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!!

I came for brunch around 12:15 and they had already ran out of biscuits so half the brunch menu, which is already limited, was unavailable. I'm vegetarian and they only had one valid option which was the veggie hash and sunny side eggs. pretty good. and I also had a waffle....10/10 it came with butter, chopped strawberries and this lovely caramel drizzle. I loved it. My friend got the breakfast burger and asked for no eggs but there were still eggs on her burger, but we're not really picky or ever like to give anyone a hard time so we still enjoyed ourselves. Also, the sweet tea...was not sweet at all. but our server was very nice! and the hostess was very kind as well!

It was my second time trying their brunch and wasn’t disappointed at all. Our waitress was working the bar and helping at tables so we understand why she was busy. It was a great time and the food was very good. The chicken and waffle meal was great. Also, the breaded pork chop was delicious and enough to eat the next day. Try this place if you want something delicious.

Small restaurant located in a strip mall. Food was delicious while service was extremely slow. If you are in a hurry I wouldn’t recommend it. But we were there without an agenda therefore it wasn’t bothersome. The food was absolutely delicious. Very different flare. We would definitely go back!

The shrimp and butter beans was well seasoned-spicy.
Desserts were well presented and tasty.
No soups, so we shared a dinner salad as no side salad was on menu.
Few tables, mostly booths - and separated for social distance.

My father-in-law made a surprise visit to NOLA. I am so happy I found Brown Butter on OpenTable when searching for a last minute reservation to accommodate 5 on Valentine’s Day. The service was impeccable! The food was even better! The brisket mac & cheese is hands-down one of the best entrées I have eaten in a very long time! We will go back many times!

What a cute place. Great southern feel. Food was delicious and that Nashville chicken sandwich was so spicy and tasty. A little weird that their beer list was written naming the beer name for some and just the brewery for others. The art on the wall was cool. Our server was informative and came over just the right amount of times. Would return.

My daughter and I brought my 8 year old granddaughter for brunch. She was so disappointed that they didn’t have hot chocolate. The owner personally went to a local coffee shop and brought her one. Our waitress was amazing and turned what could have been a miserable meal into a joyous one. The food was wonderful, the chicken and biscuits was off the hook and we now have a new fave place.
