I've heard from friends how great Mama Brown is and I checked the latest review, some good some bad, but decided to it a try anyway. It was a very busy around seven but we had booked ahead. There were 2 adults 2 children, I feel they need more variety for children as 1 child is quite fussy and ended... More

This is my first 'one star' review. After seeing much-a-do about Mama Brown's being one of the best places, who serve the best milkshakes we thought this would be ideal for the family with kids...I mean who doesn't love an awesome Milkshake with their chicken and waffles?! Unfortunately we never got to try the Milkshake or Chicken and Waffles and... More

Went there today. Ordered bacon and eggs with toast and a long black coffee. Order came out - no bacon. Had to wait 5 minutes for the bacon. Next table had their chips left off as well. They need to lift their game if they want to survive as a restaurant in Wellington

Visited for lunch after being recommended by friends. This is a Southern American styled restaurant with an interesting decor. The food was good and comes in generous portions. However, the standout for me has to be the milkshakes, they are worth visiting for alone. I'd recommend having one as a dessert as they are very filling and come in a... More

I like the location of restaurant plus service staff is very courteous, polite and friendly. As not many option in chicken I tries their fried chicken burger with Cajun fried for lunch which was great choice. Week special Milkshake cocktail was good as well. Worth to visit.

If your visiting Welly make sure you try Mama Browns. They have the best milkshakes in town and some have a great alcohol hit. The chicken and waffles are a massive meal but are sublime. Great customer service and incredible value make this the place to be!

Loved the food. Had the fried chicken on french bread and the Buffalo wings both wish were really very good. The restaurant also has great milkshakes and a good selection of boutique beers. I really loved the Chocolate, peanut butter and caramel milkshake. The decor is definitely funky with 50's, 60's posters on the walls, plus a few more recent... More

My Partner and I, Dined in for Late Lunch New Years Eve and ordered South Fried Chicken Taco, Fried with Chipotle Lime Mayo and Nachos. Guacamole was fresh, Corn Chips was addictive. Chipotle was tasty and Taco was Beautiful, Chicken was unreal. Thanks.

I've taken the family to Mama Brown's a few times now and this place NEVER disappoints. My kids love the ribs, waffles, chicken ... and on and on. The milkshakes are the best in Wellington easily. You'll need to share through as they can fill you up before you get to the tasty dishes. Look out for the milkshake and... More

Great place for lunch and milkshakes, we had our order lost and they were quick to apologise and offered us our drinks on the house which was nice of them. Would defiantly recommend the milkshakes! Best in Wellington for sure. We had the buffalo wings and chicken burger was very filling and reasonably priced. Would defiantly visit again.
