Started out at the Bar waiting for the dining room to open on a weeknight (5:00PM). Bartender Paul, (this guy has the voice of the ages!) made a perfect Cosmo. Looked at the Bar menu and the dining room menu and decided to go upstairs for dinner. We were escorted to our table (along the wall of this former church.... More

Had dinner there Friday night. Since we went early it was not so crowded but I can understand the noise complaints. Everyone is on top of each other. The food was very good - a little pricey but not too high. The Eggplant Ophelia and the pork chop were both very good. The setting in a converted church is different... More

With all my trips to the New Hope area I missed Marsha Brown's as I thought the building was a church. I'm so glad I found it. The interior is beautiful. We had lunch in the tavern portion. I will certainly go back with my husband for that touch of New Orleans which is a city I love. It was... More

First it is New Orleans Cajun based food set in an old church with a 20 foot fresco on one entire wall. Now that is usual. Seating is bar on first floor, middle floor dining, and balcony with dining. Menu is similar to Ruth Chris and we were told that the owner owns several RC Steak houses around the country.... More

Came to Marsha Brown's on a friend's recommendation on a weekend getaway to celebrate my husband's promotion. Didn't expect it to be New Orleans style food, but it was very tasty. Inside it was beautiful and we had a great seat upstairs in the back to take in the entire room. Really enjoyed our dinner and would definately would recommend... More

This was the most memorable meal I've had since moving to the Philadelphia suburbs 17 years ago. The trip to New Hope isn't a bad drive. The service was perfect - - from drinks in the downstairs bar to dinner upstairs in the "church". The gumbo ya ya was tasty and the steaks were cooked to perfection.

We have been to Marsha Brown's several times and it is my favorite restaurant in New Hope...I love the building and the food is amazing...I ordered the Surf and Turf, wonderful as usual...It is rare for a restaurant to prepare a piece of meat properly to my standards, and they did it again, PERFECT...

We came here on a Saturday for lunch and it was fabulous. The lobster and shrimp bisque was divine and served with fresh bread and butter. We both ordered the Eggplant Ophelia and were so pleased that we decided to return on another day of our little vacation. On Wednesday afternoon we returned and ordered the same dishes as Saturday.... More

Hard to rate. If you are expecting true Creole/cajun - don't bother. If you want a steak this is your place. The good.. tournedos with sauce Au Pouvre were excellent. Beet salad was great! Pecan Pie was great! The average. Gumbo ya ya - could use more flavor. The shrimp salmon Meh. Crawfish Etoufee - average to poor - absolutely... More
