Food and service were really good! The drinks were just OK. They need to learn how to make a dirty martini (e.g. use real olive juice).

The decor was nice and the staff were all very friendly and attentive. I had the shrimp and grits. The flavor was very tasty but the shrimp was slightly overcooked. Excellent selection of craft beers.

We sat outside on a nice patio on a pleasant April evening. Our waiter was very nice and attentive. We got the brussels sprouts appetizer and it was delicious. Very crispy, quite addictive. I got the fried lobster roll and will not get it again. It was good, but I prefer a traditional roll with a mixture of tail and claw. I found the tail to be stringy. I'll try something else next time. Greg got the salmon salad and loved it. It came with a lemon vinaigrette, which was tangy and tasty. This is a very good restaurant. Prices are very reasonable..

This restaurant does not disappoint. Service tonight from Isabelle was great and good conversation! Each time we have come the staff has been first class which makes you want to come back. We finally broke out of our 'favorite foods' mode and tried two new dishes. Both excellent! The Grouper Fish & Chips and the Salmon.

We enjoyed a great lunch here. My husband was in the mood for a Guinness, but they don’t stock it, so they brought him a few samples of others. He chose one that he was very happy with. The burger was delicious, chicken & waffles 👍and all the other items were wonderful. I would recommend anytime

We couldn't have been more pleased with our experience than We were We had the lobster/corn dip, chicken risotto, corn fried lobster sandwich and their glorious brussel sprouts. We enjoyed their hand crafted cocktails and the chocolate and Guinness cake. Gina, our server was lovely and service was prompt.

Great experience. Went with my wife and another couple. Waitress was knowledgable and receptive. The place is small, but didn't feel cramped with seating. Cocktails were tasty as we tried a few of their own creations from their menu. I had a delicious braised brisket sandwich, my wife had a Cobb salad with fried chicken, and the other couple each had the Roasted Turkey Waldorf salad. Everyone was pleased with their choices, but the consensus is that my brisket sandwich looked the best :-) We had the delicious brussel sprouts as an appetizer... highly recommended. Only bummer was that they were out of the Bavarian Pretzel app which we wanted to try, which was a bit weird as we had early (6:00 pm) reservations, but that was no biggie. We'll try them next time.

I've never described a restaurant experience as bespoke, but that is hands-down how I would describe Branch & Barrel. From the time we sat down to the time we left, we were treated like the most important people in the room. Our waitress was outstanding, making well-informed suggestions on whiskey and wine. She even brought the chef out at one point to talk to my fiancee about how he makes the green beans.

Despite being in the middle of the room, it felt very private and intimate.

While this is not a place for those on a budget, their food is well worth the cost. 100% would recommend. We will be back.

The appetizers and entrees were fantastic, but the dessert (brownie/blondie stack) was a bit of a disappointment. We asked if the brownies would be heated and were assured they would be, but they were almost as cold as the ice cream. Other than that, the meal was great!
