Jordan was great, food was excellent as always. Staff always so friendly, we love this place!
Always great food!
Great local dining with great bar atmosphere and weekend entertainment
Party of eight for dinner Saturday night before Father’s Day. Everyone had a great time. Two significant negatives. First extremely loud. Second should take the crab cakes off the menu or completely upgrade the dish. All other dishes were great.
I took my fiancé here to celebrate his birthday. We made reservations and when asked the occasion, I mentioned that it was his 30th birthday. I was expecting a free drink, appetizer, or dessert...something to celebrate since I made a “special occasion reservation.” Aside from that- the food and service was fantastic and we enjoyed it.
Excellent food. I had the grouper special and my wife had the hanger steak. Grouper was cooked nicely and very flavorful.
My wife’s banger steak was seasoned nicely. Great flavor. Desserts were tasty. I had the key lime and my wife had the crepe brûlée.
Our waitress, Jeanie, was outstanding and made sure that everything was just right for our birthday celebration. We had a wonderful time, and the food was fantastic!
Great food and service!
As always, food and service were very good.
When paying $20-30 for nice meal it needs to be at least as good as what I can cook at home. This wasn't. Portions were small (Salmon Dijon). Seasoning was ok but not something I would order again. This was our 3 experience at Branchwater & the first two were very good. The menu has changed & choices seemed limited to us.
Branchwater was a great place. The food was exceptional and the service outstanding. Our waitress Katie mad us feel right at home. We will definitely go back if we relocate here. Thank you Branchwater!
The service was fine no troubles there. The food was seriously lacking. I had the Ahi tuna the seasoning was way over done on the tuna and was extremely salty, tasted like the lid fell off the salt shaker in the kitchen. The sesame noodles had way to much oil on them, so I had to scrap the seasoning off the tuna to make it edible. My husband’s meal was the short ribs, he said the best thing in his plate was the green beans. The short ribs tasted liked they had been cooked the day before then microwaved. He also said the Mac & Cheese tasted like it came out of a pouch that had been microwaved also. He came home not feeling the best I guess the food did not agree with him.
We were asked if we would like a dessert, however we said no as they didn’t sound all that great. Overall not a real good experience. Our server was fine but had a bit much perfume on, it wasn’t a very pleasant fragrance. I hate writing bad reviews, because it could have been an off night for the kitchen, but honestly we will not go back.
The noise level on the patio was so loud it was hard to have a conversation.
Our waiter was really sweaty, not attractive when serving food.
Great food and excellent service
Excellent food and very pleasant staff. Great patio was a plus!
Food was greasy and nothing special, waiter was preoccupied didn’t get much attention!
Great local spot. Dinner was great, steaks were much better than expected. Daughter loved the shrimp and grits and Brussel sprouts appetizer was great.
Mothers Day bust! $40.00 per adult - 20 mins late sitting us, no silverware or drinks, dry biscuits and gravy, under cooked bacon and the rest was just blah... waste of time and money!
I went last year for brunch and the food was exceptional and had a great variety. This year the food wasn’t as good. They were also clearly short handed with staff.
Best brunch in the area ... over the top fried chicken!
I would not recommend Branchwater for their Mother's Day brunch. I have not tried it for dinner or any other special occasion, so I cannot comment on that. The cost was extremely high, and while I knew that going in, $40 per adult carries some expectations. Namely that the place will be ready to go when you arrive. My 10AM reservation had us waiting for the staff to finish bringing out food to the buffet line/bar. I also expect that coffee/tea/soda will be free, they were not. While our server was extremely friendly, for that price I also expect that I won't have to ask for refills of coffee, or water. In fact, I didn't ask, and neither were refilled. All other requests were handled, however, with no issues, but since we were paying by the cup, I would expect that. I would love to try Branchwater for a regular dinner service, but I will not be back for Mother's Day Brunch.
Great! Very disappointed that the ginger beer in the mule had gluten, but glad I asked and delighted with the quick research!
Made from scratch dishes combined with excellent service. This is a great place to visit. The noise was a little high but it was due to a couple of really large groups. It didn’t take away from our experience.
Food was amazing...as always! Sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather. A great adult dinner place!
As always, Branchwater provides a full atmosphere with amazing food!
After hearing great reviews from friends, our family decided to give Branchwater a try for my wife's birthday. In short, the food was fantastic, especially given the 3 vastly different tastes represented at my table. The roasted Brussels sprouts were legendary, the calamari fabulous, the hanger steak was superb, my son's hamburger was cooked to perfection, and my wife's salmon was delicious.
As if food wasn't the primary reason for recommending a restaurant, I have to add that our server Lori was exceptional. Patient, attentive, great recommendations, personable and went the extra mile to make my wife feel pampered on her birthday. There was also a wonderful hostess named Melania that popped by frequently to check on us, my only issue with her being she wouldn't succumb to my charm and share the Brussels sprouts recipe!
My husband and I came in for our anniversary, and everything was amazing! The salmon and ahi tuna are delicious, and the cheesecake is incredible. Lori went above and beyond to give us the best experience, and we had a blast with her as our server! We’ll definitely be back soon :)
Food was excellent. So was server Laurie! This is a great restaurant for food and service.
Food is consistently very good and service awesome! Ask for Lori on the waitstaff-she’s great!
Great food. The dining area light is too bright. Kind of cafeteria like.
We were celebrating our anniversary . The food was spectacular . The waitress was great . We had a corner booth in the bar which seemed tucked away but it was a little loud . That was my only complaint . But overall everything was great and we will be back !
We have eaten here several times in fact second time this week This was my wife’s birthday They
are always accommodating and asked them to
make a special appetizer not on the menu and it
was no problem for them service was outstanding
and the meals excellent
We always have a great experience at branchwater. Service is great, food is fantastic and comes out piping hot. Love the brussel sprouts!
Bleh. Overrated. We went to Branchwater for a recent birthday celebration. And I wasn't very impressed. The drinks are way over-priced. While the food was competent, it wasn't as good as other restaurants that are half the price. Unless your going out with a group and want to impress with fine surroundings and rustic wooden ambiance, save some money and stick with the places you know. I don't think we'll go back.
We had a fabulous time! Delicious cocktails and dinner. Nice quiet table in the corner was very appreciated.
Table was ready when we arrived. Food and cocktails were excellent! Staff was very friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be back!
I was "googling" for Branch and Barrel and ended up at Branchwater. I had no idea both were the brainchild of Chef Todd Hogan. What a fantastic find!!! Food was fabulous, service by our waitress, Julie was phenomenal, attentive and funny. The live music was unexpected, just the right volume and quite the right atmosphere for a great Saturday night out in the suburbs! The Brussels sprouts alone will bring me back time and time again and that was just the appetizer. Well worth the trip to Vickery.
Went there with party of 6 after my daughter’s school play. Brian was our waiter and he was very attentive, respectful and very good at his job. The food was excellent as were the cocktails! Love the wine selection too, you can’t go wrong with Branchwater!
Loved the fish special but not the pickled vegetables
