I always enjoy myself at Succotash. The staff and food have always been great. I took my parents, who are in town visiting, for lunch yesterday. We Were seated immediately. The restaurant wasn't crowded yet we waited for our waitress for 15 minutes. I had to go to the hostess to ask for service. The hostess apologized and our waitress came. The waitress was sweet but I had to make eye contact often to have her come to the table. I still love this restaurant and the food, incredible.

Food was mediocre at best. The flavor combinations just didn’t work. The sauce on the pork ribs lacked a debut of flavor. The biscuits on the ham platter were very dry. The fried green tomato setting was ok. The staff was nice. Ambiance and location were very nice. The food was a huge disappointment thought.

Great experience. The service was excellent. The entrees were superb. Only minor issue is that the cornbread was extremely, overly salty.

Nice place to dine. Food was delish. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, the restaurant did not process my credit card tip for the server. I called the restaurant the very next day and they did not offer a remedy (bunch of excuses from "Scott"). The server was excellent and deserves her compensation. Not sure why this happened since we were the only diners in the facility (snow day) and the credit card receipt was signed.

We had good service, even though our server was let go and someone else took over. Friends had a coupon for a free dessert and they brought all of us a cookie with the ice cream in the middle to share! Nice touch. The only thing I would say is it's seafood-centric on the menu, so if you don't want a pimento cheeseburger or ribs, you'll basically have to go with a fish dish. My shrimp and grits was pretty great, a tad gritty (yes, they are grits but I know my grits!) but a tasty dish. Good service overall, and we even split the check without any hassles. Would return, for sure.

The shrimp and grits recipe is garbage; it contains a runny egg, zucchini, mushrooms, and some indescribable gravy. Such a shame, because the cheesy grits are phenomenal. The short rib was seasoned well, but they weren't tender at all. Clearly, no actual southern people (or anyone adjacent to the culture) are involved in preparing the food or building the menu. The staff was professional and nothing more.

I really enjoyed this restaurant. It is definitely a great brunch spot and I’m optimistic about dinner. Brunch wasn’t without flaws but the overall flavors, concept of dishes and service are memorable. I’m not usually a punch person for brunch but the spiked punch was great (not overly sweet). Pecan sticky buns were a great option but they needed to be more airy; they were a bit thick.The french toast with lemon curd was tastey, I just needed more lemon curd – which was quickly delivered. My friend ordered shrimp and grits; her bowl was so clean I thought she may have licked it. There were so many creative options I knew I would be back for another round. Service was great, totally recommend.

We started at the bar for Happy Hour and ordered the smoked wings ($1) a pitcher of Belle's punch. Our bartender Chi Chi was friendly, attentive and provided excellent suggestions and service. We then moved to the dining room to our table and we ordered shrimp & grits, catfish, green tomatoes, collard greens and another pitcher of Belle's punch. We all enjoyed our food and our waitress Alexis "with the blue hair" was great also. She knew the dishes and explained the menu extremely well. We really enjoyed our night out and will be back again for brunch on a Saturday! Good Food & Good Service is hard to find but we found it at Succotash!

Food was fantastic. Was amazed at the flavor of the chicken and waffles. It only needed the light drizzle of syrup that came with it. The affogato for desert was also delicious. After going to the harbor for years, this place really stands out.

The food was good overall, but everything was very sweet. For example, my husband ordered the salmon, which was listed as having a persimmon glaze on it. When I think of a glaze, I think of a thin sauce, and not a ton of it. The sauce was the consistency of apple sauce and covered the entire piece of fish heavily, and while I liked it, he found it really off-putting.

This is the second time I went to Succotash, as I enjoyed my first experience so I decided to take my staff there for our belated holiday lunch.

We placed our orders and our appetizers came. Literally three minutes later our entrees came. It was tremendously unfortunate--we never got time to even enjoy our appetizers!!

Our server was fairly absent through the entire meal. She never came back to check how anything was, and when we'd ask her for something--another drink, the dessert menu, the check--she'd disappear for quite some time. The restaurant was fairly empty so she wasn't overburdened with tables; it appeared she was socializing with the other staff instead.

She seemed put out by the fact that we didn't want to box up our appetizers and take them with us, but after the appetizers had sat on the table for 30 minutes, why would we want them?

Not sure I'll come back a third time, to be honest.

It was our first time eating at Succotash, and we invited some friends. There were no issues with our reservation, and they were ready to seat us as soon as we arrived. The food was unique and fabulous, the service was great, and the ambiance was extremely pleasant. It is a nice restaurant with a cozy feeling. I would recommend this restaurant to friends and family members.

A little noisy but we were there on New Years Eve. The family style taste of the south was an amazing way to try several menu items at a great price. The cocktails were excellent.

Aside from the hard butter pecans cookies, the meals were excellent! I was hoping for warm and chewy to be a perfect ending to a wonderful meal. However, the butter pecan cookies were the opposite.

Great brunch if you are looking for something different. My husband had the hangover special with eggs, pulled pork, warm potato salad, biscuit and red eye gravy. Great flavor combination. My French toast had a crunchy coating and the maple smoke bacon was fantastic. Huge burbon selection if you are a fan and good mimosas. Service was excellent. Highly recommend for a great way to start your day.

My family of four, two teens (17&19), enjoyed the ambiance but not the food. The portions were small for the money and the taste was not to our liking. Service was good even thought the place was crowded.

My Husband and I loved the Taste of the South option on the menu so much when we dined at Succotash before. We brought my in laws this time to treat them and they loved everything about their dining experience. My only disappointment was that the Pimento Cheese Fundido dip is longer on the menu and that is the one thing I was really looking forward to having again. I truly hope that Management decides to bring it back!

Eber was our server and he couldn't have made our first experience at Succotash any more pleasant! He was able to accurately describe all of their staple dishes, helping steer each of us to the right choice. The menu here is quite varied and everything is made from scratch with care. We would definitely dine here again!

The only thing that I was not happy about was that we ordered the cornbread, our server said they were out and that was it. Ten minutes later, we see cornbread coming out of the kitchen. If our server had asked, maybe we would have waited for the new batch to be done. Knowing that cornbread was a staple to your menu we really wanted to try it. That was disappointing to see more come out.
