Food portions were huge! Enough for two people to share. Food was excellent and very flavorful. Enjoyed the entire experience and will be back.

Great food and service from Emily. It was Jazz night, so that added to the ambiance. One member of our four-person party has food sensitivities (Gluten). She had several great options, although you did not seem to have the gluten-free menu referenced on the website. In summary, our experience was excellent from the greeting at the front door through dessert!

Service and food were outstanding. Our mistake was being seated too close to the Jazz band, making it very hard to hear each other. Music was excellent, just too loud for that part of the dining room.

I love Georgia Brown’s but the service was rushed and the restaurant was incredibly loud add to that the music was so loud it seemed like a night club.

Food was tasty and best of all I had a nice time but I will think twice before going back.

Great value with a great selection of food to choose from on the brunch buffet. I also liked that you got to take a meal home. The noise level was a little high, which made conversation a little difficult. But it was overall a nice experience.

I recommend Georgia Brown's and their Sunday Jazz Brunch. The food ad the music is great, and they send you home with another meal on top of what devour at brunch. Great value!

I really like going to this place because of the jazz band. The last time I was here the lady singer was really good. This time I was there for like an hour and a half , the band played only 2 songs and not very good. I was disappointed because I always look forward to a good music, one reason I like having brunch at this place.The food was great and our server was very nice.

The food was good however; i was expecting more in the area of flavors and foodie excitement.

I ordered the 4-course NYE dinner. The appetizer (shrimp and grits) excellent! The main entree (surf & turf) bland, roasted potato pairing was not a good choice.

Service -
Hostess walked us through the restaurant to our table found it was not ready and then told us to go back to the bar in a way that made me feel i was being scolded. Maybe she forgot we were the customer and not members of the restaurant staff.
Table service was slow. At times we thought they forgot about us. My wife’s entree arrived 15-minutes after mine.

Went there for our 2nd New Years dinner... my $40 steak was cold, they served me the wrong and argued that they brought what I ordered until mailer d checked and it was their mistake, wife’s main course was uninspiring and salty, other couples main courses where also warmed to where gravy compiled,... on and on... will not be going back there

I have celiac disease, which usually makes dinning out a game of Russian Roulette. But I felt completely at ease at Georgia Browns. From the wait staff to the bartender, they understood what was safe for me to eat, and what wasn't. Additionally, both the food and the overall experience was amazing. I can't wait to go back for Wednesday Night Jazz.

Sunday Brunch quality has gone down. Value is poor compared to what it used to be. They have cheapened the take home meal by lessened variety and smaller portions. Bloody Mary was so spicy that We couldn’t drink it. We ordered three. Terrible The eat in buffet was pretty good.

Great fried chicken
Buffet is less than spectacular in execution.
Overdone meat
But fun environment & good place to hang out for “jazz” brunch on a Sunday

Glad we came. Love the jazz band. Waffles were excellent and the best we have ever had. We probably didn’t eat $45 worth but glad we came. They offer an entree to go included but we didn’t take advantage as we were staying in a hotel. Definitely a treat.

I was disappointed with the buffet selection and service. The meats were lukewarm, and there were no serving utensils in several dishes. I will not return for the brunch for the price point of $45 without any drinks.

I would recommend the food and selections Best fried green tomatoes we have ever tasted.
The service was very slow, unattentive to detail.
Our orders were delivered incorrectly.
We had to ask for water and tea refills.
We thought perhaps our server was new, however other patrons having same issues as we were.
A manager did not stop by our table to check on us even though patrons next to us had complained.

We had brunch on Saturday, December 28, 2019, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Our server was amazing! She did not rush us as two of us had ordered Bottomless Mimosas. Our server was attentive, fun, and professional. Our food was delicious, and we had fun trying each other's dishes. Always a good experience!

My excitement and remembrance of a wonderful dining experience at Georgia Brown was crushed when we dined there last week. It was a warm night (most unusual for a Friday night in December) so our group of 11 gathered outside before entering the restaurant. Old Ebbits was booked and renovating, we chose Georgia for our guests taste of DC.

Error #1 - the hostess led us to two tables of six. At our request, she had the tables pushed together. Error #2 - since we were seated on a curved wall, the tables would not meet. Error #3 - the heat was up so high we immediately started to perspire. It took at least 30 minutes to get the temperature down and by the end of our meal for our body temps to recover. Now for the food, the crab soup special was mostly thick roux and lacked flavor. The colossal shrimp were served without sauce (requested). The rest of the dishes were mediocre at best. No raves from this former diner. I do not recommend bringing guests to this establishment until you’ve tested it first.

Our waitress was accommodating and so was the manager. He did everything to appease our discomfort. The kitchen must improve.

Thrilled that it was open for Christmas dinner but the wait staff simply could not keep up. The people bringing food to table were different every time and never the waiter taking the orders. We ordered a bottle of wine but the specific bottle that we requested did not arrive. It is quite possible that the waiter could not hear all of the wine order for the noise from other tables, as it was lively, and simply brought the most basic sauvignon blanc. A sauvignon blanc arrived, but already open and not in a cooler.
Making a complaint at table to someone already overworked seemed appropriate in the moment, but the oversights stay in the mind. At this level, even on a holiday, these missteps are a disappointment. Balanced against these errors, the food was excellent.

Expected seasoned flavorful food... not so. Crab soup was watery without any hints of sherry and cream, even though there was plenty of crab meat. Also, the temperature of the food was luke warm. The desserts were tasty. The quality of food did not warrant the price, however the service was very good.

Service was good. Place was nice. A few good things were served like grits collards and fried chicken livers. But the entrees were woefully unimpressive. Turkey could have been frozen/processed and prime rib was something I know not what. Maybe because it was Christmas the restaurant just didn’t care. I’ve heard great things about the place but the food didn’t even rate as mediocre. Dinner for two over $200 and felt like burning money.
