This is the second time we have eaten at Brandon's. The barbecued ribs and chicken were delicious, nice and moist. The onion rings were hand dipped and were excellent. The service was great too. A must if you're in the area.

We had reservations for dinner for a group of 20. It took almost 45 minutes to get our tea, water, or soda (no bar orders). It took another 20 minutes to get our food order and another 40 minutes to get our food. The wings and tilapia were frozen products and tasteless. The food arrived very cold and my particular...

Located new the entrance to Pipestem state park, we used their catering services for a family reunion which we held at Pipestem. They served a BBQ and Chicken dinner with the trimmings; everything was fabulous. Their BBQ is moist, lean and has a smoked flavor. The portions were large and everything was delivered hot. After we discovered how good they... More

We stopped here after a day on the water. It had a large selection of BBQ and sides. Like others have mentioned, its dry-rub BBQ but the flavor is very good! Atmosphere was lovely, very comfortable and what I would hope to encounter at a BBQ joint. Service was fast and friendly. Prices were reasonable. Overall, I enjoyed my dinner,... More

Enjoyed a lovely dinner at Brandon's with my wife we were seated quickly and was greeted by our server who did an excellent job taking care of us, sorry I missed noticing her name. We both enjoyed the onion ring basket as an appetizer. I have found for a BBQ place they have wonderful steaks so I enjoyed the Bourbon... More

The BBQ sandwich was good. The BBQ was dry rub mix. Tasty, but I prefer sauce-based BBQ. The wings - just like red heads - were not my type. They were fried with seasoning. I prefer grilled or baked wings slathered in sauce. The fried green tomatoes were good, but I was not crazy about the accompanying sauce. They have... More

Got the rib combo both 1/2's where dry. Baked beans from a can. I didn't even finish the ribs. Chilli's ribs are better. My son got catfish (fried) still had the skin on! Another member of our party got chicken strips all I can is banquet frozen chicken strips. Did even eat 1 of them.

I'm a BBQ fan, so Brandon's was the only "must-go-to" place on my dining list during vacation. The food and service were good, but, after all of the hype, I was missing the wow factor with my BBQ. The place was filled with regulars, so I'd say that it must be good.

I ordered the best steak they had. It was all fat and gristle. So thick and hard I almost broke a tooth. And I ordered it medium. No rolls or bread came with the meal, seriously? What fine restaurant doesn't have rolls?? I had met Brandons father a few months before I decided to eat there. I asked him about... More

Food was ok , waited an hour and a half before we received our food! No one even said sorry for taking so long! The owner was there and didn't seem to care! Will not return horrible service and don't care additude of the owner! I will find another place to spend my hard earned money!!
