Food was excellent, great service and they were very accommodating as our table wasn’t ready yet for our party of 6. Waiting time less than 10 minutes.

Our brunch was delicious. We started with the basket which included biscuits and cornbread waffles. We then had the honey cluckin' biscuit, the Seoul Burger and the short ribs which was the special of the day. All of our dishes were really good. We would highly recommend Brown Butter.

We had wine, beer and vodka to start followed by pate and fried brussel sprouts. Both excellent appetizers. Shrimp and butterbeans, brisket, cheeseburger and ribs over grits were all quite tasty. Service was great. We will return and not order as much so we can try dessert.

Tasty food and interesting choices! The bottomless mimosas were very bottomless! It’s a bit out of the main areas so an Uber ride; but worth it for a change of pace.

Took a larger family group for a birthday celebration after having such a great experience on Mother's Day. It was a very, very good overall experience again. Didn't quite reach the "excellent" mark this time only because the grits weren't hot and just a bit lumpy on the short rib dinner. That was minor with all excellent other courses and entrees at the table. I definitely recommend dining here. Really good cocktails too.

This was my first time at Brown Butter, and I will certainly be returning. The pate and creme brulet are probably the best I’ve ever eaten!! The service was outstanding, and their attention to the pandemic needs were outstanding. My main course was the short ribs, which were to die for, along with grits. Absolute thumbs up👍👍👍

Food was delicious--daughter had a perfectly prepared burger and fries with aioli and I had the Brunch Salad with a yummy mustard vinaigrette dressing. Limited but nice selection of beers, which changes periodically, and they have the best Bloody Marys in the city. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Our server was great and other servers would check also to see if we needed anything. The music was lively and staff and servers would sing and even dance as they passed each other. We sensed the comradery and mentioned it to the server. She relayed it is a great place to work and the owners are very caring. A very positive experience overall.

We stopped dining out on Mother's Day many years ago due to awful service and bad food, even at some of the finest restaurants. We decided to try again this year. It was PERFECT. Start-to-finish, every single thing that we had was delicious. The combinations of flavors were spot on. And the service was great. No rush to get us in and out. Loved it!

Food was absolutely horrible. We ordered chicken liver pate as an appetizer. It was a log of butter flavored with chicken liver. So hard that it was impossible to spread on bread. It was supposed to come with grilled ciabatta which instead arrived stale and cold. Fried pickles were fine but we decided to pass on dinner after the appetizer fiasco. We ordered brie, hazelnut and chocolate croissant hoping for dessert to be better but unfortunately this was the worst nutella croissant we have ever had. There was no sight of brie and croissant must have been reheated a few times before as texture was chewy and stale.

We had an excellent Sunday brunch this past week at Brown Butter. They take social distancing seriously. The server was friendly. The food is fresh and excellent. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable. You don't feel like you're dining in a strip mall (the location threw me the first time I went there). I've only ever been for brunch and lunch, and have always had a great meal.

We were looking for a place for breakfast/brunch on a Sunday AM and found this place through OpenTable. A quick glance at the menu online piqued our curiosity and we arrived when they opened at 9:30AM for our reservation.

We sat indoors, though outdoor seating is available. Our server was very attentive and we quickly decided on the Poutine to start. The flavor was amazing and I think the gravy really made the difference here.

For our main course I tried the Chicken and Waffle and it brought some serious spice to the table with the Nashville Hot Chicken breast, a jalapeño cornbread waffle, and candied jalapeños on top. The large serving was not finished and I took half of it to go. My friend tried the Brunch Burger and as massive as it was, he finished it.

There were a number of other options on the menu that deserve to be tried, but that will have to wait for our next visit.

Craft cocktails? OUTSTANDING.
We were under a speaker, so music was loud (and the speaker has a pop) but other than that, the food was great and the drinks were amazing

I had the Jalapeno chicken and Cornbread waffles that were delicious but very spicy. My husband had the lamb special that he really enjoyed. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We arrived around 30 minutes before our reservations and the host seated us immediately. Also, the air conditioner had the establishment freezing and when I asked if they could adjust the air, they did so immediately. Both my husband and I agreed that this is definitely an establishment we would visit again!!
