I took my family of six for dinner on a Friday evening. The decor is unique, the prices are VERY reasonable, the food was very good and the service was great!
I really do like meeting friends here for lunch. It is comfortable and the food and service are good to very good. The price is right too and the portion size is generous.
We had made reservations (via phone unfortunately not OpenTables) at a well known restaurant but they had lost it and were unhelpful,rude actually. So while we waited for a table I whipped out my OpenTable app and made a reservation at nearby Beef and Brandy. They could not have been more accommodating. There were 5 of us. We were seated immediately. The noise level was subdued and we could truly talk in normal voices. We were never rushed. We never felt like we had to gobble our food so they could turn over the table. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable and helpful. The food was good,not special but quite good and reasonably priced. I was very impressed with the offerings of the bar concerning mixed drinks and beer. I will return.
I do enjoy my lunches at the Beef and Brandy. Soups, sandwiches, salads are all tasty and plentiful. I often can only eat half of my order and then I take the rest to go. Very friendly staff and I am greeted as I enter. Good prices and value.
The Beef and Brandy is a good place for good food at reasonable prices. The service is good too. I am always greeted in a friendly manner at the door and promptly seated.
Made reservations that evening because we were on our way to see the musical, Wicked. So we decided to have dinner before curtain time. It turned out to be a nice dinner with the seven of us. The waiter was very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious as well. Thank you for everything! We would love to come back again when we're at State Street.
Loved that we got a last minute reservation - made reservations from Rockford, Il about 5 hrs earlier. Excellent location with wide variety on menu. We had the Seafood Chowder, toss salad with blue cheese dressing, Ruben sandwich and the Liver and Onions. Entrees were excellent, salad dressing - large blue cheese crumbles Waitress was sweet, interested in us and seemed honest in her suggestions. Price was excellent. Checked out the kids menu for when we have our grandchildren with us….chicken fingers, pizza, hot chocolate will be appreciated by them. Wasn't crowded. Only downside: hubby had a hard time not watching the game….he was facing the TV…next time we'll sit with me in that seat….but it was a cozy corner L-shaped booth.
We have enjoyed our dining at the Beef and Brandy for breakfast and lunch. We work in the loop so it is good to have a place where you can expect good food and service.
I had made a reservation for 15 people about a day earlier. I was in the area and stopped by the restaurant about 2 hours before we were scheduled to arrive. When I got there the hostess didn't know anything about a reservation saying, "we don't usually take reservations." I explained that I had made the reservation via Open Table. She still looked perplexed but said there shouldn't be a problem accommodating us. She called over the owner who was very nice and gave us a choice to have our group upstairs or down. He also said there wouldn't be a problem if we had a larger group and even let us have a private room. Our group expanded to 24 and while service was slow, they were welcoming and even gave us individual checks.
I go to the Beef and Brandy for breakfast and lunch. The food is reasonably priced and good. The wait staff is very professional and courteous. A good value.
