Overall my dining experience was good, but the flavor of the catfish was lacking and the berry salad had too many components, it would have been better without the corn because the blue cheese overpower the flavor of the corn. The others in our party enjoyed their fried chicken very much!

I went to dinner with 3 friends.
I had the Shrimo and Grits, it was Amazing! I ate every last bite. When it arrived I was concerned it wouldn’t fill be but it certainly did.
Unfortunately it my friends birthday and she had the friend chicken and she said meat was not well seasoned only the skin. She was not happy but chose not to send it back. Her sister had the pork chop which was Good , seasoned and tender but a bit too salty.

Jazz brunch on Sunday morning.
Outstanding live jazz ensemble and vocalist. Heartstopping delicious Southern food including biscuits and gravy, greens, peach cobbler and sweet potatoe pie in addition to brunch favorites like ham, roast beef, omelets and waffles made to order and bottomless mimosas.
As if that isn't enough, they send you home with a take home meal in a shopping bag!

Brunch was very large and outstanding, but it also included an entire additional entree that could be taken to go. We were not locals and were flying out, so could not take advantage of that to have an entire additional meal to take home. As a result we felt a large amount of food was wasted on use and would have preferred the option for a lower price rather than more food!! That is why we did not feel is was good value for the price. Would not recommend the Sunday Brunch for tourists for this reason. Seating is very close together so conversations on either side of our table were shared, which is why ambiance is rated low.

We had to leave early due to illness of a member of our party. The staff and manager were so kind and did not charge although we had been delivered drinks and delicious looking bread. In the midst of the quick departure, I dropped my glasses, and they were quickly found and returned. Will definitely return.

If your looking for some great southern cooking look no further. Take it from someone that lives in the low country of Charleston SC for many years, this place would beat some of the best there. Just know that it's a little cramped and dress attire should say very casual.you have to try the chicken livers, fried chicken and I don't know what they did to the brussel sprouts but they were delicious and I normally hate them.

Food was outstanding, service was on point. Only problem we had was with the Hostess. We asked to sit outside at a table against the building. We were told we couldn't as they were saved for guests of 3 or more. We were celebrating our 1st Wedding Anniversary and stated that when we made our reservation. We also noticed two guests sitting at a similar table. Bathrooms had a really horrific odor as well needed to be cleaned.

I’m from Memphis, so I love good Southern comfort food and this place DELIVERS! The food was fabulous! I had a rough time choosing but decided on the Devil Shrimp entree and it did NOT disappoint! Very delectable and light. Perfect for lunch. My companions had the Jumbalaya and steak salad. They also loved their meals. There were so many things on the menu I would have liked to try that I’m definitely headed back again. Great location. Nice indoor and outdoor seating. Give this place a try! You won’t be disappointed! Especially if you like good Southern down home cooking in a more upscale environment.

The food and atmosphere at this restaurant are good. Bar drinks are great. However, there are other local soul food restaurants with better tasting food that is less expensive. The lower value score is in comparison to the local competition.

I make it a point to head to Georgia Brown’s whenever I’m in Washington. The food and atmosphere are both great, and the service was great. The scallops were wonderful and were accompanied by brussel sprouts which were cooked perfectly. You will not be disappointed if you stop in for a meal.

Food was excellent! Lots of good standard breakfast fare, good-looking roast beef, ham, turkey at a carving station, great omelettes, eggs-to-order and Belgian waffles. They also had Jambalaya, peel-and-eat shrimp, lots of fruit and salad. They had just about everything (oddly, no pork sausage patties, though). A great bonus: You also had your choice of several great entrees that you could eat with your brunch or take to go. My wife and I had the shrimp and grits - absolutely outstanding when re-heated later for supper! The place was very loud (maybe too loud for conversation), but the volume all came from a really good jazz band, so who would complain about that? This will be a new go-to for special occasion brunches for us.
