An amazing find in the Illinois Valley!

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... read 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.

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 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

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
