Branchwater Ratings and Reviews
We had a wonderful time at branchwater this past weekend. The the food was excellent and the servers were very knowledgeable of their menu and drinks. Julie was one of our servers and she was very attentive. We would be back there again for another date night.
Service was very poor. Did not expect to be seated in the bar / band area since we had reservations. Seemed like they were more interested in getting us out of the restaurant than giving us a good experience. We have been to this restaurant many times and have always been happy with the experience. After this experience, we probably won't return.
It was very busy because it was New Year's Eve but we expected that and didn't mind. Our server was nice and made sure we were happy. My ribeye was over cooked the first time but once it was corrected it was delicious. My husband's ribeye was perfect the first time. Our server and the manager comped us a dessert and took care of our appetizer as well. This was a nice gesture and I appreciate them making things right. Mistakes happen, especially on a super busy night, but they went out of their way to make us happy. We will definitely go again.
The food was great, like really great, and priced ok. Whiskey is waay overpriced. Our server was terrible. She complained about the specials and refused to tell them to us. She complained about the big table she was working near us. She complained about the lack of salt and pepper shakers. She brought us steak knives about 10 minutes after our steaks arrived. We'll go back, but we'll make sure we get another server.
We planned an evening out without the kids prior to celebrating the big holiday season and found Branchwater to have reservations available at the time we wanted to dine. Our server was wonderful and the food was incredible! We will definitely visit again and have already told our friends. What a great restaurant!
My wife and I came to celebrate our anniversary and were very pleased! The food was fantastic and the service was excellent! It was a very enjoyable experience and I would highly recommend Branchwater for a delicious meal and cozy atmosphere! We will definitely be coming back soon!
Everything was terrific at Branchwater — the food, service, atmosphere, we were happy with it all and will put it on our list of repeats. We had a fried wild mushroom appetizer that was very tasty, a lentil, sausage and vegetable soup that was light and with excellent flavor. I had a lobster tail burger/sandwich, which I would definitely order again and my husband had a grilled chicken burger that was very satisfying. The fries are perhaps the best I’ve had in Georgia. The Chardonnay from Monterey I ordered was very drinkable. It was a quiet late Sunday afternoon when we were there, so the bartender waited on us. She was very personable and attentive. It is a chef-owned restaurant, so everything there is handled with pride. Even the condiments are house-made. I would go back in a heartbeat. Go. Just go.
The food choices were awesome and we loved our food! The Brussel sprouts are yummy, but if you are trying to be healthy be aware that they are flash fried before they come out. I suffered later do to the greasiness, but they said next time I could ask that they not do that! All in all it was a great experience. On the down side the specialty drinks weren't all that special.We ordered 1 specialty drink the grapefruit martini which I found was not that good. Our guest ordered a margarita and could not drink it it was so bad but they subbed it out for him so no complaints! The dirty martini was good and the beer choices were sufficient. The food again was great, but be prepared to spend a bit of money! Over $200 for 4 people. I loved the atmosphere it was great for entertaining clients,not stuffy or too fancy. Relaxed evening especially since we ate out on the patio! Worth trying for sure!
The meal was good. We had the tuna, a chicken dish and the pork. The tuna was done perfectly. The directions we got from the Open Table Website were incorrect and took us into a private housing development - so watch out! We were not from the area so we had no idea were we were going.
Food & service very good; would love this place if it were not for the noise level being off the charts...as the place filled up, we could barely hear each other speak. It appears to be a result of the open high ceiling which is visually appealing but makes for just awful acoustics. Unlikely to return solely because it's just uncomfortably loud and really put a damper on our evening and attempted conversation with friends. Really is a shame! 😟
The food was awesome, from the chicken cordon bleu egg rolls to the surf&turf. Prices were very easy on the pocket in comparison with other fine eateries. Only complaint was our waitress, but after speaking with Katie the manager I was told that the next day was her last. She has set me up with free appetizers for my next visit which I look forward to-oh, they have an extensive wine list!
This was not our first time dining at Branchwater but it was definitely not our best experience and unfortunately it appears to be service related. What is unclear is where the breakdown occurred.
The food was tasty and the drinks were spot on, once we received them, but there were long gaps in timing that really dragged the meal down; not what one should expect from Branchwater. I I don't know if the server was having an off day, was over committed or if the bartender was behind, posibbly a combination of the three.
In any event, it left a bad taste in our mouth (pun intended); we may give Branchwater another go but not in the immediate future.
Great Food, Great Service but it is very noisy. The music was turned up very loud, we requested for it to be turned down which they did promptly but then we realized why it was up so loud in the first place. The restaurant is just very noisy and you could hear everyone talking so I think the music was turned up to drown out the conversation noise.
