Whether you are out for a drive in the country or planning a destination meal, this spot is a great place to be. The limited menu is incredible (I recommend the cheese plate to start), the atmosphere calming and conducive to conversation, and the service exceptional (both friendly and attentive).

Also they produce some of the best gin variations I have had - and I am a gin appreciator. So, go, eat, taste the spirits and take home a few bottles.

2nd time at Brandywine Bistro. They are amazing! My new regular hangout for sure. Signature cocktails were delicious. Menu great selections and food was perfect each visit. Love that the menu changes regularly and give us the opportunity to try new things each time. Hands down the desserts are most incredible and my favorite ending to a perfect evening

I love the old renovated barn. The food was very good and the portions were just right. Cocktails were good too. Menu could be longer but that is a minor thing.

Fantastic little place. Only 2 main entrees beside burgers and stuff but excellent and they change it weekly. Gin drinks were unique and fun. Ambience was nice being in a restored barn which keeps its rustic charm. Nice live music on the weekend. Would highly recommend this place.

From start to finish our visit was phenomenal. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable, checked in but didn’t hover, and all around pleasant. The food was outstanding! Even our drinks were phenomenal. We loved the atmosphere. Brandywine Branch Bistro is my new favorite place to go out to eat. We went for Valentine’s Day, our first date in a year (kids), and everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us relax and enjoy some much needed time away!

We have been dropping in for meals since the day Brandywine Bistro first opened. We love the casual ambiance and their small plates. Service is never rushed and their signature drinks are worth trying.

The Chilean Sea Bass was exquisite. Tables were well spaced, seating is limited, so recommend reservations. It’s a little chilly (it is January), and they provided light blankets you could use if needed. All in all, a wonderful experience. We even caught some live music. Just a great night.

The gin is great and the drinks were good, but service was terrible. We sat for 20 minutes or so before someone - not even our server- came to take our drink order.

Server was not well versed on menu. We had no idea what the third of the trio of empanadas was...even after we asked her to repeat what she said. And when asked what the duck melt was like, she stated that it was sort of like the empanadas. After receiving our food, we realized she meant....triangular. (it was sort of an underwhelming pita-dilla.) At the end if the night we tallied they were out of one of the gins and 2 of 4 desserts.

The bourbon mushrooms were delicious.
