Brandywine Prime

$31 to $50
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.

Inventive cocktail menu, the salads were perfect. Steaks cooked to perfection! Great side choices. Too full for dessert, but the menu looked delicious. Our server was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Totally recommend!!

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 very good. The waiters and host were very laid back. There was a lot of stabbing and thumping going on upstairs above us. They must have been setting up for something.

Brandywine Prime never disappoints - we had a safe & lovely dinner outdoors. The cocktail recommendation, Smoke on the Water, was perfect for a summer day. Thank you!

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.

Outstanding meal and service as always. The pork chop special was tender and delicious and the swordfish special was amazing. Shrimp spring rolls are always good. Desserts are better than I remembered from past meals. Warm brownie pie and warm strawberry pie were a perfect finish to the evening. Craig, our waiter was wonderful!

Sadly, Brandywine Prime is past its own “Prime” we were greeted by a waiter that could care a less if we were there or not. He belonged in a diner more so than a higher end restaurant. No smiles, no greeting, just his name and what did we want to drink? Menus has become very limited and lacking in inspiration. The food was poorly seasoned and lacked flavor.
I had put in a special request noting that we were celebrating a Birthday and to please place candle in dessert. The occasion was never acknowledged. 4 people - a little over 100.90 a person, I expected much more especially having frequented quite regularly in the past. We will not be returning.

Excellent experience. Had coworkers in from Boston who are used to fine dining. Brandywine Prime Seafood Chops Chadds Ford Inn the bartender on duty was also a stand out. Suggested one of his special old fashion cocktails. Very nice and potent!

If you like onion soup theirs is really good. Steaks are the best. The only surprise was that the BYOB corkage fee had gone up which was my mistake for not checking

We went to Brandywine Prime on Father's Day with another couple, and all four of us really enjoyed our meal and the quiet atmosphere. The service was excellent as was the food. It was a bit pricey, but well worth it. It was a very good experience.
