I’ve dined at the restaurant before but it had been a few years and wanted some southern cooking. I atmosphere is nice but I was not impressed with my meal. I started with the she crab soup which was quite bland. For the entree I had the Jambalaya. The 3 small shrimp were rubbery and the 2 chicken strips and 1 piece of sausage cut long ways were over cooked & dry.

My second time at Georgia Brown's for their jazz brunch, and it did not disappoint! My favorites were the grits, paella, peel and eat shrimp, bacon, and bottomless mimosas! Our server, Nelson, ensured that we were well taken care of and met all of our needs. Another wonderful experience!

Great Southern dishes. Think Fried Green Tomatoes, Jambalaya and Gumbo which are all delicious. Good service, live jazz band. Fully booked so advise making a reservation.

Well, I can only say we were disappointed. It was a Girls Weekend and we heard much about this restaurant. We made reservations but had to change tables because there wasn't enough room for 5 people. Our waiter was great. The food was not worth the money. I ordered the She-Crab soup that had very little flavor, and a chicken dish that I can't even remember. One of my friends did say the shrimp and grits were good, but the rest was just so-so. Sorry, can't recommend it.

I went there on a dinner date. Both my guest and I were disappointed with our meals. My date had the Buttermilk Fried Chicken that was flavorless, and certainly not resembling of anything you’d call Southern cooking. I had the Shrimp and Grits. Having lived in Charleston SC for awhile I was feeling nostalgic. The portion size was very small for an entree costing $28, and the taste and flavor were subpar. I’ve had Shrimp and Grits at several other local restaurants that were 10x better including Vola’s Dockside Grill in Old Town Alexandria, or even Matchbox at Pentagon City.

I’ve been to Georgia Brown’s before in years past when the food was stellar. I highly recommend the Culinary Team get back to putting the love and magic back into the plate before they lose all of the following this renowned restaurant once had.

It was ok. Being from the south, I was expecting better fried chicken and homestyle fare. It wasn’t bad, but I have definitely had better. Probably as good of Southern food as you’ll get in DC though.

My wife and I recently went to Savannah, GA, and loved it. We loved it so much that I was excited to plan her birthday at Georgia Brown's. The food, service, and overall restaurant experience was great. We loved the fried green tomatoes, gumbo, and apple pie! Our server was great and, although we weren't there for live music, the music playing and the whole restaurant was perfect. I would suggest this place for any occasion. Thank you Georgia Brown's!

Great food and service, although we were in and out in 45 minutes. Would have liked more time to savour the food and relax over our last glass. Servings are very large, so take care not to over-order.
