Upscale American fare with subtle Southern flair at this downtown hot spot. – In Short
Just a block from Greektown's strip of eateries, Sweet Georgia Brown features curvy retro booths and mirrors and rich textiles in muted shades of gold and green. "Fine food and all that jazz" are the promise, with live music complementing the chic soul food on most nights. Fried lobster is a popular signature dish, and sweet potatoes come in three configurations. Stay for dessert, as the Georgia peach cobbler is more than enough for two.
This is it!!! – Ooooh My God! This restaurant is awesome. Service are great. People who work there are very professional. Food and ambience is great. I am very pleased everything what I had experienced. I had a fillet mignon it melt in your mouth. Their crab and shrimp cake is very very good. It is not too expensive and not cheap. It is perfect price if you are looking for great restaurant. They have a piano and player. If you want to have romantic dinner or special dinner, I would highly recommend. I will go back again to try more food.
Slow and Mediocre – Unfortunately, when we went to the restaurant for a special occasion, we found the service to be unexplainably slow and the food to be quite dry. We had a group of 8. It's a pretty restaurant, but needs some management present. Also, it is not well marked on the outside at night for people going for the first time.
Positive Experience – This resturant was recommended to me as I was in town on vacation. I took my wife there for our 5 year anniversary. While I wasn't blown away by the atmosphere, it wasn't too noisy and our service was fantastic! We started out with great Crab Cakes. My wife really enjoyed the Maple Glazed Barbeque Shrimp (a 10) and my Southern Comfort Pork Chops were good (8.0). We shared the Peach Cobbler which was enough for two. They also suprised us with a special anniversary dessert (which I think was the Godiva Chocolate Torte). Both desserts were top notch, although I enjoyed the Chocolate a little me. The meal ran about $85 with tip, which is pretty good.
Disappointing – This was my second trip to Sweet Georgia Brown and had I written after my first visit (2 years ago) I would have agreed with all of the previous reviews--at that time the place was fantastic. This visit, however, was a major disappointment.
My main complaint is with the food--the quality has gone down. Nothing was great. I had the signature dish--the Trio with lobster, filet, and a crab cake. It was bad--cold, not well cooked, and not flavorful at all. The fried lobster was such a disappointment especially since it was SO wonderful the first time I was there. The appetizers and salads were good, but they don;t make the meal.
The other people I was with had better luck, but the food was just good--nothing out of the ordinary. And it was expensive ($400!!!)
Hopefully this was just a bad day, but I don;t plan on going back.
Simply Wonderful – I was refered by a friend to stop by "Sweet Georgia Brown" while I was in Detroit on Business. She showed me an article from a magazine and I read it. I told myself that it was my first time in Detroit, but that was one place I had to go to. The article that I read was completely true and to much of my satisfaction. My visit exceed my expectations and I was pleased with the service and the food was extrodinaire. I couldn't choose what I wanted to order because everything on the menu sounded so good. I had to order several things because I just had to taste them. Even the fried green tomatoes were so tastey. I will be back soon .
Extradinary -- and I mean Extra Ordinary – While visiting Detroit from South Florida, my friend took me to Sweet Georgia's. The experience was great! I was treated like a Queen (that I am) and the Ambience was mezerizing; the Food & the Staff was Extra Ordinary... The Manager/Owner??? visited our table several times and the Waitstaff was absolutely sure we were satisfied. If your looking for a "filling" on heavy soul food - you won't find it there; but if you want a very pleasant, enjoyable evening, this is the place.
I enjoyed the dinning expierence, celebrated a retirement luncheon there with a group of friends. The food as well as service was very good and the deserts was wonderful.
Fantistic! – As they say, location, location, location-in Detroit's Greektown. The food, and service is fantistic.
Excellent for an individual, a couple, or a large group. Can I say more? Suggest you leave your kids at home--------why not bring them a doggie bag. Make reservations so you're not disappointed.
Con-reservations may need to be made months in advance for holidays.
Sweet Brunch – I've have been to brunch at Sweet Georgia Brown's twice now. Even though the price is a little on the steep side it is well worth the money spent. The service is excellent. They are very accomidating. The food is out of this world especially if you are open to new experiences.
