- I will be visiting again soon!OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/19/2014The food, the service, the miosas, everything was absolutely wonderful. It was my first visit there, and it definitely will not be my last. I couldn't have picked a better place to have a birthday brunch at! Keep up the fantastic work!Special Features:
- Great for brunchOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 10/19/2014We went for Sunday brunch and rolled out stuffed. Great atmosphere, great jazz and excellent food.Special Features:
- Still One of DC's Best Brunch SpotsAndyDined on 10/19/2014The staff and experience are outstanding as always. Stick with the southern cooking related brunch items, which are also outstanding. The typical brunch items are good but not nearly as memorable or yummy as their specialties (e.g., grits and jambalaya).Special Features:
- Wonderful!OpenTable Diner Since 2003Dined on 10/18/2014Great food, energetic atmosphere, find service. This was Howard's homecoming weekend, so the wait was extensive. The host accommodated our last minute request to boost from 4 to 5 people with grace. Great experience all around!Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 10/18/2014We really like this restaurant. Washington in general is not the greatest place for really good food. High prices and average food is the norm. Georgia Brown's is none of that. Good food , good service, reasonable prices for the area. This place is a really good choice for eating out in the downtown DC area.Special Features:
- AMAZING!MVC8Dined on 10/18/2014From the service to the starters to the meal and dessert-- this is by far the best Saturday brunch I've had in DC. Perfection.Special Features:
- Great Find!OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/17/2014Georgia Brown is an upscale restaurant serving Southern cuisine, outstanding personalized service, and a unique variety of selections in all categories of the menu. All ethnicities can be found enjoying the atmosphere while you listen to the best of old school but relaxing R & B music. Service is fast despite the crowd. I went on a Friday for my birthday. They are correct in suggesting you make a reservation. We were seated quickly and ahead of a large group that entered just in front of us. The staff made quite an impression! Will definitely visit again and suggest to others.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Southern FoodChicNYNights911Dined on 10/16/2014Overall the restaurant has a great ambiance but the food. Unfortunately I was not impressed. Super bland and thankfully they had Crystal's hot sauce to add some flavor to the catfish. I'm from the south (Texas) and this is not southern food at all.
- Unique menuBostonfoodsDined on 10/12/2014Me and my boyfriend dined here on our last night in Washington DC. We had experienced horrible food and mediocre service at all the other resteraunts we had been to during our stay until we came here. We are from Boston and were looking for a menu that was not something we could get at home, and this place was it! Everything was great from the drinks to dessert.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Quality slipping?DCVisitorDined on 10/12/2014Was at Georgia Brown years ago, and remember loving it. This time around - still loved the style, atmosphere and food choices, but the buffet was not well-stocked and the food was cold. Overall quality seemed to be a bit off. That being said, I would go back again because, really, it is a unique place.Special Features:
- What Happened To Georgia Brown's?OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/12/2014I hadn't been to here for 9 years, and while planning a girl's day out decided to choose it for brunch. BIG mistake! The restaurant is nothing as I recall it. The music was way too loud - in fact, it was deafening; the seating arrangements were so cramped; the breakfast food stations were nothing like before; and the carry-out lunch was the pits - I received one-third of what was given at my last visit and having ordered the fried chicken to go I had to inquire which part of the chicken it was as it was shriveled and unidentifiable. To top it all off, the price has almost doubled! Don't worry about me anymore, Georgia, I'll leave your restaurant to unsuspecting visitors who've never been or haven't been for a very long time!Special Features:
- Good brunch selection, but not goodMikeJDined on 10/12/2014We went to the Sunday brunch with the understanding that it would be among the best in town. We arrived right on time for our 10 a.m. reservation and had to wait 15 minutes for the restaurant to open for seating. (I guess it opens at 10). The spread was great, but they haven't mastered the different between cold foods and hot foods -- so cold foods were warm and hot foods seemed like they had been sitting out for a very long time. On the other hand, the jazz trio was great.
- A little dissapointed!OpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 10/11/2014I love Georgia Brown's!!! However, this time the food wasn't quite as good as normal. I'm not sure if it was because I had a 10:30pm reservation and they closed at 11pm, or what it was. I always have the fried chicken but, this time it wasn't cooked all the way done. The macaroni & cheese was delicious, just as the collard greens were. We also had the pecan pie, which was quite disappointing as well. Too many pecans and not enough filling. Our waitress was great!!! The staff is always friendly!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Two Hungry BritsBritsontourDined on 10/11/2014Found this gem just around the corner from our hotel via trip advisor. Booked thru open table. Staff were brilliant and the food & beer was fabulous. Never had proper soother good before so can't comment on authenticity but we loved it. Would highly recommend it.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- BirthdayspotDined on 10/11/2014My 3rd visit was as good as the first. It's my family's birthday spot. great food great server!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- 4206Dined on 10/11/2014Good location, well appointed restaurant with a friendly atmosphere - albeit crowded..........Excellent food - on par with the finer establishments in both Savannah and Charleston.....Specialty drinks are outstanding.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great findF8pamelaDined on 10/10/2014This place has great food and beautiful ambiance. I have been here a few times and they have yet to disappoint. I would strongly recomend Georgia Browns to anyone looking to enjoy an evening with friends and loved ones.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great as alwaysDowntownCSDined on 10/9/2014I only make it to Georgia Browns about once each year, and have been doing so for the past 15 years or so. It never changes and, in this case, that's a good thing. Food is a 10. Most recently, went with the she crab soup and the fried chicken.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good foodAKA1994Dined on 10/6/2014I ordered the salmon with cheese grits and it was good. The salmon could have been cooked a longer in the middle though.
- Very happyDinnerwithdaughterDined on 10/5/2014We dinned early (for us) at 5:45pm, and were the first ones to be seated for dinner. Despite that we got the worst table in the restaurant. I was seated in the walk way and asked by the hostess to move my chair closer to the table so others could walk through. I was a good sport about it, but annoyed at the table choice. Our waiter saved the night. He realized right away that this was not ideal location for a party of four and promptly offered us one of the other tables in his section. We happily moved and were very thankful. Our waiter was fantastic. Very knowledgable, friendly, and took great care of our party. The food was great, and I very much enjoyed the southern staples of sweet tea and fried green tomatoes. We will return.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Sunday brunchIcecreamDined on 10/5/2014Not worth the price: Act one: Entirely too many options of low-quality food. Salmon was awful!!! Disappointing! Should revisit menu to reduce quantity and improve quality. Act two: Sparse!!! The best feature was the ambiance (live band).
- Great southern cookingBluepintDined on 10/4/2014We ate at Georgia Browns to celebrate my wife's birthday. Nice decor inside. Tables are close like you might find in New York City but it was not intrusive. Menu has a lot of variety. Food was excellent. Service was good. Nice wine list and good selection of beers. We were visiting from out of town but will eat here again when in DC again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always a winnerOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/4/2014This has been the second time I've come, and it's a great experience each time. The food is amazing and the service is wonderful! I would recommend this to anyone.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Was greatReturntodcDined on 10/3/2014Cuisine used to be impeccable- perhaps it was an off day, but the food wasn't as great as I recalled from the last time I visited DC.I would recommend this to a friend.
- MehJohneboyVIPDined on 10/1/2014Picked this place from the Open Table reviews, and the Low Country menu excited me. I was looking for something different than steaks or Italian. Sat at a bar table to watch baseball, so the bartender was the server. He was actually great - pretty attentive, considering he was handling the bar and the bar area tables. Started with a signature drink (peach martini - don't judge me). Kind of lame. Deviled eggs were mixed (bacon ones - good, crab ones - bland). I asked if the shrimp and grits were awesome, and he told me yes. Not so much. They came in a broth - never had them like that in Charleston. Beer selection limited. Overall, it was just OK. I left hungry and disappointed. I should have gone for Italian.Special Features:
- Highly recommendedOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 10/1/2014Really enjoyed the evening of great food and great jazz. The fried chicken with succotash and mashed potatoes was delicious as was the steak with collards and mash. Not noisy at all as some reviews have said but it was definitely lively. Wish I lived in DC so I could come back!Special Features:
- Noisey and blandCH25VIPDined on 9/29/2014Not spectacular food. I ordered fried chicken. It arrived lukewarm.
- Just OkDrtchrisDined on 9/29/2014I had high expectations for this restaurant which may be why I was left feeling like the experience was just ok. Not great. The biscuits served on arrival were excellent, cornbread OK. Waiter was over-patronizing and poured our wine way too often, which is annoying (I know should have told him to stop!). Then was no where to be seen whencheck was required. Chided me for taking home leftovers. Food was good, but not memorable or outstanding. Fried catfish was good, accompanying rice was dry and overcooked. Devil shrimp also slightly overcooked and crab stuffing had too much breading for my taste (from MD!). The spinach was excellent. Wine list is very pricey, no reasonable choices under $50 which I hate, come on!! Won't go back.
- Attended 9/28OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 9/28/2014FOOD WAS AMAZING. GREAT MENU OF BUFFET ITEMS as well as ENTREE. Nice music. Relaxed atmosphere. Service was okay, but noticed server accommodated a large section of tables (may have just been overwhelmed). Overall great place and would like to return.Special Features:
- Great DC Restaurantlive2eat20245Dined on 9/28/2014This is an awesome restaurant! A great experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fitting end to DC weekOregonTravelerDined on 9/28/2014I was looking forward to the Jazz Brunch @ Georgia Brown's for our last day in DC and was not disappointed. However, you have to be prepared for a LOT of food. The three "acts" of buffet, entree and dessert can be overwhelming, so if you have a way to take the entree with you and have it for dinner, that would be recommended. We sat near the Jazz Trio and thoroughly enjoyed the music. As this was not an inexpensive venture, saving it for a special occasion might be the way to fit it into your budget. But the great and delicious food, the terrific service and the wonderful ambiance so close to the White House was just what I was looking forSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Incredible FoodGreatnessDined on 9/27/2014Food was amazing, service was speedy!Definitetly a great dining experience. Not the most intimate because of so many people but thats understandable the food is so good ofcourse everybody wants to eat there. A1 for sure!!Special Features:
- Worst hostess in the world!OpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 9/27/2014We arrived at 7:58 PM dinner reservations for 8 PM. One of the people in our party was sitting at the bar so we proceeded to say hello and get one drink at the bar. At 8:06 PM I checked in at the hostess table in which she replied "what timere is your reservation?" When I said 8 PM she said "I didn't see you at 8 PM (6 mins ago) and I don't have a table for you and I don't know what to tell you and maybe sometime tonight I'll have a table. I thought maybe she heard me incorrectly so I said "it's only 8:06pm and she replied "I don't know what to tell you." This lady really needs to be trained on how to speak to customers!!! I spoke to a very nice gentleman at the front desk in about 30 seconds later we had a table.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Family CelebrationfoodieatheartDined on 9/27/2014Sweet Georgia Brown, I would like to start by saying that you made our dinning experience for our daughter 20th birthday very enjoyable. The service from the valet parking to the very end was great. The server and all the dishes was simply awesome and we had a great time. My wife and I look forward to having a date night there to try few of the other dishes on the menu.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Mom's Birthdaytito86Dined on 9/27/2014We visited on a Saturday evening at 6 p.m. It was busy but, the service was exceptional! The food was very good as well. I had the lamb chops and the side were lukewarm and that is my only complaint. Overall, one of the better places to dine in the area! Enjoy your visit.Special Features:
- Great for groupsadamdwightgDined on 9/27/2014Came here on a Saturday afternoon -- Deeply appreciated that GB's will accept weekend reservations & not make you wait to call in the early evening ON Saturday to place one (many new places in DC do this, which is tough when people are coming in from out of town). Staff was nice, waiter was extremely helpful & patiently explained items on the menu for an adventurous person in our group who wanted more info. We got the deviled-egg sampler for our appetizer & felt that the texture of crab and egg do not really go together well. Shrimp and grits I had were tasty, as were any of the dishes we tried that included a broth, but be sure to ask, since the chefs re-imagine many traditional dishes, i.e. Jambalaya is actually served w/o broth.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2002VIPDined on 9/26/2014Too loud cannot hear conversation. Food is mediocre
- OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 9/24/2014The best thing about the evening was the valet parking and biscuits/cornbread before dinner. She crab soup and crabcakes were subpar. Fried meatloaf was good. Noise level was a detractor from enjoyment. Service was ok, nothing special.Special Features:
- The Georgia Brown's experienceMsGeorgiaPeachDined on 9/24/2014This is my third visit to Washington DC on business. During my first visit, individuals whom I met during my stay introduced me to Georgia Brown's as a must do activity when visiting DC. After that first dining experience, I have made it a point to make Georgia Brown's a staple when I visit DC. This time, I stayed overnight and introduced my husband to the wonderful ambience, service and food. Additionally impressive to him is that when we arrived at the restaurant, we had a waiting reservation which I made on-line prior to leaving New Jersey. I will always use OpenTable to reserve a place at Georgia Brown's. And I will always make a point to dine at Georgia Brown's when visiting DC.Special Features:
- Excellent Service and foodWVcoupleDined on 9/24/2014Short notice reservation. ABOVE excellent service. I was there to catch up with my brother who I had not seen for some time. We were absolutely in no hurry at all but the waitress constantly checked on us and made sure we knew we were being looked after. Often, after you get a meal the service dwindles or disappears but not this occasion. Our waitress kept up with us and made us feel extra special. On top of that, the food was amazingly good. Best chicken livers I have ever had. I went light and still took home half of my meal. Great music and even though the place was super busy, we had no trouble conversing and having a wonderful time. I can comfortably say that we will be repeat customers whenever we visit DC. Thanks!Special Features:
