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.

First time at a traditional southern style restaurant. The cornbread side dish was best ever. I had salmon good but I should have chosen something more special. One person had shrimp and grits (see photo). There were fabulous cocktails a lot of bourbon choices in a variety of prices up to $110. Waiter was ok but kind of had an attitude. I'd go again for the amazing food.

Bar service fir the brief period I was there seemed fine. Being seated took a bit longer than expected for dinner time with a reservation, because the host was nowhere to be found and then seemed peeved to see someone waiting fie him at the front of the house. Table service was inattentive and forgetful about the one addition we requested, though she was polite and apologetic when she decided to stop by to check on us. Food was a bit spicier than expected but generally pretty good.

Best chicken and waffles I’ve ever had, and the suggested Mac and cheese side was likewise fantastic, fried green tomatoes were a super yummy take on the dish. I live in SC and have lived in GA so I’ve had all these dishes before.

We were visiting from NY and was VERY disappointed in the food. The fries we hard as a ROCK! They had to be sent back and the replacement fries were not much different. The collard greens were not as good as reported. However, the waitress was EXCELLENT!

Great food! We were celebrating our anniversary, and had the Taste of the South menu which was delicious! We also had the Belle's punch which was perfect sweetness, and not too heavy or syrupy. Loved everything!

Server = Diamond - was fantastic, perfect balance of attentiveness, knowledge, skill. Zach = chef - is a real gem. He had a great dinner recommendation; I ordered it; it was fantastic. Have eaten in every restaurant in National Harbor & Succotash is number 1 in my book!

Great service here! Eubin was excellent! Everyone was very nice. The food was great. We decided to get the Taste of the South menu option, which was a great decision. We were able to sample so many menu options that was and the food kept coming out at the perfect moments. The food is seasoned very well. Highly recommend.

Not bad, but not exceptional either. Service was fine and friendly. Place was nicely decorated. The food simply lacked that flavor I expected from an upscale restaurant. It was more in line with a good chain restaurant.

The food was amazing! I took my husband to Succotash and we ordered the "Taste of the South" me and him left happy and stuffed! We did not have to put one drop of extra seasoning to any of the food. My waitress was really nice and friendly. She got us what we needed, when we needed it and was not a bother. We will be coming back soon!

Multiple dishes were just bad. Poached eggs were bad, lobster was dry, fries tasted reheated. Ambience was dark. Service was solid and the chicken and waffles were OK.

One of the best dining experiences I have had for a while! A random selection of restaurant and wasn’t sure what to expect at National Harbor, but WOW! Amazing food, service, cocktails and ambience. We will definitely be going back.

Everything was excellent from food to service. We ate here for dinner before the Jill Scott concert and it exceeded are expectations. We had the Taste of the South dinner and it was amazing and plentiful. The Belle’s Punch was good. I would highly recommend this place.

We had to order family style. Yes it included EVERYTHING on the itemized menu but it was nasty and WAYYYYYYYYY over priced. Also, keep in mind that you only get 1 of everything to taste so if you do like something (which you probably won't) you will not be able to get more of it unless someone in your party is willing to give you there's. The sides are supposed to be shareable but is only enough for you to get 1 teaspoon. The green's were actually delicious and the ONLY thing I liked. Everyone in my party was upset. The waiter was nice and friendly but the food still made the night a bust as we tried to come out to celebrate. Also, the drinks are WAYYYYYYYYYY over priced (even more than what they cost at MGM) and they're nasty as well.

I always eat here, though it has been a while since my last visit. It's close to everything in D.C. the staff is always awesome and food is always perfect. I never have an issues with anything I select on their menu, and that includes drinks. Calling ahead if you are going to be late or have changes to your party.

Service was above and beyond they really made us feel welcomed. Food was good as well. They have some dishes that are not your normal run of the mill sides which is a good thing to challenge our pallets. 9.5 of 10

Great food! No sweet tea which was odd for a southern style restaurant and disappointing. Dessert offerings were not tempting. Everything else was on point.

We thought there would be no reason not to select a southern cooking restaurant at the National Harbor, and the menu on the website had plenty of possibilities from which to choose. We were very disappointed. The best thing was the drinks.......but you can't go wrong with Woodford Reserve anywhere.

My wife ordered the fried oyster appetizer and I ordered the smoked chicken wings. Neither had any taste - I shockingly asked the server for salt and pepper to give them some flavor! My wife had the catfish entree with grits and I had the beef rib with cauliflower side. My wife found herself asking for tartar sauce to give the poor fish flavor (at least it was crispy), but it was also tasteless, as were the grits. There was sauce for the ribs, the meat was tender, but again, no flavor even when smothered with the sauce. The cauliflower side had a lightly seasoned fish sauce on it and a sprig of dill. It was a good side but alas the main elements of the meal were far from satisfying.

We did not send the food back to the kitchen, and when the $165 check arrived, we added the 18% tip because the server was very good, but I was really upset by spending that much for a meal that I did not enjoy at all.

Perhaps if you choose this restaurant, you could order something else, or the same things and not have the same experience, but I for one will not be returning to Succotash.
