First time here since it was the old "Chadds Ford Inn". You can order wine and cocktails from the bar/wine list or BYOB of wine which entails a very reasonable $5 corkage fee. We sat upstairs away from a lively downstairs bar. Very nice atmosphere and attentive waitstaff. The food portions were perfect. Everything was seasoned to perfection and didn't... More

The Prime does something I have never experienced before. Taking the very best meat available, on Friday nights, Prime offers half price hamburgers served with a huge pile of piping hot fries. We treat ourselves and friends to this to this meal at least once a month. The restaurant is crowded, and there have been times we stood at a... More

First night in this area and we found a winner when we ate here. The food was excellent, served promptly, and beautifully. The wait staff was attentive, helpful, and friendly. Good wait staff will enhance you enjoyment in dining. The atmosphere was lovely and inviting. Definitely a place to go to again and again.

Had Valentine's dinner at Brandywine Prime. I had the prime rib and my husband had the ribeye. Best steaks we ever had. Make sure to save room for dessert. The warm honey crisp apple tart was wonderful. Great waitstaff, even with them being fully booked the service was never lacking. Can't wait to go back.

Excellent menu! The servers are experts on ingredients, preparation, and are genuinely interested in making your dining experience a good one. I can say nothing negative. Good food, good wine, good company! We will go again on our next trip to Chadds Ford!

Title pretty much says it all, liked the atmosphere and the people there were super friendly, I'd go back for drinks and aps but wouldn't spend top dollar on average steaks.

We had a bad experience and reviewed Prime previously. The owner apparently monitors or is notified of reviews and contacted us asking us to give them another try on him. We were greeted by the owner when we arrived(we didn't say who we were) and the service was what you would expect at a quality restaurant. The wine list was... More
