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.

My only problem with my experience is my 15-20 min wait for a table even though I had a reservation. The place was decorated nicely. The table spacing made it seem spacious although it wasn’t a very big space. We had the southern tasting menu and it was delicious. Wasn’t a fan of the dessert. I think the tasting menu was a great value for everything we received. The waiter was super attentive. I would return.

Good dining experience. Good culinary concept. Great service with an upscale casual feel. Good food. Certainly should give this place a go if you are in the area and definitely worth a drive.

It just wasn't for me. I had the catfish which was fried but wasn't properly drained of the grease. It was also served with tartar sauce which was put directly on the fish. I'm personally not a fan of tartar sauce. The fish should have been served on the side. My fries were dry and chewy, and some were soggy and undercooked. The fries were served with spicy ketchup that tasted like a mixture of ketchup and hot sauce. I didn't like it and thought that I should have asked if I wanted regular ketchup. I'm far from picky when it comes to my food but I wouldn't go back there. Just didn't like that much and expected something different.

Amazing place for Sunday brunch. Lovely atmosphere and really loved the retro glasses and plates. The sticky buns, served in a skillet, were so yummy. The the assortment of drinks (and non-alcolholic). I didn't try it, but who remembers cream soda?

I would definitely go back!

Served appetizer and entree at the same time. Felt rushed to eat and leave.

Food was mediocre- not well seasoned and served room temperature (lobster Benedict)

Would only return to try drinks at the bar.

Due to the restaurant deciding to close early on the day of my reservation, I was disappointed and disgusted. I received a call the morning of my reservation and was asked if I could come earlier because they wanted to close early at 3pm that day. The restaurant is scheduled to be open until 10 PM on Sundays. Once me and my party arrived we were rushed to order and rushed to eat.

This was my first visit to Succotash and it definitely won’t be my last. The food was delicious and I really like the atmosphere. I had fried okra, which I’d never eaten but it was sooo good. The chicken and waffles were finger lickin good. My best friend ordered a side of cheese grits which I tasted and they were yummy as well. I ordered a piece of hummingbird cake to go which I haven’t dug into yet but I’m sure it’s amazing.

This was our first visit and we loved the food! We went for brunch and had a bowl of chili - it was fantastic with no beans, just the way I like it. Then we had the french toast and chicken and waffles and they were both phenomenal. Definitely my favorite french toast. The waitress was great and everything is reasonably priced.

We got to the restaurant early. Sat at the bar, bought a bottle of wine. Received a text to let us know our table is ready. The bartender has us take our bottle of wine to our table. I’ve never been to a restaurant where staff has us bring our bottle to the table. The manager noticed and apologized. However the bartenders needs to be trained on hospitality.

The food and service were great! The shrimp n grits was seasoned very well, and my husband enjoyed his salmon. However, if you're looking for a quiet dinner, this may not be the place. The crowd was energetic, which wasn't too bad for us, since we weren't really looking for a quiet night out.

My friends and I try a new brunch spot monthly. This was our first time at this restaurant and the service was great. Due to our party being 9 people, we were locked into a certain menu for brunch that wasn’t how we wanted our first time eating here to be. We ordered a few other things and had a good time but would of liked to pick our own food. I would only recommend this establishment to people with groups of 6 ppl or less.

The restaurant was lively, the service was wonderful and welcoming.

I would not recommend the food. It was fair. I am from the south; I had a flour based hush puppy that had no taste. The grits were okay. The bacon was hard and overcooked. The one great item I had was the warm potato salad. My husband had a wonderful pulled pork sandwich which he enjoyed.

I had high hopes for the food an I was disappointed.

Comfort food is what they offer-- a nice blend of traditional Southern and Creole with some new twists. The menu offers quite a variety, so you'll be able to find something you like, and it's worth going back. The ambiance is really relaxed, and the service is excellent. I think the best part is the cocktails--especially for the bourbon lovers.

We met some family members here for dinner. We started off with a few apps that were very tasty and then continued to stuff our faces with delicious southern-style cuisine. I have the Catfish and my brother had the Short-rib, both of which were amazing. I'm still thinking about the Whiskey Sours that were by far the best I've ever had!
