the best Calamari ever but my daughter's Gluten Free pizza could have been better, it was stuck to the pan!

A Real Neighborhood Gem
The food is amazingly good for the price. Have had burgers, salmon and steak -- all very, very good.

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.

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.

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.

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.
