Steakhouse
Top Tags:
  • Special Occasion
  • Good for Anniversaries
  • Good for a Date
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 10 oz. barrel cut ribeye, but fresh seasonal seafood, like soft-shell crabs and wild salmon. The comfortable bar beckons you in with a Best of Philly burger, ahi tuna club and a local draft beer. Creative sandwiches, great happy hour specials and great steaks ensure we have something for everyone. Modern finishes to an 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.

Best meal we've had in a long time. Melt-in-your-mouth filet mignon. Save room for the chocolate caramel pecan tart. Very friendly staff. Very professional operation but with humor and warmth. No minuses. Worth every penny.

My husband and I love going to Brandywine Prime for Brunch. The food is delicious, the service is great and it's such a relaxing way to enjoy a Sunday.

I had the Spring Quiche and it was delicious. The desserts are just wonderful. I highly recommend.

My wife and I and 3 of our friends thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday brunch. What a nice combination of a communal spread as well as an individual entree. I had the eggs benedict and they were just wonderful. My friend raved about the fried chicken and waffles. The best were the multitude of desserts. I am not a dessert eater so I enjoyed a nice glass of wine. My wife and friends munched on the various selections of cakes, cookies and according to everyone the best was the apple crisp or deep dish pie. At a price that was about $30 a person we just enjoyed it.

Service was prompt and the energy level was perfect. It was a good crowd enjoying conversations and laughter but not ear drum rattling loud nor funereal calm.

Salads were good, and my wife's swordfish was tasty, but the temperature of the two Filets that my son and I had were "cool". They were cooked appropraitely (Medium), but were not hot when they arrved at the table. Being a "Steak Place" you'd think they would get that right! Disappointed.

Mouthwatering food and outstanding service. Their pear martini is delicious and definitely a favorite. The salad specialty of the evening was a mango blend that had the perfect lite dressing to compliment the spring greens. The mushroom tart apetizer was perfectly sized for 2 people. A delicious crust compliments the softly sautéed mushrooms that are blended with a delectable triple cream brie. Truly an amazing combination. An 8oz. center cut filet mignon is perfectly proportioned and cooked to melt in your mouth deliciousness. This is definitely a new favorite restaurant for us!

Excellent dining, drinks and wines. Comfortable tables and chairs. Clean and user friendly toilet facilities. While we did not use the bar room, we did walk through it both to and back from our dining area; it was crowded and there was an obviously pleased clientele in attendance.
We enjoyed our entrees - short ribs, in one case, and rib-eye in the other, followed followed up by a simple plate of ice cream for dessert.

We look forward to a return visit.

Regards,

Margie & Fred

Brandywine Prime is our go-to for reliably excellent food. From start to finish, dinner there is always without complaint. I do wish they would put the wagyu on their regular menu because I’m always sad when we are there and it’s not a special, but that’s pretty rare so I can’t complain. That steak is exceptional and worth the price. One of the main reasons that this restaurant is our favorite is Michael, the most knowledgeable, professional server we have ever come across. He really makes the experience at Brandywine Prime stand out for us.

Had been to Brandywine Prime on several occasions. It had always been superb. This time it was average. The prices jumped and the quality went down. Not a good combination. The Cowboy Prime Ribeye was on the old menu for $48. It was now a special for $68. They also added choice cuts for what used to be prime prices. We were all disappointed!

This restaurant needs to step up it's game to meet it's ambitious pricing ($200 incl tax and tip for three courses and beverages for two). The food was very good but not great. The service was lackluster from the disinterested host, to the rude runner, and the overly casual and inattentive server. The atmosphere is lovely but we couldn't fully appreciate it as we felt rushed out of the restaurant after slightly less than two hours at our table. It was a holiday (Easter Sunday) but a restaurant shouldn't accept 7pm reservations if they intend to turn the lights out at 9pm. I gave Brandywine Prime an average rating because the food was pretty good but I wouldn't recommend it and the experience left a bad taste in my mouth.

At no fault of the restaurant, but when I made the reservation I didn't realize that on Easter Sunday they were only serving brunch from 10-3pm. We enjoyed the meal but was looking forward to more selection.

We recently had dinner there along with our 7yo son. We were craving a great steak but having just arrived home after a long trip, we weren’t exactly dressed or up for a fancy steakhouse. We had a fabulous meal, the service was terrific, and while I wouldn’t say this is a family-friendly place (its closer to fine dining than that), they were incredibly accommodating and attentive to my son. Nice selection of kid friendly meals too. Food is excellent, variety is plentiful. Can’t wait to go back.

We came for a special occasion with family. We utilized their VERY reasonable corkage fee to bring some top wine with us, which was good because their selection (at least by the glass) was lacking. The food was delicious, plentiful, and they had something perfect for everyone in our party (who can be picky). The service was a little less than desirable - the waiter passed our table numerous times without so much as glancing over to see if we needed anything and took quite a while to see us in the first place. The ambiance was nice and the noise level tolerable. There is a lot of overhead noise from the upper floor which I was not expecting, although was not a problem given the otherwise gentle noise level below. All in all, I would recommend it for the food alone, which is worth the drive!

We were with the kids and all of us had a great meal. My daughters steak was great. My son loved his burger and my wife and I had the fish. While the vibe was fine to have the kids with us this place shines on date night. Looking forward to coming back.

I'm never disappointed at Brandywine Prime. The food and service are always excellent, and the waiters are very happy to lend advice and offer a "taste" when considering a wine that I'm not familiar with. This visit didn't disappoint. My friend and I both had the barrel cut ribeye (a steak I've never had before) and it was delicious. I will order it again, and this is coming from someone who swears there's no steak like a NY strip! It's a bit expensive (that's why I only give value 4 stars instead of 5), but a good steakhouse usually is. My dear mother always told me "you get what you pay for", and Brandywine Prime is worth every penny.

My wife and I were looking to entertain some friends from out-of-town (Washington D.C.) for dinner. BP got us a table; even though it was St. Paddy's Day, on short notice. As always, the food was delicious and the service was great. One of our friends has Celiac's Disease & BP's menu was able to accommodate her, as well. I recommend this place all the time, especially if you are looking for a great steak! We weren't disappointed. Thank you Brandywine Prime!

We had a gift card for Brandywine Prime so we decided to eat on a Friday during lent. Bad idea, the scallops I got were ok, not a good choice since this place is know for meat! The salad was amazing! We also got two sides, baked and mashed potato. Mashed was very good but the baked potato was dry and bland and for $6 not a good value. I make better baked potatoes at home! I had a couple of glasses of wine and my daughter ordered the salmon which was very good. We got carrot cake and a martini (expresso) for dessert. The bill $126. We knew it would cost a lot, but unless you are eating the filet, I wouldn't recommend eating there. Michael our server was outstanding. Overall a good experience.
