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.

I usually love eating here, but my fish special was just so so and served luke warm…. Husband loved his steak and the special salad was yummy. I’ll stick with the salmon next time I go.

You cannot find better steaks in the Brandywine Valley than Brandywine Prime. They are always perfectly prepared, presentation is very appealing, and service is top-notch. We love the interior of the bar and dining area as well. We are never disappointed.

We had another excellent meal at Brandywine Prime, as has become the norm here. My succulent rib eye was beautifully cooked and my wife’s butternut squash and pumpkin ravioli was so tasty that I asked her for a second bite! Portions are always large, so we had enough to enjoy at home. Drinks and service were also great.

Very comfortable table. Great old world tavern-style vibe. Pear Martini is a must! Excellent wine list. My prime strip steak was cooked spot-on medium rare. Only complaint is that beef prices have soared. Thanks, Joe Biden.

The Best New Year’s Dinner!! Jason and Michael cooked an outstanding meal! Everything complemented the several course dinner. The wine additions worked perfectly. The kitchen and our server spaced out the evening perfectly.
Our compliments to everyone for a wonderful evening!!

Another great experience at BP- the food from the New Years Eve menu was excellent and they went above and beyond to allow us to dine outside near the fire and heaters- it was 51 degrees out! The service was very good, even though was very busy inside for NYE. Always making memories here and the staff is always looking to go the extra mile for customers!

Was hoping to order New Year’s Eve dinner menu but was told you have to order in advance. When I made reservations in Opentable, there was no option to choose the menu. This was disappointing and will not come back to this restaurant.

I have been in the past for bar food and drinks. Also for brunch. Those were good.
But the special New Year's Eve menu was only fair at best and the way courses were served was poor. I will not go for fine dining again. I have sent an email to restaurant directly on the details but haven't received a reply yet.

Sat at the bar watching football, chatting with bartender Alex and enjoying a terrific dinner. The three cheeses for openers was fantastic - so much we had to take some home in a box. Wife had the hamburger while I had the pork chop. the food was excellent as was the service. All in all, a very enjoyable evening.

I dined at Brandywine Prime in late Dec 2021 with six good friends. It was the first time there for all of us. The waiter ignored one friend’s request to treat the 5 others at our table to a first round of drinks. He specifically asked if she wanted a separate bill for this snd she very specifically said yes. Instead the cost of those drinks was just added onto our final meal tab. He also told us we couldn’t have 6 separate invoices for our individual meals. Instead, at the end of the meal he handed one of us a tab for all 6 and left us to split it equally. We reluctantly handed over six credit cards. When he brought us our 6 split receipts to sign, he only left us with one pen, requiring us to pass that single pen around the table from person to person. He also forgot to bring one friend’s dinner. Everyone else was served at the same time. He realized his mistake a few minutes later and finally placed the order. This one friend waited 5-6 minutes for her meal. And to be clear, this was a weekday and the restaurant was NOT busy. The waiter also reached across right in front of my face twice to fill my water glass rather than reaching from behind me. Very poor service on multiple levels. The meal I ordered was expensive and the meat was overdone and tough. I didn’t finish it. All meals on the menu consisted of a main entree only. The choices were all expensive and if we wanted a side dish like a potato or a vegetable, that was an extra charge. To add insult to injury, because we were billed as a group, the tab included an automatic 20% gratuity. We all agreed the waiter absolutely did NOT deserve such a large tip but it seemed we were stuck with it. Will I ever go back to Brandywine Prime? NEVER EVER IN A MILLION YEARS.

Our enthused, attentive and knowledgeable server (Craig) helped offset the disappointing experience of eating a pricey meal that was rather sub-par. The swordfish special and the New York strip steak were dry and bland.

We came when the restaurant first opened at 4:30 so it was quiet. The waiter was very attentive and efficient. I found the food to be expensive for the quality and quantity. The sword fish for $40 was small but adequate. The salad was gritty which means to me it was not cleaned properly. Again, the service and waiter were spot on.
