We went here on a recommendation of a neighbor on a Sunday afternoon. The atmosphere was old and dingy. The food was mediocre at best. My roll tasted burnt even though it wasn't and was very dry. There place was nearly empty of patrons and I am not surprised. You can only pay with cash which is a hassle. Needless... More

When we pulled up after a day in the mountains, we were a little skeptical. We were in for a change of opinion. I had a taste for a nice piece of beef. Our food was delicious. We're from the Chicago area and have access to many great steak restaurants and prime rib is my favorite cut. I saw it... More

My associate and I meet for lunch every Wednesday and decided to try Branywine instead of dining at our usual restaurant. Our server was attentive, polite and sometimes humorous. We both had steaks which were very good however, there was nothing exceptional. The atmosphere is very warm, laid back and comfortable and we found the prices very reasonable considering what...

we came late one afternoon, & were the only people there, but APRIL treated us like royalty! Our food was made to order & so what was supposed to be hot was hot, & what was chilled was chilled. VERY GOOD! The outside presentation/approach needs updating, looks like a local dive (which I think it largely is), but inside was... More

A little pricey but the food is good. Great location just off of the interstate, lots of parking. Next to Tana-See Campground.

Nothing really special. They no longer offer free rolls. You have to ask for them we were told. The place is rather expensive even on the nights when there are specials

When we pulled into the parking lot and saw all of the trucks, we knew this was a place for good food, good helpings, and excellent hospitality! Neila was our server, it was like your fun aunt helping you with dinner. I ordered the BBQ chicken (hickory smoke sauce) and my wife got the meatloaf dinner. Both were excellent tasting... More

Had another great experience at Brandywine. The Bluegrass band was excellent along with the food and service. Brittany was our server and she was awesome. Will be back again.

The attraction for me has been their fried catfish, but this time I believe they substituted tilapia for catfish. It used to be much better, but the filet shaspe and taste was just not the catfish I remember. When I asked the server if it was now tilapia, the server promptly answered, "no,its catfish". Just tasted too muddy for my... More
