Great food and party place; BUT, if you are a vegetarian, you are in trouble. Best cuts possible and tender.

We visited the Branded Butcher after visiting several other well-reviewed restaurants in the Athens and leaving disappointed. Our luck changed here! They were extremely accommodating and our server the consummate hostess. The atmosphere is inviting and the space feels like a small NYC art gallery tucked inside a bustling southern college town. We quite literally tried almost everything on the... More

This place knew EXACTLY how to make a proper old fashioned. It was flawless. They also had an interesting spin on one they called a post prohibition style that was excellent. Beers were local and food was insane

What an ecstatic gustatory experience my husband and I had there! From first to last, the service was excellent and matched by creative drinks, an excellent wine menu, and completely mouth-watering appetizers and entrees. I would recommend this restaurant unreservedly, except if you are a vegan. This is not a place for those addicted to carbs... Here are some specifics:... More

Excellent food. Exceptional service. Confit pork belly is like butter! Wine list is well thought out. Gulf shrimp sausage was amazing. Just a phenomenal food experience.

After reading reviews we decided to give this restaurant a try. It was busy , so we opted for a table outside on the back porch. We ordered a fancy beer and a cocktail that was very unusual, but good. Our appetizer came early and we dug in only to be told we were given the wrong order ...the pigs... More

We have been to this restaurant twice in the last year. The service is great and very personal. The food is exquisite. My favorite is the Scottish eggs.

Yes. I am a foodie, so have this type of food a lot. I had given up in Athens. No one recommended this place, which is difficult to understand since it is far above any other restaurant I have experienced over the many years I have been coming here. Just found it by walking by, but I would say it... More

This understated eatery is somewhere that from its name alone you would believe is was an American Pub Grub/BBQ kinda joint. And when you take a glance at the prices you're thinking what I am spending my money on. Well let me tell you its totally worth every penny. The Seared Fillet is out of this World Amazing, its totally... More
