Great atmosphere! – Not only have I always enjoyed Cobb Lane's out door seating, but recently we came by for their wine and oyster special. Not only did the bartender know thier wine list in and out, but was very entertaining. Their bar area has been renovated and I found the changes very refreshing. Our drinks ended up turning into dinner, being a vegetarian I found their crab cakes and she crab soup wonderful! Cobb Lane impressed me with their change into a comfortable place to enjoy not only dinner, but happy hour as well!
Good Atmosphere - TERRIBLE SERVICE – Six of us attempted to have lunch at Cobb Lane today. We were seated outdoors in the pleasant courtyard. After about 15 minutes passed, we were given menus. Another 15 minutes passed before we were given water. About 10 more minutes passed until the waiter took our orders. We flagged our waiter down to ask for bread after seeing that other tables had it. After an hour, three of us received our She-Crab soup, which was only average. Other diners had ordered, received food and finished eating by now.
We asked a waiter why the service was so slow, and he VERY rudely replied that we were NOT their only customers - that a large number of people were inside. There were people at five other tables outside and only one was a large group - about 8-9 ladies.
Finally after more than an hour, we gave up on getting our main course. We told the waiter that we had to leave and get back to work. Needless to say, regardless of the pleasant atmosphere and the food that people tell us is pretty good, we will not return to Cobb Lane.
Great brunch!! – Not too many places to enjoy brunch in Birmingham. This definately makes up for that.
OK eating, Romantic atmosphere – I loved the atmosphere. Service was great. Meal not what I had expected.
