There’s nothing to hate about this place but also not much to love. The food is very mediocre (not terrible but certainly not good). To be honest there are way better places nearby for the same price point.

Went specifically for low country fare. Food was okay—fried chicken was bland, altho’ i did appreciate how crispy it was. Mac n cheese… okay, coleslaw…okay

Husband recd wrong order… brisket tacos is what he ended up w but he ordered brisket lunch entree.

Table next to us…had to wait forever for a cheeseburger. Waiter didn’t charge them or us for mishap, …. But as it was slow inside and out it was surprising.

Might return, but won’t be rushing. Shame. It’s one of my favorite types of fare.

The eggs Benedict were delicious and the biscuits were fresh and flakey and crumbly (in a good way, of course). Will be coming back here.

Delicious meal at Due South. We were dining outside and a storm rolled in. Due South pleasantly accommodated any outdoor diners who needed to move inside.

The meal was delicious. My husband loved his salmon and my strawberry and burrata salad was delicious.

Good food mostly. The sauce on the pork chop was odd - too sweet and charred. The pork chop itself was great. All the other food was good

Great food, really enjoyed the brisket. My only flag would be this - if you're sitting in the outdoor seats, pick your timing carefully - the sun can be very bright near the end of the afternoon. It's a little thing, but worth pointing out.

Food is outstanding, and we had excellent service from our waiter. The hostess was not very friendly and wanted to put us at a table that was impossible for our group.

Waitress was very inattentive. We had to ask a hostess for a waiter to help us. She showed up unapologetic. And the same type of attention continued throughout the meal. Food was delicious.

If you love food from the South via the frying pan, this is the place for you. If not, there are a few good salads, wonderful cornbread in a cast iron skillet and one of the nicest locations in DC.

The lukewarm biscuits were delicious, but the other food items ordered tasted awful. Shrimp and grits was more like weird tasting spicy gravy and grits. Crab fritters were overcooked- fried too dark and hard. Cole slaw vegetables were wilted and dressing was a sloppy weird tasting mess. The greens also had an off-putting sweet-vinegary taste.

In the women’s restroom, there is a farm style sink with two sets of faucets. The soap dispenser is mounted above shoulder height on the wall to the right and there are stalls to the left of the sink area. After I finished using the restroom, I was standing at the sink using the set of faucets to the right next to the wall and the soap dispenser. An employee exited the other bathroom stall, rinsed her hands WITHOUT SOAP and left to resume working. She would have had to reach over (or go behind) me to access the soap dispenser mounted on the wall over my right shoulder. Granted, you never know what goes on behind closed doors at a restaurant, but I will never go back to this place ever. Terrible day ruining experience.
