Never had a "Brown" so thought what the heck, a historical location would be a great place to try my first. This place has been in business for years so I thought I would get a good experience.
Service was slow, even though there were only 3 - 4 tables being serviced, our waitress was friendly, just don't know where they kept disappearing to.
The building itself was very cool, very authentic, but also very dark and a strange layout. There was an empty bar right next to our table, but the alcohol was in another section of the restaurant (Note to manager if you want to sell more alcohol make it visible) . It would have been nice to peruse some of the Bourbons while we waited for our food. Waitress brought us a Bourbon list, but it is not the same as checking out the real deal.
It was early in the afternoon so decided against treating ourselves to some Bourbon for lunch, but wish we would have to maybe make our food more enjoyable. I thought I would enjoy the Brown as I like everything that comes on the plate, but something about it just was not right. I cannot put my finger on it as this was my first (and so far my only) Brown. I ate it all so it was not terrible, but it was bland at best, I was looking for more flavor from everything that goes into it.
I did not have a great experience, but it was not all that bad, I am still up for given it another chance, but it wont be until I check out many of the other restaurants in the area.
