My husband and I drove into Peru one Sunday midmorning and found this place, we loved the bloody Mary's and our meal was excellent. Great service, all around a wonderful place to go. It was a little pricey but well worth it....love this place...we will be returning....thanks C.M.

I cannot believe this restaurant is almost 5 stars after visiting for first time with high expectations, we all left very disappointed. Had seafood player for 2, everything was over boiled by about 5-6 min and dried out. The sauces that came with were mayonnaise and ketchup tasting, the fillet medallions were dry and the sauce looked like diareah. The... More

Our favorite place for martinis! Atmosphere is warm and inviting...staff is sincerely friendly. Dinner is wonderful and breakfast is incredible and reasonably priced. When we want a treat we go to Brandys.

My fiancé and I have been going in to Brandy's for over a year, once we discovered the place. We always get great drinks( made by Jason) and the food is top quality every time we've been there. We've had several things on the menu and everything is good, but my favorites have to be the bison ribeye and the... More

We went here for brunch because we had heard good things about the brunch and we had a gift certificate. The French toast was incredible as was the cinnamon roll they provide as an appetizer! The biscuits and gravy were excellent and you could even see and taste the sausage in the gravy! You do not find that everywhere. The... More

Brandy's is a true gem of the Peru area. This is the second time I've been to brunch with friends at Brandy's. The food is fantastic and so are the cocktails!!! Fresh monkey bread is brought to the table to munch on while you wait for your food. It is to die for. At our table we ordered the french... More

We tried this restaurant for its very good reviews on T/A. The place was too noisy for my taste. We had sword fish (Very good), prime rib (Too fatty, could not eat nearly half) and double baked sweet potatoes (More like a dessert). Bread was nothing special. Service was good. Prices were somewhat above average. The beer list had no... More

This is our favorite place for dinner with family when we are the area. It is always a sure bet as far as excellent food goes. It is a bit loud at times but that never bothers us! Can't begin to enumerate the wonders on the menu. Everything we have ever tried has been perfect. The one dish that really... More

Brunch is my game. I could brunch all day long and have on a few occasions. Considering this is a small town joint, it was good. Worth the price. Good food, but didn't blow my mind. Bloody Mary was good, cinnamon rolls were amazing and coffee was nice. I was satisfied, but left feeling normal, unlike my usual brunch high.... More
