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!!

Met friends May 24th, they chose Brandon's. Was seated quickly, waitress was very friendly and helpful. Loved the atmosphere. Wife and I ordered the pulled pork, garlic cheese mashed potatoes and I got cole slaw and she got the fried green tomatoes. Food came out timely and they were very good portions, price was $11.99 so price was great. Pulled... More

If the weather permits, ask to be seated on the screened-porch. Excellent food, I highly recommend the bar-b-que dishes but have enjoyed everything from salads to desserts. Great service and atmosphere, relaxing, romantic and always clean. Take it from the "locals", this is one of our favorite eating places with a very good reputation locally.

Our family reunion (10 adults & 4 children) descended on Brandon's Saturday evening, October 12, 2013. It seems most everyone else in Pipestem, WV did so, too, given the flow through the front door and the kitchen's struggle to keep up. Everyone liked their meal, but it did take our food 30 minutes+ to arrive (= very noticed when you... More

A must visit while in the Pipestem, WV area. Service was very good and the ribs were fantastic. There were six in our party and everyone enjoyed their meals. Rustic décor and most enjoyable. Owner is on site and makes it a priority to visit with all of his guests during their dining experience. Make sure to try the peanut... More

Brandon's is hidden within the woods across from the entrance to Pipestem Resort. It is located on the Nostalgia Inn complex. Brandon's serves great barbeque along with great steaks. The atmosphere is relaxed and during the warmer months, it is a treat to dine on the huge screen-enclosed porch. Service is always excellent.

Nice atmosphere and good food. Enjoyed sitting on the patio for lunch. 1/2 rack of ribs were good, but small (4)
