OK, so the food is good..... BUT the greens had sand in them...... With almost every.... single... bite!! I'm not in the military anymore so I don't dig having sand in my mouth while eating, especially when the standard meal costs $60 per person (The buffet is $40.95 but after tax, tip, and a $5 drink, it was that much). The grits are GREAT!! I did not like the "band" they chose for their "soul" restaurant and I'll leave that there. The waiter was polite but very unhelpful.

I have never been to Georgia Browns for any other meal. I go here for buffet brunch every time I am in D.C. It is rich delicious soul food. This last time was the best by far. (Aug, 2009) There has always been a jazz band but, this time the singer was so melodious and soulful. I had to put my plate down and clap. (I never put the plate down at a buffet) The Buffet comes in 3 Acts: the buffet w/an omelet bar which included shrimps and two kinds of seasoning mixes. Try the cajun (spicy!), an entree (which they encourage you to take to go) and finally buffet desserts. Peach Cobbler was presented hot on warm bricks, so good. So much delicious food and the take home portion put this spot over the top for me. I had a terrific brunch and later a great dinner at home. Caveats: Reservations are a must if you want to sit inside, there are no speakers for outside patrons. The wild life was a little bold (pigeons & insects) Sometimes hard to find the waiter on the outside.

I absolutely Love this place!! The food is great and different for this area, the atmosphere is fun, and the service is always good! Georgia Browns is always a good experience! My reccomendation to anyone who's curious about this place... go, eat, relax, ENJOY!!

After hearing all the rave from many different people about this place, my sister and I decided to check it out for dinner. We got the fried green tomatoes as appetizers and my sister said it was mediocre (she's had them before). For our entrees, my sister got the dish that serves 3 different kinds of seafood cakes (crab, trout and crawfish). The crawfish and trout were really flavorful and good/unusual...however the crabcake was just ok. They came out in cute but small sizes. I got a dish the waitress raved about, shrimp on top of spinach and this creme sauce....it was alright and a bit too heavy....sauce/dish could have been more flavorful. Overall, the meal under-exceeded our expectations and it's questionable if we would come back....wasn't anything out of the ordinary that I would make a special trip for.

Great service. Creative food. Not your avg. DC restaurant.
