Came here for Sunday Brunch and the Hot Brown Casserole, Well, they don't serve the hot brown casserole anymore. However they did prepare to order for me a serving of the legendary hot brown. The service at this restaurant was over the top. The food was fresh and delicious! The setting is elegant and nostalgic. I give J. Grahams the... More

I love the atmosphere of J Grahams Cafe and the Brown Hotel. The host whose name was Judd, made us feel very welcome and treated our entire party with gracious hospitality which made my Birthday Lunch so much fun! The wait staff were very attentive and we could not have asked for better service. The buffet was amazing and I... More

The host and waitstaff could not be more friendly and hospitable. The breakfast was delicious (I had eggs, grits, sausage), and the coffee was excellent. To top it off it's in a beautiful, historic hotel. Highly recommended!

The food and cocktails were very good. The Hot Brown, can definitely be a meal for two. Chicken salad was very nice. Very friendly and informative service.

Family lunch at the Brown Hotel. The hot brown was a favorite at the table. The steak/mushroom reuben is different but enjoyable (still on the fence about the sweet potato tots). Yes, the reuben has sauerkraut on it with the steak and mushrooms. My husband enjoyed the BLT. I would say out of the 3 meals, the hot brown was... More

Had a great breakfast at this cafe. The staff was very friendly while being very professional in their duties. Had the signature Hot Brown, which is an experience not to be missed.

My wife, granddaughter and I had lunch at J Grahams. It was terrific. The Brown Hotel is an historic building which adds to the experience. The menu was varied. We will certainly return

You are doing yourself a disservice if you do not experience the quality of the Hot Brown signature dish

This place gets better with every visit. Went with a group of 6 for the lunch buffet. The service was exceptional. The manager heard that we had a question about a dessert and came by the table to answer. The pastry chef visited our table because she heard we were raving about the desserts. The server and assistants took care... More
