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.

Valentine's Day Special Menus & More
Celebrate Valentine's Day weekend at Succotash PRIME. We'll be offering a special a la carte menu from February 11th-14th, along with our regular menu offerings.
The positive - my waitress was excellent. Attentive and answered all questions. Showed no annoyance when half my party was delayed and late (I failed on that front). When I selected an entree, she brought me the sauce to make sure I would like it. Very smart.
The negative - the menu made promises that weren't met. I ordered the Dirty Chicken which is billed as thighs and legs. I received 4 small drumsticks. This was not really suitable for an entree. I wonder if I got the appetizer portion by mistake (although that also is supposed to be legs and thighs)? If they were out of legs and thighs, the kitchen should have informed me rather than just substituting the main component of the dish. I would not have ordered the Dirty Chicken if I knew it would be drumsticks since I was at a business dinner and drumsticks really require fingers (I did my best getting the small morsels of meat off the bone with a fork and knife, hoping a wrong move wouldn't send a drumstick flying across the table). The drumsticks also seemed to have been cooked as if they were legs and thighs - they were very overcooked. Others at the table also pretty much all thought their meals fell short of what was promised by the menu. I don't plan on returning.
The chicken is crispy, yet juicy. Stamp!
The collards with kimchi are bumpin'!
They have live music that's enjoyable.
We went during restaurant and and everything was delicious. The service was speedy and the staff was friendly. Will definitely frequent.
Excellent experience overall! Highly recommend for all!
The experience was truly fantastic! The food was delicious, and the wait staff was extremely knowledgeable and stayed on top of things in spite of it being a busy night due to restaurant week. I’ll have to visit again!
We were there for restaurant week and they were able to accommodate us when we couldn’t make it on time. They gave us an amazing private booth And the menu They allowed us to try everything , Which was a great variety and extremely tasty. Server was great as well and very helpful!
Nice menu, great waitress
Our waitress was lovely, when she finally arrived. The food, for restaurant week, was delicious but portions were a little small. However, we would definitely go back!
A great place with nice atmosphere and food. We enjoyed restaurant week options.
Let's start with the service I received when I needed to increase my reservation from 6 to 8. The hostess quickly accommodated my request and informed me of the menu options necessary to accept the accommodations. Next, upon arrival the Manager JoJo was exceptional. He informed me five members of my party had arrived and was sitting at the bar. He escorted me to the bar area, informed my guest our table was ready and that he could escort us to our table (one level up) after everyone settled their bar tab. Not only did he take us to our table,but before doing so he also pulled out a large tray and put everyone's drink on it, he carried the drinks, waited for us to be seated then placed the drinks correctly by each guest. Our table was set with the family styled menus and a wine list. Next, our server Kee was no slouch either. He quickly took drink orders for the remaining three that didn't have a drink, explained the "family style" menu options dashed away to put in our drink order. The drinks were on point! Then we were greeted by Jake (maybe manager) who offered assistance with placement of food and taking additional drink orders. Jake had a answer for everything! I forgot to mention they had live music which just took everything completely over the top and made the birthday dinner for my aunt all that I wanted it to be. WELL DONE Succotash PRIME!!
Nice, we had an early dinner to wait out the rush hour traffic. Food and service were all very nice. Portion sizes are what you would expect for fancy dinning...so don't hesitate to order an app if you want. We ordered the smoked wings...recommend. I got the catfish for my entree, it was fabulous. My husband ordered the ribs, which he enjoyed. They were not as meaty as he expected, but were tasty nevertheless. We also ordered the succotash...it was amazing. When we were leaving a live band was getting ready to start. Thank you for a great dinner, we plan to return.
DELICIOUS food. Also the best whiskey sour that I have ever had.
Our server Ya Ya was AMAZING. The drinks were great, the food was wonderful, the location is fantastic, and the ambiance is phenomenal. It's a beautiful space and I will definitely come back.
Everything was amazing.. food, service, etc. We will be back!
Great ambience, food and service all around!
It was our first visit, but certainly won't be the last.
Friendly staff and a really cool bi-level retro dining room , our waiter Kwame was attentive, knew the menu, and was excellent, with a ton of patience for a larger group on a busy evening. Loved the chicken and waffles, shrimp and grits, and the succotash with some great craft cocktails.
On a snowy night it was a wonderful evening. Service was excellent and the interior was beautiful. Really nicely done oysters and a crab cake to start. Good ribs and a perfectly done filet. Well done cocktails and a surprise chocolate desert.
A wonderful time as always! We dined on a snowy evening this past Sunday, and the place was quiet and extra chill. We enjoyed some happy hour drinks and snacks at the bar (excellent service by the bartender) and if you haven't had the southern sangria and deviled eggs, have you truly lived? Then we went to that super romantic private table in the back (big thank you to the host for saving it for us) and enjoyed a beautiful meal. The fried chicken and the creamy succotash are heavenly. Highly recommend the crispy green beans and literally any cocktail on the menu as well. The only thing I'd change is I wish they had a slightly bigger menu. I don't eat seafood and if you don't want to drop a lot on a (delicious) steak, there's not a lot of options. Thanks for a beautiful meal! 💜
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,
It was nice. Good food. Ok service and it was loud.
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
