Georgia Brown's Restaurant Review

: Southern cooking appeals to the child in us who likes crunchy fried chicken and mashed potatoes splashed with a rich brown gravy. Of course, downtown's Georgia Brown’s is really for adults, with its upscale décor, bar area and menu; just check the place during cocktail hour or at lunch. But the warm country biscuits and cornbread sticks, the crispy catfish fingers and the cherry pepper vinegar are reminders of traditional Southern (that is, South Carolinian) home cooking. Other treats? Fried chicken, Charleston she-crab soup, fried green tomatoes and jumbo lump crab cakes. For dessert, servers tempt with a tray displaying Key lime pie, sweet potato cheesecake, peach cobbler and bourbon pecan pie, all served with a scoop of Jack Daniels ice cream. Sunday jazz brunch presents music and a sumptuous buffet table that will entice you to overeat with the likes of gumbo and shrimp and grits.
