    The food and atmosphere was wonderful. Service was good and we were very happy with our choice to have the choice of brunch or lunch. (We ate at 11:30 a.m.). Very nice place.

    We had a wonderful dining experience this evening. After being greeted and seated by Jimmy, Jarah came to our table to open the wine she recommended, it was excellent! We then ordered the Duck onion soup which after having had here once or twice before, bowled us over. We always order it when it’s on the menu. My husband ordered the duck entree and I chose Meg’s Meatloaf Wellington which had a pastry heart on top of the pastry enrobing the most delicious meatloaf. The sauce was delicious without overpowering the dish and the roasted vegetables and puréed parsnips (?) were mouthwatering. My husband’s duck was cooked to order and just right with a side of sauce that was smooth and delicious, I want to say there was mango in there, (but I’m not a professional) and some crispy baby potatoes and roasted vegetables. Compliments to Chef, and to our lovely server Jarah! Thanks for making our dinner out a special occasion!

    What a lovely evening at Bramble and Brine. We were warmly welcomed by David and seated at our favorite table. After choosing our wine we decided on the Escargot for our appetizer, which never disappoints. We then ordered the Braised pork shank and the crab cake entrees which were amazing! The staff is very careful to avoid cross contamination as my husband has Celiac and they keep a file on him for when we visit, which is often! Thank you David, Jimmy, Louis, and all the great folks at Bramble and Brine for another wonderful dining experience!

    We went to Bramble and Brine tonight and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Not only was the food and atmosphere exquisite but what stood out to us the most was our server, David. He exuded grace and efficiency creating an unforgettable dining experience. We will not only be coming back for the food, but especially for David. (And of course Mr.buttons! 🦜) thank you David!

    We chose Bramble & Brine at the Buttery for a special occasion dinner and loved it. We chose a beet and goat cheese salad, a Caesar salad, the Lobster Gnocchi and Meatloaf Wellington, and all were fantastic! The peanut butter pie at dessert was also outstanding. We will definitely dine again!

    Our dining experience was wonderful. We both ordered the fish special and it was perfectly prepared and presented, including the accompaniments. The caesar salad and drinks were excellent. We dined on a Friday evening, on the earlier side, and the atmosphere was pleasant, not too crowded or noisy even though the porch area where we were seated was mostly full. The service was outstanding and when we finished our meal and informed our waiter we needed to leave promptly to attend a concert he efficiently brought out check. This was our first time dining at Bramble and Brine and we can hardly wait to go again.

    Just like all of the other Megan Collective restaurants it was exceptional as expected. We’ve been multiple times and it’s always great. There’s really only one other restaurant that rivals B&B in Lewes and you can’t go wrong choosing either one.

    We had so looked forward to visting the restaurant and chose Valentine's Day for a special treat along with another couple. We were a little surprised at their price point for Starters ... a soup was $20 for an example. We were anticipating some very good entrees considering their across the board pricing was $44 except for two items that were listed at MP. The old Buttery, now Bramble & Brine is a wonderful and inviting venue but that could not compensate in any way for the overpriced and so very poor food offerings that we ordered. Cocktails & wine were also very with a bottle of average wine starting at $58. We wanted to enjoy this lovely treat but it was truly impossible since dinner for a couple was over $200 per couple plus a generous tip to our server who had no control over poor food. We would never consider going back.

    The food here is excellently prepared. The ambiance is quaint and the service is excellent. The owner is on hand showing her commitment to the business and customers satisfaction. My only reservation is that the portion sizes are very modest for the price. You are paying for preparation and taste, not quantity so be aware of that.

    Wonderful evening, our server David was a total professional, even with the busy night of Valentine’s Day, he was attentive, no rushing and helpful with drinks and the menu. The whole staff was hustling but in a calm manner, busy, but no one acting crazy running around. Top notch food and service. Tables a little close together but actually really couldn’t hear the people on either side, so no issue. Lovely singer that evening, Love the decor and vibe. Great Valentine’s Day dinner

    My wife and I went there for my birthday dinner. We had a cocktail in the small but very comfortable bar before dinner. The Old Old Fashion was quite good, For dinner the scallops were well done and very well cleaned which isn't always the case in other places. Service was great. A bit pricey but well worth it for a special occasion

    We went for breakfast for my husband's birthday and enjoyed an incredible meal. Kiss was our server and she was kind and attentive, very knowledgeable about the menu. We enjoyed every dish as you could tell it was fresh and well prepared. I absolutely enjoyed the coffee and my favorite was the dessert we had after breakfast...yes dessert after breakfast. We all had something different and they were all equally delicious....and not to mention the owner graced us with her presence and she is lovely!
