    Everything was wonderful but it was a little warm in the bar where we ate. I know we are in a heat wave but it was uncomfortable. Grouper with Collards and Grits was amazing.

    We love going to Branchwater for their amazing Brussels sprouts and grilled lobster tails. They are typically consistent which is why we enjoy dining here. We had dinner on 6/21 and the brussels AND lobster tails were over cooked. I’ve worked in the industry before so I don’t like sending food back if it’s edible. I’m hoping this was just a hiccup!

    Thought the food was terrible compared to the Canton location. Corn and crab dip was liquid and potato chips bendable. The broccoli was hard as a rock. No gravy on the post roast and the hummingbird cake was non edible…. dry and hard as a rock. The quilt Cabernet was delicious. There’s that! But for $200, the meal was so disappointing and restaurant needs a facelift. Won’t go to this location ever again.

    Brussels sprouts were overcooked, chicken cutlets were overbreaded and my date’s leg of lamb looked and smelled like a leg of mutton. Service was very spotty. Experience was weak overall.

    Our waitress Rachel was fantastic and we LOVED the food! We ordered the Brussels sprouts appetizer - to die for. The Cabernet was great, as was our entree and dessert! Highly recommend the seared ahi tuna and the crème brûlée. The dining room was a bit dark, so much that people were pulling out their flashlights to read the menu, but it looked like there were some other seating options available that were better lit. As the evening went on it got very loud with the live music and the bar. That was the ONLY downside! Just something to keep in mind if you’re planning to eat here.

    Service with Caden was great. The Whiskey sour was of low quality for a drink so recommend to not order. The sprouts were superb! The Grouper was also awesome. Be careful when you request a change of sides with the main plate since they can charge you a fee for the change. The hummingbird cake was a little bland- definitely not fresh. Overall, a great experience with decent food and good service. We’ll come back again.

    The hostess was rude and unprofessional, ignoring us when we entered even taking another call after finally acknowledging us. Once the server finally came to our table, he was exceptional. He apologized and acknowledged the wait and offered a free dessert for your trouble. His recommendations were excellent, the timing was good and the taste excellent! The grouper and the greens were out of this world! Best ever! We spoke to the mngr and complimented the server. She acknowledged the wayward server and reduced our bill. The server & mngr made up for a bad beginning.

    We had the fried and broiled lobster and the shrimp and grits. Both were very good. The lobster tails were small. Being from New England I prefer one decent size tail rather than several mini and would rather pay extra than not have enough lobster. Service was good and ambiance was nice.

    We had a reservation. Had to wait over 30 minutes to be seated Air condition was broken so we were very uncomfortable. Wish we had been told that at time of arrival and we could of changed plans. Had listed we were there for a birthday celebration, and not one person wished my husband a happy birthday. The Asparagus was way over cooked and woody tasting. I am 5”5 and sitting in the booth we were given, the table came up to our shoulders. Not a very pleasant celebration. On the plus side, the grouper and dill salmon were wonderful. Our server was was very spot on and very sorry about the wAit and the broken air co. We could see he was sweating and having a hard time too. We will try again but maybe in the fall

    Food was mediocre and way over priced. $50.99 is way too much to pay for a 12 ounce NY strip that was not top quality. Will not be giving them another opportunity to take my money

    We visited for a graduation celebration dinner. While our service was good, the food for the most part was terrible. The crab cakes were something you’d expect from an Applebee’s type place but with downtown Atlanta price tag. The steaks we’re all ordered medium and we’re raw. No exaggeration. Had to be sent back. The appetizers were good. Nothing was done for the special occasion. I thought maybe a dessert or something but no mention at all of the occasion. Just disappointing for a $400.00 dinner. We had been to branch water many times prior and the food was Much better.

    We love this restaurant. The food is excellent and they have a variety of choices. The prices are very reasonable and the servings are ample. Our server, Stacy, was fantastic! She was quick, efficient and had a great sense of humor! It was a bit loud in the restaurant, but we were placed in a corner, which helped to cut down a bit on the noise. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

    We waited at our table for 15 minutes without anyone visiting. Finally we went to the hostess desk and asked for a manager. He came, apologized for the delay and offered us an appetizer. Server came, explained she was working in another part of the restaurant but would be serving us. Took our drinks, appetizers, and food orders. One appetizer came, not the other. Server noticed after 5 minutes and went and got it. Told us ours had been delivered to another table. 2 of our 4 entrees arrived. Another 5 minute delay and took the server going back to find the other two. Food was good, not great, but good. Ordered 2 desserts. Two came out…one was wrong. The other while technically correct resembled nothing like strawberry shortcake! The only fruit present was apples?? Server had to once again go back and check on the second dessert. Server removed both appetizers and both desserts from the bill. That was a good attempt at recovery…but this place really needs to figure out what is happening. Some of the worst service I’ve had in a while.

    Food was cold and awful. When I complained the manager said she would fix it. I expected new food on the buffet. Was I wrong!! She said she would get my check (we didn’t eat anything but appetizers). She said she wanted us to come back for a 4 course meal, and offered a voucher that did not even cover the cost of the buffet that we didn’t eat. We used the certificate and paid for the rest of the meal out of pocket. We also tipped the server. We did ask that they bring us the dessert that we paid for. It was not any better than the rest of the meal. I have been to Branchwater several times. Last 2 times were awful. I do not recommend.

    Overpriced, mediocre food. It was super loud on the patio due to a band playing on the green space behind, wish we would have known. We couldn’t even have a conversation. Our waitress was borderline rude. I doubt we would dine here again, even though the location is super close to our house.

    I'm upset that I'm having to write this review. Let's start with we love Branchwater. Our last experience on was not up to par and really bad. We attended Easter brunch. We were sat pretty quickly and our table had silverware (thankfully). Then the waiter came over and placed our water glasses down and then poured water all over my foot and floor. My husband had to ask him to clean it up and other almost fell from all the water. The waiter then stated apps and dessert were ordered then he left. When we walked but again we asked if we could order them. 2 of our party ordered shrimp cocktail. The waiter came back and could us they were out. This was 12:30 and I heard others attempting to order. When the other apps came out the sizes were way too big for lunch/brunch. And I say when they came out because it was 1/2 through our meal. The food on the buffet was OK, just OK and more was anticipated from Branchwater. There were some items that were lower or out and waiting on refills but not quick refills. Finally dessert. If we didn't ask for our order 3 times we might still be waiting. After the 3rd time we asked for the check at the same time. Oh btw did I say that they never asked if we wanted anything from the bar. Isn't that were you make a good % of your profits? Not from our waiter. Not that he was around to really ask. This is a buffet so the wait staff is not overwhelmed with bringing out meals to many tables. Silverware was at a premium and I felt horrible as they had many tables waiting to eat their food as they were behind on clean silverware. Needless to say we are going to wait before we go back to one of our favorite close restaurants. Made for a not so great Easter bunch. Sorry!

    We were disappointed with our first time at Branchwater. It was Easter lunch and they only had buffet at $49.99/per person (that was not noted on their website or I wouldn't have booked a reservation). The breakfast brunch looked good but the other side was disappointing. The green beans were "crunchy", not done, the scalloped potatoes and mac 'n cheese looked good but were very bland (not cooked in any salt water), the roast beef (not prime rib) was tough and the ham didn't have much flavor. The Caesar salad was good but the croutons are spicy and the desserts were good. We had a good server who kept our tea and water glasses full. He was also very pleasant so he helped make our experience more palatable.

    Trying out local restaurants… The table settings and environment started for a good experience, and that was the peak of the experience. The brussel sprouts were over charred leaving little of the hearts to eat and carry flavor. The tenderloin grill marks were saturated with ash and debris. This makes me question the frequency of grill cleaning and interrupts flavors. The vegetables carried a texture similar to Steam Fresh vegetables with little to no seasoning. Unfortunately, our particular server came across as “inconvenienced” that we were there, with no greeting and introduction. All meals came out at different times as well.
