SUCCOTASH is named after the classic dish that has been a longstanding staple of the Southern table. While many know “Succotash” when they see it, the dish has been interpreted, modified, and passed from generation to generation for centuries. Our “Succotash” is special to us and we invite you to experience the South from our point of view.

I’ve always been a huge fan of the food at Succotash but routinely disappointed by the staff—this visit was unfortunately no different. From the standoffishness of the host staff when we arrived, to our server rushing though every stage of our meal and only being particularly pleasant right before we filled out her tip, I just get bad vibes from this place (even though the food really is *excellent*). Having been to the many other restaurants in the area with better hospitality, just manage your expectations.
This place is a whole vibe — great food, strong drinks, and great service.
Was not satisfied. Food took forever, poor service,
This place is always good. The food is delicious. The service is friendly and knowledgeable and the atmosphere is great. I recommend the dirty chicken.
Love succotash, but the food was slightly underwhelming compared to last time. I think the biggest factor was our table was in the corner, right under the heater, which made the air dry and affected the taste of the food.
Thank you to the host to holding the table for a birthday brunch! Food was amazing, restaurant ambience was very nice as it was my first time there.
Yaya was an amazing server! She gave great suggestions and would look to have her again!
Hostess was rude right when we walked in. We were seated at a very small table in the middle of traffic even though there were many larger tables open. Waitress was lovely, but it took forever for drinks and apps to come. When they did, the entree arrived immediately. This was uncomfortable because we were at such a small table. The food was disappointing.
Our go to every time we come in from NYC. The staff and management are great. We love the food, the service and the drinks.
Great ambiance. Stellar service. Unfortunately, not impressed by food.
I went to Succotash PRIME for brunch. Our waiter Asreale (may have spelled it wrong) was very attentive. I've been here multiple times and the service and food have always been consistent.
Great food, great service, beautiful space. One of my favorite brunch spots.
Incredibly comfortable with fantastic service. I’ve never been more pleased with the personnel in a restaurant, they were gracious and personable. The food was prepared with care and full of flavor. I will be returning soon.
We booked a last minute reservation for New Years Eve and had an amazing experience!
The food, service, and ambience was perfect for ringing in the new year. Can’t wait to come back!
Here for my sons 13th birthday- dinner did not disappoint!
Our server Kristen was outstanding. She was personable and sweet. The food and drinks were outstanding.
Food was great. Restaurant service was really good. Would go back
We were celebrating my 50th birthday and our 26th wedding anniversary. The staff was amazing. Our server was one of the best I ever had. The menu was so unique and creative. We started with deviled eggs for an appetizer, 2 each with the bacon jam and 2 with the pickled tomatoes. I had the dry aged ribeye steak that was the prepared perfectly in the smoker and the collard greens with ham and kimchi. My wife had the pimento cheese burger. We both loved our meals. Additionally, I had some of their signature drinks. I had the campfire bourbon drink, which was a cider drink with bourbon and a cinnamon stick, the old fashioned with smoked honey and the frost drink from the holiday menu. We finished the night off by splitting Nana’s banana pudding, and our server graciously added a dessert sampler that included the bourbon chocolate pecan pie with the orange whipped cream. I can’t wait to eat here again.
Excellent food. Excellent Service.
I will definitely be back for the dirty chicken!
Not the best.....terrible Christmas crowd, had everyone too close together with COVID omicron variant out there
The service and food was amazing we will return!
Very Disappointed in Christmas experience.
In a relatively slow period of time, we were sat by the bathroom and had to hear the air blowers every few minutes. Christmas menu was the reason I made a reservation for 6 for Christmas Day supper. It was not very busy at 3 pm, but it still took 15 minutes to be properly greeted and drink orders taken. Another 15-20 to order appetizers. When I asked to see the Christmas menu the server told us they ran out of lobster. That must have been their reason to NOT hand out the Christmas menu at all. I asked several times to see the menu and he kept repeating the specials verbally. This was not helpful and was quite frustrating. I chose this restaurant for the Christmas menu and they ran out of one of 2 entree options by 3 pm then pull the menu? The oysters were good, but the fried green tomatoes were covered in salad on top making them soggy. The Servers changed out and that was never explained or properly introduced, tomahawk was undercooked and very fatty cut, sauces not explained which was which, we were never asked if the drinks and food were to our liking. It was a very amateurish and disappointing holiday experience that I paid a lot for. I won’t be back.
Great service and great food. My wife and I love Succotash Prime and highly recommend it.
Our server was so kind and accommodating and the food was out of this world, one of the most memorable meals I've ever had.
We ate here before a show at the Shakespeare Theatre and loved everything we had. The cocktails were wonderful, appetizer great especially the green beans. Everyone really enjoyed their entrees as well. The burger just melted in your mouth. We would come again.
Absolutely amazing taste of the South dinner! Beautiful place and great food!
The shrimp and grits were delicious. The cesar salad was very pretty and tasty, but a bit too much vinegar in the dressing. Dining mates loved the fried chicken and the oysters. We sat at one of the banquettes with chairs placed on the outside for two of the four in our party. The chairs were a bit awkwardly placed, seeing to be in the middle of walkway aisles, and the table was a bit small for four people. Overall, it was a lovely evening and we will definitely go again.
Our server Kristen (spelling?) took care of us upstairs for dinner on 12/19. She was awesome and definitely contributed to our experience. We will be coming back (again).
The staff at the restaurant was super friendly and accommodating. The food was fantastic as well!
Amazing meal. We had the southern sampler for two, it was a lot of food for the $$ and delicious front to back. Very cool room and excellent service. Would go back again on next visit to dc for sure.
Experience overall was great; just a few hang ups: my friend’s drink was wrong all 3 times and you really need to be prepared to be there for at least 2 hours.
Service was not good.
We had a great time at Succotash for brunch! Everything was flavorful and hand-made. Even the ketchup had a nice gochujang kick! You can really feel the unique ambiance and attention to detail. Feels like a quintessential DC restaurant with a unique southern feel. We will definitely be returning!
Wanted to check out succotash largely for the ambiance (gorgeous!) but the food and service took the experience to the top level. Typical southern food that you might dismiss because it’s “been done” has unexpected surprises, and the team makes sure you have everything you need while leaving you smiling. Definitely recommend the Taste of the South for a good mix of fan favorites.
The food was wonderful. The seating was not ideal with a very small table right by the bathroom. The waiter did not seem to listen to our order instructions as much as we would have liked but the quality of the food was delicious.
Foodies beware - the food is awful at this place! I cannot understand the high reviews (mid-west tourists who think Applebees is edible?). It is a restaurant created by a design group called Knead. Thus, it's a perfect 'gramable space for taking selfies to post, but otherwise bad food at high prices. They don't know how to make cornbread, gross dry little mini-muffin things. We had the salmon with the largest piece of broccolini I've ever seen, which was served cold and extra bitter & pork ribs (meh) served between disgusting mushy wet dirty rice and topped with "creamy slaw" (a bitter crunchy mess mixed in with BBQ sauce). Wouldn't have expected the food to be this bad. Spare yourself and eat elsewhere!
FOOD WAS AMAZING. The vibe is breathtaking and grand. The Belle’s Punch is a must! Mac and Cheese left us speechless. Greens were bathed in all the right juices. Babyyyy just go and spend a coin, you deserve it! Prices were reasonable and value was exceptional! I will be back!
we got a private booth for our party of 5, which was great for the conversation. The service was great, food and drinks outstanding.
