Stopped in this unique bistro style restaurant while staying at the local marina. What a pleasant surprise with the awesome foods, friendly staff and any kind of martini you can imagine!!! We had a blast and will definitely go back!

Second visit. As good as the first. On the Illinois River waterfront, a little hard to find. Nice cozy little place (probably old warehouse) very pleasant atmosphere. Service was great even though a slow night. Had a shrimp cocktail (shrimp was awesome) cocktail sauce needs a little kick. Had the 8os Filet and it would rival Ruth Chris, perfection. Ordered...

This was our first visit. My wife and I went with two other couples. Both other couples had been there before. I enjoyed the bistro atmosphere with the exposed brick wall. The layout is long and narrow and though it was a warm summer evening, our seats near the window were very comfortable.The martinis were excellent. I would have preferred... More

I visited Brandy's with 6 co-workers. It is a small place -not sure if they take reservations. There is a long list of martinis and specialty drinks - some of our group sampled, and they looked very good. The dinner menu is interesting. Bison, some nice fish entrees. The portions are very large - be prepared to bring some food... More

This was our first visit here and definitely not our last! My husband ordered the prime rib which was $21.95. This included a salad, vegetable, and choice of potato which he ordered the double baked sweet potato. I ordered the French onion soup which was $5 something and a garden salad. We also ordered mixed drinks and mushrooms for an... More

This place is in a small town in the middle of Illinois but certainly it tastes as good as any NYC restaurant though with all of the charm of the midwest. I had the prime rib and it was one of the best I have had in years. Would certainly recommend this to anyone who is passing through and looking... More

Brandy's is an amazing place to go for food and drinks. Whether it is with friends or with family. Brandy's is my families choice to celebrate... we celebrate all our birthdays here, along with anniversaries, and just about anything else that comes up. The food is amazing, and the drinks are awesome. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

Okay... So this brunch I have been hearing about has surpassed all my expectations! The cinnamon rolls are heaven on a plate (and complimentary)! Breakfast was extremely reasonable if not less expensive then the chains in town and the portions were extremely generous. Totally recommend the country fried steak! Enjoy.

First of all, make reservations! My wife and I went here for dinner on a weekend getaway. We picked this restaurant because of the high rating on Trip Advisor, but we should have made reservations because when we got there we had to end up sitting at the bar which I hate doing but we had no other choice.
