John Word's gets jazzy
By Kinnon Phillips
The Captain's Table Restaurant on the causeway near the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park has undergone an extreme makeover. They have kept the World War II theme, but have put in new tables, chairs, carpet and paint, featuring John Word's Restaurant and Jazz Cafe.
While the lounge area used to be separate, they have torn down the wall and have put in a stage, dance floor and a grand piano. John is returning to the roots he established downtown on Dauphin Street back in the 80s with a focus on brining well-known jazz acts to town. In fact, John brought to Mobile, Grammy award winner Roy Meriwether with his trio to perform. I encourage you to check out the new digs and music. See the Entertainment page for upcoming music. There is little jazz to be had here and it is nice to see that John is investing in bringing acts to Mobile for extended engagements.
