'll be back!

Central Mesa

Locally Owned and Operated Established July 2017 Fresh Ingredients Hand-made Tortillas Craft Tequila Cocktails

Reviewed By gingerbread1956

I thought the atmosphere at Central Mesa was nice & conducive to having a visit with an old friend.We were there for her birthday.Music was playing at an appropriate level;you could hear it but it didn't drown out your conversation.The food & drinks were average,although we had an awesome waitress.I was a little disappointed in the menu & food as I was hoping for more of a variety,especially some items that didn't contain all meat & drinks made with fresh juices. Salsa was served cold right out of refrigerator . I like mine room temp. or warm. I thought the entrees were a little over-priced,but you did get a generous portion.My friend said the sangria was very good.I would be willing to give it another go just because I liked the atmosphere.this was during the week so don't know what it's like on the weekends!

First time in Tuscaloosa. We walked over to this place form our hotel and were not disappointed we did. Food was fresh and very good. Service was excellent. Portions were a decent size and priced right. We were glad to have found this place so close to our hotel. A good meal is always pleasant after a day of driving!

We were in Tuscaloosa on a college visit with my daughter checking out the University of Alabama and stopped by on a whim. Nice selection of craft beers brewed on-site. They also have a great non-alcoholic root beer for the young ones. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Dog friendly as well. Great place to get a great beer if you are in Tuscaloosa

Reviewed By JohnF127

My girlfriend and I went here for a nice wine pairing dinner earlier this week. I have to admit, the entire evening greatly exceeded my expectations. I’ve always been impressed with the decor of this place, but the decor, the weather, the food, the service and the wine all came together for a truly great evening. The chef really out did himself in many different ways. The fried chicken, the fried Boudin, the smoked quail, and the various sides, were all perfectly cooked. The only part of the dinner that could’ve used a little more time on the grill was the lamb lollipop. The flavor was good, but in my opinion, could’ve been cooked longer, at low indirect heat, still maintained the rare temperature, which would’ve made it melt in your mouth. Either way, the overall dinner was a huge success. And the Cliff Lede and FEL wines paired with each course were perfect as well. Speaking of the wines, I am not a big fan of white wine. However, I must admit the Sauvignon Blanc was better than I’ve ever had. Good job Mr. Henson. Thank you so much for the review! I was lucky enough to be on the guest side and I agree with all that you mentioned! It means a lot to hear the kind words of encouragement especially when you saw all the preparation and thought put into the dinner. Hopefully youll come back during the summer! Hoping to have a few more wine dinners and events soon!

Five Bar

Reviewed By 25judyb

There's a good reason Five Bar is a top restaurant in T-Town....the food, the service, the drinks, and the atmosphere. It's everything you could possibly want from a bar / restaurant in a university town. The special drinks were with fresh muddled strawberries, not cheap strawberry flavor. The other special drinks were fresh and really good. I don't normally order special drinks because I find them mostly disappointing, but these were really good, and I will order them again. The service was outstanding....obviously students intent on making a good impression for the U of A, as they did.

My fiance and I ate dinner there this afternoon and our experience was amazing! Kaitlyn,our server was exceptional. She's extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We will definitely be back soon! And we will always ask for Kaitlyn to be our server. The food was incredible. We had the Royal Reds and the Redfish. The sweet potato cream burle was awesome. Also had the bloody marys with a oyster in the bottom of the glass! Everything was great. Kaitlyn was the best part of our experience. We are looking forward to returning to Halfshell very soon.
