    We were in the area looking for dinner Brothers came up, Very nice restaurant with an open kitchen , our server was very nice and attentive. Apps were good, Calamari and flash fried shrimp, the roumalade sauce was a little salty for our taste. The main courses Seadfood Mac and Cheese, Salmon. Again both were salty to us, the Brussel spouts looked cooked but were hard inside . Overall for the cost we expected a higher level of food.

    This was one of the most wonderful dining experiences I have ever had in all of my 45 years of life on this earth. Everything about this evening was effortless and smooth. Kudos to the chef because EVERYTHING was exquisite and absolutely delicious. We tried a little of everything and nothing disappointed. From lamb chop appetizer & grilled Caesar salad, to crab cakes, ribeye steak, salmon and shrimp. All of the side dishes were delectable as well. Don’t be afraid to try new things. I came with my college aged daughter & a few girlfriends. But I will be bringing my parents back & this is also a great spot for a date night. The performing band was RAJAZZ & they were amazing as usual. New favorite restaurant.

    The service, atmosphere and food were amazing. I can't remember our server's name; I believe it was Rishona maybe. She was amazing and every recommendation that she gave us concerning our dining experience was on point. We will definitely come back to this establishment.

    Awesome experience. Food presentation is just like fine dining in elite restaurants. Food was tasty and seasoned just right. Smooth jazz music and soft lighting makes it a great place for adult dining for dates or for unwinding after a stressful work day. The owner stopping by our table was an added plus. Highly recommend.

    This was our first time at Brothers and we enjoyed it. The only thing I didn't like was how long I had to wait to get service after I had been seated. And the waiter seems to never be in site to get his/her attention was difficult. Not saying they need to stand on the floor but just be a little more attentive on check on the quest. WE will be back to support.

    I love this restaurant, but as our second time coming it did not live up to the excellence we experienced the first time we went, back in September 2021. Our first time, every single thing we ordered was delicious, and we felt like even though the prices were high, the quality of the food and overall experience justified it. This time, not so much… Positives: (1) our waitress was wonderful- very attentive and very patient; (2) our drinks (we both got the special, a peach sangria, and then I got the “Boss Lady,” a Prosecco and St. Germain cocktail) were great; (3) our appetizers (the jumbo fried shrimp and fried calamari) were also delicious. Negatives: (1) my boyfriend ordered the ribeye steak and added lobster tail, which were both cold when he got them. This entree with his add-on was $80, and it just wasn’t worth the price; (2) I got the fried scallops, which came with Parmesan risotto and I subbed the asparagus for maple brussel sprouts. The brussel sprouts were…admittedly awful. I wish they were cooked differently and crispier or something, but they were so hard to chew and seemed like they had been boiled after being frozen. The fried scallops were just okay- I wish they weren’t fried (but I knew they were going to be when I ordered them so that’s on me) and the meat itself was good. The Parmesan risotto was also okay— maybe just a tad bit too salty. We probably will come back because we do love the ambience of then place and there were some great positives, and the owner did come by and introduce himself, which we appreciated. Just need some quality control on certain items.

    I will say I had an AMAZING time! The service was exceptional, I accidentally booked my reservation for the wrong date. I was in town for my graduation and called and the staff was very polite. I emailed later to check in, and much to my surprise the morning of my graduation I see they’d changed it according to my needs. I was happy to arrive and get checked in with my party promptly. We each ordered different things and drinks. All of which arrived in a good time and tasted GREAT. Jess or server did an amazing job, while I didn’t get enjoy the live jazz this time around. Next time I come in from Texas I’ll be sure to catch the live music. It was nice to experience an African American owned business that offers what Brother’s does. Thank you for helping me enjoy my GRADUATION weekend! 🍾❤️

    Our food took to long to receive. We were almost finished our cocktails by the time we received our meals. Also, did not see the 18% gratuity when looking at the online menu (even for a party of two). The service could have been better for the menu price point and added 18% gratuity. Our male waiter was not attentive to us.

    Very good food by up and coming restaurateurs. A nicely balanced menu means everyone should find something to like. Our lobster Mac and cheese was phenomenal as was the roasted chicken. Cocktail menu was extensive and the wine list very reasonable The owners are on site and keep a close eye on everything. We’ll be back for sure.
