I would definitely go back to the Brass Onion. The food was delicious! Although I did have to ask for more salad dressing. I honestly think they forgot to include it on my salad when it was originally brought to the table. I would definitely recommend the Brass Onion.

Had food and no utensils for a while, had to stop a bus boy for some. Crab cakes got cold while waiting for silverware. Steak was well done was suppose to be medium. Greens were really good and always love the corn bread. Won't get the skillet bread again most of it was hard.

It was a good experience. Busier possibly due to it being restaurant week. The only downside was the awful parking garage.

We go to the Brass onion about once a month. It is consisting good. Service is usually very good. Noise level is the only variable. Sometimes quiet sometimes noisy. I would recommend.

The food was fantastic. We couldn’t get a reservation before 8:30, but when we got there at 8, the restaurant was empty!! Only 3 other tables were sat. I waited 20 min to order a drink. Server was very polite, but all of the service was suuuuuper slow!! And no more than 4 additional parties came in while we were there. So strange. The restaurant was freezing - and I rarely get cold, so it was COLD. Chicken and filet were superb. So strange that the service was so slow. And disappointed that we couldn’t get in earlier whe. They were that dead!

The food was, as always, wonderful. Today brought us out for a fried chicken lunch that did not disappoint-chicken was so juicy and crisp all at the same time. Perfection in the good department.
But.
The service was extra slow today, at least for our table. In fact, there were 2 tables that were seated after us who were done and gone before we got a coffee refill. The place wasn't slammed, so I'm not really sure why our table in particular was so ignored.

Only one bartender which I’m sure is Covid related but not being able to get wine in time for dinner was a drag… felt bad for our server! She was obviously stressed …. Overall food was good will give it another chance down the road.

Celebrated my brother’s birthday there yesterday. Food was very good and service was very good. Place was clean and attractive. Only things I would remove points for were no bread served with salad, fruit tea not available and no French onion soup, which seemed like it ought to be available at a place called The Brass Onion. Overall very satisfactory though.

Ashley was our server and she was the sweetest experience we’ve had. Our first time there Spring ‘21, the server we had at that time was horrible with their service and attitude. Im glad we cane back and experienced someone greater. The food was amazingly FRESH. The collard greens need a lot more work. I appreciate the tenderness of them but there was no flavor whatsoever.

It was okay but not great, which we were expecting based on reviews. Wife had the fried chicken and I had the prime rib. She liked the chicken, but my prime rib was more well done than medium as ordered. It wasn't anything special compared to others I've had elsewhere. I also had the sauteed mushrooms which were almost tasteless. They were busy and the restaurant was noisy. Service was good.

I'd heard good things about the restaurant and decided to try it for Restaurant Week.
I ordered the shrimp and grits with a side order of greens. The shrimp were a nice size, but they were lukewarm when they arrived at the table. My friend ordered fried chicken, mased potatoes, and greens. The fried chicken was well seasoned. The greens were devoid of flavor even when we added salt and pepper at the table. The brass onion dip was some of the best dip I've ever had. The gumbo had great flavor with the right amount of kick. Ambiance was very nice.

My husband and I dined here for a date night. We ordered the onion rings and half order of the chicken wings for a starter. I had a French 75 with our apps. My husband ordered the KC strip, and I ordered the pork chops with a side of their collard greens, the Empress drink. Food, service and drinks were all FANTASTIC! 10/10! Will be back!!
