We went here for our anniversary. The service was excellent and the food was phenomenal. We shared the Beef Wellington which was cooked to perfection. The sides were large enough to share, we had potatoes au gratin and the creamed spinach both were excellent. Very cozy and comfortable seating. Will be returning for our next big occasion.

We have eaten at Brafords many times. I have never been disappointed. Consistently excellent food and service. They have a couple of new staff members. Our server Karen was excellent. Very attentive and friendly. We were first greeted by Chyna, a lovely greeting. The manager Walter checked on our table twice, making sure o u r food and service was as expected. As usual my " bone in ribeye was to die for. My friends all had the filet and loved it. Side dishes are big enough too share. Highly recommend.

Our first time there. We went for my wife’s birthday. We had a fantastic meal and service. It was a bit pricey but for a special occasion I guess worth it. I read reviews on-line about questionable service. Maybe management read them as well and made some changes because it was impeccable and numerous people were assisting us throughout our meal. Though we didn’t want any of that birthday singing like other places, at least 3 times staff said happy birthday to my wife. And the steaks were excellent and my wife said it was the best filet minion she ever had. The waiter said it was from Montana from a special organic farm or something like that. Anyway we’ll definitely return next special occasion.

A little pricey but extremely high quality food. Would have liked white tablecloth and red wine bottle served at wine cellar temp for that amount of money.

This was my first time eating here but it hopefully will not be my last. The service and meal were outstanding. I had a Caesar salad which was perfect along with a Wagyu steak special they were running. The steaks were cooked to perfection with a nice salt crust and all the sides were wonderful (Au gratin potatoes and Brussel sprouts.) The restaurant was elegant without being stuffy and the waitstaff and hostess were friendly, attentive and warm. Don’t hesitate on this place!!

We enjoyed our meal on the patio which was quiet and relaxing. The wait staff was very attentive, but not obtrusive. The meal was delicious from salad to dessert.

Since the portions are so large, we were glad that our server suggested sharing an entree and then adding an additional salad. We were happy with the size of the split portion.

We celebrated our anniversary and the table was nicely decorated with red rose pedals and stemware. Our server was very friendly and attentive. And our salad and steak was excellent.
Our concerns began with the bartenders not wearing face masks and another change in the management. We have been going to the Brayford since it opened and we've seen both positive and negative changes. One other concern, if you have an Entertainment Book, was the Brayford no longer honors their coupon.
Unfortunately, last night there were two or three people at the bar and we were the only other couple in the restaurant.

No longer honoring Discount Coupons even though the coupon is still valid and the expiration date is months away.
They say this is due to a change in "management policy". A reputable business would not make such changes unannounced and while there are still valid discount offerings that were "purchased", which is different from "Free" discounts.
Prices are much higher than similar competition. When you are paying $48.00+ for an entree and the side dishes (potato, vegetable, sauces, are an additional $8.00 to $10.00, the $25.00 discount made the dining experienced more "enjoyable" as it was a little more affordable. A dinner for 2 with entree, salad, side and two drinks is upwards of $190.00 $200.00 with tip (may be more depending on drink choices). The Food and dining experience are not worth the high cost. There are other high end restaurants in the area that are just as good, with water front and open settings, (as opposed to a street and sidewalk view of people passing by only "inches" from the other side of our table side window) at much more reasonable prices.

Had the chateaubriand which was exceptional. Also had the crab cake and shrimp cocktail appetizers and they too were exceptional. The crab cake was quite large and mostly crab. The shrimp cocktail had 5 jumbo shrimp served with remoulade sauce. Perfection.

The restaurant was clean and the waitstaff friendly however unused wine glasses remained on a relatively small table far too long as did food plates that were empty. The acoustics of this restaurant are a bit of a problem. We arrive early and the restaurant was fairly empty and quiet but as time went on and the restaurant filled up the table conversations reverberated.

One at our table was celebrating his birthday. The restaurant provided a very nice and very large desert plate with happy birthday wishes however the very small piece of chocolate cake with a dollop of whipped cream and a couple of pieces of strawberries seemed disproportionately small (i.e., maybe two mouthfuls).

My wife and I both ordered the Prime Rib. When it arrived it was so tough that we had trouble cutting it. My wife couldn't chew it. She had to spit it into her napkin. The center of mine was raw. For the first time in my life I couldn't eat prime rib. We both returned our entrees to the kitchen and didn't ask for them to be replaced or comped. This is the 2nd time in a row that I couldn't eat my meal.
The drinks were great, as were the sides. But overall, this was a very disappointing birthday celebration.

When we arrived the hostess went to seat us and I saw that she was taking us to a hightop (I said that when I made the reservations I requested not a hightop), but she said that she did not see that so she sat us. The manager came over and said he apologize for the confusion and was cleaning a booth for us.
The staff was very nice and friendly the food was amazing! Thank you for making our 12 year anniversary special.

First time there. Very awesome food, service and ambiance.
Perfect date night atmosphere for my wife and I.
Thanks to the bartender who actually had our table. Great social distancing discipline. If you don't like the prices go somewhere else. The steak is very high quality.

Thanks to the Team that took care of us.

The Rack of Lamb w/ mint pesto was delicious. The 4oz. Beef filet with Scollops were also tender and flavorful. Really nice ambiance. Appreciate attention to detail example salad w/ homemade "Green Godess" dessing w/ chilled salad. Delectable dinner rolls. Cocktails Martini and Manhattan skillfully prepared and presented. Justin Cab Sav. and Joel Got Merlot paired wonderfully w/ our repast. Bring your Wallet. Would Highly recommend this establishment Gem in downtown Fort Pierce.

I must say that this restaurant has become our favorite. This is probably the 6th time I have eaten there and have never had poor meal. The selection of steaks is excellent. If you are looking for other options they have them. I must commend the the Maitre d. Bill can not do enough for you. We are greeted by Liz and always helpful with a lovely smile.

our favorite server is Gene, but they are all good.

fast becoming the place to go in St Lucie county

We had been wanting to visit since it’s opening because we thought the restaurant featured Adams Ranch beef, a popular local Florida rancher. We also had an Entertainment coupon. The manager would not accept the coupon, as he stated the name was no longer The Braford Steakhouse, but now is The Braford Presents The Fort. So, it wasn’t the Adams Ranch beef we wanted to experience. Main reason for going. The ambiance was very nice, quiet for a Friday night. A small seating area, with outside seating as well. Maybe 10 seats at the bar. Tammy, the bartender was fabulous, as was Gene, our server for the evening. Very knowledgeable and super friendly. Pricey and everything Ala Carte. A nice place for a special occasion, but not your weekly hangout.
