We had the coolinary menu and everything was delicious. Cold corn soup was the star. Also had the catfish and grits which was outstanding as well.

The menu has changed around. Definitely missed some of the old items but the new ones were still delicious.

I actually ate here twice in one week, once with my husband, the other with my mother. Absolutely unbelievable. Maybe because I haven’t been out to eat in so long, I didn’t remember how amazing this kind of food tastes but holy moly. They have a new executive chef and the man is the 8th wonder. Ive never had pork chops like that in my life.

See y’all again soon.

The Pan Fried pork chop was delicious, however the Shrimp and beans were barely warm and virtually no flavor.

I never post reviews, but the meal I just had was so amazing, I made an exception. Service and atmosphere were terrific as well, but the Brisket Mac immediately rises to my top 5 entrees of all time.

We had a wonderful time here- as always!! The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was perfect! We celebrated my husband’s birthday this visit and had a party of 6. The table was comfortable and service was great! If you haven’t tried this place, you are missing out!! Lots of great food options, from apps to mains- you will not be disappointed!!

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.
