Service was attentive & very accommodating (due to my god allergies)

Food was brought out quickly, very flavorful & fresh ingredients.

Cocktails were flavorful & just the right amount (not weak or watery)

Ambiance was great. Service was pretty good. The menu looked amazing. Appetizers were really good. The main courses were just ok for the money. So many great restaurants out there. We won’t be returning.

Birthday celebration although they didn’t really do anything for it. Service was great. Food was good...noise level was too loud making it difficult to talk.

We arrived a few minutes early and sat at the bar. Wonderful selection of bourbon and craft beers.
Warm friendly bartender with nice knowledge of menu.
My wife’s steak was juicy and tender.

Food good, love the appetizers, drinks good, too. Server friendly, but too talkative. Spent so much time talking with patrons at every table had to wait a long time for drinks. Don't talk too long, keep it professional, be friendly but keep moving it along:):) Especially when customer has no drink:) Thank you!

We've been here three times now; the first two were great, this last time not as much. My hanger steak was great, but the broccoli had too much smoke flavor (pretty intense). My wife got the crab cakes, which were far too salty and had way too much filler. We also got an app and salad, which were both very good, so overall a good, not great experience.

Lance was our server and we had a wine consult with Kevin Beam. Grateful to both, as we were entertaining a work colleague. Food was as amazing as ever! Loved the Brussels sprouts AND the donation to Alpharetta First Responders!!! Really awesome idea. (Wish the donation was more!) We opted for the outdoor seating and it was very comfortable with the fans above. Branch and Barrel is always a sure thing for us! It never disappoints!! Brisket and grouper were our choices tonight!

We arrived early for a 6pm reservation and were seated at 5:45. We didn’t get our food until 7:00. They blamed it on a new menu and not being used to it. When we finally did get our food most of it was luke warm like it had been sitting there. Our drinks were rarely refilled even though the place was almost empty. It was a disappointing first experience and I wouldn’t go back.
