Carolina cuisine and you'll be happy dining here, either at lunch or dinner. The food is consistently well prepared. They do a busy lunch business, so suggest reservations.

The food was good but the services was lacking. We waited quite a bit during courses and was not asked if we wanted a refill on drinks until the end. My husband got the brisket and he said that it was dry. The crawfish dip was delicious and my burger was good.

Glasses were dirty. Asked for clean ones and staff fought against it. Waited over 10 min before anyone came to out table. Ppl around that came in after us that weren't even seated at a table we're getting their orders taken. After almost 15 min waiter finally acknowledged us and still didn't ask for our order. We decided to leave due to extremely poor service. Not sure if I will return. And I even had a reservation.

My friend loves Eggs Benedict; However, she is super hard to please as she is particular about it being done exactly right. After two years of seeing her disappointed if they egg doesn't break perfectly or the sauce being basically water consistency. She finally was super happy because the Egg Benedict with the pork is amazing and perfect. The service was excellent they are on top of the mimosa refills. Over all, great experience and will definitely be back to try all the other menu items.

I was looking for somewhere nice and new to take my date and was able to find Due South when I arrived we were great nicely and sat right away and the view was really nice. Our server Maggie was amazing and the food and drinks were just as fabolous. The prices were reasonable and the food portions were good but it would be nice to have a bit more vegetables and fish I hope to come back when it gets warmer with friends or another date.

I did not like the fact that there was a mid-day only menu. Our party of six did not like the fact that we could not order from the main menu until 5pm. When I made my reservation online it would have been nice to mention the mid-day menu and the time limits.

Best wine pour among Navy Yard establishments. It is amazing how stingy other places are. The worst are the ones that bring you a beautiful wine glass then use a small glass container to fill your wine glass less than 1/3 full.

Food is excellent, great location.

We will dine there again.

Middle of the afternoon, not many people and my server was much more interested in the two single women than on helping other customers. Needs more training. Middle room.

Met a friend there for late lunch on a snowy day, and had a lovely time there. Our waitress was very efficient, polite, and kind. After being seated at a small table for a while, but noticing larger, more comfortable booths available, we were able to change with no problem. Had a very relaxed lunch...smoked chicken wings were delicious...catfish po boy was very good, and we split the peanut butter pie for dessert. It was good...not great! The collards were scrumptious but would have been as good without as much meat. Overall, I would definitely go back! Nice find in Navy Yard area.

The food ranking is strictly because I’m from NC and the pulled pork at the restaurant was soggy. That’s not how we do it in the south. I don’t mean soggy with sauce, just soggy. Everything else was perfect.
