Not a bad experience but wouldn't go back
-Waited 10 mins in doorway for table despite having a reservation and the restaurant being about half full
-Service wasn't particularly slow but servers kept coming by to tell us our food would be "right out" which was a bit unnecessary and untrue
-Trout dish was overcooked
-Sides were large and DELICIOUS (mac and cheese, collard greens, brussels sprout special)
-Appetizers were very fast and also great (chicken wings and friend green tomatoes)
Overall the food here is good, just a little bit too "extra" for my taste. Everything tastes fine, but it just seems like they go just the extra step to make Southern cuisine too fancy and it's just doing too much. Taking classic dishes and adding in extra ingredients that are both unnecessary and make no sense. It's worth trying for the first time diner, but I'm not dying to go back .
We went for dinner on a Friday night, food is mediocre. Need to repeatedly ask the waiter to refill the water while he has an attitude, the last time he even said, “Are you serious?”
Yes I’m serious and definitely not coming back
We had an enjoyable time, the food was delicious and our waiter was outstanding. One drawback we had a reservation and we still had to wait 30 minutes before we were seated we were trying to figure out what was the purpose of the reservation. They have to do better with scheduling.
Great food but the staff made the meal. David was great. Good fun time. Awesome drinks.
We ordered the meal where you receive a sampling of several items, including wings, fried green tomatoes, catfish, chicken and waffles, and cookies and cream. Each dish was delicious. Service was excellent.
I ordered the trout. Dry and tasteless. Big disappointment. Service was great, but for the price, I would not recommend.
The food was very delicious and the staff was courtesy and very knowledgeable about the food and drink menu. This is my second visit and I enjoyed it as much as the first, this time around I invited more of my friends that enjoyed it also. I plan to continue to pass the word around about this restaurant.
We went there for Mother’s Day diner. Our son had Chicken and Waffles and for the second consecutive time the chicken was cooked hard. I had the Catfish plate with a side of collards greens. Again, the catfish seemed fried hard, but ok. Fried as if the grease was a bit too high. My wife had soup of the day an the Fried Green Tomato salad which were great! My collard greens were also great along with the hummingbird cake for desert. The Whiskey Sour cocktail and the other cocktails I’ve had over the previous two visits were well made.
I just dont like the fact you make a reservation and then people walk in and are seated before you, its almost like they forgot about our party.
We went for a Mother’s Day brunch, I’m extremely glad we made reservations early because there was a pretty long wait. The ambiance was nice with a down home feel, not too loud but still comfortable enough to laugh and make jokes at your table. The food was good some of the diners were taken aback at the combinations offered but pleasantly surprised at the flavors. The brunch menu was a little limited, however that was to be expected. All in all I would recommend the food, the ambiance, and the location come together to create a great experience.
Our waiter was amazing he made sure we had everything that we needed and more.
My daughters birthday server was not available as often as she should’ve, food was adifferent style of southern cuisine, they should stick to real southern food! Horrible overpriced a good tourist trap!
We went for Mother’s Day brunch on The Saturday before. The restaurant is beautiful and has a great ambiance. We ate outside on the patio and it was a perfect day. The food was delicious. I had the chicken and waffles and it was the best I’ve eaten! My husband had French toast which was also good. We had deviled eggs for an appetizer. Prices are comparable for the area.
Don't forget to the Bellini they're fantatistic.
Also the gravy and biscuits, so good!!!
Food was good. Staff was friendly. Excellent bourbon list. Prices weren’t bad. The hostess was flexible on my reservation. All in all a good experience. No complaints I can think of. I will go back.
Great experience although service could have been a little better. Asked for drink refills (just soda) and it took forever.
I had the chicken and waffles which was good. The pulled pork, collard greens and French toast were good as well.
I really enjoyed my visit to Succotash. Although they were busy, they did their best to accommodate my friends and I who were running late due to rush hour traffic. The food was absolutely amazing. I had the Dirty Fried Chicken with a side of mac and cheese (has bacon on it). The mac and cheese is to die for - very cheesy and the bacon is a great touch. The chicken was interesting but had everything I like all wrapped into one. It's two legs and two thighs, fried, covered in a spicy sauce and blue cheese sauce/bits. It also has jalapenos. A-mazing. The drinks were also great and pretty strong. I had a margarita.
Our waitress was also super helpful and very friendly.
The restaurant is also located close to the water, so my friends and I were able to take a walk after our meal. The weather was great, and the area is adorable. There's also plenty of parking and the pricing isn't terrible, and there are a bunch of shops in the area so you can hang around before or after you eat.
Loved my experience here and I'd absolutely go back!
What a great dining experience. I was impressed from the moment our server introduced himself. He was extremely knowledgeable about the food and cocktails and it was more of a conversation than someone rattling off something they memorized. He was attentive and never had to ask for refills etc....The food was fantastic and I loved the southern food with some Korean influence. I had the pimento cheese burger and it was hands down one of the best burgers I’ve ever had. Instead of the fries I had their succotash curry and I had a hard time sharing it. I highly recommend this place
Great overall scene. The one note and maybe because they had just opened 30 minutes prior, but a co-worker ordered the Chicken and Waffles. They both seemed forgotten and then over cooked. All of the other meals where great and everyone loved the desert.
Overall good experience. Robust and innovative menu. Service is OK. I would go back because of the menu.
Had problems the first time with taste and service, but tried again with the most expensive meal and some extras. Food was delicious this time and service was better, BUT at 100 per person not that great and service was sub par. This is a hit or miss kind of a place.
Thank you for an amazing first time experience
The food was very flavorful. We greeted and seated promptly by the hostess. Our server was knowledgeable about the food and gave great recommendations. Our food was served quickly. Our server Taylor continuously checked on us. The red velvet dessert was delectable.
The crispy catfish was excellent, as was the trout my date ordered. It's on the expensive side - but so is everything else in National Harbor. Noisy. The wine selection is not big, but is good quality. We liked the oysters on the half shell; but Succotash offered only one kind of oyster - Rappahannock. The waiter said "You have to get oysters locally." I disagree. I'm all for local aquaculture, but Blue Points, Kusshis, and even Belons can be found in comparable restaurants in the DC area.
Despite the lack of selection for oysters, I would go back. Just know that it's noisy and not cheap.
Absolutely delicious spot for brunch or dinner! I highly recommend the 'Taste of the South' option -- a great tasting of all that Succotash has to offer.
Really unique combinations in both food and drinks. Great for foodies!! Get the chicken and waffles, you won’t be disappointed!
Road trip stopover. Amazing food, service was mostly well done
Food was delicious. I think it was just a bad night for service. It took over an hour to get our drinks so we kept eating apps hoping to get our drinks, they never came, we gave up, didn't eat dinner, left hungry. They comped us, but we were still hungry and no drinky drink...Otherwise, atmosphere is nice, ate outside on a cool night and the food was awesome!
Creative southern style offerings, excellent cocktails, endless bourbon/whiskey choices and top notch service
The food was amazing. I had the dirty chicken and my friend had chicken and waffles. We wanted everthing that they walked past our table with. Portion sizes are large so bring your appetite.
It was ok. I didn’t believe the portion size matched the prices and there is a lack of variety.
Excellent service. Unique menu that was really good. Recommend the chicken and waffle, Fried Okra app & Cheese grits. The Milk Punch cocktail was smooth and special.
Kitchen was extremely slow with not alot of patrons in restaurant. Waitress did give my daughter a free lemonade for the wait. Food was good. Love the fried green tomatoes w/ arugula.
My boyfriend and I went for our anniversary. we've been together since we were kids. Really enjoyed the Taste of the South I think thats what its called. My favorite were the fried green tomatoes lol. Cinnamon buns were delicious. and the chicken and waffles had a kick to them, very nice i must say.
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.
Great meal at Succotash. Everything we expected. Excellent menu, phenomenal bourbon selection. Will definitely visit again.
Cody was amazing!!
