Absolutely loved dining at Due South! The food was SO delicious and the ambiance was great. I did not drink, but my friends that were with me did and said the cocktails were superb. Also: please never ever take the squash hush puppies off the menu.

I brought my boyfriend here for brunch for his birthday and Austin was our server. He was attentive, made sure our bottomless mimosas were refilled in a timely manner and provided us with excellent recommendations. The portion sizes are large (in a good way) and the food was fantastic! The biscuit basket was delicious. I definitely can’t wait to come back!

We had some friends visiting from out of town and had a few restaurant fails before Due South. The staff was outstanding. From the manager Colin to the waitress to the folks busing the table. The food was delicious, and we had a great time. Well done.

Great food. Nice views from most seats. Fun vibe in the restaurant. Wish we lived in DC so we could go here again. Menu was awesome. Our picky daughter could order a burger and fries, while more adventurous family members went for some unique dishes, which were all delicious.

Service was horrific. I saw the waitress when she took our order and then not again until she gave us the check. Plus she misled us about a menu item and I couldn’t get it corrected since she never checked on us, so I had to pay for something I definitely didn’t want. So lazy.

The food was delicious, the service was a little slow because it was very crowded. There was a game at NAT Park that evening.

Loved the food and location! Great service, too. I had the half-rack of ribs which was delicious and filling! We were grabbing dinner before a Nats game. The only downside was that the sun was setting during our meal so half of the table had to wear sunglasses (which didn't help much) and the other half was sweating from the sun's heat on our backs.

Seated promptly, even though very busy due to post-baseball game crowd. Noise level a little high but both the food and waitress were exceptional. Definitely recommend!

They have a 3pm-5pm very limited midday menu not shown on this app. Keep in mind when visiting for early dinner or way late lunch.

Super friendly staff and always delicious. Best wings in town. Great drink offerings. Wish they’d consider turning the sound on the TVs by the bar during big games!

Due South was just okay for me. We wanted to start with the biscuits but they weren't available (bummer)! We ordered the smoke salmon and chicken biscuit. The smoke salmon was nothing special, just hard grits and sliced salmon placed on top. I was expecting a filet but it was just slices of meat. The chicken biscuit was plentiful but nothing special. I had higher hopes for the restaurant but it came up a little short for me. I would probably give it one more try and order their shrimp and grits or veggie omelet.

Great wait staff. Food was ok if you like the modern American flavor. It boasts southern cuisine, but it seems that the flavors are designed to attract non-Southerners. I'll go back, but I recognize that it's not exactly down home cooking. It's southern nouveau.

Everything was great. The lighting was a little harsh. Dimmers would be great for the overheads and especially the LED bulbs at the booths (one other booth was not as bright, we just unscrewed ours and screwed it back in before leaving). Great food and service.

Overall enjoyable experience. However, I asked to be seated in the smaller room so it was quieter for our get together with two friends we hadn't seen in 2 years. They recognized my reservation request and seated us there along with a 12 person party celebration - totally killing the reason for the request in the first place. You might have thought they would have made some other arrangements. Service was a bit slow and no one delivered our appetizer so that was a bit disappointing. The food was very good as expected....

We'll be back but not up to our past visits....
