Small but a fine establishment

We came here to celebrate my mom's birthday. It's located just West of the Route 251 bridge and located next door to the Water Street Pub. It is small only about 10-15 tables and reservations are recommended especially for dinner. I ordered the chicken alfredo for dinner and the portion sizes are... read more

While spending two nights in Peru, I was pleasantly surprised to find such a great restaurant. The ambiance reminds me of a good place in Charleston or Chicago or Paris. The entire evening, there was an energy, an electricity, a festive aura throughout the restaurant, with customers and the entire staff (who were worked hard and nonstop). The drinks were... More

The only thing I can start with is, "Why haven't I been here before?" I visit the Illinois Valley often, and can't believe I haven't eaten here before. Won't make that mistake again, as I plan to have this on my recurring visit list when I am in town. This is a small place, so get a reservation or get... More

One of our local favorite restaurants to go to, whether it be for a drink after work or a nice casual dinner, if you are a fan of martinis they have a very large selection to choose from...staff is very friendly and personable

This place is great for special occasions or every now and then dining because it is pretty expensive but their food is delicious! Everything we have had there has been excellent. They have great appetizers and their prime rib, pasta, and steaks are amazing. They also have a great martini list.

Signature Bloody Mary was very good. Martini menu was extensive and ones ordered were very good. Can not wait until in LP area again to... More

Stayed in Peru for about a week, and Brandy's was by far the best place for food and drinks I visited! Grey Goose Martini was soooo good! A very good find!

After researching Brandy's we decided to stop last time we were in town. I had to use Mapquest to find it but am I glad we did. Once inside, we found a beautiful clean restaurant and we were seated within a few moments. We came during the week, but was told that seats are hard to come by on the... More
