Great Sundy Brunch

I really enjoyed the fresh salads and fruit. Lots of choices from seafood, eggs, carving station and desserts. Nicely paced. Not rushed. Great service.

Wonderful quality food, nice atmosphere. The steak (filet mignon) was cooked to perfection. The bartender is no slouch either. She makes a wicked martini. And I'm particular about my martinis!

I really want to love this restaurant because it is so convenient. However, I've eaten here three times in the last year and although we had reservations, we had to wait at least 15 minutes each time. The service is spotty and poor during our last visit. The food is delicious but too expensive.

We landed at Brandywine Prime only after have a terrible, terrible experience at Blue Pear Bistro. I was starving but it was late so we only ordered light fare.

Dined at Brandywine Prime on a cold Tuesday evening in March and it was still full, a testament to its excellence. Cheerful reception, prompt seating, efficient and courteous service. The Boss had an excellent chicken dish; I had shrimp with lobster risotto (out of this world). Learned the secret of a great grilled romaine salad: toss on the grill immediately... More

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.

It is so rare to find a special on a Friday night that makes the evening special as well. Brandywine Prime offers that so stop on by for nice end of the work week or start to the weekend!
