The Waitress had a mask on but unfortunately it's not going to do any good when it is below your chin

Had a ribeye that was average at best $$$. After I got the steak, had to wait 5 minutes for salt. Had already eaten half the steak. Was not very tended at all.

The food was very enjoyable. We were seated next to a very large party (about 15-20 people). They are extremely loud so my table of 4 couldn’t really hear each other. I was just happy the food was delicious.

I took my husband out to branch water for his valentines gift. I made a reservation days before and was kinda disappointed. I ordered the mixed grill lamb chop, lobster, and filet. My husband had beef with bleu cheese fries. First, the food was tasteless and/or burnt. We asked for medium rare and got almost raw. When asked for it to be cooked a bit more, it came back burnt ! I don’t know if they had a new cook that night or what but it was definitely memorably bad. The asparagus, mashed potatoes, and Cajun chicken rolls were soooo delicious though. I would of ordered just that if I would have known lol. But the service was nice and our server was attentive! I don’t think I’ll go back though.

Food was excellent!! I would advise looking at the menu beforehand because this restaurant is nicer and so they have their sides paired with their entrees and do not have them listed a la carte. We did not ask, however, if certain sides could be substituted. We really enjoyed the mixed grill. The meat could not have been more tender and I'm mystified as to how they were able to cook their enormous asparagus spears to perfection. All of their appetizers sounded delicious- we went with the brussel sprouts (...drool) and the steak skewers and were not disappointed!!

My husband and I went for Valentine's dinner. The first thing to happen was when I made the reservation on Open Table I requested standard seating, not outdoor. The hostess led us to the outdoor patio and told us it was considered standard seating. On the way out, we were told by a different hostess our reservation showed outside seating. So I then proceeded to freeze during our meal as I did not think I would have to wear a coat to eat dinner. Second complaint, no where on their website did it say a set menu, no substitutions or that some items would not be available. We love their pretzel but it was not on the special menu. Third, I ordered scallops that were very much overcooked and very rubbery - that was my main entree and I ate nothing else it was plated with as they are not foods I like to eat. Last complaint, my husband got the mixed grill, and there was barely any lamb, charred steak that was burnt on the outside and fairly pink on the inside, and his lobster tasted very funny. The only highlight of the evening was the dessert (hummingbird cake and chocolate gateaux). It's sad when you pay $130 for a meal and still have to eat something else at home. Very disappointed as this was one of our top picks to go to for good food.

Very impressed. The appetizers were incredible, especially the eggrolls! I would ask for calamari to be extra crispy next time though. Lobster nachos were amazing with a huge helping of lobster! Dinner was amazing and good sizes portions. The “jumbo” crab cakes truly were JUMBO and barely any filler. Desserts were also great. The smores dessert was by far the best. Service was great and drinks were good. The sweet tea here is also amazing. Overall price was decent. Was $270 after tip for 3 adults and 1 child. 3 appetizers, 4 dinners, 4 desserts. Adult beverages and regular.

everything was good except when we walked in ( we had a reservation ), there were chairs still on the top of tables and nothing was set up.

Our server was great and appetizer was good. Except, do not order Scallops. By far the worse tasting scallops ever.

I contacted the restaurant already via messenger and via their website contact form and have not received a reply.
I ordered a rib eye steak medium rare and got
A raw strip steak. The waitress didnt come over for 15 minutes after we were served and I realized what was wrong. No one checked on us, by the time she came back i just wanted to leave and wasnt even hungry anymore .

We were celebrating three occasions and chose Branchwater by recommendation. Our reservation was at 515, we were promptly seated, and waited about 25 min before ever seeing our server, and that was after asking if one could be sent over. There was a table right next to us being served so we were puzzled. They didn’t have my first wine choice so I opted for a second which quickly came out. They had two specials, one of which they were out of entirely by 515. I opted for an alternative as the menu was lacking in variety or adventurous options. My husband got the chicken fried duck which was underwhelming. I had the Chilean sea bass over a risotto with lemon caper sauce. It was extremely over seasoned, the fish was under cooked and risotto was mush loaded with cheese. We did order the goat cheese appetizer which was ok, but there was little to no jalapeño flavor. I guess if we had gotten a steak, we would have been happier, but if it’s a staple on the menu, or a special, you would expect not to be disappointed. Atmosphere was also very odd, we couldn’t relax at all.

The food was good. The wait staff was good. We waited over 30 minutes with a reservation booked over a week in advance, so the initial contact was poor. It was our first visit and I think I’ll try it again because it appears to be a really cool place. I hope they get it right next time.

Our regular weekly date at one of our most popular venues! Outside in the ‘covered’ area. Very noisy group of ladies nearby - Wednesday 1/2 price wine often produces the loud groups.

We met at the bar and the bartender was very quick and courteous. We proceeded to our table afterwards and our server was also very quick and attentive. We ordered the Brussel sprouts and chicken egg rolls and the brussel sprouts shined here. Our party ordered the tuna, salmon and chicken Cesar salad and all were excellent. Great meal and service overall.
