Our server was fantastic, despite being super busy she was on top of it. so thank you!! cocktails were fine (weird sipping them out of plastic cups - we need to stop doing that). Their house beer (DC South Lager) was on point. We only ordered fries, which were great :)

Place was pumping, well distanced, and good vibes!

Reservations was made the day before for 9/7 @ 2:15 and upon arrival the hostess was not able to locate my name. I showed confirmation of reservation but my party still had to wait 40 minutes before being seated.

Brunch! Great food, good drink list (beer, wine, and cocktails), and a friendly waiter (real southern hospitality!). The outdoor seating was nice.

The food was so good I came back for brunch the next day! I don’t think there’s a bad item on the menu so if you’re thinking about it, just get it.

Also I don’t eat desserts (like ever) but that bread pudding was amazing.

Best chicken and waffles I've had in the city. Everyone at the table enjoyed their meals (shrimp and grits and biscuits). Nice to have a homey, soulful meal in Navy Yard. They have a 75 minute time limit due to the pandemic, so make sure you get to your reservation on-time! The mimosas were good as well, and everyone on staff was friendly.

We had a function to go to so we wanted to have an early dinner. We were seated outside which was our preference. Everyone was wearing masks which we appreciated. We were served our drinks and shortly thereafter out dinners arrived. We were all very satisfied with out choices and the server was attentive.

As we were told we could only stay at the restaurant for 75 minutes. Were had been there about an hour and our server came by to tell us that we had 20 minutes left before we need to leave the restaurant.
It all worked out fine and everyone was happy.

Due South was fabulous! We felt very comfortable dining here thanks to their COVID precautions. We reserved an outdoor table and they had the tables appropriately spaced out and all staff was wearing masks. Food was delicious and location right by the water in the Navy Yard was a treat! What a lovely evening!

This was our first time visiting this restaurant and we will go back! The wings were amazing and we enjoyed trying a their house made sauces. Our waitress was very attentive answering any and all requests we had during our dining experience. Overall we enjoyed what Due South had to offer especially during limited dining due to Covid-19. My husband enjoyed his birthday dinner and plans to go back for lunch!

We were seated in the patio which was nice enough but in this time of social distancing they placed us like 2 feet away from another table on Father’s Day. We moved the table ourselves to allow for at least 6 feet but that was a disappointment in planning. Food was passable and it was a nice day but that was a planning faux pas. Waiter was very courteous.

Hostess wasn’t very good. She seemed so flustered that she was unable to handle the reservations that were present. Even by a brief acknowledgement of their waiting. but waitress was outstanding I’ve had her before and she takes service to the next level!

I've always enjoyed the food here. The Brussel sprouts and hummus are my favorite appetizers. Oh, how can I forget their cornbread - add that to my favorites. Honestly, you can't go wrong ordering anything off their menu. On a nice hot day, their Frozen Rose hits the spot.

My first time there and I had a splendid time. The service was wonderful and the food was fantastic. They even brought out dessert for my birthday! The place was quiet especially for a Saturday so my party and I could have great conversations and everyone could hear each other. I couldn’t ask for a better place to spend my 40th Birthday!

The food is delicious the service is terrible. We sat in the bar section where you had to go up to the bar to order your food and drinks. The food came it was delicious but when we were done we had to ask several times for our plates to be cleared away we ended up clearing them away ourselves. Even though employees were standing right next to us. The stupid thing is if we had actually sat at the bar the bar tenders serve the food, takes your drink order, and clear everything away. If you sit in the booth you have to do all of that yourself.
