I took my nephew for his birthday. I had requested a booth but since no one was moving, we opted for a table. We were by another celebration which was really loud and a booth opened about 5 minutes after we were seated so we moved and all was well. We both had burgers which were both cooked perfectly and for a b-day dessert, they brought my nephew a delicious piece of chocolate cake. Service was good and we will return.

SO glad we tried North Branch! Not only did we have a great meal for this meal - but... we were having a "staycation" down the road... and while we live 10 minutes away - had never tried it before... we came 3 meals in a row! The staff is so friendly and all go above and beyond to ensure you have a great experience. We will be back soon - what a great place!

Some of the best burgers anywhere. Lots of other excellent unhealthy food. Very good beer selection. If they could just eliminate kids, the place would be perfect! Just joking, sort of. It's a good family place that I would absolutely love if the atmosphere were more adult and edgy, which is probably too much to ask in this location.

Salads are amazing!! The waiter brought a huge piece of cake with whipped cream for the birthday we were celebrating The half-off bottles of wine in Tuesdays, is a great touch!!

This is a great neighborhood bar/restaurant. The salmon entree is GREAT, but everything we've tried is very good. Drinks are a little "dear" in price, but not terrible.

There was a good selection of draft beers, especially IPA. My salmon entree was delicious and vegetables cooked perfectly al dente!

We ordered a deep dish pizza, since we saw it at a neighboring table and it looked good.
It included cheese, tomato and sausage which was just OK. Also ordered a side salad which was basically lettuce and not much else. It's definitely NOT Lou Malnati's.
We'll have hamburgers next time.

North Branch is very definitely a neighborhood gem -- very noisy, very family oriented, very casual. However, the food is surprisingly good.

I ordered a salad, not realizing it had bacon in it. When I started to eat it, and noticed that there was bacon, I mentioned to the waiter that I couldn't eat it, he immediately took it back & replaced it; no charge! Great service!

Clearly a favorite of the locales & w/ good reason. Very appealing dishes, good portions but not outrageous & just truly friendly & attentive waitstaff. Did NOT expect to find a flavorful salmon dish @ a pizza place :)
