Hosts accommodating, food good and reputation always a draw for guests, I think it is torn between being too southern or not. Cornbread too sweet and greens too fancy but on the other hand, those are not standard items elsewhere so good to be home, as I have been coming here since before it was Georgia Brown's, where else can you see Obama and President of the Congo? Right here. All items first rate.

Sunday Jazz Brunch Buffet was highly overated. Minimal selection, underseasoned dishes, and food was left out too long and not replenished frequently enough. The to go entree was a nice addition. The fried chicken was seasoned well and tasted good, but my mom's was fried too long and some spots looked scorched. The overall experience was very disappointing.

This was my second or third visit to Georgia Brown's. I'm a Washingtonian, but now live in New England, so it's been quite a few years since I've been to the restaurant. We went for brunch, which is expensive, but there are a lot of great options. More food than you can eat and hard to make some choices, so I would recommend going for brunch when you have time to sit and enjoy your meal, without being rushed. The live jazz was an unexpected surprise and was very good. Love the fried chicken and the shrimp and grits. Both are delicious!

The place was empty and they sat us at a small table that had a pole blocking one side and beside the beverage station. Really didn't make sense why they sat us there.... until later. When the place started getting some other customers near the time we were finishing, it was obvious why we were left without being checked on and no refills on our drinks. The food was okay, nothing to rave over anyway. Very average. The beauty of the decor was very nice though.

We were delighted to find that Georgia Brown's was as good as we remembered from many years ago. Wonderfully well informed waiter, who was also interesting and entertaining. Hostess went out of her way to accommodate our request for seating that would best accommodate visiting with friends. Recommend trying the fried green tomatoes .

I have not eaten at Georgia Brown's for years and now I know why. Expensive and totally average food. And hey, if you are going to charge me $23 for a bowl of gumbo, at least have clean restrooms. Corn bread was dry and the chives on my entree looked like they were chopped a few days ago. There are way too many excellent restaurants in DC to spend too much time here. It's too bad because the location is terrific....

This was the only place I could get a reservation for 1, the Monday before Thanksgiving. When I arrived I was seated quickly but waited 15 minutes before anyone came over to take my order.

I am not sure who my server was as a few different people delivered my drink and food. The fried chicken was good but the sides were not very hot. Did not send it back as I never saw a.server after getting my meal. I was a solo female diner and felt ignored. The manager said he would have fixed it but since I had no idea who the server was.

The place was almost empty too so there is no excuse. And if the manager was doing his job, he would have been touring the dining room. Never again. Now I know why the place was almost empty.

I took my son knowing he would love the food and I too was excited to go as I hadn’t been in over 20 years. Made a reservation and was seated immediately. Food was excellent as I had remembered.
I was however disappointed with our server as once her friend was seated a few tables down from us, she hardly paid any attention to us. The food is spicy and on more than one occasion we asked for more water and she forgot. I ordered wine when we sat down and it didn’t come for awhile. It seemed like she was rushing us along so she could go sit with her friend.

Georgia Browns is an amazing experience of epic proportions. It began with being greeted warmly at the door by the host, enjoying an amazing server who kept us entertained and well taken care of for the entire night. The meals were absolutely outstanding. Don’t forget to enjoy the biscuits and cornbread with the peach butter. And definitely enjoy a signature cocktail. Always memorable, worth every dime, DC mainstay, DC gem!

I've been to Georgia Brown's many times over the years, even for Thanksgiving dinner. This time had the crispy chicken livers, which were great and the tomato dish, also very good. Hadn't had the fried chicken in a while so ordered that and thought the chicken was very dry. Wish they would offer dark meat options. Nice place and the service was superb.

A really great place for good southern food. It is conveniently located near the McPhearson Square Metro station on the Orange, Silver and Blue line.

Food was excellent. I sampled the shrimp and grits, catfish fingers and gumbo. All was out of this world.

It is a noisy restaurant though and the quarters were a bit cramped around our table. The server was very accommodating but was severely tasked with keeping up with all his tables. All in all it was a very good dining experience but not perfect.

This was my second time here. The first time was great but this time was not. Service was great but the food. Our bread came out cold and then I ordered the Devil Shrimp with Mac and cheese on top of spinach. The shrimp stuffed crab was dried out. It came out luke warm. The waitress took the food back and I believe they just put it in a microwave. It came back hot but drier than it was the first time. My fiance would not let me send it back so he ate it. I have to say I was completely disappointed and I will probably not go back.

Our 1st impression from the hostess was not the best. She did not smile. Then she tried to seat us in this oddly diagonally positioned table. We were a party of 4 and one of the people would have to swish against the wall and a 2nd person had very little space to pull her chair out since the tables were so close. We were unable to pull the table away from the next table due to the wall. I went to the hostess to explain the table was very tight for my party of 4. She appeared annoyed, then pointed in front of her and said that the ONLY available table was the one directly in front of the hostess stand. Mind you this was a Sunday 6:45 reservation and the restaurant, while busy, seemed to have a number of open tables. We took the other table which was much better, but we had to move ourselves. She did NOT help in any way. I have previously eaten here but the rest of my party had not. Needless to say, this was NOT a good first impression. Our server was very attentive, but he did not offer much guidance on the menu or enthusiasm on the dishes. Maybe he was distracted or overwhelmed, but further information on the menu could have lead to a higher bill as we would have ordered more. Instead we skipped appetizers and dessert. My only service complaint would be that there seemed to be several bussers and I had to flag someone down a couple times for a water refill and my one companion never received a refill on her ice tea. We still enjoyed our food, but if we had received better service, we might have been even more wowed.

I hadn’t eaten there in years. We had a lovely time. We took our daughter who is attending GWU to dinner while in town. If I had any criticism it would be that it may be time to do an overall sprucing up of the place. Some areas looking a little long in the tooth.
