My husband and I went for our wedding anniversary. The ambiance was pleasant and we enjoyed ourselves overall, but the food and service left something to be desired. Our waiter seemed awkward and not very practiced in serving etiquette. We ordered the debris fries for our appetizer and that was the best part of our meal. The fries were crispy and the toppings were delicious. Our entrees (the filet medallions and the smoked porkchop) were “okay” at best. Overall not impressed with the meal, but would return for appetizers and drinks.

Dinner food selection was limited to three entrees. The beef filet was tender but overcooked. It appeared it was microwaved and was not fresh off the grill. The drink selection was good and the atmosphere was pleasant. It’s a place I would return for drinks and small plates. I had higher expectations for dinner and would not recommend this restaurant for dinner.

BrianS, Thank you for your frank review on your experience. I do apologize that your meal was not to your full expectations. I'm sorry our entrees were lacking. We are currently looking at adding more. I can also assure you that while we do have a microwave, it is not used in cooking our steaks. I do hope you give us another chance, as we are always looking for new suggestions about our menu. Thank you again for your review. Daniel Mann Director of Food and Beverage Brass Hat 6012556933

We were disappointed in the Brass Hat. We had heard great reviews and did not feel that way after our experience. The ambiance is nice. The service was outstanding. I wish I could say the same about our meal. First of all,my wife's bloody Mary was so spicy she could hardly drink it. I had the steak and eggs and my wife had the Meaty Benny. My steak was overdone and tough. My scrambled eggs were tasteless as they had not been seasoned at all. My wife's medallions were tough and the Bearnaise sauce was covering her whole meal. Needless to say, we will not return to The Brass Hat.

Casual, laid back atmosphere where the servers don't rush you to order or get you out of the door. We'll be back!

Lovely setting. The food we ordered was delicious!
It was nice to be able to hear each other speak. However, the prices were somewhat too much for the same type of food at nearby restaurants. We have eaten at every place in the burg. This restaurant obviously caters more to the 'drinking' crowd, or at least that was the impression I received. Lengthy cocktail and appetizer selection and a small number of choices for the entree'.

However we enjoyed it.

The service was wonderful. I enjoyed the Caesar salad and fries. I didn't like the duck wings and spring rolls.

It was pretty noisy. I believe that was due to a special event going on. The food we had, a shrimp salad and pork chop were delicious, but our cheese plate appetizer was completely forgotten by our server. Overall I will definitely be back. The drink menu had lots of options as well.

We always enjoy ourselves at the Brass Hat 🎩 We live only a few blocks away so we were very excited when they opened. The drink specials are fun and the truffle fries delicious!

Brass Hat was a very good time on a Saturday night. My wife and I went to the Brass Hat at halftime of the USM game and had a great time eating shareables and drinking some of the cocktails. The entree's (porkchop and soft shell crab) weren't our favorites but we will be back to eat the shareables again.

What a wonderful addition to Hattiesburg! I was greeted upon arrival by the friendly hotel and restaurant staff. The atmosphere brings you back in time to the trains of the past. Small references about the history of the area fill the space. Plenty of seating and a bar that pulls you in. The Brass Hat has a wonderful drink and food menu enticing you to try everything! Drinks were perfect as well as the food.
This is the place to be in Hattiesburg!
