Sunday Brunch is a Big Hit!

Visited Brandys on a special occasion for Sunday Brunch with a large group of family. It was our first visit to Brandys. Food was excellent. Special was ribeye steak & egg on a bagel. Outstanding! Signature Bloody Mary was very good. Martini menu was extensive and ones ordered were very good. Can... read more

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.

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

Finding Brandy's was a bit difficult, but we're glad we made the effort. The spinach salads were tasty, as were the filet mignon and tournados. We enjoyed the ambiance, although know that it can be a bit on the loud side. Service was very good (although our waitress could afford to "tone it down" a little). When ordering red wine,... More

I feel like I'm in Chicago at a swanky restaurant with great food! Love the whole menu! The staff is friendly and warm. A must go!

I was at Brandy's restaurant last night with a few friends. The food was excellent and the service was great! (Martini's. "Wow" what a selection). Recommend this restaurant. This will be a place we will visit often. Very impressed!!

Food is excellent with a large amount of items to choose from. This restaurant is on the smaller side & tables are mostly right by bar. Most of the tables have tall stools to set at which are hard to get up on & not the most comfortable. Also, when the crowd arrives it is quite noisy. We go midweek... More
