We've been to Branch a couple of times and we are always pleased with the food and the drinks. The servers are well versed in drinks and can make great recommendations. The food specials are excellent.

We enjoyed our time at Branch Whiskey Bar so much that we went back for drinks again the next night. For our first visit, we chose Branch because it looked lively and inviting on a quiet night. The food was great and the service was super friendly. The second night, we went back just for drinks and weren't disappointed. The... More

We had dinner here on a Sunday night - we lucked out and found a parking space right in front of the restaurant. This street has lots of restaurants - and this block has 3. Branch is in a neat older building. It is a nice atmosphere with a variety of people having dinner. The food is great - and... More

Best mac n cheese in town but I did prefer the truffle mac n cheese they served last year. Fantastic Wiskey assortment. Food service is slow but that is because they make everything fresh so its worth the wait

Food was great, beer was awesome. Everyone in the venue was having a good time. My partner had already ordered and I was late arriving, no worries. Staff allowed me to order and get in a drink before the kitchen closed. Yum yum..

On my first visit, two friends and I stopped in on a whim because our original destination was closed for remodeling. A couple of us weren't big meat eaters, and there were only 2, maybe 3, non-meat-heavy choices on the menu. We opted for veggie burgers pretty much by default, worried that they'd be boring (as veggie burgers often are).... More

Not only does Branch serve a great variety of drinks, but offers a savory menu. My company had a business dinner at Branch it was lovely. Our waiter/bartender was fantastic.

Great casual place for dinner. Great Texas style bbq. Been here twice, once on business and once with my wife and son. Very good selection of whiskey, of course and local brews. Cool atmosphere and very casual.
