About Brandywine Prime
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.

Brandywine Prime Ratings and Reviews
I can’t say a negative thing about this restaurant.
We made reservations for 2 people but called to ask if we could bump it up to 4 at the last minute. No problem. Our waitstaff was very knowledgeable, friendly and courteous. Best scallops I’ve ever eaten, and I am a snob when it comes to them.
All in all, BRAVO!!!!
We've been to Brandywine Prime before and we came back for our anniversary. It was a great experience. The service was excellent and our server knew everything about the menu. The food is always excellent and we really enjoy the Wyeth paintings. It's worth a trip if you've never been.
We had dinner at Brandywine Prime after getting engaged on our 4-year dating anniversary. It was perfect. The food was amazing and the wine was fantastic. We had 3 different types of oysters, scallops, and a NY strip, and creme brûlée for dessert. Our server (Mark) was very friendly and attentive. He could tell it was a special occasion so he offered to take some pictures for us and even brought us out some complimentary champagne. Most expensive meal we’ve ever had, but so worth it. We hope to go back every year to celebrate. The food was way too good not to!
We had a very pleasant dinner but I have to say the food was not exceptional. I ordered the filet Mignon and while it was a nice piece of meat, it did not have a lot of flavor. My husband ordered the ribeye and walked away saying the same. Sadly, I do not feel the food was worth the money spent.
We visited Brandywine Prime for the first time to celebrate a birthday. Michael B. was our server, and he was tremendous - warm, knowledgeable, attentive but not overbearing...just great!! Ask for him if you go or when making your reservation through OpenTable.
The special salad offered during our visit included arugula, roasted beets, pear, pine nuts...truly yummy. The steaks were good (I had rib eye, my dining partner the NY strip). My baked potato was the size of a small city:) and my partner's mashed potatoes were divine...I think he could have eaten a second order! The desserts were delicious - I had the chocolate pecan tart and my partner had the chocolate cheesecake, upon which Michael B ensured a lit birthday candle, along with Happy Birthday written on the plate. Nice touch.
The restaurant is split into the tavern (bar area) and the main dining room, separated by open doorways. It was busy and noisy, which is tough when trying to truly converse. We arrived at 7 and by 8 the noisiest groups had begun to clear out.
Please note - you cannot order a burger in the dining room...it's "tavern only" food.
Thanks to Michael B and all the staff at Brandywine Prime for a lovely meal!
We were out taking engagement photos and were in the mood for something light and tasty, so we stopped in one our favorites dining spots to grab the tuna tartare, grilled octopus and the spinach salad. The food is really good here and the tuna tartare is one of our menu favorites. Everything on the menu is delicious and it is a cool place to grab a quick bite at the bar or in the one of the dining rooms. The decor is great and there is a wonderful ambiance. The service is always great!!!
Atmosphere was great. Mood was great. Service was great. Food was great. The whole experience was great. A little pricey for the lower middle class, But great for that one time experience. I cannot leave this comment section without saying how great our server was, Craig, Alias Well was one of the best servers I’ve ever had wait on me. Thank you Craig.
Loud excitement with lots of diners downstairs. Quiet subdued dinner upstairs. This is our go-to place, but the food this trip was absolutely exceptional. Wonderful grouper special and terrific menu scallops (incredible sauce) with delicious mushroom vegetable side. The bread and butter is always great. Great service from Jerry (upstairs).
