Georgia Brown's offers a wide variety of soul food and "low country" fare served with Southern hospitality. Select from the traditional dishes of South Carolina, such as fried catfish and seafood gumbo, or be daring and try the shrimp and grits or frogmore stew. In a nod to the health conscious, Georgia Brown's also offers vegetarian versions of the meat-filled entrees. For a special treat, stop in for Sunday brunch, which features live swing jazz and a generous fixed-price menu. Valet parking is available after 6pm.
Although the Fried Green Tomatoes and Diver Sea Scallops were good, the Southern Fried Chicken with Mashed Potatoes, which should be a classic dish, was tasteless.
Boston Market does a better job with this dish!
Sweet Potato Cheesecake was tasteless as well.
No valet parking available at time the restaurant opened for dinner in an area where street parking is extremely limited.
My son and I ate at Georgia Brown's after visiting the museums in Washington. (He had already scouted the area and knew we would like both the food and the restaurant.) I have NO complaints. The food and service were great. The fried catfish and sweet peach tea confirmed they really were Southern! I wouldn't hesitate to go again, and, Lord willing, I will go again. For a Southern girl to find a Southern restaurant in Washington was more than I dreamed. It was my first time to eat soul food in such an upscale atmosphere, but the combination is a Winner! As an aside, we took our desserts--peach cobbler and pecan pie--and ate them at the White House--well, ok, in the park across from the White House!
Ive been to Georgia Brown's a few times and loved it. Never disapppointed with the food or the staff. I popped in for lunch(couldn't eat it all) in the early summer and sat outside to catch some sun and enjoy good food. No complaints at all. Can't wait to go again. Pricey but worth it.
This food was delicious, and the service was great. So when visiting or living in Washington i highly incourage you to stop in and have a bite. My expierence was great and i hope you have a great one too !
We heard good things...
But, I guess when you have parties of 10 or more, the service is either HIT or MISS... It was a little off target. We loved the atmosphere and the food, but I think some portions were just too small. The service was average at best... For an automatic 18% gratuity, I want to be catered to w/o exception.
I'd try it again in a much more intimate setting, to see how things vary.
My husband and I went to Georgia Brown's today for the first time and experienced the Sunday Jazz Brunch. Sooo glad that we made a reservation on-line, because we were able to walk right in to our table without waiting!
The food was delicious and our waiter was friendly and attentive. We will definitely go back, but next time when we make our reservation, we will ask for a table away from the band. The music was great, but once they started playing, we could not hold a conversation without shouting. And yes, as one reviewer has already pointed out, the drinks should be included with the buffet...at least the standard juices, sodas, milk, and coffee. Still, we are looking forward to going again because the food was great and the atmosphere was so much fun!
We were looking forward to some low country food and arranged to visit Georgia Brown's during our stay in DC. Georgia Brown's was a major disapointment. The atmosphere was unfriendly and I found it impossible to enjoy dinner. The receptionist was rude and almost surly. The atmosphere was so unwelcoming I could not wait to finish our dinner and leave. The food was boring, nothing like we expected, and fairly expensive. The crab soup was watery. I was served something different from what I ordered. While they did not charge me for the mistake, it just confirmed my opinion. Don't waste your time on this one!
I love Greogia brown's , my boy cousins took all the mothers (his girl cousins) in the family there for mothers day, I was eight months pregnant with my first child in 2002, I fell in love with that place, I felt very special there, the food was wonderful and I couldn't eat it all, so now I go back aleast 5 times a year on special occasions, everyone knows when its time to celebrate something special in my life , just where we are going , I don't even have to say a word!
The quality of the food has dimininshed. The bread is hard and does not represent the southern style of preparing bread. The grits are too salty, the chicken more smothered than fried. Overall the food just is not prepared with care as I have experienced in the past. I think that they have changed chefs or cooks. Something is admidst.
