The food was amazing, with the surprise stand out being the side of onion rings! That was completely unexpected. The gumbo was incredibly flavorful, jambalaya, steaks and chopped salad offered a medley of fantastic flavors. The service was spectacular, all in all, a wonderful meal and experience.

Recommend you make a reservation, glad we did. They were busy. Hence, I suppose explains the slow service. Our server was good and so was the service overall. We ordered the special; Halibut. While it was prepared well, the portion didn't seem right. Also, they were presented in medium pieces instead of a full fillet. Again, it could be because they were busy. While my jambalaya was delicious it didn't have any rice as it said on the menu. This made the dish more soup like. I wish they had paid more attn to each dish coming out of the kitchen. And yes, I had to request some bread on the table too. The bread was nice and warm but just got to the table late. We will give them another chance.

The meal was good, but there was a long delay in getting seated. We had 7:30 pm reservations and were not seated until 8:15. We could not get anyone at the bar to look in our direction and get us a drink, so we did not get anything to drink until we were seated. The waitress was good and the manager did come by and provided us with our first two drinks and the dessert for free. I will also say that the appetizers while good were not hot as they should have been. We were told there was a new menu causing problems with the kitchen and that a large party had caused some issues. Given that the restaurant has been around for quite some time, you would not expect these events to cause such problems. I have been to Marsha Brown before, and this is the only reason I would recommend it to a friend. Had Saturday been my first experience, I would not be recommending it.

Really cool place. Food was fair and took 2 hours from when we sat down until we got our entrees. My wife’s lobster ravioli was good but my fish was fair at best. Not worth the price. Not sure I’d go back.

It took 45 minutes to get our food after we ordered at lunch. The burger I got tasted like it was previously frozen. The mac and cheese my son got was buttered noodles with some cheese sprinkled on it. My in-laws got the crab cheesecake and enjoyed it very much. My wife got a salad that she liked. Overall, not impressed. We will not be going back.

Have wanted to try many times and finally did it. We were a party of 5 and everything about this restaurant is outstanding. The menu offers selections is a nice variety and all in the party found something to their liking. I had the jambalaya and it was seasoned perfectly and plentiful.
Service was first class and attentive. Will definitely make a return visit.

I had the chance to visit Marsha Brown's and was very impressed! As I walked up the steps to my table, I literally said WOW! The place is beautiful and unlike any restaurant I have dined at before. My server, Jack, was accommodating, knowledgeable, and friendly. Some of the seats are set where you done next to the others in your party in an intimate setting. We asked for a new table because we wanted to be able to sit across from each other and Jack moved us right away with no issues. He told us about the history of the church and gave us a run down of the menu favorites! I had the coconut shrimp (the side sauce it came with was amazing). I also enjoyed the crab ravioli which was in another amazing sauce! I will be back!

We went there for our 1st Anniversary. The service was wonderful, the place is so beautiful and the food was soooo delicious. We started with the Blue Crab Beignets, then the chopped salad and then we had the Eggplant Ophelia and the Chalmette Scallops. We ended our meal with a chocolate mousse cheesecake that was perfect. The portions are large and the flavors are unique and worth every penny. A must for anyone visiting New Hope PA.
