Excellent Steak Restaurant

We have a daughter who loves steak. Not wanting to brave the traffic and parking issues of center city Philly on a Saturday night, we were very happy to find an excellent steak house in the more suburban rural area of Chadds Ford. One or two steak selections on the menu were of prime graded beef... read more

One of my favorite destinations in Chester County, PA. Set in a historic building of natural field stone, this gem of a restaurant has consistently served great food and beverages. I dine at the restaurant about once a month often bringing other family members or friends. Each and every time we have had fantastic service, great food and good time.... More

Had brunch here today for the first time. Actually live nearby and didn't even know they offered brunch until today. Wasn't very busy so maybe they need to advertise a bit. Food was really very good but might have earned an excellent rating with some small attention to detail. First, I have never had to pay for coffee at a... More

We just came from the most wonderful lunch at Brandywine Prime. Everyone in our group of 5 raved about their choices which included prime rib, beef, burgers and chicken. Each meal was well-prepared and perfectly cooked. What made the experience even better was the ambiance including thick stone walls and rustic flooring. The building dates back well before the Revolutionary... More

We went early for a happy hour gathering with friends and stayed for the half price burger night. The service "Anthony" was very good - made sure we had what we needed but never rushed us. The burgers were good - with two to choose from a normal burger lover will have a good meal. It is nice they serve... More

We expected something better from this "prime" steak house. Our waiter Michael was obnoxious and dismissive of our questions. He seems to have a "schtick" (we saw him do it with every table) and was not happy that we interrupted it. The service overall was pedestrian at best. No one once asked us how our food was. And as for... More

While my family visits this great restaurant 3 times a year due to distance, we do visit on special occasions, and it has become a favorite Christmas Eve tradition, and we did so again tonight. We arrived 15 minutes early, greeted by the owner, and despite many empty tables we had to wait 15 minutes at the bar, which was... More

This is a great restaurant with terrific food. The building is very old - makes you really feel the ambiance of the area and its rich heritage. Be prepared to wait - even with a reservation and don't go without a reservation as this is a very popular spot with the locals. Service can be slow.

On our way to Longwood Gardens my girlfriend found the Italian restaurant next door so we headed over. The Italian restaurant had over an hour wait so we made our way to Brandywine Prime. The steak was amazing, as well as the lobster mashed potatoes and Keegan was a great waiter. I like to switch up restaurants but I would... More

I made a reservation for a party of 8 at 7:30 on Saturday evening - December 12th - requested a round table. We arrived at 7:30 - waited about ten minutes and were taken to our round table for eight. Good start, and it got better. The restaurant was packed, so we figured service might be less than great. We... More
