This remains one of my favorite restaurants to dine, especially with its Jazz Brunch on Sundays. The food is spectacular and the music amazing.

Dark and stormy was a good drink.

Appetizer - catfish was good and fresh.

Dinner - the fresh trout was good and it came with veggies which were very good and spinach. I switched the mashed potatoes for the spinach. The food was warm. I've seen that on other reviews but it's like warm to eat right at that moment. The service is fast.

Georgia Brown's food was fantastic! The fried chicken dinner was delicious. Our waiter was great as I had a diner with me that needed gluten free menu. He helped her work through the menu to determine what her options were for dinner. He was very attentive without being annoying. The restaurant itself needs some updating..it was a bit dated and worn. Some sprucing up would help the atomosphere. Overall experience was nice.

The food was terrible. Had the meatloaf and it tasted horrible. It appeared the gravy on top was out of a jar. The potatoes were hardly present with the meal.

We ordered a variety of food. Everything was pretty decent. The sides were quite tasteful between the macaroni cheese and collard greens. I completely forgot about the cake and cupcake policy. We were not going to pay almost $4.00 per person to put my cake and cupcakes on their plates. They kindly agreed to place our desserts in their refrigerator and we took the items back home with us. Needless to say dinner was fine. The server was very pleasant and we took our desserts back home.

The restaurant needs some renovations. It looks worn down. The food was just mediocre. The waiter was good. It was too expensive for the quality received.

Gumbo was served Luke warm with cold pieces of crab meat on top. Sent it back and the plate was redone properly. Chicken livers were good. Hearty portions. Corn bread was just ok. I was disappointed. Bathrooms were messy and we arrived when they opened at 5:30pm on Sunday. Glory days may be over.

It was my birthday. I have been to Georgia Brown’s many times over the years to celebrate with friends and family. In fact I celebrated my 21st birthday there. So going back for 43rd was a no brainer. Our experience yesterday was subpar. Our server did not listen to us and generally ignored us. He did not bring me the ice tea I asked for and he would leave our used buffet plates stacked on the table. We sat there and watched as he gave better service to the tables around us. We had to ask for the check even though we had stopped eating after being there for a hour. The food was cold and greasy. Not what I expected for a $45 dollar brunch. Our sever then charged my Amex twice for my meal. The manager came over and assured me the charge would drop off once they reconciled their credit charges at the end of the night. It’s the next day and I still have two charges on my card. I will not be back.

The food here is excellent, service is outstanding, ambience is nice but restaurant needs a face lift. The bathrooms were not very clean, and the entire restaurant has a bathroom odor. I would come back but would probably do outdoor seating if the weather is nice.

Our family was celebrating a graduation and for many it was their first visit to DC and to Georgia Brown's! The service was excellent! The food amazing---the value incredible! I wish we could have come to brunch on Sunday but they were leaving Sunday morning. Thanks for a memorable and delicious experience!

"Get out of town! This is great!" is what my friend from Colorado said when we went out to eat at Georgia Brown's. It might be a little pricy, but DEFINITELY worth it!

We were so disappointed. We had not been there in a few years because we are from out of town. The restaurant was hot. The air conditioner was not cooling. The waiter was very very slow. He could not remember our orders. My iced tea came with very little ice. I had to ask 3 different people for ice. The buffet included a entree you could order also. He forgot to turn in order. The jazz was really good but being up close to jazz group and the heat it was an uncomfortable experience.

This was a favorite place for us but will not come back. It was very expensive for our experience.

Our first time here, celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary. Great way to end our weekend with Sunday brunch. Food was delicious and fresh, with great service (Tiffany) on top of that. You'll see us back soon!

I really loved the band /singer; what a Beautiful voice she has! GB's has a great thing going with the Jazz brunch. I would like to recommend them updating their "take home" portion of brunch or adding some different seasonal choices. It seems they've had those same choices forever! Restaurants like this should continuously look to keep things fresh and exciting. My favorite thing? The syrup with pecans!!! It just takes my waffles and French toast to another level, lol! The Georgia Peach martini is divine, too!

Not sure what’s going on (or not) in the kitchen but the food was not good, not seasoning and not the same as in previous years. A southern restaurant’s food should taste somewhat like home cooking. Brunch At Georgia Brown’s was not very appetizing and A bit disappointing. We have dined for special celebrations or no occasion over the years and today was not good It was very bland. Not sure who’s in the kitchen cooking but some soul is definitely needed back there.

I used to really like Georgia Brown's. I have visited several times since it opened. However, I think that the the food has lost something over the years. I won't be rushing to come back anytime soon.

My husband and I are vacationing in DC from the San Francisco Bay Area. We received a recommendation fro good friends to go to your restaurant. We had a very good dinner. However, my husband said that the Buttermilk Fried Chicken that he ordered was very dry. He was definitely disappointed. Otherwise, the service was excellent and we had a good time.

We have eaten at Georgia Browns DC many times before. We had a reservation but arrived about 20 minutes early. They acted like they wouldn’t seat us until our reservation time or when our whole party got there even through the restaurant wasn’t crowded and didn’t fill up at any point while we were there.

Georgia Brown's is our must stop on every trip to DC. This is the first reservation we make right after we get our travel tickets. My daughter can't simply live without it. We started eating here since 2007 and while they change, they never disappoint! We love the food, especially omelets, grits and chocolate fondue. I am please to see more vegetarian and vegan choices while still preserving their Sothern rich and spicy meals charm. Live jazz, atmosphere of celebration, excellent stuff add to the celebratory mood and start our trip on a high note. We will be back again!

The jazz from the band and general music was great. The food was awesome and delicious, and breakfast buffet had fresh food often and it was unique to anything I’ve been to. Also awesome to take home a dish from the menu for the price of the meal.

The staff was friendly. The server was nice. The food was a great concept but it was off a little. We started with the friend green tomatoes, it was very good. We ordered the crab cakes- great filling but very undercooked- the center was cool/ like cold with only a light crust on the top and bottom. The collared greens were fresh and tender, with a whisper of sweetness. The homemade chips - were stale and not fresh at all. The salmon was ok a bit over cooked. The kale was over cooked. The potatoes and mushrooms were good.

The cornbread was good - sweet with a hint of heat that was paired well with peach butter. The homemade hot sauce it a sure thing and added lots of additional flavor.

We were too tired from a long day in the city to wait for a manager or / reorder as the place was very busy. We paid and left.

We came from Ohio to Washington and this Restaurant was highly recommended. It did not disappoint. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was good. We took out older sister out for her 65th birthday. She requested no fanfare and it was respected. Just good food, family and relaxing atmosphere. Would definitely go there again.
