The burgers were great and the sweet potato fries are amazing with the maple dipping sauce. The only problem we had was the noise level and they gave one of our guests thousand island instead of the maple sauce. When we pointed it out - they brought the maple sauce but by then the fries were gone. We ordered a side for them to take home. Would have been nice if they had brought a few sweet potato fries out with the sauce but not a huge deal.

Opentable allowed me to make a reservation on a day that the restaurant was not open for service. Double check if the resturant is open prior to making the drive. Therefore, I could not make an accurate review.

I made a reservation for dinner on Easter Sunday. As they had times available on Opentable, I assumed they were open. We arrived and they were not open. I was not able to cancel the reservation on the Opentable app due to a technical problem with the app.

North Branch advertises itself as a Burger & Pizza restaurant but it is much more...The Best Ribs in the area, as well as the Grilled Salmon! The milkshakes are Huge! The waitstaff is attentive and don't rush.

Service and environment were both pretty good. Food was mediocre. Price was high for what we got. Over $15 for mac and cheese is pushing the limit in my book, but that's what my kids wanted. Pulled pork didn't have much flavor. Thin crust pizza was drowning in sauce and I'm not sure what type of cheese they used, but it didn't taste like mozzarella. Overall, there are several other restaurants I would chose in the area if I am going to spend $100 on dinner to feed a family of 5.

Food was really good. The restaurant did not honor our reservation and ended up seating us about 20 minutes after our reservation was scheduled. Hostess was not nice about it. Once we were seated, we had a great experience!

North Branch is always busy and was especially so last Friday evening. We had reservations and still had to wait. Food was very good and each of us (4) had something different and all served at once and all orders correct and hot!!!

Overall North Branch has gotten much better over the past year. I don't know whether there is new ownership or new management, but the food and the service have been consistently good lately, which had not been the case in the past.
