    The food was delicious, but the service was incredibly slow. We also had drinks, and the bloody mary was extremely water down and lacked any flavor.

    This place is always amazing. They were having a slow service day due to being short staffed but our server went out of his way to make sure we had a good experience. I’ve literally never had food from here that wasn’t AMAZING and the drinks are always high quality too. I can’t recommend it enough if you love southern food.

    Mother’s Day menu; skimpy portions; food not bad. Why change the menu just for a holiday. Probably not going back.

    Brown Butter Southern Kitchen & BarResponded on May 10, 2022

    Thanks for taking the time to leave us some feedback May I ask what you ordered? The holiday portions are our standard portions, and we feel that we serve generous portions. Regarding the truncated menu for Mother’s Day, since the holiday was coinciding with Jazzfest, we decided to focus on less options, while keeping our normal price point, so that we could operate as efficiently as possible.I really am sorry to hear you won’t be coming back, but as a wise man once said “them’s the breaks”.

    Brown Butter would do well to add Chicken and Waffles to their daily menu and not limit the dish to Sunday Brunch. It’s a prominent attractive feature on the website that creates expectations resulting in customer disappointment when it’s not available.

    We went for Easter Brunch. Brown Butter makes WORLD CLASS cocktails. I've never been disappointed. Food overall was excellent, the starters and dessert were fantastic-but the sauce on the short rib benedict was far too sweet. Otherwise, it was a great meal

    We love this place and are sooo gratified that so far it has survived the pandemic and its economic impact on the hospitality industry in general and restaurants and bars in particular. This also was our second Easter Sunday Brunch with Brown Butter. The food is incredible and the vibe is warm. Our server was attentive though he missed a few things, all totally forgivable. Thanks for making this a special day.

    Burgers and appetizers were delicious, but two of my guests ordered the chicken and waffles and the chicken was so tuff they couldn’t eat it which was really disappointing. Waiter seemed very uninterested and not helpful with answering questions or volunteering feedback in what to order.

    Brown Butter Southern Kitchen & BarResponded on April 22, 2022

    Hey there! I am so sorry to hear that your guests chicken was so tough that they couldn't enjoy it! Did you let your server know? We would have loved an opportunity to make things right for them. As far as your server being uninterested, I apologize for that as well. I'd love to get some more information about your visit. My contact info follows below, please don't hesitate to contact me via text/phone/email any time. Simon Beck Brown Butter (504)390-1577
