Located in the heart of the Brandywine Valley, Brandywine Prime is housed in a spectacular contemporary renovation of an historic 300 year old inn. The result is a modern American steakhouse specializing in preparations of fresh seafood and beef, and a modern Burger Bar with great happy hour specials. The old rooms at the Inn provide a perfect venue for rehearsals dinners, baby and bridal showers, private corporate events and intimate weddings from 10 to 100 guests.

The great atmosphere and good service add to the pleasure of eating here. I had the steak salad -- a good value. It came with just enough meat, about palm-sized. Wish more restaurants in the NY-NJ metro area were like this: great food, good wine choices, super comfortable seating, good low lighting, no blaring music. The frosting on the cake... More

Fridays in the bar area they have 2 half price burgers to choose from. Both are large and cooked to your liking. These were delicious however there can be a long wait to get a seat.

Here is the whole experience good and not so good... Parking is tight to say the least. It requires k turns and careful watching to get parked and unparked.

My husband and I decided to try Brandywine Prime during happy hour this week. Wine was $5 per glass, a good deal. They also have a limited discounted appetizer menu in the bar area. I had two appetizers which were okay. Next time I would try something else. My husband had a seafood chowder (good) and ordered a filet, which... More

We got to restaurant 20 mins before opening for lunch, and they were polite enough to let us (4 adults, 1 4 month old) wait in a comfortable warm location in the bar area.

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.
