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.

    Poor service. I’m guessing maybe because we were there with our child? We ordered two steaks…. Not prime quality at all. Not cooked correctly at all. This place is not a “steakhouse”.

    This was our first time at Brandywine Prime and it was recommended to us by a friend. It was very low key, no one was running around and the servers were very calm and relaxed. The food was outstanding and the prices very reasonable for what they delivered. I would highly recommend this place!

    As usual, we began our evening at the bar. Cocktails and service was superb! The staff is courteous and humorous! Later we were seated and served by Chris. Our food was wonderful-prepared extremely well. My wife didn’t care for the accompanying cold sauce for her halibut; however, the fish was outstanding! We tried a new dessert—the banana cream tart. It was a failure —the cream was gelatinous. Absolutely the first time we didn’t like something! We look forward to our next visit!

    The steak and salad were well prepared. The prices though are way too high for the same meal I could get at a Texas Roadhouse restaurant or similar. $140 for two salads, two steaks, no beverages, is a little steep. $170 with tip. Not something I will do often.

    The clam chowder was excellent, the best I ever had. Unfortunately, I was there anticipating their steak to be the phenomenon. Their signature dry aged cowboy ribeye ($87) was thin, dry and very tough to cut through even cooked@ medium. Same with their 8oz fillet. Service was good but the main course was not impressive at all for what’s considered to be high end. Very disappointed for a first visit which won’t lead us to a second as a repeat customer. Steak is supposed to be the specialty here but wasn’t. A $30 Texas Roadhouse ribeye is much better at 2/3 less! Or, For another $13, A 42oz Seven Stars Inn aged prime rib would have been worth the trip. I truly hate giving a bad review. Unfortunately after spending nearly $300 for 2 people (WITHOUT cocktails!) to walk away so disappointed, I just had to say something. We can rarely afford to spend this kind of money on an evening out. Money we can never get back so we must bitterly move on! Think about that-

    Followed up on a social media special - ate like kings in the bar. Brandywine Prime just has a great vibe. Craft cocktails and top notch wait professionals complete the experience. Whether you go high-end white linen table cloth and wagyu beef, or sit at a high top with a cold beer and a cheeseburger - you won't be disappointed.

    Service was great…however for the price I didn’t think the steak was anything special. In fact, my fathers was pretty fatty and I felt like mine didn’t have much flavor. The bacon fat mushrooms were sliced so small you could barely taste them with the steak. I just wasn’t impressed with the food at all.

    My wife and I enjoyed a delightful dinner At Brandywine Prime on a pleasant evening on their outdoor patio. Everything from our drinks through a shared dessert was excellent, especially our steaks - prime fillet for her and a NY strip for me. We even had enough left over for lunch the next day. A very satisfying experience.

Delicious and prepared with care, it is not too many flavors all together. It is just superbly cooked gourmet food that tastes oh so good!!

    Buyer Beware – Poor Waiter Service, Duplicate Credit Card Charges If you go to Brandywine Prime, be very aware that waiter service has declined measurably and be sure to check your credit/debit account for incorrect and/or duplicate card charges. The owner will not do anything to reverse incorrect and/or duplicate charges to your card – you will have to contact your bank to reverse via their fraudulent charge process. As for waiter service, our waiter (older male waiter) gave us the appetizer at the same time the entrée was served, left empty drink glasses after bringing fresh drinks, forgot to order the entrée side dish of mushrooms, and lacked minimum attentiveness. To add insult to a very sub-par dining experience at what used to be a fine establishment, the waiter submitted a different tip amount (higher amount than specified) than what was written on the bill. Then, as if that was not bad enough, this establishment submitted two duplicate diner charges. Despite one week of efforts to get management to resolve, the owner turned a deaf ear and failed to do anything. So if you go – buyer beware and check your credit/debit card right away for higher tip amounts and/or duplicate diner charges!
