Steakhouse
Located in the heart of the Brandywine Valley, this modern American steakhouse is a short drive from Philadelphia, the Main Line or Wilmington. The complete redo of the 300 year old Chadds Ford Inn has created an excellent canvas with which to paint. The cuisine is strictly twenty-first century with an emphasis not only top quality cuts of beef, like the 16 ounce Prime Delmonico, but fresh seasonal seafood, like jumbo lump crab and wild salmon. The comfortable bar beckons you in with a Best of Philly burger and a local draft beer. Creative sandwiches, great happy hour specials and great steaks ensure we have something for everyone. Modern finishes to a historic building create an inviting, hip atmosphere that welcomes all-from tourists to business travelers to local families to private events in one of our many rooms.

Always love visiting Brandywine Prime! The staff is professional and friendly. The drinks are crafted cocktails and the food is phenomenal. I especially love the mushroom tart made with Kenneth Square Mushrooms, the spring rolls are divine, and you can never go wrong with any of the steaks. This visit called for indulgence with a special, Waygu strip steak and it was so tender and flavorful. But the chicken, fish, seafood and pasta entrees are just as fantastic. Try to leave room for dessert.

Wonderful food . . . bartender seemed to have an off night as both our cocktails were "undermade", like it was a new person.

We have always been extremely satisfied with every aspect of our dining experience at Brandywine Prime.
The specials and entree accompaniments are always flavorful and, in many cases, unique.
We travel from about an hour north of Brandywine Prime, but we never feel that it is “outside of our dining area “.

The baked potatoes we ordered were both under cooked. This occurred the last time we dined here. The NY strip was a little grisly which wasn’t the standard we were used to. Service was great!

My children said their steaks were amazing which is what you go to a steakhouse for. My husband & I don’t eat steak so we ordered pasta dishes. Both were bland & relatively flavorless however our waiter was amazing & the overall dinning experience was excellent.

We have been dining regularly at Brandywine Prime for several years (as well as other venues) and they are consistently one of the best. Great food, ambience and outstanding service make this one of the treasures of the Brandywine Valley.

We were visiting from out of state and made reservations to be seated outdoors. We were promptly seated and had a wonderful server, Bryan. He was very helpful, prompt, but paced well; very instinctive knowing when to stop and make sure we had what we needed. We started with their mushroom soup and French onion soup. Delicious! Really hit the spot since it was a bit chilly outside. The portions were huge so we took leftovers with us so we would have room for dinner and dessert. They were excellent for lunch the next day. 😊 we both had the filet for main course with the local mushrooms as a side. We also ordered their lobster ravioli (which is a main course) to share. The filet a were cooked perfectly (one medium rare and one medium). Again, we had leftovers...no surprise. 😊 We had the bourbon creme brûlée' for dessert. It was excellent! We saved the biscotti that comes with it and I had it with my morning tea the next day. Loved the food and service! We will definitely return on our next visit north!

I expected the steak to be flavorful and properly cooked. Not. Server was very good but forgot some of the order. Complimentary dessert was a nice touch. I would give it another try. However, overpriced.

This has been one of our favorite restaurants for years. The service and ambience are still top notch. The apps and drinks were fine. However, the entre was a disappointment; all three of us had steak, which is the house specialty. They tout both the quality of the meat, and the special 1400F ovens to prepare it. All three filets were dry (two MR, one Med). None was either especially tender or particularly flavorful. This is an expensive restaurant (steaks $48 -$60, $6 for a plain baked potato, about $100 per person with the average app, drink sides, etc) and that's completely fine...when the food justifies the price. it usually does...it didn't last night.

Service was poor. Dinner was not worth the price. Potato came out stone cold hard. The steak was mediocre. Waiter acted as if he did us a favor by removing the cost of the inedible potato. So disappointed, expected more.

The food was all delicious. Three of us split the gulf shrimp spring rolls for starters and then we each had a different steak cooked to perfection as requested. We split an order of truffle fries, which were heaven in a bowl. Wine list extensive and bartender made a very good margarita; no prepackaged bar mix here. A fine way for old friends to reconnect.

Server not attentive. Had to ask for specials. He provided them but no prices - had to ask. I had a debit card for a purchase we made from a company for $100. Server immediately said it woyuldn't work because they had "old computers". I asked him to try. It worked. Special was pork chop - very good. My wife had chicken - waited refused to substitute one veggie for another. Overall, too much work for dinner.
