A progressive perspective of classic Southern favorites. James Beard Award nominee Edward Lee brings his Korean roots and Southern repertoire to a soulful Southern menu.

SUCCOTASH is named after the classic dish that has been a longstanding staple of the Southern table. While many know “Succotash” when they see it, the dish has been interpreted, modified and passed from generation to generation for centuries. While Succotash between families will share similarities, each family’s recipe is deeply personal and reminiscent of those special suppers that brings kin together. Our “Succotash” is special to us and we invite you to experience the South from our point of view.

The Brunch menu is pricey. Mimosas are usually $2 - $3 on Sundays. The mimosas at this restaurant were $9.00.

We decided to try Succotash at the Harbor after an excellent experience at its DC location. To begin, we ordered biscuits and coffee. We got the coffee with no sugar and the biscuits with no butter. They were tasty but didn’t taste freshly baked. Our main brunch dishes were better. The shrimp and grits that my friend ordered were great. The shrimp were seasoned well, the grits were creamy and hot, and the vegetables and eggs were a great complement. My french toast arrived cold so we ordered a replacement. ... For the most part, the experience was good but not great. The DC brunch standard is pretty high, and perhaps our server was just s bit tired. I’d try it again, though, to see if the issues we experienced were simply the result of an off morning by an admittedly tired waiter.

Absolutely, a National harbor gem. The food is amazingly good, unsurprisingly fresh, and adequately sized. Our waitress (tinia) was amazing and knew all the ingredients and pairings. She was not wrong with any of her reviews and recommendations.

The Family Style dinner was so worth it!!!! We could barely get through half the courses when we said stop. We ruined the experience by enjoying the Happy Hour drink special and ordering the smoked wings. We knew they were part of the dinner but they really are that good that you want to make sure we got our fill

The waitress knew her menu with good recommendations and the food was plentiful. We had the right amount of attention without it being overbearing. My friend indicated her meal was alright not something to write home about and my fish was a bit on the salty side.

We had dinner at Succatash earlier in the week and the food was great and the service was awesome . So when we invited guests to dine with us , as we raved about the good food . We were disappointed with the outcome. Also, we were never offered a dessert choice or coffee. The food was dry and we felt the cook must have been At lunch.

We were headed to a show at the nearby MGM, after reviewing all of the dining options at National Harbor I chose Succotash. We were greeted warmly and seated at a cozy booth near the bar with views of the nearby Gaylord and other shops and a peek of the waterfront. The decor is New Orleans inspired, flickering gas lanterns and brick and filigree wrought iron, really handsome and inviting. I started with the milk punch, which is bourbon based-I don’t really like bourbon but the reviews were right, drink was perfect. The single huge ice cube was a nice touch. I had the fried chicken and waffles, everything about it was delicious; my husband raved about his ribeye. We got a slice of the hummingbird cake to go-also fantastic, so many flavors, buttercream frosting to die for, oh and it is at least 3 servings worth. I will definitely return!

The service was friendly and quick. The deviled eggs were delicious as was my date's southern benedict. I ordered the fried chicken and waffles and it was disappointing. The waffle was cold and soggy but the chicken was pretty good. I would probably give it another try.

Great place with amazing food. We had two servers. The first one was great. Our first ssrver went on break so we got another server that was not great at all. He never checked on us even though he passed by our table several times. That is our only complaint. Parking is expensive too. They should
validate. With that said, I will go back to try out a new dish because the food and most of the service is great.

Pleasent atmosphere with better than average service. Food Menu seemed very limited with a small variety of different food types or meal combinations. The alcoholic drinks menu on the reverse side had enormous variety by comparison (if all you came for was to drink). Food prep, taste and temperature of order was pretty much average while cost of meals seemed to be on the high end for what you get.

What a creative menu! If you like southern food with a twist, you’ll love Succotash. Collard greens with ham and kimchi? The Kimchi gave just enough spice to the dish without overpowering. Everything we ordered had great flavor.

I came here for my boyfriend's birthday. The souther-gourmet menu sounded amazing and we weren't disappointed. We got the fried oysters and burrata to start and the Ribeye and dirty chicken as entrees. They even brought out a dessert for his birthday - we were stuffed and happy!

Excellent meal and great service. Two of us shared the Taste of the South option which is served family style and offers the opportunity to try many of Succotash’s most popular dishes. From the deviled eggs and skillet cornbread to the fried green tomato salad, fried catfish, chicken and waffles, bacon mac and cheese and dessert, each plate was familiar comfort food yet with an unexpected and succulent twist. This could easily feed three, if not four people.

We had been to Charleston and got our full experience of Southern food, and we are surprised to find some delicious southern food right in Washington DC area.

For our Sunday brunch, we got the chicken waffle which is so so much better than what we had down at Charleston. When we were in Charleston, we were disappointed at the chicken waffle!! But the eggs in the egg Benedict were somewhat cold, so I was disappointed though the favor was definitely there. When the waiter came by asking how everything was, I mentioned to him, and he immediately offered to give me a new dish. Since I was already started on my dish, I declined.

To my surprise, the manager came over couple minutes later to apologize for the eggs, and also not being able to give us a table given I had a reservation (well, that actually was our fault since we arrived 40 minutes early). Nevertheless, the restaurant put the Egg Benedict and the coffee on the house and gave us cookies to take home for not being able to deliver the best dining experience. Very good customer service, and we will definitely come back to try their dinner next time when we stay at National Harbor.

First off, food was very good. Had a 5:00 reservation on a Saturday and the restaurant was not too busy. We ordered cocktails, appetizers, entrees and dessert; we had two kids with us who ordered entrees as well. The server was dead set on getting us in and out ASAP. Did not come to the table to ask how the food was, did not offer to refresh beverages...it was obvious she wanted us out quickly. This is one of the very, very few times I have tipped less than 15%, ever, because the server was abrupt to the point of rudeness. It was a nice dinner, but service was memorably lacking.

Staying in National Harbor, stopped by for brunch. Service was great. Loved the food, though my wife wasn’t blown away with her eggs Benedict. Caveat: she is pregnant and her tastes can fluctuate so I wouldn’t rule out the dish necessarily. I got the chicken and waffles and the chicken was delicious, waffle was a little dry, but I could have asked for a bit more syrup I guess. Our 8 year old, who can be picky, devoured French toast, so that’s a big vote of confidence. Our server was attentive but never overbearing. Didn’t have to wait for the check (increasingly a pet peeve of mine), so that was good too.

We visit Succotash often enough and usually enjoy the drinks, food and service. This visit was to celebrate our wedding anniversary with another couple; our waiter did manage to ask about and mention our anniversary, but I, naively, expected a bit more. On this particular night, the bourbon drinks were good, the Belle's Punch a bit watered down. The trout and shrimp & grits were decent, but not as flavorful as expected. We'll continue to visit Succotash for a quick night out, but will rely on other establishments for special occasions.

The shrimp&grits were a disappointment . But I had a very nice and unique citrus salad. My nephew enjoyed the chicken. The waiter got the order wrong which he respectfully acknowledged. The food came all at once instead of in sequence as ordered. Overall, a nice place. Bell’s punch was a delight.

Southern comfort meets fine dining! Didn’t think it could be done but Succotash does it! Somehow they combine homey, modern, and delicious into one neat package. Met up with a friend and had a great time. Would also make for a great date night place and then walk along the water front. Would definitely reccomend!

Side note: try the fried green tomato salad!!!
