First time at Brothers and I was very impressed with food, service and value. The menu was varied and all four of our meals we very good. The bar is well equipped. Service was great. It is in the middle of the block and does not stand out from the outside but certainly does on the inside.

The scallops entree was delicious! The cod fish was good but with very little ritz cracker crust. The mashed sweet potatoes were iffy because of some added ingredient (perhaps it was orange?). Not my taste. Nice waiter, very attentive.

We went for the musical venue they offered on the weekend. The food service is slow, and sometimes they forget things like water, the check. But overall the food is generally very good, as is the ambiance.

Brothers is one of my go-to places for lunch and dinner. The atmosphere is friendly, the servers are attentive, and the food is reliably good every time. Live music nights are a real treat, very intimate and entertaining.

A delightful evening! Great food and service, and even more wonderful band! The music was delightful in the background during the first set, and a very congenial performance of local and professional artists in the second set. The Winikers never fail to provide an enchanted evening of jazz with outstanding musicians!

I am so happy I went to Brother's for lunch yesterday. I was pushing it as they were still officially serving lunch/brunch but I did not want eggs or any of those items. They went out of their way to prepare the churrasco chorizo steak and chorizo combination for me. It was so flavorful and delicious. I really appreciated the friendly, welcoming customer service, flexibility, and the wonderful meal. The chimichurri on the steak was great and the chorizo was full of flavor. Awesome!

Great local restaurant with good, not too loud music on Saturday and Sunday. Limited wine list, full bar. Food is good, specials always worth serious consideration.

Good Food, low key neighborhood place. A great value for very good quality of food that is served. Nothing super fancy but well prepared favorites. Menu tends to feature seafood dishes but meat and vegetarian choices are a offered as well.

We had a fabulous time. Richard was wonderful. He was an excellent waiter. My goddaughters and I had crab cakes, calamari and bacon wrapped scallops and all were delicious. Our entrees were huge and all of us were Very Happy and full. Then came Delicious Desserts. We of course had “doggie bags” and left happy and full.
I have a friend who says breakfast is delicious at Brothers!

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Brothers. We had been meaning to dine there for ages. We knew they had music but we weren’t sure of the night or type of music. The trio plays Saturday nights. What a treat! Pleasant, enjoyable music. Not so loud you can’t have a conversation but you can also hum along or tap your foot, if desired. Folks from the restaurant join in on the 2nd set- really fun to see. O- the food! That was enjoyable too! Large portions so plan to take some home. The short rib was cooked perfectly & the sauce in the chicken piccata was very good. We were disappointed they were out of the hummus plate as 2 people in our party wanted that, but it happens. Overall, we will definitely return for the food, music and camaraderie! Thank you Brothers for a very enjoyable evening.

Visited Brothers because we stayed at nearby hotel to stay overnight for the Cirque du Soleil Show. Was very quiet when we arrived. Started to fill up with locals. So the reviews I read were corroborated by our experience and the locals patronage. I would recommend visiting this establishment.

The food was delicious, no problem there. I don’t understand, though, why we sat through most of our meal with empty beverage and water glasses when there were two waitresses for only four occupied tables (we went at an off-peak hour.) Our food was even brought out by the chef himself, so no idea what the waitstaff was doing...they were never even in sight to flag down to ask for water.

The music was great, as usual and the ambiance too. However, the crabcakes I ordered were inedible (rarely happens here), and they didn't have my choice of liqueur, although I am a regular who orders it everytime and for the past couple of months have been told they don't have it, in spite of the fact that they used to.

I will continue to go there for the Winiker evenings since I enjoy their music so much.

The food and service was great, and the live jazz band was so fun. But the ambiance and dining room needs some updating, and the AC was broken.

When we opened the menu and saw its large print, along with the bright lights in the room, it felt like we were at some sort of a facility and not at a neighborhood restaurant. Couldn't help but feel like something was off in the room. There wasn't anyone to meet us at the door and the bartenders were not paying attention to our arrival, despite appearing not to be doing anything but talking to each other. Our dishes were quite good, except for my husband's salmon which had no flavor. Appreciated the attention of the waiter who was helpful in getting us out in time to make a show, but this wasn't a place we'd have wanted to linger in anyway. Wish I wasn't giving this negative a review, but that's what it was like.

The food is delicious. It is a nice place for a brunch or breakfast. owners are very nice. There weak spot is in reservations - having one doesn’t appear to mean much in the way they manage tables.

The food and service on Mother's Day, one of the busiest was very good. I had a crab cake eggs Benedict and it was delicious. The campari mimosa was also very good! I highly recommend this place.

We took or family to Brothers on a Sunday evening to enjoy both the food and the Winniker Trio. It is a charming atmosphere, much like being in a friendly, welcoming club. The winners are great and the second half of the performance is by local talent, singers, drummers, trumpet players etc. performing while accompanied by the trio.
The food is excellent. Dishes from fruit de mare to ahi tuna to brick chicken were all delicious. The portions are very generous, the food fresh and beautifully prepared and served. Sautéed vegetables were crisp and lovely. We shall return often.

The service was very rude. I made a reservation, but there were no tables ready for us at the time of my reservation. We would have had to wait 20 minutes, so we were told to sit at the bar.

The server at the bar was very short with us. Asking clarifying questions about our order before we could even finish saying our order.

Finally, an entire tray of drinks was spilled next to me and splashed on me. No one apologized for the accident.

This was our first time at Brothers and it was fantastic. We read online that they can get busy on a Sat night so we made reservations on Open Table. We requested a high-top table in the bar area which was perfect. We came in for the live Jazz music of the Bill & Bo Winiker Band who play there every weekend. I was expecting it to be very loud with a full house and the music but surprisingly the music level and guests nose level were not loud at all. You could hear yourself talk. The wait staff was friendly, accommodating and we never had to wait to order drinks. Overall I found the atmosphere very warm and welcoming. The beer selection was great with a wide variety of great local breweries - we had the Down East Cider and for snacks we had the nachos with chicken.

Two years running we have hosted a 10 person family birthday celebration with Sunday breakfast at Brothers. Both celebrations very enjoyable, with very good food, excellent service and an informal and fun atmosphere. A basket of fresh coconut chocolate mini-muffins on every table. Try the new Healthy Omelette.

I went to Brothers the day after Valentines and the only Menu they were serving was the Valentines Menu which happened to be very similar to their regular menu but each entree was 5-6 dollars more expensive. Since this was my first visit to the restaurant and I’ve seen the Menu online this did not sit very well for me. I mentioned it to the waitress but there was nothing to be done about it.
That been said, the service was great and the food was good. The churrasco was delicious. Even though I enjoyed my experience I felt cheated and that is why I am not sure I’ll be back.

While we had reserved a table through Opentable, we still waited nearly 25 minutes to be seated. There was no point in reserving and the hostess was extremely inefficient. There were many parties waiting who were also quite annoyed. We were 3 people in the end and they sat us at a 2-top so it was highly uncomfortable. We have dined here a few times in the past for brunch and the food is always good, but this time the service and management of the crowded brunch time was awful. We will not be returning anytime soon, unfortunately.

My sister in law and I love to check out new places, for breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner, especially if there’s a full bar. The waitress was great, super nice and personable. Food was good, not great and the sticky floor throughout, was kind of a turn off. Place could use a good once over.

Good value & tasty fare. Service was friendly and our requests for side dish substitutes were carried out correctly. Really, my only complaint about Brothers is that they had not vacuumed the floor -- which made a negative impression.
