Our server was excellent. He was knowledgeable and friendly but not at all intrusive. And he kept my water glass filled! The menu selection wasn’t as extensive as it could have been but all of the choices sounded great. We ordered a flatbread, the seafood special for that night, and split a dessert. Each dish looked fantastic. The taste didn’t disappoint, with a very appealing flavor profile and great cook.

First time dining at Branchwater, and I was not disappointed! I had heard good things about the place, so I was expecting good food but my expectations were surpassed. Everything we ordered was delicious! The brussel sprout appetizer was perfectLyft cooked and crispy on the outside with nice thick bacon. The goat cheese was also spectacular. The toast points that came with it were just the right amount of crispy and salty. Finally, the scallops definitely did not disappoint. I’ll definitely be coming back!

Good was average, nothing great or special. Service was very good. Very noisy inside, making it hard to carry on a conversation. The food was over priced. Could have had much better food at a less expense for sure

The food was AMAZING. We live 2 miles away and hadn’t been there in a couple of years. With the rainstorm we decided to stay local on a Saturday night instead of going to the city....we were so happy we did! Every detail of the meal and dessert was well constructed and on-point.

The food was very good, service was good, booth was tight and dining room was loud. I dine at high end places on a regular basis and felt the overall bill was 15-20% too high. Just my opinion.

Bon Appetit..... this is a "must go" restaurant in Cumming! If you are looking for fabulous food, great wine, stellar service, in a lively environment, then this is the place to dine. I have lost count of how many times we have dined here, and never, ever been disappointed. From the always diverse and tasty appetizers to the ever-changing, seasonal entrees to desserts, you will find something that your taste buds will fall in love with. Or you can be like us who usually choose the same thing over and over again. The best part is, this attentive staff become your friends, know what you want from the bar, and within minutes it is table-ready. Nothing but a rave review for Branchwater.

Took my girlfriend there Saturday evening. Noise in the main dining room was deafening. Either bad acoustics or too many tables but either way made for a situation where we literally could not hear each other at the same table. I mentioned this to the server who agreed with me and we moved over to the bar for dinner but within five minutes that was just as bad. I dine out often and rarely complain but this made for a very unpleasant experience despite the food which was very good. If I'm in a bar or sports pub I understand that this happens but in a better restaurant where you are paying $25-30 per entry it was disappointing.

Having dined at many nice restaurants with comparable pricing, the food and overall experience was disappointing. The steak I had was as very average. It’s possible that the remote nature of the restaurant makes it a viable option due it’s accessibility to folks living in the area... I’m not sure we will return.

We had three diners for early New Year's Eve dinner. One had steak, one scallops, and one shrimp/pasta. The food was excellent. We also had the crispy brussel sprouts appetizer with maple glaze. That alone was worth the trip out. The wait staff was very attentive keeping our drinks full and our food served at the proper interval. Only complaint was, after making a reservation, we were seated in the bar and near the kitchen so it was very loud. But, it was New Year's Eve so I am sure they were using every space available. This was not our first time here and we have enjoyed it thoroughly each time.

We’ve been twice before and liked it. This time was very different. Slow service, food was not cooked through and had to be sent back. Arrive at 6:15 and left at 8:00 due to slow service despite literally being the only table there (in our large section) at 6:15. It took 10 min just to see a server and we even had a reservation. We will not be returning. There are too many other good options nearby at that price point to put up with poor service and food.

My immediate family was together for the Holidays- a rare occurrence- and we chose Branchwater. Expecting to eat in the dining room, we were put in the bar. We made our reservation through Open Table and were on time. There was a group that was very loud seated at the bar creating noise that was bothersome at times. Our server was also the bartender who, to her credit, was clearly doing the best she could but could not be dedicated alone to the tables she served. The food was very good but the portions for the beef dishes ordered were very small for the price. I was disappointed with the experience.

The hostess was terrific. When I made my reservation I mentioned this was a date. They asked if I would like them to purchase flowers for the table. They did a great job with that and the table was nice.

The food was really good, especially for the price.

The table service was very poor. That became a bit of a joke during our date.

All in all, we had a good time. I wish they would do something about their food service and table service. That can be fixed.

Food was good, not great. We had the ribeye with potatoes au gratin and broccoli. Added the salad with chicken. Honestly it was good but really not unique nor great.

The location is perfect and I recommend you skip over to Cinco rooftop for live music afterwards.
